Over the past six months or so the buzz of AT&T possibly taking over T-Mobile through a buyout has been off the charts. Some have agreed with this attempted buyout and others oppose it. Initially, I agreed with the potential massive-merger because in my mind (as a T-Mobile customer) I would get better coverage once AT&T attained the T-Mobile satellites. But now that the merger was blocked and reading other articles. I have formed a new opinion regarding the buyout.
Im glad I get to keep the same T-Mobile I know and love. AT&T would force higher rates upon me that I don’t think any T-Mobile customer wants to inherit. One reason why people love the current T-Mobile is because of the amazing deals they have along with some pretty good coverage and data speeds. By keeping both T-Mobile and AT&T on the market, it will force both companies to push themselves and create better products for the consumers.
AT&T’s several press releases stated how they were disappointed with the decision to block the merger. They went on to state how the merger would have helped improve AT&T’s coverage, service, and data speeds. Really AT&T? The only reason you wanted to buyout T-Mobile was to knock out one more competitor. I recommend you use that money to just improve your current network (frankly it sucks). Everyone I know under AT&T complains frequently regarding the coverage/service. It’s not like your prices are cheap either. They are about the price of Verizon’s ridiculous prices. How can you charge so much for your service but yet be labeled as the worst carrier?
Our cell-phones are a combination of several technologies. We took computers, cameras, GPS systems, phones, and game consoles and combined them all into one. Personally, I would rather have our currently technology than a flying car any day. We have made our lives and difficult tasks much easier to accomplish.
Current phones boast up to dual-core 1GHz processors, giving you blazingly fast speeds. If you look at how fast technology is currently expanding, one can only imagine the future of our phones. Say five-years from now, what will our phones be like? In my opinion, we will start seeing phones shy away from hand-held devices. Potentially we could see phones integrated into wrist-wear. Something like the ‘Omni-Tool’ seen in the Mass Effect series. As well, it wouldn’t surprise me if phones became part of our clothing or even our glasses.
But how powerful will these devices be? How fast technology is advancing, one could assume our current day computers will be outperformed by our phones in two-to-three years. How about our gaming consoles like the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3? It’s already been said these consoles are outdated and phones are slowly taking over the gaming market. But just how fast are the graphical powers of our phones expanding? By five-years from now, I think it’s safe to say something like your little iPhone or Android device would destroy consoles.
Many years from now its up in the air as to what direction cell-phones will be headed. It could all be inserted within our bodies with integrated computer chips. But that’s a massively wild assumption. People once assumed we would have flying cars by now. I think each generation just sees the future in their own unique way.
It’s been a year since I’ve truly held a job, and it’s really taken a toll on me. Having to really on others to afford my cell-phone, car, and gas is really demeaning. It has made me feel like a failure. All the stress that has come with wondering if I can keep my car or even my phone bothers day-in and day-out. Viewers watching my videos have even said they can see im unhappy or angry. And they were 100% correct. After going back and watching some recent videos. My happiness has disappeared. But thankfully, I feel like things are starting to change. Over the past two-days my attitude has started to change 180 degrees. Thursday I have my final interview with an amazing company, and I feel very confident as the interview approaches. Friday I have an interview to be a Personal Assistant, and Saturday I have an interview with a new local tech-company. 3 interviews over 3 days is amazing in my eyes. I went months without any and now im receiving multiple. I look forward to seeing what one of these potential jobs could hold for me. Come back to this website and my YouTube channel for updates on how things are going.
