Sprint Vs. T-Mobile Network

The biggest reason Sprint’s aggressive new prices might not matter

The biggest reason Sprint’s aggressive new prices might not matter

By on August 19, 2014 at 8:40 AM.

So Sprint has finally gotten with the program by unveiling competitive new plans that double the amount of data available on family plans without raising prices a dime. If nothing else, this is certainly superior to Sprint’s previous strategy of showing us a talking hamster on TV and expecting us to give them money. However, the latest data from RootMetrics shows that there’s a still a huge obstacle to Sprint becoming relevant that has nothing to do with its pricing: Namely, the dilapidated state of its wireless network.

Sprint Family Share Pack

Sprint finally gets serious, unveils more competitive family plans

Sprint finally gets serious, unveils more competitive family plans

By on August 19, 2014 at 7:30 AM.

True to his word, new Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure on Monday unveiled some aggressive new pricing for Sprint family plans and the best part is that the word “Framily” was nowhere to be found in the official announcement. The new Sprint Family Share Pack plans — note the lack of the letter “r” in “family” — will effectively double the amount of data subscribers get for their money. So for example, the $160 per month plan that would give you 10GB of data across four lines now gives you 20GB of data. Verizon and AT&T, for comparison’s sake, still offer 10GB of data for $160 per month. More →

A new video posted by SmarterEveryDay explains how jellyfishes’ tentacles are equipped with organelles called nematocysts that extend whenever they come into contact with something else and inject venom directly into it.

Microsoft’s plan to rebuild Internet Explorer’s image: Stop calling it Internet Explorer

By on August 18, 2014 at 9:00 PM.

What would it take for you to give Internet Explorer another chance? What if it wasn’t Internet Explorer any more? During an Ask Me Anything on Reddit last week, engineers working on Internet Explorer discussed everything from reducing fragmentation by phasing out old versions of IE to the flavor of the cake Mozilla sent two years ago, but the most interesting reveal from the thread came when one Reddit user asked whether or not the team had ever considered rebranding the browser.

By on August 18, 2014 at 4:42 PM.

“I got five words for ya… I. Love. This. Basketball team, YEEEEAAAAAAH!!!” If that’s the kind of opening pep talk you expected out of former Microsoft CEO and new Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, then you probably won’t be too disappointed with the real thing. In his opening remarks to fans of the NBA team, Ballmer talked about how much he loves Los Angeles and explained why he loved fans for loving the Clippers due to their underdog status compared with the crosstown Lakers.
