SunRocket Jacked Me and I'm PISSED OFF!!! Class Action?

As many of you know, SunRocket suddenly ceased all operations today and left 200,000 customers (myself included) high and dry.

4 or 5 months ago, I shelled out $200 for a plan that was supposed to last 14 MONTHS. I am absolutely livid that they would just take my money and run. They did not even provide 50% of the service they were supposed to provide and the service they did provide sucked really bad.

I am and have been a vonage, packet 8, skype and customer, and I have never, ever seen such a shady and blatant disregard for customers and their rights. HOW CAN THEY JUST SEND THE EMAIL BELOW, EXPECT US TO DO NOTHING AND LET THEM TAKE OUR CASH??????

Any telecom class action attorneys reading this, please contact me via a post on this blog, please organize a SunRocket Class Action Lawsuit asap!!!

Example of Fox News Twisting the Facts in GOP Debate

In this article that I screen-capped from the Fox News website, you can see that Fox News is staying true to their credo of twisting, spinning and distorting the facts. If you saw this clip from the GOP Debate:

Ron Paul vs Giuliani on the Root Causes of Terrorism

You can see, hear and understand very clearly that Ron Paul was arguing the point that the terrorists are reacting to our interventionist policies in their countries in the middle-east. But of course, in a desperate and obvious effort to discredit Ron Paul and give some cheap brownie points to Giuliani, they have published this huge and glaring "mistake" which says that Ron Paul suggested we invited the attacks because of our non-interventionist policies.

This is a HUGE mistake, it is exactly the opposite of what he said, and a very telling tactic by Fox News.

Here is what happened after the debate:

Three Things Digg Can Do to Beat The AACS Licensing Authority

1. Enlist the help of forward-thinking organizations, The EFF, ACLU, and This isn't just your fight, their are dozens of organizations battling the ill-effects of the DMCA every day... take it to the Supreme Court as a Free Speech issue.

2. Team up with other websites being targeted, don't let them divide and conquer! Getting together with the legal teams of other sites being sued will help you all share best strategies and offset the huge legal bills that are undoubtedly coming.

3. Most importantly, request financial assistance from your users. When Kevin Rose posted "...You've made it clear. You'd rather see Digg go down fighting than bow down to a bigger company. We hear you, and effective immediately we won't delete stories or comments containing the code and will deal with whatever the consequences might be. If we lose, then what the hell, at least we died trying." THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I THINK WE ALL WANTED TO HEAR.

So I am ready to put my money where my mouth is and stick it to those fuckers at the AACS LA. Just show me where the "Donate to Digg's David vs. Goliath Legal Battle" button is on the site and I'm ready to throw down some paypal cash...

Like I said yesterday...this day we fight!

This Day We Fight! 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0

My brothers, I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come when the courage of Men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship--but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of Men comes crashing down--but it is not this day. This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!

Target Sells Out of Wii's In 6 Minutes

I have a Wii which everyone in my family has very much enjoyed, and a bunch of my aunts and uncles had each asked if I could buy them one if I saw any available.

So I heard about Target holding Wii's for today, Sunday, January 21st, 2007. It was 8:06 AM this morning when I called the first Target store in the Los Angeles area. This is how the guy answered the phone:

"Thank you for calling Target where we have already sold out of the Nintendo Wii, what can help you with today?"

I started laughing... every other Target in the Los Angeles area is the same, NO MORE WII'S! Since the Wii has obviously acheived a high level of demand in the mainstream mass market, it will be a long time until it's easily available. I guess next time there is a shipment people will have to camp out!
