Sprint commercial

Has anyone seen the commercial Sprint is running for the holidays? It features lots of cat and dog video clips. What kills me is that they are standard definition, with black bars on the sides. Why, Dan, why? These are simulated images! At least simulate HD!

What you haven't figured out is every last one of those clips of the pets were shot by people on the street. The 1st cat, the owner was called up by the ad agency asking if they could use the YouTube video of his vocal cat, especially when the cat is hungry. It is most clips the owners of the animals shot themselves with exception of the polar bear which in all likely hood was shot by someone visiting a zoo. They are all amateur videos that were requested for use by ad agency. The guy with the 1st cat explained the ad but I can't remember where I read it this week.

From a Labrador point of view. He hears the barking' date=' meows, and rodent squeaks and it's like yelling SQUIRREL!

It makes me look at the tube.

Maybe the ad guys are leveraging pet/person relationship. :rolleyes:[/quote']

 

My lab just gives a bored bark. She must feel like she needs to respond, but she doesn't want to expend too much effort.

    • Checked and downloading a 1.6 MB Google Play System update.    Still reflects June 1 after.

    • The options to ignore GCI/NCI/PLMN/TAC are buggy.. working on resolving it. NSA cells are probably not being logged for most users yet.
    • Boost Mobile – the Newest Wireless Carrier – Launches New State-of-the-Art Nationwide 5G Network, Plans and Branding https://about.dish.com/2024-07-17-Boost-Mobile-the-Newest-Wireless-Carrier-Launches-New-State-of-the-Art-Nationwide-5G-Network,-Plans-and-Branding I'm really digging the relaunch of the brand. The new app is a lot better than before in that it actually feels like they're going a more premium route. The BoostOne app tried to gamify wireless service by making you want videos or download games in order to get discounts on your bill. Now it's decluttered and basically only account management. It's perfect. I was on a promotional $25/month unlimited plan on Boost Mobile and I just switched to the new $25 forever plan which is pretty much the same as before, the only exception being that now I'm price locked. The only thing I wish they'd do is start using QCIs instead of throttling once you use up your allotment of "premium data". I understand that they don't have as much capacity as the big 3 and that they're super reliant on AT&T and T-Mobile outside of major metros but hitting 30GB and being throttled to 512kbps is not competitive. They then try to charge $30 for an extra 10GB of high speed data. The big 3 and their prepaid brands have basically given up on hard throttling and use prioritization instead. They should consider doing the same. The next step for them is getting their name on Apple's websites this fall when the new iPhones drop. That's some of the best advertising a carrier can have. Instantly millions of people will learn that Boost Mobile is an actual carrier if they can pull that off.
    • Use cloud features or backup files first before updating with this firmware.  I updated my S24 Ultra with this update.  T-Mobile and Verizon network esims worked fine.  Dish Rainbow sim appeared to work fine.  Right after that, when I rebooted to another non-public test esim which previously worked fine, I got the Samsung Welcome screen.
