AT&T is the first carrier to say it has a "5G" network, which is complete bullshit

AT&T is the first carrier to say it has a "5G" network, which is complete bullshit

I didn't think it would be AT&T, but I knew we could count on one of America's lovely carriers to open the door to the complete and utter ruination of any agreed-upon definition of "5G." Today, AT&T announced a bunch of new 4G LTE features (which is what they are) were being rolled out to its network, and it's given these features a name: 5G Evolution.

Now, the reason 5G has a qualifier is simple: because this isn't 5G. It'd be like taking the inline 4-cylinder engine out of your car, replacing it with a V6, but saying that you're now running a V8 Evolution, because hey, you're closer to a V8 than you were before.

The Galaxy S8 will have no external carrier branding, even on Verizon and AT&T

No matter how you feel about Samsung and the Galaxy S8/S8 Plus, you have to admit they're really, really pretty phones. The curved display and sleek frame are incredibly well-designed compared to most other devices, and the GS8 will stand out in one other unexpected way—there's no carrier branding. Even Verizon and AT&T have been persuaded not to stamp their logos all over the phones.

AT&T adds free HBO to its Unlimited Plus wireless plan

AT&T adds free HBO to its Unlimited Plus wireless plan

AT&T was rightly hammered for its first attempt to respond to the new wave of unlimited plans a few months ago—it simply wasn't competitive. After a few tweaks, AT&T's offering is in-line with what's offered by other carriers. Now, AT&T is sweetening the deal with free HBO for those subscribing to its more expensive unlimited plan.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ U.S. pricing, availability, and offers

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are finally official, after months of leaks, speculation, and rumors. The phone seems like more than just another iterative step for good ol' Sammy, what with the shift to softkeys for navigation (finally), the new screen aspect ratio, and so on. But as exciting as all of this is, I am certain that those of you who are interested in either phone will want to know where, when, and for how much you can pick one up. Luckily, we've compiled a nice list for you.
