1. T-Mobile Fined for False Ringtones
Let’s talk about honesty, or in T-Mobile’s case, the lack of it. T-Mobile has been accused by the US government for using false ringtones in the absence of a cellular connection. This means when making a call to someone where there is limited cellular coverage, an illusion of an unanswered call will be set in place. Similar to a toddler’s plastic fo-phone. T-Mobile has agreed to pay a $40M fine to the FCC. Can you hear me now?
2. Southwest Airlines Explosion
Yesterday, Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after an engine exploded in midair. According to an eyewitness, shrapnel from the engine hit the window causing serious injuries. The imbalance of window to cabin pressure caused the death of a woman who was sucked/stuck in the window. Complete chaos broke out as passengers were frantically trying to help the woman, while others were writing notes to loved ones back home. The plane eventually landed safely and witnesses say the pilots did an excellent job of staying under control and keeping passengers informed.
