Submission + - AT&T Blocking Facebook in midwest? (kcci.com)

coolate writes: "If you are experiencing problems connecting to Facebook on Thursday, you're not alone.
People across the Midwest are reporting connection errors with Facebook and Facebook Messenger.
The problem is reportedly due to an outage with AT&T who operates a large part of the Internet backbone.
The outage is impacting people in Iowa, Twin Cities, Chicago and beyond."

It is still down for me and others I know with AT&T in the midwest. After contacting AT&T they said it was a known problem.

Comment Re:OS not the problem (Score 1) 191

Pre2 had only limited release, but it is way faster, and works great, compared to the pre and pre+ that just worked ok. I agree, it is still a better experience than any other mobile OS. I have used the iPhone, and tried very hard to like android, but eventually went back to my pre2, love it! Veer and pre3 are also great hardware, that never got a chance... Was not an issue with the OS, it was an issue with the company selling it...

I have been using webOS for years now, it works just fine, and the newer hardware like the pre3 kept up just fine with the iPhone, also they forget to talk about the fact that webOS has a PDK that allows C and C++ apps, so apps like angry birds run at full native speed. As a developer, we were able to make a canvas based game, that played just fine, something we could not do on android or iOS, canvas and javascript were just to slow on them. True a lot of talent has left it now, but when it goes open source, it will allow many that find no room to work on android a home.

Plant wild flowers, or no mow grass(yes it exists, and works great)! -You will save $ on gas -pollute a lot less! (mowers are some of the least efficient motors around) -Make more fresh air -looks a lot better -get some nice birds, butterflies and such. -Gain 3 hours a week back. You can do a ton with that. And If you must mow, make a solar powered lawnmower with a server battery and starter mower like I did!
