TimeWarner Puts Off Bandwidth Cost Restructuring

If you haven't heard already, TimeWarner was in talks of a new price-plan for their broadband internet. Lucky thanks to the outrage of many (and rightly so), TimeWarner has decided to put their bandwidth caps on hold for now according to this article.

Bandwidth caps that TimeWarner were looking at would only hurt the progression of technology on the internet. People who used their internet a lot were possibly facing huge price increases and people who barely used their internet were looking at saving a few bucks. Overall, more people probably would be punished than helped and it would greatly discourage people from doing things like streaming Netflix to their TV or computer.

If anything, cable companies need to increase bandwidth speeds and increase their bandwidth caps!



Happy Tax Day!

Toot Tweets

As most of your know from previous posts, I've been struggling to get my head around Twitter. Well struggle no more I say!! A guy with to much time on his hands built his own toot tweeter. That's right, it's a magic chair that tweets every time he toots. And I thought my Toto Toilet was cool. Check it out.


UPS/FedEx/DHL Virus E-mail

We have been seeing a UPS/FedEx/DHL e-mail going around the last few months that is a virus. DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT. Please just delete the e-mail. It says something similar to the below example:

"Your Tracking # 0280957051" It contained an attached file titled "UPS (54KB)"

"Sorry, we were not able to deliver postal package you sent on April the 13th in time because the recipient s address is not correct.
Please print out the invoice copy attached and collect the package at our office.
If you do not receive package in ten days you will have to pay 6$ per day.

Your UPS"

This is a bogus e-mail! So, even if you are expecting a package or sent one to someone remember that UPS/FedEx/DHL will never send you files in a zip document (.zip). And if you are tempted to open the file because you think it is legit, please call UPS/FedEx/DHL BEFORE you open it! It will save you a ton of time and a big headache, I promise!
