No one is 'getting away' with anything. The article suggests the possibility of such a thing. Not an example of an actual company announcing this as policy. The article is clearly leftist pablum designed to elicit responses like yours. Don't get sucked in. The real facts are that internet providers are still regulated by the FTC and you always have the option to file suit if they breach their service contract. So it isn't 'anything goes' like ...
Re: Ajit Pai is one class A piece of crap
Nope. Pai is awesome. This is great news. As if some unelected bureaucrats had ANY business controlling the internet.
Online Orders Will NOT Arrive Before Christmas!
If Apple's website is to be believed, ship times are at 4 weeks as of today (12/13/2106).
Re: Use WiFi?
While that is certainly true, I personally know some cheap ass SOB's who have a death grip on their unlimited plans and have hacked their phones to so as to let them tether their device to provide unlimited internet to their homes and offices. Just because they're cheap conniving people. This group is almost certainly a significant demographic of anyone using over 100gb per month of mobile data.
Re: Free Enterprise
@stepintime......I have degrees in accounting and finance and completely disagree with YOU. Price controls just create poor quality and shortages. Even Nixon tried it and failed. How much failure do you leftists have to experience before you finally admit your economic ideas are completely discredited?
Re: No night shift on older iPhones
Let's hope it comes in a future update. Apple has been pushing frequent minor updates of late.
Maybe they could rebrand their inconsistent, and often rude/incompetent customer service too.
Re: $800 and what?
Amazing. This article doesn't have a damn thing to do with Apple, but you manage to troll Apple as the sole point of your post anyway. Fandroid trolls like you are incapable of much else, with your hard wired little brains. You probably spend your time angrily browsing Apple's website, bitterly jerking yourself off.
Exactly. It just goes to the government. Which might as well be a black hole. You and I will never see a dime of it. And you know that these costs are passed along to the consumer. The FCC is just another evil regulatory group siphoning outer freedoms.
Re: Oh no, thought republicans were against big government?
So.......your response to hypocritical behavior from republicans is to exalt that same behavior in progressives, which is the same thing, but on steroids? Really? You sound like my communist aunt. She points out some fault in a Republican then explains that somehow the same crap times ten from the democrat alternative is somehow 'better'. If I had my way, I would summarily executed very one of you statist progressive democrat pukes as traitors. And I would cleanse the Republicans ...
I Hate Facebook
I hate Facebook. It disgusts me that here is an entire phone asked around it. I will be very apply when this fad ends and I read of Zuckerberg's inevitable fatal overdose.
I use it on occasion. Fun to throw out in a conversation once in a while.
Re: Bad Form by the Gov
@bearofpanda: You support this because it keeps you safe? The government could mandate wearing a helmet 24 hours a day using that good. The fact is that this is invasive and not what the federal government is for. That you are a California resident supporting this is no shock. You people have made your state a bankrupt nightmare with excessive government intrusion, at prices you can't afford.
Too Much Government
This is yet another thing government does not need to be involved with. They do too many things already, which are incredibly invasive and cost money we do not have. I say, no further!
They change for a large company because it's easier than having the large company move. If you move, it's just you and your Warbound. Illinois did the right thing. Their business taxes are uncompetitively high. They don't have to lower their taxes, but no one has to stay there either. Odds are these kinds of changes might even bring more business to Illinois and their tax revenue will go up.
Re: 1.5Ghz ? Tri core,WOW . im happy with the 1ghz snap already
The new chipsets will be probably be more power efficient overall when not under heavy use. The third core is likely very efficient and will handle the basic phone and light menu functions. The other cores may be more efficient also, as they will be less likely to generate heat with their higher potential clockspeed. That aside, I completely agree with the need for significant advances in energy storage technology.
Re: So what we show here is...
There is big difference between choosing to buy something with feature you might not use and having an entire product type carry that feature because of a legal mandate. I neither want nor need an FM radio built into my phone. Nor should I be required to have one because the RIAA are greedy scum and the CAB are little cowards who want to push their problems off on cell phone manufacturers.
Re: It's true
Contrary to what other posters claim, T-mobile DOES support tethering at no additional charge via a USB cable. I base this on my recent discussion with a T-mobile rep. He brought this up as a selling point for t-mobile over Verizon (my current carrier).
Re: It's true...but not really...
Whether they apply additional charges or throttle back from normal bandwidth, it constitutes a form of 'data cap', albeit at 10gb. That is not the same as 'no data cap'. The real point is that T-mobile, or any wireless carrier for that matter, should train their reps to accurately represent the limitations of their service plans. It should not be a necessity to fact check what these people say. That is an incentive to conduct my business ...
Re: It's true...but not really...
In my same conversation with the T-mobile rep, he said tethering WAS in fact allowed, and is free of additional charges. This was presented to me as a selling point.
The plaintiff's claim that the T-mobile salesperson represented there was no data cap is accurate. Just last week, I was at a T-mobile store in WA State shopping for new service and was also told there was absolutely no data cap. They were quite emphatic about that fact. It seems odd that they would train their employees to misrepresent something like this, when it will clearly lead to legal difficulties.
