WTF #Comcast / #Xfinity? Can you say billing #fraud or is your software and your people really this incompetent? Anyone know of a class action lawsuit going yet over inaccurate data metering with +XFINITY ? This is figure 1 in the complaint I'm preparing against them for the Governor's Office of Consumer Affairs. A "Representative" from their "Security" department told me this morning this was normal. Apparently some data is sneaking into my modem without going through my router and the single cat5e cable connecting them.  When I called his bluff and told him I was a Technology executive he told me to scan for viruses. I guess he's inept enough to believe a virus can use data from my computer through the modem without passing through the router? It's a single purpose modem, by the way, not a combo modem/wifi router. I made that clear to him, he didn't get the distinction.

Wow.  We don't know, but we'll bill you for it.  And again, count on the idea that 90% of people don't check the line items.

Want to run tasks on a schedule or queued but don't want to deal with a windows service, windows task scheduler, or even cron jobs?

Not living up to expectations... Go figure.

Apple is up to its evil ways again. This is a rerun of their ebook mobster price fixing racket. This time they want to use their weight to rid consumers globally of free music streaming services. #boycottapple
 
DOJ sets its sights on Apple as the company goes after Spotify to ditch free streaming.

Apple is nothing if not aggressive in any space in which it chooses to "compete." I've intentionally used quotation marks as it seems to me that Apple would rather not share space with any competitor.

The Department of Justice is looking closely into Apple’s business practices in relation to its upcoming music streaming service, according to multiple sources. The Verge has learned that Apple has...

Well said.
 
Apparently +Gawker and staff believe in 1) the money fairy, and 2) that people being injured and livelihoods being taken away are somehow good for the economy.

Note to author: the money to rebuild comes from somewhere.  If it's from taxes, then it's money that could have been used to build parks, repair roads, fund a new hospital, repair water mains, etc..

If it comes from insurance, then it becomes part of the next year's calculations for everyone in that pool, and their rates will likely increase.  That means money out of their balance sheets/checking accounts that also could have been used for other things, including savings which then goes to capital for other projects.

No matter where the money to rebuild comes from, between the time a store was burned down and the day it reopens, there's no revenue and no jobs/paychecks from it.  For people who live check to check (which is way too many people anyway) that's a back breaker.

The broken glass hypothesis is a ridiculous one that ignores the fact that the money used to fix it came from somewhere and would have been used anyway.
Smirking St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch took his robes off long enough on Monday to announce to the world that the killer of Mike Brown would face no criminal charges. In lieu of the usual grand jury process wherein the prosecutor says it wants an indictment and then the grand jury automatically gives it to them, McCulloch clearly did everything he could to make sure officer Darren Wilson would never face a trial. In the w...

Oh boy. WSJ says Google's wireless service may debut tomorrow.

According to a late breaking story out of the Wall Street Journal, Google could debut its wireless service as early as tomorrow. The report states that an unveiling could take place Wednesday, but obviously, nothing is confirmed at this time. Their report mentions Google's wireless service ...

I think they copyrighted it too, we might be infringing just by talking about it.

Get ready to see a section for Family-Friendly apps in +Google Play.
The Google Play Store is full of great apps, but not all of them are suitable for children. Recently Google has made a push to bring kid-friendly content to the forefront.

When George R.R. Martin released A Game of Thrones in 1996, he helped to change the game with his grounded approach to fantasy tropes. At the same time, people sometimes talk as though Martin was the first to bring realism to epic fantasy. So here are 10 other authors who were doing "gritty" fantasy before Martin.

These are the rudest, most incompetent people on the planet. Do yourself a favor and go to a ups store.

This place is a JOKE. Lowe's stuck me with them to repair my washing machine under the protection plan. (THANKS LOWES!). Tech came out, diagnosed, said they needed to order a part. He said someone would call me. It's been 7 days. Nothing. Try to call them, straight to voice mail. All WEEK. I left a message. Still waiting. Avoid these guys like the plague. If you get stuck with them for warranty service, try to ask for someone else. Anyone else.
