Verizon once again slammed the door shut on the idea of unlimited data.

"At the end of the day, people don't need unlimited plans," Verizon Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo said at an investor conference Thursday.

If you listen to Shammo regularly, you'll know this isn't a new sentiment. But Verizon's rivals have put a renewed emphasis on unlimited data that could have prompted him to change his tune.

Nope.

T-Mobile and Sprint have introduced cheaper unlimited data plans -- in exchange for slowing the connection for lower-resolution video -- and AT&T has been trumpeting its own unlimited data bundle with DirecTV video service. The push to unlimited data marks a reversal of the last few years of rhetoric about the costs of delivering service.
"At the end of the day, people don't need unlimited plans," Verizon CFO Fran Shammo says.

Fran Shammo has proven that he doesn't give a flip about the customer. He is all about massive profits.

An extensive DNA study confirms what Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have always believed: they're the oldest living civilisation on the planet.

"We know that we were here forever, but Western science is slowly catching up," says a Facebook post from Indigenous Australian rights organisation Sovereign Union, led by activist and Euahlayi leader Ghillar Michael Anderson.

In fact, their relationship to the land stretches back over 50,000 years, according to new scientific research published in the journal Nature. Led by Professor Eske Willerslev of the University of Cambridge, in collaboration with a host of Indigenous elders, the research team sequenced the genome of 83 Aboriginal Australians (from groups covering 90 percent of Australia's land mass) and 25 Highland Papuans.

Significantly, the results also show that Indigenous ancestors migrated from Africa 72,000 years ago as part of a "single migration" of the world's first people.

Assets in college savings plans named for an obscure section of the Internal Revenue Service code hit a new record this summer, totaling $266.2 billion. That’s up 5.1 percent from a year ago, when assets in the accounts stood at $253.2 billion.

Individual balances in so-called 529 plans also hit a record average, at $20,975, up 3.1 percent for the year. These latest national figures, as of June 30, cover a total of 12.7 million tax-advantaged education savings accounts, according to the College Savings Plans Network. 

Unfortunately, that pot of money is only enough to cover an average one year’s worth of costs for an in-state student at a four-year public institution1, according to the College Board’s 2015 Trends in College Pricing. But every penny counts for students these days—even for the well-off, who the government says happen to benefit most from 529 plans.


Billions of dollars are being socked away in an obscure federal college savings plan.

I suspect at this very moment Ted Cruz is hand washing skid marks from The Donald's boxers. Ted, you said that people should vote their conscience at the RNC. I guess we know a lot more about yours. Nice job you flunky...

It's a murky topic for sure. Laws prevent manufacturers selling cars directly to customers, as that would cut into the traditional franchised-dealership model. Dealership groups across the country see Tesla as a threat, not only to the status quo, but also to their future financial well-being.

On the other hand, there's the argument that this is little more than protectionism for an industry that has been largely supplanted by the internet, and that its strong legal protections are the only thing preventing the traditional dealer model from going the way of the milkman.
This comes on the heels of Michigan's rejection of Tesla's dealer application.

Turkish research and development startup Letvision has built what appears to be a 2013-ish BMW 3 Series coupe that transforms into a 15-foot robot. As an adult whose entire desk is littered with Transformers action figures, I'm sort of freaking out right now.

Letvision started with an actual car for the conversion, so the Letron is a 1:1 scale representation of what an actual robot in disguise would look like. However, the conversion to transforming robot pretty much occupies the much of the vehicle's interior with hardware, so it can only be driven remotely with a Wi-Fi controller.
Call Mark Wahlberg, because I think we just found a Transformah! A Turkish company took a 2013 BMW 3 Series and turned it into a childhood dream.

The U.S. oil and gas industry is having a visible effect on the Earth's surface, a new review of satellite images has found.

In recent years, energy companies have pumped an unprecedented volume of wastewater — a byproduct of fracking and conventional drilling — deep into underground wells. The water often can't be reused or recycled for economic or technical reasons, so many companies have found it easier to inject the water back into the ground.

That process has sparked a wave of earthquakes across the central United States, transforming the Earth both above and below the surface, according to a study published Thursday in the journal Science.
Satellite observations show how ground "deformation" connects wastewater to earthquakes.

Alas, they come crawling back after that ridiculous cable channel experiment flamed out

Washington, DC - Al Jazeera Media Network announces that it has resumed making Al Jazeera English, its multi-award winning news and current affairs channel, available free to US audiences through Aljazeera.com and across a range of digital platforms. 

Dr Mostefa Souag, Al Jazeera's acting director general, said the network's mission is "to provide an unfiltered perspective" on the most important global events, from the viewpoint of the people they impact.

"Our extraordinarily committed and passionate journalists do this with a tenacity in their search for truth that is remarkable by any standard. Our coverage is unique, critical and sought out around the world," he said.

Not a fan of your cable provider? AT&T is prepping an alternative for you.

The Dallas-based telecommunications giant plans to launch an online streaming video service, DirecTV Now, in the fourth quarter, CEO Randall Stephenson said Wednesday at an investor conference. He teased that the service will include more than 100 premium channels and feature "very, very aggressive price points."

AT&T is just the latest company to offer a service targeted at cord cutters, or consumers who have shunned a traditional subscription TV service. AT&T joins the likes of Sling TV and Sony's PlayStation Vue. DirecTV Now will sit alongside AT&T's DirecTV, the satellite TV provider, and will let consumers access video through any internet-connected device, including phones, tablets and TV boxes like Roku.
The company will take on the likes of Sling TV, Hulu and HBO Now with "very, very aggressive price points."

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — The state Attorney General’s office has now received about 1,145 complaints about price gouging, and Attorney General Roy Cooper’s office has issued subpoenas to three more gas stations, including one in Smithfield, officials said Tuesday.

Consumers told the Attorney General’s Office that all three stations charged $3.99 or more per gallon of gas, the state Department of Justice said. Officials did not immediately identify which gas station in Smithfield has been issued the subpoena.
