Kentucky Telephone Companies Pushing For Option To End Basic Service

AoXoMoXoA Just convert them over (157 comments)

They used the same argumnent about the phase out of analog TV. It is going to leave the elderly and poor behind...i dont think that happend. They found a way to get a big government subsidy to give out free converter boxes.

What ATT will do is get the government to finance a massive vDSL deployment in these areas and plop an ATA out there on a little battery (they get to keep their phone number and their phone) oh...and we will also give you a video and internet feed. Technology for everyone...ATT bankrolls an upgrade and then reduces their operating cost and increases their revenues. The PSC is supposed to keep that in check but there are a bunch of former ATT/BellSouth exec's sitting on the commission so it is what it is...

AT&T Admits Network Can't Handle iPhone, iPad Traffic

AoXoMoXoA Sprint is no better (298 comments)

I am forced (stupid enough) to pay extra for 4G serves on my HTC EVO when there is no 4G server in my area (Louisville, KY) and the 3G server that was once king is now almost unusable...coupled that with the fact that Sprint is ditching WiMAX in favor of LTE so my phone wont work on the 4G if and when it ever gets here in the first place.

Intuit Disables Features in Quicken To Force Upgrades

AoXoMoXoA What is the big deal (617 comments)

I bought quicken a few years ago...i think it was around $75 or 80 dollars...i just upgraded to Quicken 2005 because I want the most current software...especically when it is handling my finances. I dont really see a problem. My guess is that you are wanting to install this on a pirated copy of XP or something. The software is not that expensive...what is the big deal. This is something that you should expect from a company like Intuit. Do you scream at Ford when your car breaks down? Did you know that that purposly use parts that have a 2 to 3 year life expectancy? Everyone does this...get over it...use it or GnuCash or write your own.
