Dual SIM
The dual SIM from Charter sounds really interesting. I didn't know Charter had a mobile service option. Simplifying connections sounds like a good thing.

Re: 5G TV
What about someone who wants to track every movement of their partner? Some paeents who don't trust their teenage children?

Basically, if companies would really give security the priority it deserves we would not hear from so many and so frequent security breaches.

Re: 5G TV
@Susan I agree. We need to think things through before doing them just because we can.

Re: 5G TV
Ariella: Yes. Who needs the NSA if your own family, partner, anyone basically can track your movements through a TV set. Everything has its pros and cons. Also, what about those CCTV cameras for smart homes with an application that alerts you if someone enters or exits your home. Yes, very useful to prevent burglary but also a useful device to track every movement of those living in the house. Here again, humans are not ready for the technology. It creates other sort of problems.

Re: 5G TV
@Ariella. I am in shock. I never thought about doing that. Why would a family member track you unless it is a child I don't see the benefit. That is truly scary. I am installing a VPN and security software on my phone tomorrow.

Re: 5G TV
@Susan Fourtan, I agree. Companies neglect security measures. Security measures are not a major focal point until a data breach or security breach occurs. That is tragic. It will take a tragic accident before companies realize how important security is and why it needs to be part of the implementation plan.

Elderly
This technology is great for the elderly, people who are not mobile or people with disabilities. It will allow them to feel empowered and self-sufficient. This will encourage this group of people to embrace technology and use it to make life easier.
