He never said they invented it, just that they "have done this for a decade or more". And they have. One example which did this is the AirPort Express, released in 2004: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

No, this doesn't prove that Apple invented it (and I'm not claiming they did). But it does prove that it is not really newsworthy for someone to be doing this at least 12 years later than its original release.

From Verizon's Customer Agreement:

Can Verizon Wireless change this Agreement or my Service?

We may change prices or any other term of your Service or this agreement at any time, but we'll provide notice first, including written notice if you have Postpay Service. If you use your Service after the change takes effect, that means you're accepting the change. If you're a Postpay customer and a change to your Plan or this agreement has a material adverse effect on you, you can cancel the line of Service that has been affected within 60 days of receiving the notice with no early termination fee if we fail to negate the change after you notify us of your objection to it. Notwithstanding this provision, if we make any changes to the dispute resolution provision of this Agreement, such changes will not affect the resolution of any disputes that arose before such change.

I think there are other solutions than this. For instance - not offering an unlimited plan. It seems like there is no point of an unlimited plan. Every company that offers one tries to place artificial limits on data beyond normal technical limits.

To quote TFA:

Verizon stopped offering unlimited data to new smartphone customers a few years ago...

Comment Re:Non-dominant hand (Score 1) 105

Also, in some situations, you are forced to use your non-dominant hand. I am right handed, and I wear my watch on my left. At a drive-up ATM, I am all but forced to use my left hand (driver side on the left in my country) to operate the ATM. It would be much more difficult for me to twist in the driver's seat to get my right arm far enough out the window than to just use my non-dominant hand.

The software on the Oculus Rift is their Intellectual Property (IP), and this shares a common acronym with IP Addresses. Also, in response to community backlash, Oculus has decided to change its DRM policy (again) to allow HTC Vive games to play on the Oculus Rift virtual-reality system.

TL;DR: Woooosh
