T-Mobile just updated its prepaid data plans a month ago, and now it’s the corporate crowd’s turn for a shakeup. The new (and quite frankly daunting) array of primarily business-minded plans is based around whether or not you’d rather face throttling or overage fees if you push past a set cap. Overage Free plans for subsidized (Classic) and unsubsidized (Value) devices are largely self-explanatory and slow down that bandwidth cap-busting hotspot, modem or tablet until the next month. The High-speed plan range costs lower as a matter of course, but you’ll be dinged to the order of two to 10 cents for every megabyte over the limit. That said, there’s some bargains to be had versus other carriers, especially with the 5GB and 10GB plans. Provided you’re happy with T-Mobile’s coverage, it may be worth signing up to eke out a few extra dollars in savings every month.
When it comes to supergroups, The Traveling Wilbury’s haven’t got anything on these guys. Bright House, Cablevision, Comcast, Cox and Time Warner are teaming up to share around 50,000 metro WiFi hotspots for their customers, under the banner of “CableWiFi.” New York City and the Tri-State area, Los Angeles, Tampa, Orlando and Philadelphia will be among the first to get the service, with growth to more cities pledged for the future. If nothing else, it should be a good way to stick it to the man when he snatches your unlimited data plan.

Let’s add this to the pile of “Android taking over the world” data. A five-month study on ad impressions by Millennial Media has shown Android rapidly overtaking iOS in the US, to the point where just last month they were tied for smartphone ad market share.
I actually wouldn’t be surprised if this indicates a larger majority by Android, since (though all I have is anecdotal evidence) iOS users are bigger on using the web on their phones. That could just be my own bias, though.

This is pretty insane. A woman in Atlanta was the victim of a burglary, during which she was tied to her bed as the robber made off with her valuables and car (2009 Acura TSX, BGU-8496 if you see it call the po). Her laptop was on her bed, and she managed to get it open with her feet, hit CTRL-ALT-DEL to wake it up, and launch her IM client, on which she was able to raise her boyfriend in the conversation seen above.
PSA! Open your laptop right now and check if you’d be able to do the same thing! Seriously, you never know what might happen. Might want to check your significant others, too.
