Why I regret switching to Verizons 4G network VentureBeat – StumbleUpon

Why I regret switching to Verizons 4G network VentureBeat – StumbleUpon. Interesting experience in which 4G works well for some people and not for others. I remember that when I bought my first iPhone it had terrible problems with the EDGE network in Chicago. It was very slow. Perhaps having a couple of protocols is the way to go with mobile devices.

AT. In the link it will explain how AT&T upgraded from a 250MB account to 2GB one. Still given the amount of data his device can use and the fact that it is an emergency situation, that might not be enough either. I wonder how much his overage charges will be?

TED – Growing AIR – recycle indoor air 100% with just 3 plants. : CTN GREE… – StumbleUpon. Just a word of warning to pet owners who read this article. I checked at the ASPCA and two of the plants are poisonous to dogs and cats. I said this:

Mother-in-law’s tongue and Money Plant is also poisonous to dogs. You can read more or find out what plants are poisonous here. Areca Palm is not poisonous. You should update this article. Many people have pets and this could seriously hurt them.

Why Broadband Prices Havent Decreased – Creating the first broadband… – StumbleUpon. I quote:

“So if you were in such a market as a supplier, why would you initiate a price war?” Greenstein asks. With no new entries on the market, suppliers can compete by slowly increasing quality but keeping prices the same.

It seems clear that you only have lowered prices when you have competition. Otherwise they stay the same while adding features, or like AT&T raise them.

Data caps claim a victim: Netflix cuts streaming video quality. This is concerning. Netflix is reducing quality because of the data caps. As a big Netflix fan myself, this is a terrible idea. We have unlimited long distance phone calls. Why is data any different? Yes it is more intensive on the network and dense than voice, but unlimited is still unlimited. I will end my AT&T DSL service because of this behavior this month.
