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.

Android Pay adds 24 new banks and credit unions in the US

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Android Pay continues its expansion into small banks and credit unions across the United States and today brings us 24 additions. At this point, given the long list of banks supported, I'm starting to doubt that there's a bank for every 10 persons in the US. But then again, The World Bank says there are a little over 32 bank branches per 100K adults in the US. That's branches, so banks should be a lower figure.

Amazon Prime Video returns to the US Play Store

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

For a while now, the Android app for Amazon's Prime Video streaming service was unavailable to download in the United States. At least from the Play Store, that is - the only official means of downloading it was through the Amazon Underground app. But now it seems the app has returned to the Play Store.

Amazon hasn't made any announcement about the app's return, and there isn't anything different between this and the Video app from Amazon Underground.

Google Assistant thinks Arizona is on the East Coast, Google still working on a fix

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

Google Assistant is pretty great, as far as virtual assistants go. You can ask it questions, play games with it, and order stuff from Google Express. But it also has a few problems, like it can't set reminders on the Google Home and it doesn't know where Arizona is. Yes, you read that last part correctly.

For at least the past week, Google Homes in Arizona have been incorrectly reporting the local time.
