    hey MIA what is your take on Softbank buying T-Mobile ( same company that bought sprint) ? because the things ive seen is most people are against it but im kinda looking forward because I would FINLAY get 3g in my city and have more capacity to hold more people than ATT and verizon
    Hmmm...didn't know it went official, what I last read was that nothing had broke even though they were in deep talks. Honestly, I have an unlocked device, so I don't really care as much - unless they jack the prices up pr male the service ****ty. DT has been trying to sell t-mo USA for Y-E-A-R-S, so we knew something like that would happen eventually...

    so I decided to see what this whole duck dynasty controversy thing was and so far my reaction to this is " wtf are people really that offended to what he feels .sure he could of worded it differently but really!? so if you are not with the whole coming out of the closet thing you are not a normal person which means we have to cancel your show. looks like im thinking you cant express your opinion anymore because if its against the minority ( well in Cali at least many people are against it ) you cant say any thing -.- anyways still don't know why people get so offended over one persons opinion an Opinion that wont have a direct effect on the offended one >.>
    It is 2013. Life is no longer about simple ethnocentrism. There is a big difference between ethnocentrism and racism. Ethnocentrism we could potentially tolerate somewhat, but too many people claim to be extremely ethnocentric when what they're doing is flat out racism. I still stay if he believed what he believed, since I cannot tell him what to think, he should do what the smart people do - play nice for the cameras, make his money and express those views as far away from the cameras as much as possible. Now, do I agree with some of his views? No, but this isn't the old days where it is ok to mouth off like that.

    that's true but then again when there are shows like that . its kinda expected to have things like that slip or said just because he could . I do agree he could of said it nicer or not said it at all just to save a lot of headache

    Oh, ok. Well, I meant if it leads to lower rates for us consumers and better coverage and better value for money, I'm all for it. Otherwise, it doesn't move my needle too much...

    I think it will eventually happen because spectrum is scares now and mobie carriers need that and sprint has the most spectrum than the other 3 and T-Mobile has cheaper rates so I can see the benefit there more spectrum = more speed and no slowdowns ! but I can see the downside that if Softbank is greedy they could raise prices and not try to " shake up the mobile industry" then the united states will not have options to choses what cheap carrier they want because all 3 carriers will be equally expansive :(

    Yes, it is expected, but again, the producers are making money off these folks almost expect a foot in the mouth comment. The trick is that they hope it isn't something too bad that they cannot ride out. Controversy,like sex, still sells...

    Yeah, i get all that. But the reason why spectrum is scarce is that they're signing up more users as fast as they, so the spectrum is needed stay in consumers' pockets. It is not a charity, they're in the business of making money after all...

    They will. The show is still popular enough that money will be made off merchandise, reruns and spin offs, even if they cancel it. It isn't like duck dynasty was a one season hit wonder...

    So the food came out good last night at the GF's...at least it was good in my opinion. She's been kvetching since dinner last night that the stuffed mushrooms and the lasagna wasn't cheesy enough. I swear, if I hear her chunter about how not cheesy enough the food is again tomorrow I will seriously contemplate stapling my ears shut...

    Good night folks. Gonna go clean up my apartment slightly before bed. Not really home that much over the past few weeks so perhaps I need to steal a day off to do that cleaning I need to do that I've put off a few times. Got to break in my shredder bought on black Friday at some point, right?
