A reader sent this link Cspire 1gbps internet . This company is offering competition to verizon, comcast, and time warners speeds.
And there lies the problem. Comcast is a monopoly. Not only cable but also in media. You know they probably set it up so you can’t see any of these free shows network streams unless you are on a internet provider that plays their game. Comcast probably has lobbyist that fight to keep that status quo in ever city. Ask philly? the gov. wanted to give free wifi to the city that wasnt going to happen. Guess where comcast headquarters is located.
And another thing the whole internet needs to step its game up or those kind of speeds are useless. How many times have you maxed out your current connection? We want all these high speeds but are not pushing current speeds. Sure you can run netflix, stream a game, surf the web, and etc. but that is for like an hour or 2. what about the rest of the day? Is there any a home user needs 1gbps.
Cspire is going to be good for that city. the rest of us will have to envy them. The problem is you would need the fiber optic wiring that means uprooting the current cable. No company wants to set the infrastructure and then not be able to get in the market. Here is another question why isn’t Verizon offering the same speed?
Just ranting I see the cable bill and wish there was real competition. All these companies keep all these companies agree to keep their prices similar so they don’t each others business. Answer me why am I paying a franchise fee? I don’t own a business with you guys. Just ranting.
The new iphone 5s information has been released from the latest apple conference I have to say the specs on the phone are impressive on paper.
To quote apple:
iPhone 5 set a precedent, with an amazing amount of technology in a remarkably thin, light design. iPhone 5s builds on that achievement with: Touch ID — a ﬁngerprint identity sensor. An A7 chip with 64-bit architecture. An even more impressive iSight camera. And ultrafast LTE wireless.
Now these sound like revolutionary technologies but lets look at the reality of the situation. The 64-bit architecture is a standout point, but does a phone need the power of pc in it. Does angry birds need to be able to run at full power. Now if apple had applications showing us how powerfu this would be for everyday use I would be impressed. Apple did showcase game with fast rendering times but honestly I have a playstation 4 for gaming purposes.
Samsung has recently unveiled the new galaxy note 3 for the world to see. This king to the phablet (phone tablet) has made some improvements to previous design by becoming slimmer and upadating the s pen. With the new s pen you have new feature called air command. With that you get new features. Here some quick highlights:
• Action Memo gives you the capability of actually writing notes.
• Scrapbook allows you to highlight content on social media sites.
• Screen Write captures a screen and allows you to write comments on that captured image.

Instead of having to find apps that search the phone samsung has made it simpler.
