I went to the new plans a month ago and my bill dropped by $20 net. It went down $40 because of the plan change, but because of the new handset it took the $20/mo hit, putting $20 back in my pocket while giving me a brand new higher end phone that works correctly (my old one was broken)
They do explain the subsidies and the payoff really well in store (My phone broke monday, had to get a replacement)
Some phones have that $150 cost up front, then a set month to month fee that will be line itemed on your bill, others have no up front cost and just a month to month fee on the bill.
This is an incredibly good thing. After the terms of the phone payoff are complete, you own the phone, and you get a lower monthly bill, my bill dropped $30 swapping to this setup from their old, and I went from 5 GB/mo data to unlimited while keeping unlimited everything else.
This is what happens when the parent companies failed attempt to sell the company gives them a big pile of cash and a lot of spectrum. They start doing all the stuff they wanted to do but were never quite big enough to pull it off, so they can refocus on turning the redheaded step child (tmo usa) into a real contender.
The agenda based mods are quick, but the mods based on fact are more numerous. Never judge a quick modding, but instead wait to see it half a day later and see it stabilize.
The thing is, this person is in one of the best positions to fix the problem. He can draw attention to an issue that affects more than just rich people, but the poor people it affects don't have the money or ability to draw attention to it.
In a sense, this happening to him is a blessing to all of us, because it can end up being one more nail in the department of illegal detainment, theft and torture.
Seems your placement when it comes to education is a bold faced lie, I guess it's another one that you were planning on segueing into privatized schools or something that have been shown to be less effective than public schooling.
I don't understand how you can call government services a waste of money on essential things when they've been proven world wide to be cheaper and more effective than their privatized counterparts, but then American exceptionalism strikes again here. Things like medical care that would cover more people and cost less is a taboo here because too many rich people would have to wait more than 5 minutes to see their doctor, so it's better that we let those dirty poors die of easy to cure diseases.
Fucking sociopath libertarians.
You missed his joke though. Don't worry, it'll hit you.
The American right wing doesn't understand the long game. It's all profits across the next 2 years or cut all funding to anything and everything to ensure those profits over the next two. Never mind that in 6 years it will mean bankruptcy, those 2 years of profit are there now!
Meanwhile, the smart business man, and smart leader will be saying "we can play the short game, like everyone else and we'll get x benefit and profit, or we can reinvest in us now, and it'll pay off in 10 years 1000x"
I think it means it could form a baby solar system, because it contains to materials and mass required for it to start to form. Remember, our universe is still forming new stars even to this day, planets may also be forming, and if we can (over an extremely long period of time) watch that happen, that would be amazing.
Both Parent and GP are pretty spot on, too bad they posted as AC's.
Like the management shortcut of using non union labor, the biggest shortcut of them all!
Incidentally, the most catastrophic of them all too, causing unstandardized and sub par construction, all while harming the economy.
Pretty much. Ive got a 66% failure rate with the SSD's I've bought, only one that survived was an Intel.
The boss has a 100% failure rate with his SSD's, 4/4 failed.
And had been the geographic designation for North West Africa for far longer. Just because a hip hop group couldn't come up with their own acronym doesn't mean it's wrong to use it in a setting it had already been in use for generations.
We have a few dine in theaters here in Florida that do that too. They're rare (and more expensive per person) but it's a nice change from the standard theater style
Network solutions was at one point known to do that automatically if someone whoised a site. They'd register the alternate domains of it, then do the cancellation before they had to pay the ICANN fees for it.
I think they got smacked down for it, but if they were doing it, theres probably going to be others too.
