Yes, they have been promising 1 Gigabit Internet for over a year but I have yet to see it.
As far as I am concerned TDS is but a poor and very bad JOKE. I am staying with MetroCast 105 Mbps Broadband Internet service. It might be 10x times slower than 1 Gigabit BUT it is stable, up 98% of the time and the bandwidth rarely if ever fluctuates. I think we all know that that will not be the case with TDS. I would hate to rely on Internet, TV and voice on TDS.

That FBI, With Help From ‘Cellebrite’, Could Compromise Apple iPhone Encryption Is Bad News For The World.
The media, alas, continues to misrepresent exactly what the issue was to begin with and how and what the FBI (and Israeli ‘Cellebrite’) did to get to the encrypted data.
They did NOT break encryption.
That is pretty hard to do.
What they did was DISABLE the ‘Wrong Password’
You have all seen it. Enter the wrong password to say an online bank or credit card account three times and you are LOCKED OUT. You have to call in and start providing valid credentials and explanations. Well what the FBI and Cellebrite did was DISABLE this wrong password retry safeguard. Then they could keep on trying MILLIONS of passwords a second until they eventually got the one that unlocked the data.
NOT GOOD NEWS.
That a 3rd party was able to do this disabling is downright bloody scary.

While this, from what I can see, does not qualify as a beach,
unless it was by the river, and, moreover, it is now defunct
— I felt I should document it for posterity and completeness.

It was a dreary, dank and damp day.
