Chevrolet Volt: Interesting review of test driving a Chevrolet Volt, GM's "electric" car. Prolly
enough negative comments that I wouldn't consider buying one.
Google getting less useful: Washington Post today had a story that's a case study of the Google signal to noise ratio upon searching for a specific answer is getting ever lower. I often find a useless hit that's just

AT&T admits it can't run POTS: AT&T applied to the FCC for permission to shut down POTS last month. I called in to ask when I would receive the unearned portion of my previous bill (they bill in advance) and was told "The check was cut yesterday". Should I believe that or is that from a script?
AT&T Mobility gets bad publicity: So yesterday at lunch time I'm listening to Jim Rome trying to interview Aaron Rogers about the up coming NFL Championship game. Rogers called in from Green Bay, Wisconsin on his iPhone. 3 separate times the call dropped or turned into a garbled staticy mess like it was an analog call. As Green Bay fan noticed here. Jim Rome proceeded with a long verbal tirade about how bad AT&T cell phone service is. And this year's ratings of cellular companies for consumer service rated AT&T worst. It took AT&T many years and a lot of effort to replace Sprint PCS as worst.

IDIOTS AT AT&T: So January 7, my AT&T POTS telephone number was ported over to Ooma.
Then Jan. 18, I receive a Postal Mail from AT&T (dated Jan. 11) asking me whether the disconnect of POTS was authorized. Why would they not call Jan 2 or at worst on Jan 7 BEFORE when they knew of the disconnect coming? Makes me happy to be done with those clowns.

Landline now with Ooma instead of AT&T: Today was my porting day, and my 23 year old ATT landline is now handled by Ooma. Was only down for 3 hours this AM.

AT&T doesn't keep it's promises, I keep mine.
