Verizon dropped 10,000 emergency calls (911) during January snowstorm in Maryland, FCC finds it 'alarming

 the emergency services that missed out on these calls were not alerted to the connectivity failure -- in fact, Maryland's Montgomery County officers were the ones to inform Verizon of the fault it was having, which was then promptly repaired within 15 minutes. The FCC is now curtly asking the network to check its entire footprint for similar vulnerabilities -- as the January events were apparently "not unique" -- and to propose remedial actions and monitoring systems to prevent it happening again.

Verizon Customers Dont Be Fooled - It will be interesting how Verizon's Presentation of 4G will "come off" considering the Hype and Verizon's history of "covering up" problems and outright dishonesty toward the customer.  

22 Years with Verizon (8 W/ NE Telephone - 2 W/ Air Touch - both became Verizon)
The final year they sold me a bummer high priced phone (The Storm) and refused to acknowledge it was a mistake and they continuously lied about "speed" on my broadband card.  NOW with Sprint - it's like fresh air - Full Oxygen!

Trading Switch

I have, over the past week, moved from Swing Trading (holding stocks for a few days) to Day Trading (in and out within a day) to finally now - Scalping - trading with in a 45 minute time frame. the markets are on the top floor waiting for all the small investors to load up before they go south.  Currently holding SSO short term puts to make maybe profit from a declining market - the longer it takes the swifter it gets!

WikiLeaks Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

WikiLeaks the good and the bad.

The bad first: it is embarrassing, insulting, and unwarranted in current politics. (Period!)

The Good: They deserve the award, as there is too much privacy in a so called open society
National Security belongs in the bathroom - not in an open society.  National Security is used cover up more than it is used to protect our country.  

personally, the good outweighs the bad - as we see:  Egypt has watched as well as other citizens of other countries.  They see how "awful" the USA acts - and the freedom that goes with awful.

In a free country you have to tolerate everyone! (god bless america, including all of its perceived evil - and its evil political process
