It doesnt. Those are obviously candidates that would target specific demographics. VP doesnt have to go after women votes (Clinton has that covered), looks like they decided on a VP that would most appeal to white population.

Isnt it obvious with Bernie being in a category of his own?

If you were burnt by the phone, Samsung will obviously pay more (if you negotiate through a lawyer). You can be pretty sure it will pay for more than a bandaid. This is for unburnt users, that want to upgrade their phone. Verizon waves your contract, and allows you renew your contract with a $25 credit (along with a $100 samsung credit, if you move to a samsung device). I think it is quite reasonable, even if wouldnt cover your burn ward fees, unrelated to samsung phones.

The thing is you werent telling the right thing. IoT is not a bad idea at all (much less a horrible idea). You come off as a luddite when you say that. What you should have said is security is important IoT or no IoT. It seems obvious but apparently not to some people. May be if you had been pro-security rather than anti-IoT, you would have taken more seriously. Just my 2 cents.

Metropolitan/urban areas house about 80% of america's population. So even if only metros adopt, I am sure he will be extremely happy. Whats wrong with solving problems that only affect 80% of Americans? Why do you want him to stop?

The other 20% may like car ownership, he doesnt care of course. I know I wouldnt.

Comment Re:Range not speed (Score 1) 73

I don't care. Probably like most people, I would much rather have more coverage/range than crazy speed. Their precious 700Mhz didn't come to my 1.5+ million person area, and my area is certainly not alone. That means mediocre building penetration with existing service and spotty coverage in other areas.

You probably live in a NIMBY area then. It is very expensive for them to provide coverage if no one wants to host at the ideal locations. Dont blame T-Mobile for being cost conscious, blame your neighbors.

Startup is one of buzzwords GE thinks is fancy and likes using (lean and thinning down are similar in business speak). What GE is trying to become is a IoT Incubator and a VC (finance and investment is their bread and butter for past decade, it makes sense).

Working for GE, you should know how to read between the bullshit by now, mate.
