Why not sue DirectTV too while your at it. Hey, FTC, as you have nothing else better to do then go after Dish, how about going after Direct TV too? I get no less the 1 "come on back and we will give you 200.00 to break your contract..." mailing from them a week. So many, I have now started marking REFUSED-RETURN TO SENDER on them. I've asked them to stop. I've told them to stop calling me. But, it doesn't stop. so please, add another page to your court filing and go after Direct TV too. Thanks
Re: Why not sue DirectTV too while your at it. I live about 2 miles from one of their largest call centers. I could always go by and rough them up for you.
I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.

Death of DVD:How Hollywood Is Encouraging Online Piracy This author is an idiot. While his point is correct how he goes and proves it is not.
For all of the apparent convenience of renting a movie via the Web, there are a surprising number of drawbacks. For example, when you rent the digital version, you often have only 24 hours to finish watching it, which makes no sense. Do these companies really expect us to rent the same movie again tomorrow night if we can't finish it tonight? In the DVD days, a Blockbuster rental was three days. Why should online rentals be any different?
Actually when we had a Movie Gallery it was 24 hours. At RedBox it's 24 hours. And places like Amazon have 48 hour rentals. If you were to rent PPV from your pay TV provider you get only 24-48 hours. Why rent a movie if you don't intend on watching it right away?
When you rent online, you don't get any of the DVD extrasdeleted scenes, alternative endings, subtitleseven though you're paying as much as you would have paid to rent a DVD.
You don't get it on PPV either. And I believe most DVD at rental stores don't include these extra either. You have to BUY the DVD to get the goodies.
Yet perhaps most important, there's the availability problem. New movies aren't available online until months after they are finished in the theaters, thanks to the windowing systema long-established obligation that makes each movie available, say, first to hotels, then to pay-per-view systems, then to HBO and, only after that, to you for online rental.
That's bullshit. You can rent movie online the same day it comes out on DVD and PPV.

Apple vs. Samsung I had jury duty Wednesday this week. I ended up being excused, but I still had to sit around for most of a morning listening to two lawyers ask 18 or so people the same questions 18 slightly different ways during voir dire to try to confuse them to show their bias.
While I'd find being on the jury for Apple vs. Samsung to be an exciting proposition, I think I would rather shoot myself repeatedly then have to sit in a deliberations room and decide all that they have to. I think I would be inclined to mark down both sides extensively violated the other patents and the damages awards are $1 total for each side. Or just mark "no" for everything.
Re: Tablets with cellular radios
said by IowaCowboy:A) More expensive than a non cellular one
I will not buy a tablet unless it has a cellular radio in it. I like being able to take it on the go with me and I don't use public Wi-Fi because it is not secure.
It only costs me $10 per month to add it to my VZW Share Everything plan.
B) good luck with overages when you smash through your cap on Verizon.
