Comcast’s Growing Empire

The Memorial Day weekend was spent trying to settle in to my new apartment. I finally got connected to the Internet on Sunday. To think that I managed to survive with out being connected for over a week is relief too. While setting up my network, I found out that someone in my complex has willingly offered his/ her wireless connection to all residents. Sadly, it seems like the wireless router is not secured either.

On another note I also found out more about Comcast’s pending VoIP plans. Apparently the service is currently being tested out for a launch later this year, but they’re having trouble handling and guaranteeing uptime, especially when someone is making an emergency call.

As a checklist for my next change of address:

1) Cell Phone
2) Insurance (Auto/ Home)
3) Magazines
4) Work/ School
