Dish Network Is Partnering With This Startup To Make Cellphone Internet 1,000 Times Faster Than 4G In today's world, there's one area of technology that can almost never be fast enough: the wireless networks that power our mobile devices. Founded in 2011, Artemis is a startup working on pCell, a new wireless standard that it thinks could leapfrog 4G and LTE altogether. Last month, we wrote a gui...

U.S. justices show little support for Aereo TV in copyright fight
(Reuters) - U.S. Supreme Court justices on Tuesday appeared skeptical over online TV startup Aereo Inc's position in a copyright fight with major media companies, but several raised concerns about how a ruling in favor of broadcasters could affect increasingly popular cloud computing services. Aereo, backed by media mogul Barry Diller's IAC/InterActiveCorp, could be forced to shut down if the cou...

The sky is falling! Hackers target satellites
I generally feel underwhelmed when I hear some report of how easy it is to hack almost anything, such as traffic lights, cars, trains, or airplanes. Like most of the digital world, they were not designed by people with a strong understanding of malicious hacking. With that basic assumption in mind, IOActive decided to assess the vulnerability of communication satellites. In a nutshell, here's wha...

Aereo Supreme Court Case Could Change How Americans Watch TV

Today, the two billionaires are on opposite sides of a legal battle between a television streaming startup and America's major broadcasting networks.

Logical proof that Aereo is illegal: Charlie Ergen.
I think there is a common sense approach to determining if the Aereo OTA/DVR service is legal. It is quite simple actually. We all know that Charlie Ergen/Dish Network are the biggest thieves and pirates out there. They haven?t cared about distant network laws, mandatory carry or trademark/copyright. Charlie will steal and take everything he can regardless of the law. So why doesn?t Charlie setup ...

Interview with Aereo CEO about their legal issues

The Wireless Genie Mini just needs power (and a wireless bridge connecte...

Seems that the 1.1 billion taxpayer subsidy is not enough to keep this dinosaur living the good life. They claim that their mandate to serve all of Canada including the remote north is expensive. Yet they already cover the country from Anik F3 BUT ITS ENCRYPTED. Go figure. http://www.torontosun.com/2014/04/10/cbc...rogramming

TWC Coming back to DTV
