[Editorial] VZW's CEO Claims Heavy Internet Users Should Pay More Than Everyone Else

Feb 26, 2014 - 9:59 AM - by dgstorm

For most of us, the roles(s) we play in life color our perspective of the world. Because of this, it's sometimes challenging to see things from "other people's shoes." This begs the question though... is it harder for a billionaire CEO of a billion+ dollar corporation to understand the perspective of the average working-class American consumer, or is it harder for them to understand his point of view?

Regardless of the philosophical debate that question might spark, we have a prime example of this to share with you today. Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam recently made some potentially inflammatory statements...

Google Creates Dedicated Chromecast Forum

Feb 20, 2014 - 9:07 AM - by dgstorm

This has to be one of those instances when you wonder why they hadn't done it already, but apparently Google does things in their own time. They just created a dedicated forum for their Chromecast. It's obviously designed to give folks a place to get tech support, info and other help regarding the streaming super-device. There are already FAQ videos and tutorials up and ready for your perusal.

Here's a link for you to check it out: https://productforums.google.com/for...rum/chromecast

Thanks for the tip, Jeffrey!

FCC Already Working on Plan to Fix Net Neutrality and Save The Internet

Feb 12, 2014 - 10:17 AM - by dgstorm

It almost sounds like the plot of some Hollywood thriller, but a new report indicates the FCC is trying to stay one step ahead of the dark forces threatening Net Neutrality. They are already working on a plan to circumvent the recent results which damaged the heart of a free an open internet.

In case you missed it, a few weeks ago we reported that Net Neutrality was dealt a potentially "lethal" blow by the combined forces of Verizon, AT&T and several other cable companies, telecoms and ISPs. On January 14th, 2014 a United States Court of Appeals Judge for the District of Columbia ruled against the FCC, and basically gave ISPs the power to oversee and control any internet content across their service. This would mean the ISPs could block/restrict/data cap/charge more for any content they wanted to, and for any reason.

This was a major blow to the FCC's power to insure a free and open internet. Luckily, the FCC was prepared for this possibility and a new report indicates they are already putting a plan in motion to bypass this ruling. Here's their idea...

Lenovo Close to $3 Billion Deal to Buy Motorola from Google

Jan 29, 2014 - 3:33 PM - by dgstorm

Update: This story is now official. Google will be selling Motorola to Lenovo. Here's a link to the official press statement from Google: Lenovo to Acquire Motorola Mobility from Google ? Investor Relations ? Google

This almost sounds like an April Fool's Joke, but we are nowhere near April. According to multiple reports from major news organizations like Reuters, CNBC and others, Lenovo may actually be in final talks with Google to purchase Motorola for $2.91 Billion USD. According to "sources close to the matter" this would be Lenovo's way of buying themselves into the lucrative but difficult to break into U.S. smartphone market. Here's a quote with more of the details,

Lenovo is in the final stages of talks to buy the Google division that includes smartphones Moto X and Moto G as well as certain patents, and an announcement could come as soon as Wednesday, the people said.

The Chinese firm will use a combination of cash and stock as well as deferred payments to finance the deal with Google, the people said, asking not to be named because the matter is not public.

Lenovo is being advised by Credit Suisse Group while Lazard Ltd advised Google on the transaction, the people said.
This came way out of left field and blind-sided us, but in many ways doesn't seem that surprising. From the beginning, Google really only wanted...

T-Mobile Launches New Attack... Against the Banking Industry?

Jan 22, 2014 - 10:13 AM - by dgstorm

T-Mobile has been on a roll lately. Ever since they got fired up and started rattling off new phases in their Uncarrier initiative, they have been making other carriers sweat from the massive value and changes they offer to consumers. Apparently, shaking up the wireless carrier industry isn't enough for T-Mo though. Now it looks as if the Uncarrier wants to disrupt the banking industry as well!

T-Mobile officially announced their new program called, Mobile Money. It's basically a checking account for T-Mobile wireless subscribers. This isn't just some gimmicky expensive account which only the elite can afford either. In fact, their account structure is ultra-competitive, offering free activation, free monthly maintenance and free ATM withdrawals at any of the carrier’s 42,000 in-network partner ATMs. Furthermore, there is no fee for replacing lost or stolen cards and there are no minimum balances required.

Here's what T-Mobile's boisterous CEO, John Legere had to say regarding this new program...

Nexus 8 Tablet Tipped for Mid-2014 Launch

Jan 21, 2014 - 4:20 PM - by dgstorm

The latest Android tablet rumor to hit the news bin is that Google is planning to release a Nexus 8 tablet in the middle of this year. Supposedly, the success of the Apple iPad Mini has forced Google to take notice and offer a compelling alternative in that size range. One other interesting thing to note about this rumored Nexus 8 tablet is that Google is mulling over using Intel's Bay Trail architecture instead of NVIDIA or Qualcomm this time.

The rumor also suggests that the device will not be LG-made which has been speculated previously. Currently Asus is...
