And here we thought Verizon’s network technology was better-prepared than AT&T to handle a big crowd of iPhone customers. While our initial tests showed that Verizon was better at making and holding phone calls, its data speeds are slower than AT&T’s. The company must be worried about the effects of an influx of iPhone customers – otherwise, why would it throttle bandwidth like this?
He set up a website -– LetMeStayForADay.com –- to solicit offers of bed and board.
In 2014, comedian and Last Week Tonight host John Oliver did the seemingly unthinkable: He helped turn net neutrality into a rousing mainstream issue. This past Sunday, he called on viewers to ask the FCC to keep the net neutrality rules it passed in early 2015 instead of throwing them out. To make weighing in easier, Oliver pointed to a cheeky web address that would redirect people to a form they needed to fill out in order to leave a comment on the FCC site.

In case you weren’t aware, duct tape comes in just about every major color these days: red, blue, yellow, purple, black, green, orange, and yes, classic gray/silver. But spend some time online or in a craft store and you’ll also discover duct tape brands that offer patterns such as camouflage, leopard skin, zebra stripe, and many more. I have about eight colors in my workshop already, but after seeing so many other samples in full-color throughout the book, my wife is probably going to have to cut me off once I start placing some orders.
Seems he’s done demoing iOS 4 – since he already showed us those features in March… Multitasking, folders, new Mail, enhanced camera system, deeper enterprise support and “tons of new features.”
“In a sense, we’ve taken a cue from almost every communication tool that’s ever existed,” Google senior software engineer Jens Rasmussen, one of the leads on the Wave team, tells Webmonkey. And since Wave has been in development for more than two-and-a-half years, he says it has evolved alongside the social, real-time web we’re living in today, taking new cues along the way.

One of the biggest problems, Cook says, is that Amazon hasn’t been forthcoming about its energy use. For Amazon, more transparency will be the next step in proving that its future is green.
On the surface, the ease with which these profiles can be located seems to undermine MySpace’s claims to be cracking down on sex offenders on its servers. But even if the company wanted to use state sex offender registries as a MySpace blacklist, doing so may not be possible or even advisable.

Taapi itself will not be the home of the games that will control the lights in your house. This will all be done through open development with the Taapi API. Taapi is relying on independent game and app developers to utilize their full rest API to integrate their game with Taapi features and functions. Taapi is hoping they can become an important part of a game’s point system or the management console of an app.
People today are dying today as the result of obesity-related diseases and they shouldn’t be told to wait for the promise of a wonder drug that will effortless melt fat away. It’s hard to imagine a worse message.
I found this particularly aggravating since I live and work in France. Microsoft is able to detect my France-based IP address, and I know this because it imposes French-language web pages on me when I try to access its help sites.

The first was announced for Indiana in May and the other two locations haven’t yet been announced.

Most of the symbols depict Sen. Barack Obama as cutting edge, Sen. Joe Biden as wise, Sen. John McCain as old, and Gov. Sarah Palin as ditzy, and are created by people compelled to express their support.
“I don’t like the idea of a company getting me thrown into jail for writing a computer program,” said Amit Vainsencher, a 15-year-old who showed up at the San Jose rally.
