google BRIDGED voice calls still an “eternal” commitment LNP rights trampled no port-out for you mere citizen

Filed under: CIO, COM, SIP, wantonly bizarre — Tags: — Seth Wisely @ 22:44

forget your FCC LNP rights: google awaits a heavy bitchslapping

“Currently, it’s not possible to remove Google Voice from your Google Account, but we’re working on making this option available.”

http://www.google.com/support/voice/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=154895

^^ be sure to vote “no” as often as you change IP address

oh joy!

I spent a few hours gaming the number system after the google acquisition of GrandWhatsit was obviously branded and await the opportunity to exercise my RIGHTS as a consumer to take my awesome numbers to a provider I can trust [not to datamine my calls].

Google does not qualify as an exception in ANY cases outlined by the FCC LNP rules in FCC 07-188 or FCC 09-41

FCC 07-188

http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/NumberPortability/

APPENDIX B, Title 47 update

§ 52.34 Obligations regarding local number porting to and from interconnected VoIP providers.
(a) An interconnected VoIP provider must facilitate an end-user customer’s valid number portability request, as it is defined in this subpart, either to or from a telecommunications carrier or another interconnected VoIP provider.  “Facilitate” is defined as the interconnected VoIP providers’ affirmative legal obligation to take all steps necessary to initiate or allow a port-in or port-out itself or through the telecommunications carriers, if any, that it relies on to obtain numbering resources, subject to a valid port request, without unreasonable delay or unreasonable procedures that have the effect of delaying or denying porting of the NANP-based telephone number.

(b) An interconnected VoIP provider may not enter into any agreement that would prohibit an end-user customer from porting between interconnected VoIP providers, or to or from a telecommunications
carrier.

Seems like google TOS is a teeny bit invalid regarding LNP.  Please do correct if I am wrong.

http://www.google.com/googlevoice/legal-notices.html

As between the parties, Google shall retain all right, title and interest to the telephone numbers used in connection with or provided as part of the Services.

Pay to be datamined by google? No Way

http://www.google.com/googlevoice/legal-notices.html

We will not use any of your content for any purpose except to provide you with the Service

Yeah, right.  “”provide service” — please refer to myriad other google TOS to unvaguify claim.  gmail is powered by text datamining alledgedly on the fly.  voice service is a wee bit more expensive than email, but no datamining?  Would you like to buy a voice bridge?  oh, wait, that’s “free” too.

HDCP helps to reduce piracy? yeah right. When the consumer cannot use his media in the way he wants he looks to other sources. HDCP pushes more casual users to piracy for media liberty in the home

HDMI whitepaper, p9 “content owner benefits”

Although HDMI does not require
copy protection, the standard allows for it andódue to government regulations and
the demands of trade associations and content providersómost devices
implementing HDMI do offer HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection) which
operates transparently to consumers in HDMI devices. As a result, HDMI helps
reduce piracy
and ensures that the highest quality content can be delivered to as
wide an audience as possible. In addition, should new business models for content
distribution arise that require new copy protection standards, the HDMI specification
is flexible enough to support those changes. Content owners, therefore, can feel
confident that their works will be widely distributed and yet needn’t overly concern
themselves with content theft via HDMI connections. Many Hollywood studios
recognize this capability and have moved forward with their plans to develop and
release high-definition digital content because of this comfort with the HDMI standard.

Why attack the encryption per se?  What’s the weakest link in the HDCP stream?  The flow in the rendering device after the HDCP black magic.  No working knowledge of HDCP Faustian secrets required.  Tinker away liberty engineers.

Irfanview Add Canvas feature awesome stroke images vastly faster

Filed under: overview — Tags: — Seth Wisely @ 00:19

IrfanView 4.23 adds a feature I had not noticed until today by happenstance.  Possibly only a hotkey as opposed to a feature.

Two fold use of Shift+V in IrfanView MUCH more convenient and MUCH faster than firing up photoshop to similarly expand canvas.

convert default to layer, expand canvas, stroke border of layer [or layer fx], save an PNG24 with transparency

Too bad IrfanView cannot add transparent canvas AFAIK.

Feb 16 2010, Verizon Wireless and Skype join forces to create a global mobile calling community

make and receive unlimited Skype-to-Skype voice calls to any Skype user around the globe on America’s most reliable wireless network [Until verizon pushes a PRL that makes using  your handset in your house nearly impossible.. thankfully: NAM2]

delightfully: purely theoretical.  needs testing. need more free time. d’oh

“free” skype calls will incur verizon’s thirty dollar a month upgrade penalty for “smart” phones.

me: how can I opt out of your $30/mo upgrade penalty for services I shall NEVER use?
verizon: the $30/mo fee is for your convenience
me: how is paying your $30/mo upgrade penalty for something I shall NEVER use convenient for ME?
verizon: if you didn’t have the unlimited data plan you would have to pay fees per megabyte that would quickly become excessive
me: great how do I get that?
verzion: get what?
me: the option to be billed excessively per megabyte?
verizon: now we have the unlimited data plan for thirty dollars a month; otherwise you would have to pay for megabyte usage
me: alright how do I pay for megabyte usage?
verizon: you won’t have to with our convenient unlimited data package
me: I don’t want to pay your thirty dollars a month upgrade penalty for something I won’t EVER be using.  I would rather pay for megabyte usage… especially as I’ll be using zero megabytes every month.  How much will it cost to use ZERO megabytes of data a month?
verizon: if you weren’t using data you would still have the protection of the $30/mo unlimited data plan
[actual verizon “reasoning”]
verizon: in case someone else picked up your phone and connected to the internet…..

repeat ad nasuem

transcripts of  “verizon’s thirty dollar a month upgrade penalty” soon…  voip call record.. and for eternal enjoyment verizon inanity hosted on archive.org

and also provides important limitations? current white house staff limited grasp of English, zero honor

“and also”?  no.  The Constitution exist TO limit the powers of government; to protect we the people FROM government abuses.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/Our-Government/The-Constitution

.

and also the president is a Marxist by admission; FDR would be beyond ecstatic.

The senate’s NEEDLESS introduction prior to the preamble *cough* *cough* seems to better grasp the Constitution than the white house

http://www.senate.gov/civics/constitution_item/constitution.htm

We The People” – affirm that the government of the United States exists to serve its citizens.  The supremacy of the people

Government exists to serve the people.  Also missing some key concepts

One can NOT have one’s will usurped: EVER.  One must consent to be governed.

The senate’s understand is awry

the Constitution has evolved

FALSE! The Constitution HAS NOT evolved.

.

The Senate errantly applies revisionist history tactics of liberalism via self evidently self refuting subjective reality.  A running commentary in English on the Constitution, itself not surprisingly written in English, is wholly unnecessary ESPECIALLY on a federal site.
