The unfortunate thing being that what we say actually doesn't matter. The FCC is a non-elected group of officials who have, more or less, carte blanche to do what they want...and those folks work (or worked) for the major providers out there. I'm sure they're more than happy to be called all kinds of names in… » 9/15/14 2:49pm Yesterday 2:49pm

Something that I'd really love to be able to do is change the email address associated with my account. When I first did teh gmail integration thing I wasn't thinking and linked up to a gmail account I had created just to manage my son's baseball team. Now that season is long over, but I can't figure out how to… » 9/15/14 12:39pm Yesterday 12:39pm

Eh, I dunno about that - focusing on specs isn't something that a lot of people do (though obviously many do as well). AS someone who ran iphone for years, and has now been on android for about a year or so, I'd say that they're both excellent devices/ecosystems. Do I miss the iphone? Eh, I miss airplay. Will I… » 9/15/14 10:06am Yesterday 10:06am

I'm pleased to say that I did just that about 2 years ago and actually had no issues. My contract was up with comcast so they didn't have a leg to stand on, and (at least in my case) the FIOS setup was no problem. Dude showed up around 10 minutes after the start of my "installation" window (I live in a new building,… » 9/11/14 2:25pm Thursday 2:25pm

As someone who has seen mantis shrimp in action in an aquarium setting, I can confirm, the things are freakin badass evil. They can crack glass they hit so hard (depending on the variety). A shrimp that size could have done some SERIOUS damage for sure. » 9/05/14 2:05pm 9/05/14 2:05pm

Looks more like a samsung phone now, which is disappointing. I'm in the fortunate position, as part of my job, to play with lots and lots of hardware, which includes the moto x (last year) - and it's a fantastic phone. I love my HTC M8 as well (and have kept that on as my primary device for now) but what made the… » 9/05/14 1:55pm 9/05/14 1:55pm

Just as an FYI, for any like me who were considering stopping in on a best buy to "see it", as motorola's website suggests (on the buy it page), don't bother: they only have them as an online order (at least in NJ). I like everything I've heard about it, but not planning on pulling the trigger until I can lay hands… » 9/05/14 1:47pm 9/05/14 1:47pm

I don't think we can really judge based on this. Did MS take online preorders and/or open online ordering today? If so maybe the Japanese gamer has just gotten smarter than the rest of the world and knows there's no reason to line up. Maybe PC gaming is still king over there. Maybe the lack of a pokemon title (or… » 9/04/14 8:25am 9/04/14 8:25am

I waited on line for the iphone once. For the 3G version because, as I recall, they didn't do pre-orders. I got to the store at 5AM and was around the 30th person on line (this is in the suburbs) - as it turned out, they only got 35 phones in or something like that, and there were activation issues...but even so by… » 9/03/14 2:49pm 9/03/14 2:49pm

As a die hard Giants fan my ONLY real objection to this article is referring to the Giants as a shitty team that occasionally wins a superbowl. 4 superbowls since 86 (with an appeaerance, and horrid soul sucking loss in the fifth) - more than any other team in that time period (Pats, Cowgirls, Niners all come in with… » 9/03/14 2:03pm 9/03/14 2:03pm
