Obama FCC Net Neutrality Plan

Obama is unhappy with the Internet ‘fast lane’ plan proposed by the ex-cable lobbyist he tapped to run the FCC

Obama is unhappy with the Internet ‘fast lane’ plan proposed by the ex-cable lobbyist he tapped to run the FCC

Amazing but true: Appointing a former cable lobbyist to run the Federal Communications Commission might not be the best way to protect net neutrality. Nonetheless, President Barack Obama, who campaigned on defending net neutrality during his first presidential run in 2008, finds himself in just such a situation after seeing his own FCC chairman offer up a plan that would allow for the creation of Internet “fast lanes” where ISPs could charge companies more money to ensure the faster delivery of their content.

Here’s why your WiFi speeds are never as fast as advertised

Have you ever wondered why this is the case? Culling from a variety of articles on the subject, BuzzFeed has put together a list of reasons why your home Internet is always much slower you expect it to be. More →

Comcast apologizes to the man who got fired after complaining about its service

Earlier this week, we tipped our hat in awe at Comcast’s ability to deliver customer service that was so bad that it literally ended up ruining a man’s career. Now, Comcast has come out and publicly apologized to the man for the trouble he’s gone through, although the company insists that no one at Comcast told his employer he should be fired. More →

Here’s the latest way Facebook is making your Internet experience more annoying

With free services invariably comes advertising — after all, the commercials you have to put up with on network television are funded by advertisers. However, Facebook apparently thinks you don’t see enough ads throughout your day, which explains why it’s expanding its advertising with the formal launch of Audience Network.

Google Plus Progress Report

Whether you like it or not, Google+ is here to stay

Whether you like it or not, Google+ is here to stay

It seemed inevitable that Google’s social experiment would eventually be scrubbed off the face of the Internet. The disdain for Google+ and Google’s forced implementation of the social media platform into each and every one of its products seems to be pushing users away, but in an interview with Re/code, new head of social media David Besbris claims that his team is “the largest [it's] ever been.” More →

Fighting Comcast’s awful customer service literally ruins a man’s life

How much worse can Comcast’s customer service possibly get? Unless Comcast execs start engaging in ritual customer sacrifices to appease the demon lord Ba’al’s thirst for human blood, we can’t imagine it getting much worse than this. Consumerist brings us the remarkable tale of a man whose efforts to get Comcast to wipe erroneous charges from his bills actually got him fired from his job. More →

Verizon’s attempt to compete with Netflix ends in hilarious failure

Remember Redbox Instant, Verizon’s video streaming service that was created to compete with Netflix? Personally, we’d completely forgotten about it until this morning when we stumbled across a piece from Ars Technica’s Jon Brodkin that reported Verizon is shutting down Redbox Instant after a year and a half of hilarious failure.

Comcast Vs. Municipal Fiber

The worst video ever explains why you should fear municipal fiber and love Comcast

The worst video ever explains why you should fear municipal fiber and love Comcast

Once a day or so, I get propaganda messages from a pro-cable company advocacy group called NetCompetition that tries to convince me that I should absolutely love my incumbent ISP and fear anything that could possibly give it real competition, including both government-funded municipal broadband networks and privately funded broadband networks such as Google Fiber.

iPhone 6 Plus Bendgate

‘Bendgate’ is driving some people to believe insane ‘9/11 Truth’-style conspiracies

‘Bendgate’ is driving some people to believe insane ‘9/11 Truth’-style conspiracies

Listen up, people: The videos of bent iPhone 6 Plusses will do very little damage to Apple’s long-term reputation. So long as Apple is correct when it says that your iPhone 6 Plus isn’t likely to bend under normal usage, this issue will go away very quickly, just as “Antennagate” went away quickly when Apple gave out free bumpers and just as “Mapsgate” went away very quickly once Tim Cook apologized for it and recommended that people download different mapping apps. That said, there are some iPhone fans out there who are so irate over the whole issue that they’ve seemingly lost their minds about it. More →
