Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ pass through FCC, confirming some minor details about the duo

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

Hot on the heels of last night's Galaxy S9 box leak, the S9/S9+ duo has passed through the US's FCC. Unfortunately, since these major companies know how impatient and clever us tech nerds can be, most of the information necessary to make it through the FCC has been obscured from the eyes of the common folk. There's still some information to be gleaned here, though.

First off, the US models of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are internally designated as SM-G960U and SM-G965U, respectively.

Your phone may now receive “Blue Alerts,” indicating danger to law enforcment in your area

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017


The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently announced the addition of a new alert program, Blue Alert, to the nation's emergency alerting systems. The new service is intended to notify the public of threats to law enforcement in real time. With the creation of a dedicated Blue Alert event code in the Emergency Alert System, state and local law enforcement will have the capability to push immediate warnings out to the public via broadcast, cable, and satellite providers, as well as to consumer smartphones through the Wireless Emergency Alert system.

The FCC has killed net neutrality protections in the US, and that’s bad

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

Net neutrality was codified under the FCC's Title II regulatory authority nearly three years ago, regulations that covered both wired and wireless internet providers. The providers were none too happy about this - Verizon's morse code sass being the most memorable response.

Today, the FCC voted to end its authority over ISPs under Title II, putting an end to those net neutrality protections. Ajit Pai, chairman of the FCC, is largely credited with making this happen.

FCC adopts new rules allowing carriers to “proactively block illegal robocalls”

Friday, November 24th, 2017

In what is likely a smokescreen intended to distract from the FCC planning a vote to destroy net neutrality, the FCC has issued additional rules which permit telecoms to block robocalls, specifically those which use Caller ID spoofing to impersonate phone numbers that do not exist, are not allocated by telecoms to subscribers, or are inbound-only phone numbers— in other words, allocated to systems which are unable to make outgoing calls.

FCC to vote on removing Net Neutrality regulations

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Net Neutrality is the idea that Internet service providers (Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, and so on) should treat all data the same. It has been a hot topic in the United States for years, especially after the FCC voted in 2015 to reclassify ISPs as Title II utilities, essentially making Net Neutrality law.

In January of this year, Ajit Varadaraj Pai was named the new chairman of the FCC by President Trump.

T-Mobile and Sprint are apparently still in merger talks

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

A merger between Sprint and T-Mobile has been rumored for years at this point, and a new report from CNBC claims there two are indeed still at it. An announcement may be a few weeks out, or it may not happen at all, but CNBC reports that the current framework would see T-Mobile and its parent company Deutsche Telekom emerge as the majority owner of the combined carrier.

T-Mobile was considered to be a target for takeover for years, and AT&T tried in 2011.

Pixel 2 XL passes through FCC, confirms LG as manufacturer and not much else

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

About a month ago, the smaller, HTC-made Pixel 2 made its way through the FCC, revealing the device's Snapdragon 835 processor and an "Active Edge" squeezable frame. Now, its big brother has stopped by for the same treatment. Unfortunately, not much information can be gleaned from the various documents on the FCC's site, but this is progress.

If any of you actually open the FCC link at the source below, you might wonder how we know this is the Pixel 2 XL; Google isn't mentioned anywhere and neither is the Pixel brand, as far as we can tell.

FCC filing for smaller Pixel 2 confirms HTC as manufacturer, Snapdragon 83x chipset, and “Active Edge” squeezable frame

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

One year ago today, the original Pixel and Pixel XL (which we then knew only as Nexus Marlin and Sailfish) passed through the FCC. Fast forward 365 days (really, it's been exactly a year) and the smaller Pixel 2 has just arrived at everyone's favorite commission. These documents confirm a number of rumors that we've previously reported on.

It's worth reiterating that this is the smaller Pixel 2, and only the smaller one.

Verizon caught throttling Netflix and YouTube, says it’s testing ‘video optimization’ tech

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Netflix launched a speed test tool a while back in part because ISPs have been caught in the past doing shady things with Netflix traffic. The fast.com speed testing tool this week revealed Verizon has started throttling Netflix, and users report YouTube is also affected. So, what gives? Verizon says it's just testing some "video optimization" technology, whatever that means.

Using the Netflix speed testing tool, users of Verizon's LTE network appear to be limited to 10Mbps.
