Tech at Sunday Morning: We now know why the MetroPCS / T-Mobile deal went through. What to do about Google Glass.
Had some work to do Friday night, so this this became Tech at Sunday Morning!
I still don’t see it passing the House after Mike Enzi’s winners and losers talk poisoned the well, but conservative governors want MFA passed for good reason. Ask Scott Walker.

I’m shocked to find out that after Anonymous declared war on Australia, that Australian censorship continues unabated. It’s almost like idiot Anarchist children don’t actually succeed at things. Which is why blackshirt scum continues to get sent to jail, where they belong. I’m also sure Barack Obama is quaking, quaking in his boots over the new Gitmo stuff by the Anontards.
