In Topic: Apple Sept Event......!

No, applies only to iOS apps--iOS app store and iOS app management features were removed. So in the future, if you're restoring or setting up a new iPhone, you can't use iTunes to install/sync apps to the phone.

Comcast et al definitely have the resources (ie, sitting on billions in cash) to build out their networks into lesser populated areas, but don't (probably because expenditure wouldn't generate much revenue), so broadband in rural US is still a problem. Which in 2017 is ridiculous. :-(

Maybe FB or Google will get their drone networks up and running soon....

Yeah, US cell and internet prices are awful (compared to Europe), and companies like Comcast abuse their monopoly powers all the time. :-( However, comparing prices with Europe isn't entirely fair--the U.S. is a huge @#$% landmass (just driving across Texas takes three weeks) that requires huge infrastructure. So part of the high costs required build out and support that network is reflected in consumer prices, unfortunately.

Regardless, your experience sounds infuriating, especially because of the lack of competition.

About 20 hours into ME: Andromeda. Despite all the hate, outrage, and death threats surrounding this one, really enjoying. Good palate cleanser after playing too many titles in a high fantasy setting.

Love ya', Geralt but...LASERS pew pew pew.

And speaking of CDPR and lasers--pls pls pls finish Cyberpunk 2077 before I die or my kids go to college and I'm bankrupted...whichever comes first. Thx.
