Are You Getting The Internet Speeds You Are Paying For? | New York State Attorney General 

Are You Getting The Internet Speeds You Are Paying For? | New York State Attorney General  | @BadasseBs | Scoop.it
The Office of the New York State Attorney General is investigating consumer Internet speeds. We encourage New Yorkers to test their own broadband speed at home, and submit the test to help our office determine what internet speeds consumers are receiving. This is how you do it:
Bonnie Sandy's insight:
I've long suspected that certain neighborhoods got worse service than others... Are you getting the Internet Speed You're Paying For?
Provider promised
5MBps
he actual number
0.99 Mbps ...
no wonder it literally took me 5 times as long to post this than if I'd been in certain neighborhoods.

https://ag.ny.gov/internet-speed?wssl=1

Why does it matter well local folks cannot compete... business wise. It affects access to video-enabled learning slow speeds for businesses who then will not be able to compete. Those who want to stream then buy more expensive plans...

Please share and do this test asap ... before they can adjust. Not in NY... why not test anyway... if it's as bad as NY's you know what to do...

@YCombinator isn't this  institutional welfare - who stand up against the hand that feeds them

@YCombinator isn't this  institutional welfare - who stand up against the hand that feeds them | @BadasseBs | Scoop.it
“If technology eliminates jobs or jobs continue to become less secure, an increasing number of people will be unable to make ends meet with earnings from employment. Basic income is one way to ensure that people are able to meet their basic needs. We’re not sure how it would work or if it’s the best solution, which is why we want to conduct this study.”
Bonnie Sandy's insight:
@YCombinator isn't this institutional welfare - who stand up against the hand that feeds them?  Like many my first reaction was cool. It's what very  entrepreneur wants, the eideal of not having to worry about  the bills as they build. Till I actually read the article. This is NOT  about  industrial or entrepreneurial creation. Essentially this is a social experiment aimed at artificially balancing the socio- economic ecosystem. 

The bottom line is tech companies want huge profit magins, which means paying less, hiring less, sending  jobs over seas, using robots, Unfortunately people who do not earn do not spend. So their solution.

Lets give them a stipend,  money  and artificially  create an  ecosystem. It is not a new idea it's a 3rd world solution  hyped by tech. 

Based on past GLOBAL  experience the end result of this Intitutional welfare, is usually generational  "Poverty".  The scariest "result" though is  DEPENDENCY on  a political and/or corporate entity that eradicates the very nature of "FREEDOM". Who will stand up against the hand that feeds them! Ask  folks from my native TT about DEWD or it's most recent incanations SMDH -

After six months with Google's Project Fi, I'd switch to it if I could @Nicole's review

After six months with Google's Project Fi, I'd  switch to it if I could @Nicole's review | @BadasseBs | Scoop.it
As with any carrier, you can port over an existing number or opt for a new one. But there's a caveat if you're a current Google Voice user. If you decide to use Fi with a non-Google Voice number -- say, a primary phone number or a new line altogether -- then by signing up with Fi, you're forfeiting the use of that Google Voice number forever. That's it. No take-backs. For me, keeping my Google Voice number was pretty important -- I sometimes use it as a secondary number for work -- so I decided to assign my Fi service to it. Which is fine, but I wish I didn't have such a conundrum over whether to keep my Google Voice number alive just so I could use Fi. [Ed. Correction: We're told that you can actually transfer that Google Voice number to a separate Google account if you want to keep it, so all is not lost.]

Essentiall google will Collect and shift through and then link you to fact sites based on a google algorithm.

 Novelist runs into fiery home for laptop with his life's work | @BadasseBs | Scoop.it
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Avoiding a nasty real-life plot twist, a writer dashed past firefighters into a burning New Orleans house Thursday to rescue two completed novels stored on his laptop. "Anybody that's ever created art, there's no replacing that," Gideon Hodge, 35, told The New Orleans Advocate (http://bit.ly/2chyJqg) after safely making it out of the burning building with the computer. The fire in New Orleans' Broadmoor neighborhood had spread to the house where Hodge lived from an empty, single-family house next door, where firefighters believe it started.
Bonnie Sandy's insight:
#Howto #safeguard your creative assets in case of  Fire, Flood Earthquake - The question many will ask on seeing this is. How do I safeguard my  art at an affordable rate.  An external hard drive is great for backing up you files (remember you can download a copy of your social media assets), however fire and flood can destroy both your device and it's back up. That where  the "cloud"  option comes in handy...  So many are  put off because it seems complicated. There is dropbox.com, Drive.google.com, books.google.com photos.google.com in fact  just check the list of Google products,  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Google_products.
There is also Flickr and a slew of other tools. You just need to remember the passwords or share it with a proxy in case of emergency.  BTW -To back up you  website/blogs enter the url into the way back machine https://archive.org/web/
