T-Mobile One is garbage, and the EFF says it violates net neutrality

T-Mobile and its fancy new ’T-Mobile One’ plans, which promise unlimited LTE data, have come under fire from the EFF. The EFF’s senior staff technologist, Jeremy Gillula, tells The Daily Dot the EFF feels T-Mobile One is a threat to net neutrality: From what we’ve read thus far it seems like T-Mobile’s new plan to charge its customers extra to not throttle video runs directly afoul of the principle of net neutrality. He went on to note the FCC’s rules “explicitly said that ISPs can’t throttle traffic based on its type, or charge customers more in order to avoid discriminatory throttling.”…

23 Demi Lovato Quotes That Will Drag You Out of Your Darkest Moments

In today’s world of manufactured pop stars and overt industry pressure to be “the next [insert iconic musician’s name here],” Demi Lovato has always stood out as a breath of fresh air. She has a unique sound; a commanding, out-of-this-world voice; and a sense of style that practically screams, “I could not care less what you think about me.” Yes, she got her start on the Disney channel, as many of Hollywood’s hottest stars have, but it wasn’t too long before Demi’s personal trials and tribulations set her apart from the teenybopper crowd.

Her struggles with depression, eating disorders, and self-harm became widely known during the late 2000s, thanks to a much-publicized fight with a backup dancer and a rehab stay in November 2010. She was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder and moved into a sober-facility. Throughout her dark times, she has not only taken full responsibility for her actions and unsavory behavior but has also managed to stay positive and optimistic – her strength lies in her ability to encourage and uplift not only her die-hard fans but anyone who happens to hear one of her heartfelt, inspiring songs or read or watch any of her candid, motivating interviews.

Demi Lovato is a perfect example of someone who, despite experiencing her fair share of setbacks, can still rise above, accept her imperfections, and happily use her role as a celebrity to influence and help others who may be wading through the same emotional pitfalls. We’ve rounded up 23 of Demi’s honest, genuine, and wholeheartedly inspiring quotes that are sure to touch your heart, whether you’ve found yourself in a dark place or just need a quick dose of reassurance.

HGTV, LA and Dining Room Tables

I’ve been watching a lot of HGTV since coming to LA. My favorite shows are House Hunters and House Hunters International. There’s also another show I like to watch called For Rent, but only because it makes me angry.

When it comes to apartments/homes, I think living in New York for the past eleven years has made me bitter because there was this whiny broad on For Rent a few nights ago who was looking at a huge place—A HUGE PLACE—and was like, “There’s no place for a dining room table…”


I hated her.

Now there’s some stupid lady on House Hunters who wants a townhouse with a fireplace that she can turn on with a light switch. IT HAS TO BE A LIGHT SWITCH because she doesn’t want to bend down and flip a switch on the floor.


Anyway, I know my LA update is WAY overdue (and truth be told I wrote a long one last week but for some reason it didn’t save so I lost the whole thing and I was so angry that I just said, “Ah, f*ck it,” and closed the computer instead of rewriting) but to give you a quick update, I AM SO HAPPY HERE. I MEAN, I’M REALLY, REALLY HAPPY. And I think living here and watching HGTV—both of these things combined—has made me realize that New York was just beating me down. I mean, the fireplace lady—yes, she’s an idiot. But there’s nothing wrong with wanting a dining room table. Why did I get so mad at that lady?

Since being here, at least once a day I ask myself why I have lived in New York for so long. (It’s like I had Stockholm Syndrome or something.) CALIFORNIA IS AWESOME. It’s like the promised land. It’s sunny all the time and there are birds and flowers everywhere. I have space out here. I have a sofa on the patio out here. I HAVE A SOFA OUTSIDE. I haven’t seen one rat since I’ve been here. But hummingbirds? THEY ZIP BY MY HEAD EVERY DAY. I am so happy.

I’m supposed to go back to New York in November, but truth be told, I’m not sure I will.
