T-Mobile fined $40 million because it played fake ringtones and lies to rural users about call quality

Unlike the Uncarrier.

The FCC has fined T-Mobile $ 40 million for faking connections to rural customers in Wisconsin, according to a release. It also inserted fake ring tones into those calls to make it seem like they were connecting and failing, even though no one was on the other end of the call to pick up.

It sure looks like Google is about to kill Inbox

The age of AI-powered Google is causing its email clients to merge.

It has been almost exactly three years since Google made its new email client available to the whole world.

New ways to browse.

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 battery ‘issues’ are all about Apple

Samsung makes more than just phones and the Exynos 9810 Galaxy S9 is a €950 beta test.

By now you’ve probably heard that the Exynos-powered international version of the Samsung Galaxy S9 doesn’t have the greatest battery life.
