This x1000. I can't tell you how much better traveling internationally is with T-Mobile. I always have service and it's useful for maps, trip advisor, foursquare, google, email access, etc. It's not super fast as it's 2G, but it totally gets the job done. I'm surprised none of the others have tried to match this.
Overall, the service/connectivity is great as well in the US. They were also the first with wifi calling. Highly recommend to anyone.
Why? This doesn't make logical sense. It's a large company with enough resources. I get that the Mac is a lower priority, but why put your name on anything this bad. It's pretty clear how you should approach this:
a) We're going to do this and we'll do it right. It might be a smaller audience, but if we release this product under our name it will be awesome.
b) This isn't a priority, so we're not going to ship something half baked and outsource it. Here's a link to TweetDeck and TweetBot.
It's possible that someone signed a bad contract. I've seen terrible products worked on or released because certain rights were sold in ways they shouldn't have been sold. That's not an excuse as it should still never happen. But it can go down that way.
Sounds like a case where the incentives for the company don't line up with the incentives for an individual manager. The responsible person might have suffered greatly (or at least thought they would) if they had just declared that much money to be a lesson learned on a bad idea, even if that might have been best for Twitter.
Hey, you should talk to Andres Barreto, I'll intro - email@example.com He runs a small seed fund and connects Colombian engineers with US startups. It's a great program and I've hired from it before.
Ps- ignore any discouraging comments. Fight hard and you can get what you want. Best of luck
Not true at all - HuffPo has grown, Adapt.tv is a big win, 5Min was the foundation for video (they're top 3 now), Weblogs Inc setup content division, etc. I'm sure there are some bad deals done, but they've had a great track record on buying+integrating.
No, if they wanted to cash out, they could sell more. Go search home screen on Twitter, you'll see it's installed by as many young kids as Facebook (in some cases more). Monetization isn't easy here, but it is totally feasible with an audience like this.
What are the best resources to learn more about mesh networking? I've been fascinated with it and trying to soak up as much information as possible.
I'm trying to understand what advances there have been in reduction of speed over multi hop networks. That's the biggest issue I see, is that people want high speeds, but mesh networks at a large scale might make that difficult. Multi-frequency radios can only go so far.
