Do not quote from paid/subscribed sources

 

Please do not quote any materials from a subscribed source.  For instance, much of the Wall Street Journal is in a subscription area.  If you have a subscription to one of these sites and see a wonderful article there, please do not copy and paste it here.  The WSJ is very protective of their content and they are eventually going to come after me if you post things they intend to be read by paying members.

 

So please do not copy and paste any material that is part of a subscription service.  However, if you want to link to these stories on a subscription based site, please do so.  Just mention next to the link that a subscription is required.

DirecTV does currently bundle services with AT&T but none of them are worth anything, not to mention I'm not a fan of their Highspeed/Wireline services.

Here in Florida, AT&T has quadruple play bundles and also does bundles with DirecTv to offer AT&T wireless discounts and DSL/DirecTv packages. If they did become one company, I would have to believe that bundling is going to be a big part of DirecTv subscription models in the future.

I'm sure the FCC will overnight their "Approved" rubber stamp to Dallas so that AT&T can use it on the merger documents themselves. No need for oversight or discussion like that nasty Sprint company deserves for wanting to buy T-Mobile. No sir.

Did you just completely forget that AT&T unsuccessfully tried to buy T-Mobile?

Verizon also offers bundles with DSL and POTS plus Directv, too.  

 

Why do all these ginormous companies want to continue becoming more ginormous?!  It sickens me.

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
