The company's hotspot at the Dulles International Airport in Virginia was found to be using ad-injecting code to deliver more advertisements to users while they browse the web. Stanford lawyer and computer scientist Jonathan Mayer made the discovery, detailing the tactic on his blog Web Policy.

The 128GB Galaxy Note 5 Samsung forgot to mention [UPDATE]

The largest of the Galaxy Note 5 models with 128GB of internal storage appeared to be missing from initial release information earlier today. Samsung's listings for each individual model of the device through their pre-order portal tells a different story. What Samsung's pre-order portal suggests is that not only IS there a 128GB model, it's being prepared for all four of the top mobile data carriers in the United States.

AT&T says throttling your data is harmless

AT&T says throttling your data is harmless

Last month AT&T was hit with a $100 million fine from the FCC due to its erstwhile data throttling plan (which hadn’t won it any favors with subscribers).

AT&T doesn’t offer unlimited data plans any longer, and it has made it clear it doesn’t want the remaining grandfathered plans to remain. As such, the wireless carrier is now pushing back against the FCC.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active Review

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active Review

Today we review the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active from AT&T. This device takes the innards of the Galaxy S6, expanding the exterior bits to make a device that's resistant to the elements as well as shock. You can drop this one. While the original Galaxy "Active" device wasn't quite as resistant to the one truest danger of all, dropping the darned thing, here we've been given a reprieve.
