AT&T buys T-Mobile USA

It's make sense when AT&T buys T-Mobile USA. Both using GSM technology. Verizon will not sit out. To maintain their position as number 1 wireless company in USA, I guess Verizon will acquire Sprint. Verizon and Sprint using CDMA technology. But how much? what the deal? Sprint has one problem. Its debt.

Open Source Personal Financial Accounting Software

For years I used Intuit Quicken to keep track my checking, stock trading,... in Microsoft Windows PC. Now, I used Ubuntu Linux most of the time. Thus I'm going to find an Open Source software similar as Intuit Quicken in Microsoft Windows. GnuCash, Grisbi or Homebank, which one is good? Which one can import my stuff from Quicken and export tax in TXF format? Let Google to find out other's comments and download to experience by myself

Time for Free Text Message

Few days ago, I received couple spam text messages (SMS). I logged into my wireless account to place a block. Next, I filed a complaint at Why I must paid for unwanted text messages from others? Why the wireless companies like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile,... charge the sender for the fee like the post office charge them for mailing or phone company bill them for cold calling?

With the free text message offered by Google Voice, TextPlus, TextNow and TextFree, why we need to pay to receive a text message?

It's time for wireless phone companies stop billing customers for receiving text messages (SMS) or no charge for both send and receive text messages.
