AT&T and Apple Truth or DARE

January27

I broke this ugly story over Apple and AT&T last year:

exposing the AT&T and Apple DATA leakage scam or, ATT And Apple Battle Over Data Leakage

Life and business are a cautionary tale in terms of what you don’t know is what can kill you.

How many of you on the AT&T network find yourselves holding both an iPhone and the proverbial bag each month with your billing statement data usage fees?

Read on. The first article below discusses data usage and the cost. The author evidently wants to blame Apple and it’s iPhones. He is partially correct, to be fair. If you complain to AT&T they point the finger. Then if you call Apple they point out that the problem is known but Verizon somehow resolved it. Maybe the issue is with CDMA as opposed to GSM devices.

Or, perhaps AT&T simply likes gouging it’s customers relentlessly with excessive data usage fees that expose a critical lack of customer care.

I hope this post helps readers make an informed decision. Read between the lines. Investigate. See the truth. Beware. Don’t tolerate being cheated. Hold everyone accountable as you hold yourself. That’s being responsible.

I dare you.

http://lnkd.in/d73ZZCB : The author and article missed a HUGE opportunity. The real story with all of this is “data leakage”. The problem might be unique to iPhones. Interestingly, Verizon may have fixed the problem that Apple would not, and AT&T does not want to because of the obnoxious fees it generates for the company. You can read more about that here: http://lnkd.in/dWYx6kZ

extiPhone 5s Owners Are the Most Data-Hungry Smartphone Users, Study Says – news.yahoo.com

“It looks like iPhone 5s users are the most data-hungry smartphone owners out there. According to a new study, iPhone 5s users consume more data than those operating on the iPhones biggest competitor– the Galaxy S4– and…”

For perspective, read the related post from my personal blog below from last year:

Let’s be part of the Solution.

evidently God was the first Blackberry user

Why Alan Missroon Still Uses a BlackBerry

Bible writers Mark and Luke each refer to the historical account when God spoke to Moses through the burning bush.

in each instance, both Mark and Luke use the Greek word for blackberry when referring to the burning bush.

the inference is that God was the first Blackberry user.

and, since some have speculated that the Devil used an Apple; and everyone knows Android was created by man, Alan Missroon is sticking with the BlackBerry.

while out’s interesting and fun to me, it may not equal any of that with you. however, Thursday I wrote a post titled, Did God give us English or does the language help us define Him. here is a excerpt.

that said, one of my favorite example might end-up “being” the evolution of Artificial Intelligence” (“AI”). at what point will the mote in Gods eye transect with other creation? will AI (or androids, for example) develop independent or unique thought? can you imagine one day a robot writing poetry? would you listen to a robot serve-up a sermon from the pulpit?

so, when I met Alan Friday, and he told me the story I felt providence was once again playing it’s impish role in my life. And, God.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

I Miss My Dad

January18

we all lose our Dads.

they are rarely forgotten.

I’m sharing a link with you regarding John Schneider (Bo on The Dukes of Hazzard from the 70’s): http://jeremycowart.com/2014/01/john-schneider/

Mr. Schneider lost his own Dad recently.

john schneiderman getting real

my Dad and I used to watch Dukes of Hazzard together. the best reason I enjoyed those all-to-brief hours together was because I loved to hear my Dad laugh. it was genuine, and deep from the belly. it made me feel really good and safe.

I really miss my Dad. I never missed a chance to hug and kiss him, even in public all through my life, even when I was in my twenties (while that may not be a big deal for some, it is for some others), until he left us.

call your Dad. tell him you love and appreciate him. if you don’t feel that way I’m so very sorry. but, maybe it’s not too late to change that.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
