Submission + - Amp'd Mobile Shuts Down (maximumpc.com) 1

Bourdain writes: "Maximum PC reports that Amp'd mobile will shut down on July 24th. Apparently not enough people were attracted to a phone service with a misspelled name despite the underlying network being Verizon's. Maximum PC goes on to say, "The Q&A goes on to explain that users must pay their final bills or will be turned over to a collection agency — kindly enough Amp'd explains that 'no early termination fee will be assessed.'" When looking on the Q&A on Amp'd's site, one sees something relating to their claim of CDMA phone portability in addition to the [already] legally mandated number portability. Only time will tell whether this is accurate or not suggesting that Amp'd phones might be usable, to varying degrees, on Verizon (most likely) and Sprint (less likely) as well as other smaller niche CDMA carriers (despite the seemingly rather small selection of phones)."

Submission + - RIAA After Innocent Woman's 10yr old

cyberscan writes: "http://p2pnet.net/story/11878 The hate that has been generated against the Recording Industry of America by the Recording Industry of America seems to be well-earned. As part of its attack on Tanya Andersen, 43, a disabled mother living off medical benefits, it is trying to depose her 10 years old daughter, who was by the way, 7 at the time of the alleged infringement. I guess that since her mother has the audacity to deny the charges, the RIAA decides to go after her kid. The readers' comments says it all."
