    FCC Votes to Change How It Handles Consumer Complaints

    That sounds pretty fair. and a heck of a lot better than what the CRTC does here in Canukistan (which is, by the way, introduce enough bureaucracy into everything to the point where your complaint may just be redirected back to you.) If enough people complain formally, there will be a fair war...

    UK Detecting Drivers' Cell Phone Usage

    if you use a GPS, if you listen to streaming music, if you use a hands free device.... Yeah, pointless waste of money. Also, what U-238 said. Unless Shaming works there, but last time I checked offending someone was punishable by death over there, so I guess you can't do that either.

    Intel CEO Brian Krzanich Out Over Relationship With Former Employee

    Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me. Get all the money, make the big decisions, make excuses when your decisions suck, or somehow bend them around to look like good decisions to the investors. Bang a chick on the side, and then still get your golden parachute.. reture.
