Elsewhere Online: AT&T's New TOS: Caps, Fewer Legal Rights, Forced U-Verse Upgrade - And a Provision Forcing You to be Polite About it All | DSLReports.com, ISP Information

If you have ever thought about switching away from AT&T broadband Internet services, now may be the time to put your plans in action. Harkening back to the old monopolistic days of Ma Bell, AT&T's new terms of service seem to be saying "Like it or lump it"...and oh, and by the way, if you complain about it too loudly, we'll cut you off anyway.

The fact that it is AT&T's own horrible policies, and even worse service, that has angered its customers seems to be ignored.

Look for alternatives for your Internet service today. Vote with your wallet and your feet.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
