Even if the NSA did stop collecting this metadata, it might actually be counter-productive. The more data they collect, the harder it is for them to find the needle in the haystack. There's so much data that I bet most of it never gets looked at or evaluated. If they only collect, but never actually look at the data, then while it's still a violation of our privacy, it's not actually doing any harm. But if they start collecting less data, then it's far more likely...
Nothing wrong with a Blackberry keyboard.   The one (probably the only) thing I liked about my Blackberry back before the iPhone, was the keyboard.  Could type far faster on the Blackberry keyboard than I can on the iPhone.    If you need to send a lot of emails that have more than a few sentences, the Blackberry is actually far more efficient.   And from the above photo, it looks like the Blackberry now works much like a smartphone.   I hadn't realized they had done that....
Your pulse rate doesn't change in different parts of your body.   I could understand if it read very low because it couldn't pick up the pulse from my finger, but it read super high.    And judging from the other posts, there are definitely other problems.   I'm sure they'll eventually get it straightened out, but if I had bought the watch primarily as a health tracking device, I'd probably be pretty upset. 
 Brilliant logic.   We have laws against speeding and think they're a good idea, but people still speed.  Same for going through red lights.   Same for robbery.  Etc.    No law can completely eliminate crime (or idiots).   But in 2008, there were 757 murders in the UK, gun related or otherwise.   In the U.S., there were 14,000 murders in the same year, 9500 of which were gun related.   In 2008, there were 61 million people in the UK as compared with about 300 million in...
I don't watch all that much video on my phone, so throttling is not an issue.   I would switch to T-Mobile or Credo, but I'm concerned about coverage.    I know that with T-Mobile, for example, I probably would not receive any coverage at my daughter's house in upstate NY.    
IMO, the only problem with the free U2 album was the fact that you couldn't simply swipe it away on your phone.   I really think people over-reacted to getting a free album from a major band, whether one liked the band or not.    Personally, after listening to it once, I decided I would never listen to it again and used the tool to delete it, but I was more bemused than angry about it.    From all the hate, you'd think that by pushing it to one's phone, they wiped out your...
I doubt this will happen.    AT&T's sales in Apple stores would drop like a stone, especially if Verizon didn't respond in-kind.    And if it does happen, expect it to revert back quickly after it backfires.    AT&T's retail sucks.   I'm grandfathered into an unlimited data plan with AT&T and when I was considering buying the iPhone6 long after my previous 2-year contract with AT&T was up, the AT&T sales reps gave me a really hard time and told me that I was no longer...
If you can receive reception, over-the-air digital reception is generally superior to many (but not all) cable or satellite systems because the over-the-air signal is not compressed.   But digital broadcast TV has lower powered signals than its analog counterpart and especially out of the primary reception area, it's all or nothing.  With analog TV, you might have gotten a really bad picture, but you'd get something.     Line-of-sight is also much more important with...
That can't easily be done either.   When a commercial is made under a union contract, the unions want separate payments for the spots that are also streamed.   That's why when you listen to certain commercial radio stations on the stream, there are sometimes huge blanks or alternate programming where the commercials go.   They have to take them out.  But there shouldn't be such a problem with doing deals with OTA local channels if the FCC considers Apple to be an MSO, same...
I was in an Apple Store last week and put my finger under the watch. It claimed my pulse rate was 163 bpm. I was excited to see the watch, but not that excited. think I'd be dead of that were the case. I don't know if the OS update had been run on those watches and I don't know if there is any kind of calibration procedure, but that number was obviously way wrong. My pulse rate is normally in the 70s.
