Super Bowl Commercials

Recommended Posts

Whether you like or hate Tmo (in spite of probably having to welcome them as our new overlords before long), I have to say - the only commercials last night that were in the same league in terms of entertainment with Tmo's 'text' commercials were the Bug Light/medieval ones....and while there were a few funny ones, those are starting to get a bit stale overall.

What happened to the days when almost every commercial was actually worth next-day watercooler discussion?  I don't remember the last time I watched a Super Bowl and was really truly wow'ed by the quality (and/or laughs) of the majority of the commercials.

Nostalgia was originally meant as a disease. Doctors in the US Civil war used the term to mean “homesickness.”

Commertials typically target the 25 to 40 year olds, not me any more. And that’s OK by me. But I did enjoy those T-Mobile chat commertials. The one where the daughter keeps texting her dad that text is not Google and then just sends the chicken  parmesan recipe made me laugh. It looked familiar.

Added attachment then tried to delete copy, then corrected misspelling of “mean”. Then thought to leave the duplicate and this text as a self referential joke as another incompetent “dad.”

    • I signed up for Sprint's unlimited kickstart plan and noticed there is a lot of "extended network" coverage near me. Today was the first chance I had to test it when I left native coverage. It switches to US Cellular but all I got was the R indicator on my phone. Same indicator when it switches to Verizon. I have my settings as Automatic for network instead of Home only. I also have data roaming turned off. Basically my question is, how can I know when I am on extended network instead of roaming? Most of the coverage west of me shows extended network with very little roaming areas. I don't want to get charged for roaming on accident. 
    • I say what a wase to design turn to fail in 5 years instead of design then to last for a long time better for environment
    • Nice set of CA combos! I'm guessing it's 2x2 only right? I'm waiting for a 4x4 modem with those CA combos or better (4x+ CA) to be more future proofed, since the AT&T tower I'm using now doesn't have 4x4 yet or even B4/66 (adjacent ones do). I'm just not sure how to orient the antennas for 4x4... Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
    • They're in a low enough orbit that they should burn up within a year or two I think if they don't boost their altitude. They're designed to deorbit quickly upon failure. And I believe they're also designed to only last like 5 years before needing replaced due to running out of fuel? At least SpaceX's are. They said they will have to continuingly replace them. So space junk shouldn't be a problem, unless they collide at enough velocity that some pieces are ejected to a higher orbit. But I think studied were performed to show the risk of this is minimal. The bigger issue I believe would be its effect on Earth based visual astronomy (see Starlink "train"). Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
    • A VPN will skew the results. You should not have a VPN on whole doing speed test mapping. VoLTE will not matter, they operate on different EUTRA sessions https://s4gru.com/entry/439-sprints-casting-call-of-voice-over-actors-an-in-depth-analysis-of-volte-calling-and-vowifi/ it shouldn't even be able to tell that you have VoLTE on. That being said, if you're on an active VoLTE call, then that may affect things. Recently, Sprint started preferring dropping to band 26 during tower handoffs while on a VoLTE call. So a call may start out on B41, but if you're moving, when it hands off to the next tower it often switches to B26. This improves VoLTE performance and quality, but will result in slower data speeds and showing B26 available instead of b25 or b41 in your mapping. Congestion on B26 has no effect at all on VoLTE calls, but will be reflected in speed tests performed while on the call   Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
