AT&T announces a new streaming service, surprises everyone

AT&T, if you haven't already heard, wants to buy Time Warner's broadcasting business. The government, on the other hand, doesn't seem to think that such a merger is a good idea, and it's brought an antitrust lawsuit against AT&T in an attempt to block the deal.

Senate aims to stop FCC from stripping internet assistance from the poor

Back in November of 2017 we took a look at a bit of legislation from the FCC that'd all but destroy the program called Lifeline.

US carriers want to handle your two-factor authentication

US carriers want to handle your two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication or 2FA is definitely a lot better than a naked password, but not all 2FA methods are created equal. SMS, which is actually the default many 2FA systems use, has been criticized for being more of a liability than a security option.
