Re: Pet watching can be stressful!
Working from home is the right answer for sure! My job is fully online and I could work from home but my employer doesn't allow it. I hope Don gets the opportunity to use broadband correctly :)

Re: Pet watching can be stressful!
Don, seems to me the broadband is being used in the wrong direction. Instead of using broadband to watch the house from the office, why not just stay home and use the broadband to reach the office from home?

Re: Pet watching can be stressful!
Not being a pet owner, I can't identify with the folks who check in on the dogs daily, but it must be kind of like watching the latch key kids from a distance I would guess. An interesting bit of research they by Comcast which probably opens up some more marketing ideas.

German tenant and broadband
I had a tenant who had recently been transferred from Germany by his employer, and he bemoaned the state of broadband in the U.S., especially what he felt was the slow implementation of broadband personal financial services, whatever he meant by that. Personally, I am worried about what will happen here when we finally have cities in the skies. How are we going to run all those cables up there?

Secret Lives of Pets
Pets have no privacy anymore! I think it would be nice to check in from time to time on pets at home. You can see if they've made a mess of something and get home to handle it before stains and smells set in.

Lost Jobs
127,000 positions are a lot of lost jobs. AT&T laid off a lot of people at 11,780. Hope it doesn't affect my customer service. I feel for those who are not unemployed.

Re: Pet watching can be stressful!
With 8 cats and a dog, I can't really go away very much. The Comcast Xfinity pet filter camera would definitely set my mind at ease if I do get away on a much-needed vacation. Had I had this camera a few years ago when I simply went overnight for Christmas Eve to my sister's house only to return to a cat with a badly injured paw, I may have known what happened. To this day it's a mystery. And, of course, the dog and cats NEVER misbehave when we go out.

Re: Pet watching can be stressful!
That's interesting, I have heard that dogs sleep 80% of the time that you are gone. If I didn't work from home I would totally want a camera because my two-year-old pup is a naughty boy.

Big win for Huawei... in Russia
The contract that Huawei signed with Russia's largest telco to provide 5G equipment seemed like the biggest news and a win for Huawei. I'm not sure it's enough to offset the loss of US-business like licensing Android and hardware suppliers like Intel or Corning... but it's something.
