I thought this just smelled funny. I love AT&T's progression.

1: Oh, we love Unlimited!
2: We found that 99% of our customers use less than 2GBs..so we are going to kill unlimited and offer 2GBs and 200MBs. You can keep your unlimited if you want.
3: All you unlimited folks are now being measured against an unknown moving figure which we will call the top "5% data users" which will eventually scale your bandwidth cap down below our 2GB limits. Essentially, we are adding bandwidth caps to unlimited without calling them bandwidth caps.
4: Oh crap..uhmm we have noticed that users are using more than 2GBs, so here..we are going to offer larger plans.

facepalm

I would also like to mention that your bandwidth usage is impossible to really measure and have useful feedback, much like maybe using a Kill-a-watt on your appliances at home. I seriously believe that bandwidth caps will kill all the strides we have made with the Internet and mobile computing since the last time carriers had these caps.

Making sense of the new AT&T data plans | Macworld

With AT&T introducing new data plan rates this Sunday, existing customers need to consider whether to stick with their old plan or opt for the new pricing.

They are not even trying to hide it anymore…

They are not even trying to hide it anymore. I think this aims toward why we as a people need to force our government to block ANY politician from receiving any lobby money.

Internet blacklist power to be stripped from Senate’s PROTECT IP Act
Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) doesn’t want to give up his DNS-based Interent blacklisting plans—but he’s willing to put them on hold. One of the key drivers of the PROTECT IP Act in the Senate announced today that he will recommend stripping the DNS-blocking provisions from his bill while further technical studies are underway.

The complaints against DNS-based blocking have been vocal ones. Leahy announced his plan today to introduce a “manager’s am…

Da Vinci LittleBigPlanet CPU v2 Release!

I have officially finished programmer, program reader, and CPU for LittleBigPlanet 2! Sorry for the delay, but it was difficult to construct the programmer and I had a major bug in the Shift Registers causing all information to be dropped.

I will post a video and PDF on how to fully use the CPU/Programmer later on in the day as I have to head off for Calculus in a few minutes.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask either here or on PSN msg me at Deamos.

You can find the link to the lbp.me site here!

Da Vinci Delay

Afternoon folks!

I just wanted to post an apology on the release of Da Vinci.  The processor is complete and 100% working.  I have also almost completed work on a programming method consisting of dynamic blocks created by a coding device.  I promise I will work as hard as I can on finishing the input device for the processor and plan to allow it to switch between programming blocks and connected devices, allowing you to pull in bits from switches outside of my CPU & the program blocks, allowing you to create highly advanced systems.

I’ll post up some pictures of the programming blocks when my PS3 finishes updating to 3.60.

Also, I would love to get someone to record some videos with me so I can get some instructional vids up on youtube.  Send me a tweet @Deamos on Twitter.
