I've installed ad-blockers on many computers...
...and I'm reasonably certain most of the people using these couldn't tell if, or which ad blockers are installed. So I'd say the ad-blocking levels might very well be a lot higher than reported.

In the universe where I have unlimited calling anyway, and callers don't need to worry about how much it will cost them to call a number. Is it local? Long distance? Landline or mobile? Same network or another? Who cares, it all costs the same, i.e. it's already been paid for. $40 for unlimited everything is what I pay. Or in UK terms, about 1 MB of data and three and a half MMS.
Of the 100 most recent entries on my eBay feedback page, buyers and sellers, two members have a user name that identifies gender. All the rest have names like gadgetshop, racers2015, or thedoodahcollector.
Somebody started with a foregone conclusion and went from there with this study.
Tried on my 1320 for a few days (as opposed to just a few hours last time I checked it out). Overall, I like what I'm seeing. The new phone app, the added functionality in Cortana, the calculator and the music player, all looking very promising. But I do need my call+SMS filters, quiet hours and weather on the glance screen. Also, I need battery life and a phone that doesn't heat up like crazy. And the My Account app from T-Mobile US (and a few other apps) didn't work anymore. Lenses aren't supported yet either, and I really can't live without custom ring and text tones. But there's nice progress and I think once RTM time comes around, it will all be fixed, right? Right? For now, I went back to 8.1.
...to disable Apple Music as soon as it popped up in iTunes. There's only so much entertainment one can take, especially since we're talking about a service here that will analyze your tastes and preferences, and then will force-feed you Taylor Swift.
Oh! Is that what I'm supposed to do with it? Here I am downloading stuff willy-nilly, convert it with handbrake, drop it into iTunes and then watch it on the big TV screen. It also does Netflix and Hulu streaming, but the video quality is a lot better streaming it from the XBox One. Oh, and the free HBO Go activation I found somewhere.
That's because these "internet cafés" aren't places where one would go and do some research on Wikipedia for instance or checks one's e-mail, but rather are very obviously fronts for illegal gambling for cash prizes. In the front section of the business, the discerning customer may purloin such essential computer hardware as CRT monitors, parallel port ZIP drives, ISA modems, or PS2 mices. In the backrooms, some redneck's mother-in-law is feeding her social security check into 30 year old arcade game for the chance to win tokens. Which in turn can be turned into cash.
These places /call/ themselves "internet cafés" and computer stores, but really are just fronts for illegal gambling and probably money laundering.
A, T-Mobile US is currently in the process of refarming their 3G/4G network to the 1900 Mhz band which will allow, for instance, an unlocked iPhone 3GS to connect to the net at 3G speeds.
See airportal.de for updates on the refarming process. Big cities like Dallas and Houston for instance are getting just slathered in 3G coverage as we speak
B, some people just want to have a nice phone and not pay an arm and a leg in monthly fees for the privilege.
Author must be holding the cloud wrong, because iCloud actually does work. Funny how he didn't manage to come up with an actual example or usage case to demonstrate how it isn't working.
In comparison to former systems like Palm's HotSync and Microsoft's ActiveSync? Holy hell, does it work, and how.
