I wonder if the big cable companies have ever thought they might be doing a bad thing buying up all the other cable companies? Soon we will just have a couple to choose from, and if Comcast can buy out Time Warner the consumer choice will dwindle down to no choice. Who wants to pay for lousy expensive service that has poor support?

Comcast is expected to announce on Thursday an agreement to acquire Time Warner Cable for more than $45 billion in stock, a deal that would combine the biggest and second-biggest cable television operators in the country. For Comcast, which completed its acquisition of NBC Universal, the television and movie powerhouse, from General Electric less than a year ago, the latest deal would be its second big act to radically reshape the media landscape in the United States. And the merger is almost certain to bring to an end a protracted takeover battle that Charter Communications has been waging for Time Warner Cable.

For consumers, this means an even larger company with a reputation for poor customer service aggressively lobbying against things like net neutrality."

The US will not let Snowden have a free card. If they nab him it will be the last time the public will see him. If he is shot in a foreign country the US can deny and blame it on who ever they like. Might as well face it Snowden will be forever checking behind himself. He will never ever be a free man.

Window's and Linux Android and Apple is nothing more than a payola gateway for the Apps makers to bleed money out of their fan base at every turn. Want extra users? you get 3 extra for $2.99 and above. game tools you pay out the yang for. more board play? pay for it. It's getting ridiculous. Soon the masses will start paying attention to their bank accounts and see all those apple purchases and realize they are not worth it. I stopped dishing out the same month I was purchasing. Why? because many of those games are rigged. Watch your games when you first play without the pay you have moves you can do the game stays the same level through out your play. As soon as you put money down the game gets harder and very difficult to win. Even Rovio is getting in on the payola bandwagon. it won't last, and I don't see this move by the manufacturers being a win for anyone, including them. All anyone has done so far is let these Apps get out of hand. They soon will be making money by charging 99 cents just for you to download their stuff. Gone will be free. They will use such jargon as this allows you to receive updates or some crap they think up.
