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.

You can now make Alexa-to-phone number calls in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Alexa-to-Alexa calls in the UK, Germany, and Austria

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Amazon introduced calling and messaging to its Echo speakers back in May then implemented the same feature inside the Alexa app so you could start a call or receive one from your phone, without having to be near your Echo. However, the feature had one main limitation: the person you were calling had to have an Echo or at least Alexa calling set up. Calls to phone numbers weren't possible, but now they are.

Here's an almost-freebie to start off your week: Google Home's promotions page has added one new offer for you to take advantage of: 3 months of Deezer Premium+ for $0.99. That's one buck for 3 months of unlimited, on-demand streaming, no ads, but with offline saves and high-quality audio. Deezer Premium+ normally costs $6/month or thereabout, depending on where you live, so you'd be saving around $17.

The offer shows up on Google Home's promotional support page in the US, UK, Germany, Australia, and Canada, but oddly not France.

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.

The phones have been well-received, and HMD seems dedicated to quick updates. Unfortunately, none of them have been (officially) available in the United States.

HMD Global has announced that the Nokia 6 will go on sale in the United States in "early July," through Amazon.

The BlackBerry KEYone will go on sale May 31 in the United States, in both GSM and CDMA variants

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

The BlackBerry KEYone is a strange phone. Not just because it has a physical keyboard in 2017, long after that feature has gone out of style, but because it commands a rather high price point for that feature. But if you have been waiting to get a KEYone of your own, you will be able to do so on May 31 (which just arrived on the East Coast).

We already knew that the phone would launch on that date in the US, but BlackBerry has just now filled in some of the details.
