Google agrees to T-Mobile’s “Binge On” terms because they’re “opt-out”

Google agrees to T-Mobile’s “Binge On” terms because they’re “opt-out”

T-Mobile's "Binge On" service allows more video apps to stream media to devices without using up the customer's data allotment. While for the end customer this may seem like a really great deal, (who doesn't like so-called free data?), it continues to hold the door open for internet services to charge different amounts of money for different internet services. True Net Neutrality requires that all internet be treated the same - here that's just not true.

Creators have long expressed discontent about mistaken YouTube takedowns, something the company has itself addressed in various ways over time.

But now YouTube is going to make that process a bit easier for you.

On February 10, YouTube will be releasing a new online video series and three full-length films featuring some of the most famous characters and groups on YouTube.

Going to YouTube for your day's audio selection is nothing new, and neither is jumping through hoops to make sure the video loops -- you're either forced to use a third-party service that loops the video automatically, or you have to hunt down one of those excessively long videos that stretch on for an entire work shift.

Sony’s “Let’s Play” trademark attempt foiled by another company

Let's Plays have been around for some time now. If you're not familiar, a Let's Play is where someone records themselves playing a game, adds commentary, and uploads it to someplace like YouTube. These can be a great way to learn about a game, or just entertain yourself for a couple of hours. And since it's a term that's not company or brand-specific, Sony thought it was about time that they went ahead and trademarked the term “Let's Play.”
