I would like to see how much money was given to, donated to or trips paid for by Comcast, AT&T and Verizon to Blackburn and these 31 Republicans over the past 10 years. I'm sure we'll get our answer as to why they are pushing this afterwards.

I always have 1-2 spare batteries with me. If i'm away from being able to charge it then I can swap the battery with a fully charged one. I would rather do this than carry an external charger as well.
Browser: Google Chrome
Extension: Tabs to the front!
What it does: Brings newly created tabs to the foreground.
When opening a link in a new tab on my phone and having to take the extra time to then change to it enrages me. Why would anyone long press a link and choose "Open in new tab" and not want to view that tab right away? Why does Chrome toss it in the back?
And still spotty coverage. T-Mobile coverage is pretty bad where I am. My verizon works everywhere I go in my state.
These days that's totally changed, so it doesn't cost them much to make calls and abandon them
More and more robo calls are made from hacked Asterisk servers. This cost them zero yet the owner of the hacked Asterisk server often gets a bill in the tens of thousands.
Also when I get someone calling me and trying to offer me services of some sort, I instantly start talking over them and try to sell them various services my job offers. Two can play at that game.
And while you can't technically delete the apps without root, you can disable them, which makes them essentially deleted (they won't show up in the app drawer or notifications or intents). The only difference is that the app is still taking up a tiny bit of space, but this is hardly worth throwing a fit over.
I've noticed on my Samsung tablet which I haven't bother to root yet, if you disable some of the Samsung apps or 3rd party apps like Flipboard that came pre-installed, they will magically become re-enabled and update.
Also the pre-installed games that you can't uninstall can take up several hundred megs of space.
But that was how many years ago? 500+? The Catholic church and it's beliefs have greatly changed since. The way I see it, Islam (or some members/sections of it) today is where the Christian/Catholic religion was many centuries ago was. Trying to force their beliefs on others and wanting to kill those that don't accept. The true Muslim people that are against this violence need to stand up. This is a fight that can only be won from within it's own religion with its own people if you ask me.
(I too am not religious. I don't hate them I just choose not to be brain washed)
Being able to directly connect to other players is fine but you need to already know a buddy and their IP address first. You would no longer be able to connect to a random game with random people. I loved playing Doom 2 & Warcraft 2 with others but could only do it with my friend when he was home and online or we packed up our computer and took it to the other persons house.
That COULD be an option but very few people would use it today.
Put a DVD copy of the movies in a satellite, launch it and beam the movies down to NK in every electronic format possible from AM radio to HD. Put the movies on loop and hit play.

I was under the impression this was kept to Sony Pictures and didn't involve the electronics side.
Last I checked all my utilities other than water are private companies. My taxes won't pay my electric, gas or phone bill. If I don't pay any of them then they get shut off.
Also I pay my water bill to my local city and it's not even part of my taxes.
Companies can create jobs if they want. 40 years ago an auto manufacturing factory might have employed 3,000 workers. That same factory today would most likely only employee 1,000 because robots replace most of the workers on the lines. In the meantime the company makes more income because they don't have to pay 2,000 employees various wages and benefits.
Companies today are requiring their current employees to do the work of 2-4 people so they don't have to hire more.
Dude might have a pair of Flips headphones, or better yet, Beats headphones! He's going to bring schoolhouse rock back.
Here in the US (at least near a major city), LTE is last gen tech.
This. Now, with "XLTE" I can blow past my monthly data cap in 13 minutes of full speed downloading! The future has arrived.
I don't really even understand the point in XLTE anyways. I can pull 50mbit on my LTE. Why would anyone need faster over a cell phone?
My speeds range from 15 to 65mbits. I would guess average around 20.
