3G Tethering

Many of the 3G carriers offer the ability to share WiFi to mobile devices that can use the wireless internet. It would be great if this was included into your unlimited phone plan but this is simply not the case. Each provider has an additional charge of about $20 per month for this added feature. This is an extremely high price and I do not see how it can be justified by the mobile carriers.

The price for some at home high speed internet services are anywhere from $19.99 to about $30 per month roughly around the same price range as the services to use your mobile 3G phone and pump out that connection and turn it into a wireless or tethered internet connection. I do not see that many people who are willing to pay such a hefty price. Unless you are on the road or commute by train and must submit work online it just does not make much sense.

The main reason this price point is a bit absurd is that people who are technically inclined can access the administrative properties of their phones whether they are Android or iPhones and can manipulate the phone in such a way to obtain this service for free. All you have to do is a quick search for how to root your phone which is the term used for going into the phone and gaining the administrative access to manipulate the phones properties. If the directions seem complex there are a plethora of YouTube videos that provide a step by step guide.

Cell phone providers do not want everyone getting a paid service for free, and really what company would want that to happen? The fact of the matter is they provoked the rooting of phones by offering unlimited data plans and then saying that you are not allowed to tether WiFi to devices unless you pay yet another monthly fee on top of the unlimited data plan you already pay for. Then it technically is not an unlimited data plan it is an unlimited select services plan.

As long as people are pushed they will find solutions to potential problems and many people just do not take kindly to being lied to so blatantly with the sneaky billing tactics of cell phone companies. While I usually do things by the book I can see why people would circumnavigate the providers. Tethering WiFi could be a great selling point for business people, older adults on the road or people who just want the latest and greatest technologies. However they need to make the price more attractive or people will just find ways around it by rooting their phones and hampering the integrity and speed of the wireless networks.

The Dangerous Mix Of Celebrities And Social Media! How? Have A Look

20 years ago, before Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace joined the American lexicon, people had very few ways to find out about their favorite celebrities. Gossip magazines were popular, as were tabloid television shows that reported more up-to-the-minute news than a weekly magazine was able to. This all changed, however, when social media sites exploded onto the Internet. Before long celebrities joined up in an attempt to promote themselves. Some, like Kim Kardashian, have been quite successful at making money off the posts and “tweets” they send out for their millions of fans to read.

The question must be asked, though, is this a good thing?

Social media sites have effectively brought the celebrities and their fans almost as close as they can possibly be. Friending a pop star gives anybody nearly unfettered access to the singer, no matter the time of day or night. The result of this sudden desire to put every thought on Facebook or Twitter means that a celebrities’ simple musings or bad idea of a joke has the potential to become headline and to achieve high instagram followers, resulting in news around the country. In addition, there are much more nefarious consequences of opening a social media account. The fan that Miley Cyrus just friended? He’s not a 12 year old girl, he’s a hacker who now has potential access to Miley’s computer via her Facebook account.

Many stars have felt the pain of their personal phones and computers being hacked. Chris Brown and Rhianna have had nude pictures of themselves spread all over the web while Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan have had to deal with the fallout of their personal info being leaked. Hayley Williams, lead singer of the band Paramore, mistakenly sent a naked picture of herself out to all her Twitter followers while it was only supposed to go to her boyfriend via a personal message.

Beyond those instances, tweets and Facebook posts can have negative consequences as well. After the devastating earthquake in Japan recently, Gilbert Gottfried posted as many as a dozen jokes about it, all of which were in bad taste. He was fired from his job as the Aflac duck almost instantly. Rapper 50 Cent also took to Twitter and it landed him in some hot water. After telling his millions of followers to invest in a stock for a company he owned part of, he was forced to take down his Tweets by the SEC.

Before these sites revolutionized the contact between stars and their fans, celebrities routinely had their publicists or representatives issues statements. These people were trained to say the right things at the right times. Stars most likely do not have this training so their personal musings do not have the luxury of being “cleansed.”

It is obvious social media is here to stay. Likewise, famous people are more than likely going to continue using these sites as a vehicle to further their careers. Frequently hearing about inappropriate posts or seeing the occasional naked pictures or sex tape are things that will come with the territory. This is just another way the ever-evolving technological world of social media will be impacting the future.
