AT&T Starts Throttling Heavy Wireless Data Users

xo0m Re:Perfect Plan (158 comments)

To answer your question - If I were in ATT's shoes, initially I'd declare the 'top 5%' rule and throttle those users until enough of them defect off my network. Once satisfied with how my customer base is behaving, I will continue to declare the 'top 5%' rule to deter my little darlings from acting naughty.

iPods Come Complete With Windows Virus

xo0m PCs on ipod assembly line... (672 comments)

"...Joswiak said it was traced to a particular Windows machine in the manufacturing lines of a contract manufacturer that builds the iPods for Apple..." Why on Earth would there be a Windows machine anywhere near the ipod assembly line? (and no - it shouldnt have anything to do with the fact that ipods are PC compatible now)
