Goodbye AT&T, Hello Sonic.net
May 10, 2011
The alternate title for this post is “Internet usage caps can kiss my ass” because that’s what prompted this post, but first a little backstory. Many people have had issues with big teleco (and specifically AT&T) provided internet and would assume that I loathe them for the same reasons, but I do not. I’ve had AT&T DSL since I got my first place in Nevada in 2003. I’ve moved a number of times since then, but I have always had AT&T DSL after each move. Partially because I loathe cable’s shared approach (and usage capping) and partially because I’ve never had a problem with AT&T. Hell, the one time I had trouble recently, that required a tech to come out… he was EARLY. So why the change in heart? Usage caps.
Ok AT&T, I'm offically sick of you

Look, I understand that cell phones are imperfect devices. Hell, everything computerized is imperfect. That being what it is, I only have so much patience and I’ve reached my limit with AT&T Wireless. They suck, and they drive me up a mother loving wall. All I want to do is be able to make a bloody phone call, and I can’t. For years, I’ve accepted a multitude of dropped calls and dead zones, it is imperfect after all… When I can’t even walk down the damn street without losing my call, you’ve lost me as a customer.
Video: First impressions of the Nexus One (AT&T)
April 21, 2010
As I previously promised/threatened: more videos. Here’s my first impressions of the Nexus One after about 12 hours of playing with it. The video is short, just 5 minutes. I move fairly quick and don’t show off a lot of depth, but I’ll cover more detailed aspects down the road in separate videos. (Click to watch in high-def)
