Venting My Anger–Again…

Software Updates I admit that I use technology more than the average person. Maybe I need to change that, because I am sick to death of sitting down to work at one of my computers only to be greeted with a bunch of software updates — which I always feel compelled to do immediately and be done with. Then, 5… Continue reading

How Do I Love Thee–NOT!

Just spreading the AT&T love… AT&T promised to spend $2 billion upgrading its wireless network this year. Whatever it has spent on the upgrades so far isn’t helping. A new report from ChangeWave Research (via Philip Elmer DeWitt) shows consumer dissatisfaction growing with AT&T, while it’s decreasing with Verizon.

That’s Right: Tell It Like It Is!

My dislike of AT&T has been no secret on my blog. Others have shared similar disgust both in my blog’s comments section and in personal email. To recap just a single reason AT&T has earned my ire: Because AT&T will not offer me the tethered wireless internet connection* my iPhone supports, I have a Verizon wireless card that allows me… Continue reading
