Google Secret Privacy Document Leaked

QuijiboIsAWord Re:I gotta say... (281 comments)

They are unfortunate in that they are such a huge business; while customer and user satisfaction is still at the top of their list, nothing will ever be a higher priority than profit (as it should be with a business).

Not. True.

Analyst Estimates AT&T Needs To Spend $5B To Catch Up

QuijiboIsAWord Re:Sprint? (187 comments)

I also recently switched to sprint and I've been really satisfied with their service. I got an unlimited data plan for a lower price than anyone else, and they had 3G in my town while AT&T still doesn't. I'd prefer to be on a GSM network, but theres absolutely no tangible difference to my day to day use. Their customer support has been pretty decent, but that might be because I'm working through a corporate account rather than a normal one.

Greg Bear To Write Halo Trilogy

QuijiboIsAWord Re:Great! (73 comments)

Pretty sure that for the girl to be a Deus Ex Machina, it would have had to have been a secret that she was lucky, rather than directly stated early on from practically the first moment she's met. The fact that she was lucky (or unlucky, or really lucky, or her descendants are really lucky, or however Niven's retroactively redefined it this year) was always to me the whole point of the book.

Google Bans Tethering App From Android Market

QuijiboIsAWord Re:Everything-over-IP wireless carrier (361 comments)

Close, except that zer01 isn't an MVNO. The story about them using AT&T's 3G network was incorrect, the interviewer made some assumptions about what they're doing.

According to them, they've got interconnect agreements that eliminate the need to lease bandwidth the way an MVNO typically does.

Big Finish audios for sale online, DRM free

QuijiboIsAWord QuijiboIsAWord writes  |  more than 6 years ago

QuijiboIsAWord (715586) writes "Big Finish Productions, who have been making professional SciFi for quite a while, began making their catalog available online this month. They've made audio plays based on popular television series including Doctor Who. Only available right now are their latest 80 or so WHO dramas, but Big Finish have stated their intentions to put their entire library online. The most interesting part is that they've elected not to go through Itunes or some existing service, but rather to create their own, and to include no DRM. Instead, downloaders recieve 160kb/s or higher mp3's, with the purchases attached to an account so they can be redownloaded at any time."

QuijiboIsAWord (715586) writes "Zap2It Labs, which provides free TV listing data for personal use, has long been the main source of program guide information for users in the US and beyond. They've announced via their webpage that, due to abuse of the service, data will no longer be available after September 1st. There is no other direct source, and no option to pay for the service even if the users wanted to. Without a data feed of this type, users will be reduced to scraping websites at best. Is this going to be a killing blow for MythTV?"
