Mobile Wireless Services From FreedomPop

With data dominating in the mobile field, and given the penchant of customers for text messaging, many phone companies are offering relatively inexpensive data plans with various price options and features. This means confusion over which plan to choose from and what company is the best choice for the long run. As you compare various data plans, you will see that the plan price varies for the same feature and bandwidth. So what makes one company better over another? This is a question that can only be answered after thorough investigation.

Today, companies that offer mobile services have their data plans in place in various fashions. The first option allows the customer to get this plan attached to the mobile device. This means when the customer buys a smartphone, the plan comes along with subscription. The other way to get this plan is to sign up with various subsidiaries of the service provider. While many providers combine voice and text and bundle it so that the customer focuses attention on the entire package only, it is wise to look at the individual parts and decide which plan suits best for the situation. For example, one company offers free basic data plan with voice and other features. Another has a better coverage with stand alone data plan.

At companies like FreedomPop, data plans and hotspot plans are affordably priced and these plans come with top features, unlimited text and talk as well. Most data plans offered here are easy to budget as there are no hidden costs, taxes and fees. You know exactly what you are paying for and can predict the same for the next billing cycle. There are also variety of prepaid and post paid plans to choose from, and some of the high-speed data plans have great add-on features to match your phone usage habits. You can also choose from individual data plans, family plans with additional lines for a great price, international calling plans and so on. So, basically, at FreedomPop what you get from the plan is what you see and what the company’s terms and conditions imply, without the added baggage.

FreedomPop is a mobile phone and wireless internet service provider from Los Angeles, California. The company is well-known for its quality products and services and serves as the main provider of data voice and text services for Sprint and Clearwire. It also sells tablets, broadband devices, mobile phones and other products to be used in conjunction with these services.

FreedomPop, as mentioned earlier, offers affordable service be it mobile or internet. It is basically designed for light users. The paid options have unlimited talk and text option with added high-speed data. Their ‘Unlimited Everything Plan’ makes it easier for customers to save money by dropping from 4G LTE data to 3G after 1GB of data usage. However, their service in limited to only a few locations. To compensate this deficiency, the carrier offers good coverage and high quality call service without any issue.

FreedomPop’s Independent Venture

FreedomPop, one of the world’s most innovative mobile carriers has decided to become an independent company after long deliberation. The company had decided to transform itself into an independent company after it received 30 million dollars worth of funds. The company FreedomPop is currently being funding by multiple European companies. In addition, this mobile carrier will also continue its continuous partnership such as DCM Capital and Mangrove Capital. A strategic investor, though not named yet, will also be involved with the company.

The venture to go solo started when CEO Stephen Stokols stated that at first, he was deciding whether or not to sell FreedomPop. Stephen Stokols finally reached the conclusion that it was too early to sell his beloved company. As Stokols states, FreedomPop is a unique company that is set apart from all the other mobile carriers. The business model that is combined with the provided services, are unique to any other company specializing in mobile carriers.

The FreedomPop mobile carrier has set themselves apart by offering a certain amount of voice, texting, and data that are all free. This offered service has been created with the intention of not over charging customers. Instead this service shows customers that the company values their membership and not their money.

Stokols on track to sell his company until he realized that his company could be kept with the help of international investors. Stokol’s decision was much inspired by HBO’s “Silicon Valley”. The stars of this show, like Stokols held a multi-billion dollar company in their pocket with the option to sell the product to anyone. His new decision to move forward with his company may quadruple the value of his company. Thanks to the international investors that are now involved, mobile carrier customers can now purchase a carrier that is geared more towards the customer and not the money.

Cloud Creation

Our best and brightest get into Ivy League universities in this country. Although Ivy League refers to a collegiate athletic conference, it does double-duty as a way to refer to the top eight universities in the country. More to this point, not too many people consider those that go to these schools to be humanitarians, and they are hardly regarded as being altruistic. Every now and again, however, some make it through the system with empathy intact. Eric Pulier, the former Vice President and General Manager of Cloud at Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), might be just one of those special philanthropic people who has great regard for betterment of the lives of his fellow man. 

His first solo venture after graduating from Harvard was starting People Doing Things (PDT), a company that leverages technology to address healthcare, education and other issues. Eric Pulier also was instrumental in getting Starbright World, a sort of Facebook for children who are chronically ill, started. X-Prize Foundation, which sponsors competitions to solve some of humanities greatest challenges, are lucky to have Mr. Pulier on the innovation board. He is also the co-founder of ServiceMesh, Inc., a cloud management platform company, which he has a lot of experience with from his time at CSC. 

At CSC, Mr. Pulier directed their creation and delivery of cloud offerings, helping clients of CSC increase productivity and lower costs. CSC is a worldwide leader in providing business with technology-based solutions and services. In the years Mr. Pulier was with CSC, they saw an appreciable increase in their stock valuation, and a refined and superior cloud services platform. CSC has long been in the business of helping companies solve big challenges from their headquarters in Falls Church, Virginia. It all started over 55 years ago, when 2 men, Roy Nutt and Fletcher Jones, pulled together $100 to finance their dream. Such was the genesis of CSC. One of their first major contracts was with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in 1961, and they have never looked back. In 1964 they became the first publicly traded software company in the United States, their stock has been trading for over 50 years now.

As young analysts working in the aeronautics field, Nutt and Jones created CSC based on providing computer manufacturers with programs meant to increase productivity. During those first 4 years CSC was in business, these innovators wrote software for every major U.S. computer manufacturer. Eventually they would become one of the largest computer services companies, with the United States federal government being their largest client. As the internet became omnipresent, all of the professional relationships CSC had already established simply became stronger. The new frontier would become IT management, securing systems from virus attacks and now delivering cloud services to their global clients. For lack of better words, CSC is here to stay. and the cloud that Mr. Pulier worked so diligently on developing and perfecting, will likely secure CSC’s future through to the next century.

Back Pain Sufferers Have an Exciting New Option

As many as 88% of Americans will suffer back pain at one point in their lives. Traditionally, those who have needed surgery to repair their spine issues have often faced daunting choices involving long recovery times and extended rehabilitative periods off work. But now back pain sufferers have another option. The AccuraScope procedure, performed by North American Spine, out of Dallas, Texas, is a minimally invasive procedure in which surgeons use a laser to make incisions only about a centimeter long. This advanced technique can be used to repair a wide range of spinal diseases. The procedure generally takes less than an hour. Patients can usually go home the same day and return to their jobs and normal lives in about a week.

Dr. Basem Abdelfattah, a pain specialist with North American Spine in Dallas, Texas appeared on WFAA’s Good Morning Texas to discuss this exciting new technology. Currently more than 8,000 people have benefitted from back and pain relief at the hands of specially trained surgeons. An astounding 82% have achieved success in ridding themselves of the effects of back pain. Patients have not needed to be Texans in order to take advantage of pain relief, movement restoration and ability to get back to their normal lives. Many patients have travelled from out of state and saved themselves thousands of dollars in potential medical treatment, by no longer needing medications, therapies or office visits.

What To Know Before Submitting Your First Piece On Wikipedia

Submitting articles and information to Wikipedia may appear to be easy enough; however, as with any other source there are standards one must adhere to when submitting. Believe it or not, Wikipedia’s standards are unexpectedly high. Considering the incredible audience Wikipedia has this should be no surprise and is the most likely reason people wish to have their work published on the site.
First and foremost, one must create an account in order to publish a Wikipedia article on the site. Secondly, it is important for contributors to decide whether they want to publish an article or a page. The difference is fairly simple, an article is part of the main encyclopedia and an article is always considered to be a page of the website. On the other hand, not all pages of the website are considered to be articles. After one has decided what they will be writing it is necessary to decide whether that piece will be a discussion or talk, just know these terms mean exactly the same thing, people just often refer to them as one or the other. Similarly, in the Wikipedia world reference and citation are synonymous with one another.
Another important topic to familiarize oneself with prior to submitting to Wikipedia is their expectations in terms of grammar and syntax. Absolutely everything on the site is written in sentence case, even the titles. Also, both British and United States’ spellings are included throughout the site, whichever company is more directly linked to a particular topic is the version used.
While these are only a few of the bits and pieces necessary to know when developing a Wikipedia piece, they are definitely the most fundamental. Any contributor will want to familiarize themselves with these terms, standards, and guidelines prior to submission.

The Beginning Of The End For Roaming Charges

Roaming charges might become a thing of the past thanks to the new EU (European Council) decision to ban them starting in 2017. In my opinion this is a great idea seeing as it takes no more effort on the providers end to send a text message or make a phone call from somewhere in the “roaming” area than it does in the non-roaming areas. The only difference is they have found a way to charge you just a little bit extra and get away with the hidden fees. However, in July of 2017 the EU will be ending roaming charges for all carriers in Europe. The roaming charges are already being lowered as of 2016, but a decision has been made to abolish them completely as of 2017. They have also stated here in a press release they will be safeguarding internet access for all of Europe. Their plans are to move away from ridiculous charges from cell phone providers and to allow for stable and affordable internet access all throughout Europe in such a manner as to remain fair to all parties involved. This example should be reviewed and potentially put into action for the American providers as well, but we will see in the near future. Many would say it would help the American customers quite a bit, however the cell phone and internet providers may not allow for it so easily.

Thanks to Dr. Daniel Amen for showing me this.

Use Your Eyes To Do Your Search

It is awesome to know that a person can do a search for their favorite items without having to even type in one word. Many people may have not heard of visual searches, but they are definitely the new way of doing searches that will soon be talked about all around the world. When it comes to doing a search for any item in particular, it can be difficult for a person to find exactly what they are looking for. A person may have found a pair of shoes that they like in a store, or a bracelet that they thought was nice, or they may have found a luxury chair that they would love to purchase, but they may not be able to find it right away by typing the information in using the common search methods.

A person may type in a few words in order to help the search engine find exactly what they are looking for, but in the end it might not be enough. They may have to page through quite a few pages of useless information until they can actually find the item that they are looking for. That is a waste of a person’s time, and it is also very annoying. It is great to know now that with visual search technology, a person no longer has to do any of those things. All that a person has to have is their electronic device, and a picture of the item that they desire.

A visual search is a way to find an item using an application, and an electronic device. When a person sees an item that they are interested in purchasing, all that they have to do is take a picture of that item and within no time the application will bring the item right up on the screen for their information. They can read all about the item and they have chosen and they can purchase that item. The persons information is all in the application already, so with a click of a button, the item is delivered to their home.

Slyce is the leading company when it comes to visual technology and visual search. They realize that a person wants to be able to get the item that they like without all of the fuss. They have made their Slyce application simple and fun to use. With just a few clicks of a button a person can have the item that they want right before their very eyes, and they can choose to make the purchase or not. The makers of Slyce realize the power of the eyes, and now they are helping each and every individual using their application to use that power to their advantage. It is great to know that a person no longer has to look through search engines and waste their time, with a visual search they can get the item that they want when they want it.

The Big Tech Move

Ghost is an open source blogging platform based in the United Kingdom. The company is planning on moving their company out of the United Kingdom in order to stay away from the country’s growing surveillance and weakening of privacy. The country is also trying to stifle the freedom of expression and since the company gets most of its traffic from blogging, the company is slated to lose a lot of its traffic. The founder of Ghost has released a statement in one of his blog posts telling his users the news about the big move. John Ono Lennon told his followers that he was moving the default location for the block company from the United Kingdom to a data center in Amsterdam. Amsterdam in the Netherlands is ranked second best place in the world for people to express themselves freely while using their freedom of press. The country is known for its historic liberal institutions karma farms designed to support the freedom of the press, and laws that defend individualist and their journalistic art. Much of the founders concern came about when government officials in the United Kingdom made plans to get rid of the Human Rights Act.


If they do that, United Kingdom citizens will lose their respect for their private and family life. The Netherlands has some of the most precedent sets of privacy laws in the free world. Ghost isn’t the first software company that has decided to move out of the United Kingdom. ReBalkan made plans to remove his software project out of the company after the government gave out detailed plans that included attacking individual’s privacy by collecting permit bulk data while surveilling their online activities. If the United Kingdom hopes to keep its tech companies at home, government officials should look to amending their current laws on privacy and surveillance. Ricardo Tosto sees that happening more and more.

A Strange Planet That Looks More Like a Comet Has Been Found

The search for exoplanets has yielded yet another first in planetary observations. Scientists have found a planet that looks more like a comet in the sense that it is trailing a long tail behind it. The planet is over 20 times bigger than the earth, and it is a gaseous world. The tail is considered to be a portion of the planet’s atmosphere that is continuously burning off at a rate of about a tenth of a percent every billion years. This rate is too slow to deplete its atmosphere but must make for one beautiful show with a big plume that astronomers estimate to be a few million miles long. It’s burning off because this planet is even closer to its star than Mercury is to our own sun.

Astronomers have confirmed about 1,000 exoplanets so far and the search continues. As our telescopes and instruments get better, we are able to learn more about these worlds in other solar systems. They give astronomers and planetary scientists far more to study than just the planets in our own solar system to enable an explosive increase in our understanding of planets and their interactions with stars. These discoveries have also confirmed for the first time in human history how relatively common solar systems are in the cosmos. While we have not found an “Earth 2” yet, at the rate the search is going and with more telescopes coming over the next decade, it is only a matter of time. We will just have to wait and see how it all plays out, just like those at Qnet. They check out Health Magazine on a regular basis for general information.

5G Connection to Debut at 2018 Winter Olympics

Technological accomplishments get celebrated all the time. The industry is constantly changing and evolving, and sometimes it movies at a pace that is difficult to keep up with. While many tech industry breakthroughs are thought to belong to the United States, one very big development will be making a high profile debut at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.

According to Android Community, KT Corp will be debuting the world’s first 5G wireless network connection capable of giving users access to data speeds of around 20 GBps. The breakthrough in South Korea should draw plenty of jaw dropping results from folks able to download entire movies in about ten seconds. With so much focus in the United States on 4G connection speeds, there has been little discussion from any of the major providers about upgrading the existing network let alone an actual debut of the technology.

Brad Reifler knows that the 5G revolution is still a few years away, but consumers will eventually receive blazing fast internet connections wirelessly, which could spell trouble for traditional wired connections. With network performance set to increase dramatically over the course of the transition, the actual cost of any type of 5G network on a traditional data plan also needs to be worked out. After all, companies are not going to simply give customers access to all that data and speed without having them subsidize the price in some way. Still, a lot of eyes will be on the technology in 2018.
