Why I Was Going to Run for Congress

December 10, 2011

This is kind of a political rant, so fair warning and I apologize if I offend you in advance.

Voter Suppressionmedia green zones like in Baghdad (and here), indefinite detention of Americans by military, the revolving door between lobbyists and governmentSOPACongressional insider trading, shorting on the debt ceiling, re-districting to keep power - aren't we tired of this crap yet? I am. Very tired.

Mergers Cost Jobs

December 7, 2011

In the wake of AT&T getting caught misleading the federal agencies about the benefits of its merger with T-Mobile (FCC report here), we see that the merger of PAETEC and Windstream has already resulted in job losses.

Windstream cuts 58 jobs at Palm Harbor office is just the start of at least 280 jobs being cut from its combined workforce of 14,500. Synergies require job cuts. Richmond is losing 70.

Sprint Deals With Clearwire

December 5, 2011

The best details of the Sprint-Clearwire deal is at Marketwatch, but Tammy Wolf at TMC did a good job, too. Clearwire gets "up to $1.6 billion over the next four years in payments for WiMAX services, possible pre-payments for LTE services and potential equity investments" from Sprint. "Sprint will pay Clearwire a total of $926 million, approximately two-thirds of which will be paid in 2012, for unlimited 4G WiMAX retail services during 2012 and 2013, subject to certain conditions." So Clearwire is stuck with WiMAX until like 2015 while also building an LTE network. The speculation begins: is $1.6B enough for Clearwire?

Lots of News (I Can't Cover in Detail)

December 5, 2011

Dag Peak explains the difference between BroadTouch and BroadCloud by BSFT.

That Carrier IQ key logging software has Sprint and AT&T caught in lawsuits. This privacy issue reminds me of the cigarette suits -- keep suing and when you win one, you crack the whole thing open and huge sweeping change must follow.

Is All Broadband Going Metered?

December 5, 2011

Many rural fixed wireless ISP's meter their service for network management and costs reasons. The spectrum is finite, which means that wireless ISP subscribers can only get a set amount of bandwidth from that tower. The backhaul from the tower would be the other limiting factor.

In cable systems, the backhaul to the neighborhood is the bottleneck.

A Lesson From Netflix for You

December 4, 2011

Netflix lost 800K customers last quarter. In this article, Netflix explains that it made some errors in communication and branding. Netflix did a poor job of communicating the price increase to its customers. It did a poor job of explaining its value proposition as well.

Letter to EMS Financial Customers

December 4, 2011

From: EMS Financial Services [mailto:admin@emsfinancialservices.com]

Sent: December-03-11 6:17 PM

Dear EMS Customers and Friends,

You are undoubtedly aware of the difficult situation EMS finds itself in. However you may or may not be aware that a forensic examination of EMS accounts has revealed evidence that the Original Founder, Principal and Managing Member of EMS, Mr. James Nicholson, has misappropriated and mismanaged substantial amounts of EMS funds, having sole and complete access and control of all financial banking throughout the period.

Well That Was Unsatisfying

December 2, 2011

Tuesday night was kind of the last straw. While watching CinemaNow through my LG Blu-Ray player, the movie - 30 Minutes or Less - must have stopped to buffer 10 times and actually stopped 3 times - in 90 minutes!

I called my ISP, BHN of Tampa Bay, which is always interesting. First, they remotely re-boot the modem.

Cell Phones Offer No Privacy

November 30, 2011

Beyond the fact that radio frequencies can be listened to with Radio Shack parts - I'm not even talking NSA spycraft here - two reports out this week show that malware is present and accounted for on cell phones. Awesome, right? I mean, how long did that even take?

One article details how the IEEE has found that as many as 2000 free smartphone apps carry malware.
