Don't necessarily have any love for the cops in north Georgia but can't really blame 'em. Pissed, bet I am. But this was an honest mistake. Just hope the cops learned something from this to where it won't happen again.
What blows my mind is I had no idea tracking planes like this was possible/legal. I probably shouldn't be surprised but I am. I would think this would be against the law or something, tracking a damn military plane or the like by civilians. And no, I didn't read any of the posted links.
"- the beauty of true competition is that you don't personally have to do anything to get better service in the long run. If competition existing, you will reap the benefits"
Which is exactly what happened in February I believe when TMobile (?) started rolling out some competitive data plans. In turn, at&t increased my mothers 1 gig mobile share plan to 2g for an additional $5 then another 2g for FREE in March, or April for a total of 4g for $5. Twice the dataz, where beforehand going from 1g tier to 2g tier was a $10-20 difference. Easy to guess why they didn't do it before. No? Because they COULD, they just didn't WANT to. So, because of competition my mothers data limit was increased to 4x the original for $5. Which when you think about it is funny because carriers tout mobile bandwidth as the nectar of the gods in low supply that shouldn't be given away willy nilly without milking all that money from that argument. But yes, when competition is there, so are the benefits. Which is why when her contract ends (she didn't know any better? man) she'll be switching to ST for the same amount of data and %50 better reception for almost a 1/3 of the price. Competition is the tits.
That is strange to me. Mainly because a couple years back I was living in the town next over where I had AT&T DSL (Which was complete shit btw, the router kept kicking off. Uninsulated line wires and redneck ingenuity may have had a part to play, though...) which I had to cancel for a month or so. Now, apparently, between that time AT&T laid some FiOS in that town which was strange to me because it's only a town of ~4,100 people and county pop of ~41,000. Because I called them back wanting my service back on, same shitty service yada yada. "I'm sorry sir, but we're only offering AT&T U-Verse as we've laid fiber optics for this service and you won't be able to use the same router as you did previously." What? WHAT!? Who in their right mind would pay for some BS like that when I was fine with the service I DID have, I was at least able to play XBL and not want to put my controller where my tv screen used to be. Anyways, I told him do it and I lived unhappily ever after with the same fucking service I had the 2 months befire under a different name. Working 12 hour 5 day work weeks tends to not make you give a damn. So either you're fibbing or AT&T got some 'splainin to do.
