The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 59: Hanging with the Machidas

Spent the day hanging out with RichardM and Bridget at the campsite near Quartzsite, AZ.The weather was warm and not windy at all which made it quite enjoyable to sit in the sun and chat about whatever was on our mind.  It would have been a perfect setting, but the large number of RVs surrounding us tended to ruin things a little bit.  Here's three views from the top of my URRV: We did take RichardM's truck into town to check out e-bikes for Bridget but nothing suitable was found.  One plac...

After Net Neutrality repeal, Comcast, Charter and Verizon cut investment in their networks

When Trump FCC Chairman Ajit Pai cheated his way to a repeal of Net Neutrality, he justified allowing ISPs to decide to slow down the services you want to use by saying that doing so would encourage investment in network buildout, saving America from its sad status as one of the most expensive, slowest places to use the internet in the rich world. But after a full year of neutracide, Comcast has made a liar out of Ajit Pai, reducing infrastructure spending by 3% in 2018, according to the ...

The Verizon division formerly known as Oath is laying off 7 percent of its workforce, which amounts to roughly 800 employees. Oath was created after Verizon acquired AOL, followed by Yahoo, bringing them together two years ago as a combined digital media entity with a new name.

But it wasn't every carrier: AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile subscribers were vulnerable to these attacks, but Verizon customers weren't: that's because every time someone queries your location data through ...

Electronics in RV’s

Watching all the Youtube RV episodes has got me thinking about the electronics in RV’s. What do you need to stay connected? The most common thing that I see in videos are people talking about cell phone boosting systems. They put an antenna on their roof and then they can either physically plug in their hot spot (mifi) or phone, and get a stronger cellular signal. Some of them claim it can make an area that they couldn’t get a signal in, get a strong signal. Thats interesting but I...

Ericsson's CTO says governments are ill-prepared for the advent of 5G, as mobile broadband adoption is set to explode

Governments aren't prepared for the adoption of 5G, Ericsson CTO Erik Ekudden told Business Insider at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Verizon’s Newly Free Tools Will Tell You Spammers Are Calling (But Won’t Stop Them)

fizkes/Shutterstock Verizon knows you’re sick of spam calls because everyone’s sick of spam calls. Except, possibly, Verizon itself. The carrier is making a big deal about moving its formerly-paid Call Filter service to free starting in March. Which isn’t as nice as it sounds. See, the $3-a-month toolset, which will come with all supported smartphone plans in March, only displays “the level of spam risk” in the system’s built-in caller ID readout. So if a spammer is calling, it will tell yo...

Broadcast mergers were huge in 2018, which means cable bills could skyrocket — but there's a silver lining for consumers

2018 was an active year for broadcast-station M&A, with $8.9 billion in deal volume, the second-biggest year in the past decade. Consolidation among broadcasters means that station ownership is concentrated among fewer broadcast groups. It also gives them more leverage in negotiating fees, which are then passed down to consumers in the form of higher cable and satellite bills. Consolidation among TV broadcasters and distributors ends up soaking consumers as cable and satellite bills ba...
