These app permissions sure seem like they're getting out of hand... Why does my My Verizon Mobile app need permissions to take pictures and video, or why does my Kindle app need to know the phone status and identity all of a sudden? After checking around I feel a little bit better about it... [ http://bit.ly/1kbkP2X ]... just a little... 
Knowing when to be concerned over application permissions — and when not to be — is tricky and important We've all heard about bad apps that steal your valuable data and ship it off overseas, and those discussions always end with one thing -- someone says you need to read an app's permissions before you install it.  Well that's fine, but there is a small problem -- what the heck do...

Grrrr...   Now I get why Asurion isn't worth money... ever. [ http://buswk.co/1mi14qq ]. You pay monthly, if you file a claim, they charge you $100, send you a broken version of your phone, then send a cheap replacement and pocket the difference. Verizon changes over to a new set of phones and acts like its not their problem.  Asurion's has lost my business for sure, and if I find a better deal (and for sure I'll be looking), Verizon Wireless might lose me too...

Arrgh.... downloaded RHEL 7.0...[http://red.ht/1lkBfK3] to poke around and see some of the updates (including docker 1.0 baked in). Tried to install it on vmware 10.0.2 and it won't recognize the disk!! Yeah, I know...up to RHEL 6.x is supported, but I figured it'd just deny me some extras like shared folders, not give up before even getting started...   #rhel7  #docker #vmware

Good article [ http://bit.ly/1jEECYT ].  I like the comment:  ".. Moreover, the typical IT investment is evolving. It's transitioning from a legacy focus on technology and processes, to a focus on new business models and associated strategic outcomes that are purposefully enabled by digitalization...".

Over time, I've given some thought to switching to T-mobile [http://ti.me/1h2TajN ]... recent experiences have me thinking more carefully about actually doing it..

What have you experiences been like with your provider? If you needed a new phone and and could pick any carrier, where would you get your phone and what provider would you go for?

Sound off G+!
It's 2014 and wireless carriers are changing all their plans. This used to be a lot simpler.

This is the best! - "that has too many steps!!". I think computer focus groups for hardware AND software should be exclusively made of the 13 and under crowd.
