The big news back in October was that Verizon was planning to increase the price of Grandfathered Unlimited Data Plans by $20 per month (which they did as of November 15th). Although many of our members are on Verizon, we still have quite a few who are on AT&T. Sadly yet unsurprisingly, it looks like AT&T is following Verizon's lead.

AT&T just announced last night they plan to raise the rates of users on their Grandfathered Unlimited Plans by $5, (from $30 to $35 per month). This price increase will take effect starting in February of 2016. Folks on a Grandfathered Unlimited Data Plan for AT&T will still have their data throttled if they exceed 22GB per month (which was raised from a 5GB per month throttle not to long ago).

For more of the details, here is AT&T's full press release: AT&T

The days of Minority Report and Iron Man style interactive holograms may not be that far off. Japanese engineers have recently developed a working prototype for "touchable" holograms. Their tech fires high-frequency laser pulses which last 1 millionth of 1 billionth of a second in order to create the illusion of physical contact with the holographic projection.

While the scientists are specifically developing the tech with a forward focus on architecture and medicine, it's obvious that a number of other amazing applications are possible... video games!

Seriously though... this is some amazing stuff, and we are lucky to be able to follow this kind of news as it develops!

You can check out a video demonstration of the tech in the thread below.

Prepare to cringe at the world's worst tablet. It's not at all surprising that the company which manufactured this horrible piece of trash went bankrupt. What is surprising is that it ever got this far into production at all.

You can watch a video in the thread below that is a teardown of this craptacular turd called the Esinomed Infoview Medical Tablet Computer. (It's extra scary that it was meant for medical use.) The tablet was based on off the shelf PC parts and its OS of choice was Windows XP. Feel free to digest that for a moment...

Not only does this pile of poo use double-sided adhesive tape to hold the motherboard to the bottom, it also uses a pack of rechargeable AA batteries as power. The batteries don't even have sockets between, but instead are soldered to each other with loose wires.

If this thing were some retro-fitted virtual device found in the post-apocalyptic Fallout 4 game, it might be kinda cool. Considering this was a real life device, it makes you wonder what its creators were smoking when they attempted to market this monstrosity. It's also a wonder they ever got it functioning in the first place.

Here's a hot deal on the Samsung Galaxy S6. Amazon has it for just $399.99 for today only. While this is technically a Cyber Monday deal, we thought it worth singling out. This is a 32GB Samsung U.S. Certified Factory Unlocked Galaxy S6 with full U.S. Warranty. It is model number SM-G920TZKAXAR, meaning it is International 4G LTE Capable. You just need to pop in the right SIM card for your network.

Here's the link to the Amazon offer. As of the time of this post it will run out in about 16 hours: Amazon

Google tops the list of best places to work in 2015, according to Glassdoor, and Apple trails behind at 22 (which is not bad considering). I am a believer that if you love where you work you will get a better effort and therefore your company benefits in the long run. I know companies are trying to compete with other companies who are able to to the jobs cheaper but I applaud companies that continue to strive to take care of their employees.

Is your company on the list?

What do you think of this list?

Would you recommend your place of employment for being on this list?

This past weekend they estimated that Black Friday sales were down a billion dollars. While online sales went up we saw traditional Black Friday shopping at brick and mortar stores plummeted. Yeah we still had those who wanted to go out and fight over a tv, but shoppers seem to have wised up. Why wake up early after a day of stuffing your face to fight over a sale when you can do it from the same device you are using to surf through fb and twitter.

Unless you have to have it right now, which Amazon is looking to change that with their drones, then you end up saving time, hassle, headache, and money. Unfortunately this could hurt those who pick up those extra hours over the holidays at your local brick and mortar, but it means not having to get up early on your day off.
