Apology

I find those funny.

Politician signs the act to keep his income happy, but tries to save face in front of public by offering apology. What does it change? He/She still signed it.

A little nicer than Obama, who just flips us off.

ambassador apoligizes...

I shot someone in the head yesterday. Here is my apology. The voices in my head made me do it.

All should be forgiven now and I should be able to go about my merry way.

Get real people!!!

Verizon Live Stream of SuperBowl

I couldn't tell from the article but does the usage meter track this against the monthly allotment or by paying for the MobiTV option, is it a separate usage meter/unlimited?

The article mentioned bit rates between 200Kbps and 1.2Mbps.

If you watch the entire game at the higer rate, it'll probably use most of a 2GB cap.

Re: Verizon Live Stream of SuperBowl

Gotta be grandfathered in on unlimited... I hit 6Gb to 12Gb on many months.

29.99 a month.

Have been sick all week... don't have TV but now I can watch the game (don't know why I want to)

Sign then read

The Slovenian ambassador is claiming to have signed it first without reading it. Only after signing it did she realize just what she had signed.

Could you imagine if people in other professions did that?

Pharmacist: "Yes, those drugs I dispensed killed people. I probably should have read the labels so I didn't give people the wrong dose or pills." (Said while handing a customer Viagra instead of antibiotics.)

Surgeon: "How was I to know that the patient didn't need a quadruple amputation? I didn't get a chance to read his chart before starting the surgery. Next patient! Pass the hacksaw!"

Air Traffic Controller: "Sure, a few planes collided in my airspace. It's not like it's my fault. I had no way of knowing that was going to happen when I instructed them to land without reading what was on the tracking computer. Ok, flights 54321, 31415, and 424242. You're all clear to land on runway (rolls dice) 5."

Our Politicians do it all the time. Ok, that's true, you said OTHER profession, and she's a Diplomat, which in effect is a type of politician, so you got me there.

Verizon and WP

Verizon don't want another WP because you can remove their bloat within seconds. The only two phone on Big Red without bloat is the Galaxy Nexus(Google exclusive) and the iPhone(Apple is just too powerful to let them do it).
The Kin was a failure due to Verizon forcing a smartphone plan on a feature phone.
I think At&t and Microsoft needs to get together and tell Verizon WP lovers they will pay their ETF on Verizon or Sprint for them to switch.

Re: Verizon and WP

Sorry but I think it is a little simpler than that...

They don't have them because nobody wants them.

MS had the smartphone market OWNED and they sat back on their fat a$$es and watched apple eat their lunch. They finally get around to waking up and then in a dream-like state they think they need to be more like apple and piss of all the customers they had.

I remember when the first iphoney came out and I laughed at how it didn't even have cut & paste... when windows mobile had it from the beginning. Then years later (you know, after the nap) MS comes out with it's all new social networking mobile phone and it has no cut & paste... what a joke, how can you call it a smart phone, mobile computing device or data anything? MS let it walk away and they are going to have to work hard at gaining the ground apple snatched and now google rules!

Windows WHAT??? WHO?
