Google is preparing to be a wireless carrier

For years, Google has been assembling just about all the pieces it needs to become a mobile provider.
The search giant already makes the most-used mobile software on the planet, it designs and sells phones online, and it has become an Internet service provider with its Google Fiber initiative. It even has its own VoIP phone service called Google Voice, which allows people to get a Google phone number and call people through Gmail or Hangouts over Wi-Fi.
The missing link has been the cell towers needed to build out a nationwide network.
Rather than spending the tens of billions of dollars it would cost to create a wireless network, Google reportedly will carry its service over Sprint (S) and T-Mobile's (TMUS) networks. Google declined to comment. Google is expected to pay those carriers just $2 per gigabyte, according to Macquarie Securities analyst Kevin Smithen. That means Google could choose to provide super-cheap service that gives Verizon (VZ, Tech30) and AT&T (T, Tech30) something to worry about.

Native American Day, one more day Calif courts will be closed

AB 1973 is "an act to amend Section 6700 of the Government Code, relating to holidays". What changed? As of January 1, 2015, the fourth Friday in September, known as "Native American Day," is added to the list of "holidays in this state".
Also,  Government Code 6700 establishes it as a state holiday but not all state holidays are "judicial holidays" or "non-court days," e.g., "September 9th, known as 'Admissions Day'" and "Good Friday" from 12 noon until 3 p.m.  are not judicial holidays. Why? See CCP 135.

How NOT to ask for a judgment quote

Every day, I email emails saying "I want a quote for this judgment" or something like that, and the creditor has either CC'd 100 companies, or CC only themselves, meaning there is no way to know how many other companies got their email. I see no reason to respond, as I figure some other less experienced person will respond.

How to Block Pop ups in Firefox

How to Block Pop ups in Firefox

Pop-ups and ads were driving me crazy. It took me a while to figure out how to fix it on Firefox on my Mac. (This probably will work the same on Windows computers, etc.) Open a new Firefox page, so it shows you the fox curled up. Disable any Add-ons you do not need. Also, disable any Plug-Ins you  suspect are not good.
