My ISP is semi-metered (throttled when you hit the cap) but 1 am to 8 am bandwidth doesn't count against the cap, precisely because their equipment is significantly less busy during those hours.
Most new developments since 1985, in fact.
More like 20 years - maybe more. But that only helps your point.
Buying stamps half a dozen at a time reduce first class rates to $0.85; businesses using postage meters will get $0.75. Not cheap, and still a big increase, but the $1 rate will be paid by a very small number of people too cheap to buy stamps six at a time.
As for home delivery, it'll be sad to lose it but the alternative, the community mailbox a few doors down from most houses, will have one advantage: parcels will be loaded into it for you to pick up. Currently if you're not home you have to drive to the nearest sub-post office to get your parcels. This will be way more convenient.
Turn it off unless you're watching it. You'll save electricity and your TV will last longer.
So they get an LCD. My TV is the plasma.
All GSM-network North American iPhones support 3G AWS so they will all work with T-Mobile. I'm not sure this is true for CDMA iPhones for Sprint and Verizon, but AT&T, Bell, Rogers, SaskTel, and Telus iPhones support 3G AWS so, if unlocked, will work fine. Of course, Apple also sells this phone unlocked and contract-free in both Canada and the US.
Apple was slow to support AWS 3G ("4G") but they do now, so the problem no longer exists unless you are using an older iPhone.
Actually you are both right. T-Mobile has refarmed spectrum and Apple has now added AWS support to the iPhone. Older iPhones may only work in 2G (EDGE) mode in some areas, but in many they will now work on HSPA+ on the 1900 MHz band. I suspect eventually all T-Mobile coverage areas will have 3G on 1900.
Heating with a plasma TV isn't exactly cheap but I'm saying the heat isn't as wasted as it would seem.
I am willing to pay for the electricity for a plasma TV because I like the superior picture quality. The fact that I live in a cool climate makes the electrical consumption and heat issues less of a negative for me.
That TV is obviously designed to use with a home theatre receiver. That will solve all your problems, if you have the physical space.
And have been since the early 1980s.
Agree, especially since not everyone has unlimited bandwidth - especially when mobile or in rural areas.
Open your windows?
Our winters are cold here, so the accidental heating we get from plasmas in Canada is largely inconsequential. For a few weeks in summer it increases air conditioning bills; for many months in winter it slightly decreases heating bills.
Using digital signals doesn't preclude the use of a CRT television. While HD CRTs are rare (although they do exist), most HD digital cableboxes can downconvert to 480i just fine. We did exactly this for years before we got an actual HDTV because on our Wega, downconverted HD looked markedly superior to native 480i content.
