Basic Attention Token

Cant work out if I want to throw time and money at BAT or run away screaming as the path to "content micropayment monetization" is littered with good intentions and BAT may just be another BEANZ (lol someone somewhere has to have been keeping a running tally on investment burnt up with  FirstVirtual, Cybercoin, Millicent, Digicash, Internet Dollar, Pay2See, Blendle etc etc)

Having said that.....some serious money behind Basic Attention Token (and potentially wiping out Google AND Chrome AND AdExchangers) means has to be taken seriously.

Its funny....if I was responsible for monetization at BAT....I'd cozy up to China and suggest a law that says ALL WEB CONTENT must be viewed using this browser.....would be an instant distributed ledger for all web traffic as well as monetizing content providers, but hey that's just me.

Checkout -  for more I guess.

Google Home blew it

Wow -

How badly did Google Home blow it here.

I’d be shipping my device back to Google with a not so polite thanks but no thanks note on why its being returned.

FCC OK’s First Unlicensed LTE in 5 GHz

The Federal Communications Commission this morning announced that it had “just authorized the first LTE-U—LTE for unlicensed—devices in the 5 GHz band.” This was according to a tweet from @FCC on Twitter, and soon after, a rare blog post from Julius Knapp, chief of the FCC Office of Engineering & Technology.

I love this quote.....
"Coexist is hilarious. You can teach a canary and a cat to coexist, but you use up a lot of canaries".

So for anyone running office networks etc....having trouble with your 5ghz wifi range......might want to keep an eye out for a box that looks like this.

What you are supposed to do about it when you find it.....who knows, not my problem, call the FCC I guess.
