FCC formally launches inquiry into wireless competition FCC formally launches inquiry into wireless competition(0)

They might be interested

Apple, the FCC, and the sideloading solution Apple, the FCC, and the sideloading solution(0)

As Engadget’s resident former attorney, my first instinct when I sat down to re-read Apple, AT&T’s and Google’s FCC filings regarding Google Voice was to put on my lawyer hat and try to find inconsistencies that might shed some additional light on what had actually happened — if Apple’s account differed from AT&T’s, for example, perhaps those subtle differences would reveal the actual truth. This proved to be much more difficult than I had imagined, however: not only had Google redacted the most interesting part of its statement, I came to a profound realization after just a few moments of work.

FCC to look into Google Voice, iPhone debacle next week? FCC to look into Google Voice, iPhone debacle next week?(0)

The FCC’s next open committee is on Thursday, and maybe — just maybe — we’ll be able to get to the bottom of this whole “App Store / Google Voice rejection” mess. First, the committee plans to look into ways to “foster innovation and investment in the wireless communications market,” issues related to “truth-in-billing,” and exclusivity agreements between carriers and handset manufacturers, which critics say punish consumers in rural areas that the “big four” (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile) don’t serve.

AT&T Is Unable to Prevent Hackers From Stealing Customer Data AT&T Is Unable to Prevent Hackers From Stealing Customer Data(0)

“They can’t seem to secure my account,” Mitnick told The Register. “And then instead of doing something about it, they try to kill the messenger and want to boot me off their network when all I want them to do is to secure my account so no one gets access to my phone records.”

Mitnick said the cellular account has been repeatedly breached over the years, despite a wide range of countermeasures he’s followed to prevent the attacks. In recent years, he’s committed the password to memory and has deliberately not shared it with anyone or kept it stored on a computer. …
