San Jose city officials catch AT&T lying multiple times during application process

by: William Neilson JrMay 15, 2014
AT&T has been struggling as of late in dealing with cities that are starting to fight back about the location of AT&T's cell towers. Could it be due to AT&T wanting a city to shut down their downtown area for a tower removal, AT&T wanting to install a tower next to a middle school, AT&T wanting to install a tower above a children's baseball field and sandbox or how about when AT&T approaches a city with an "inordinate number of requests for exemptions"?

There has not been any tech service more over-hyped in the last year than AT&T’s GigaPower service. AT&T loves to issue press release after press release about how they are targeting 100 potential cities as locations for GigaPower. Those users could then get AT&T’s 1 gigabit service for $70-$100 per month. The Communications Workers of America called GigaPower “world changing.”

Except, there appears to be several slight issues with the GigaPower service that has gotten attention but not quite the amount that it deserves.

States pass ‘kill switch’ legislation against wireless industry wishes

by: William Neilson JrMay 12, 2014
On Thursday, California and Minnesota took steps toward becoming the first states in the country to pass laws requiring smartphones to feature stronger anti-theft technology. The California Senate approved a measure that would require every smartphone sold in California to include a so-called kill switch that allows victims of theft to disable a stolen device. The bill fines retailers between $500 and $2,500 for selling smartphones without a kill switch. Apple and Microsoft dropped their opposition to the bill once tablets were excluded from the requirement and extending the deadline to July 2015.
