Senators Throwing Punches At AT&T

Sprint isn’t the only one who opposes the AT&T merge with T-Mobile. A few U.S. senators have also spoken up against the deal. Although AT&T spins the deal as one that will help customers nationwide with coverage, a few senators question the spin off. Senator Al Franken from Minnesota stated that the acquisition would allow AT&T to raise prices and cut thousands of jobs. Senator Herb Kohl from Wisconsin also claimed that the merger would give AT&T a 43% share of the U.S. mobile market. AT&T and Verizon would share about 80% of the market if the deal went through, he said.

What’s even more interesting is that this is found all throughout India, rather than being concentrated on metropolitan areas.

View WiFi Signals In Terms Of White Light (Video Proof)

Norway design researchers are working on displaying the material and spatial qualities of WiFi networks through light, demonstrating signal strength in long-exposure photographs. The researchers have built a tall wooden probe, measuring four meters high, a WiFi module, and used 80 LEDS.

The 80 LEDs run a length that pulses and raises based on the strength of a specified WiFi network. After three weeks of hard work in Oslo, Norway, the pulsing lights have created a physical representation of the invisible world of WiFi networks.
