In a move that everyone wished for but no one expected HBO will offer HBO Go in 2015 without a cable subscription.

This is a huge and I mean huge step in the end of traditional cable as we know it. HBO has a large enough following to do serious damage to cable companies who insist on remaining in the Stone Age.

Nothing makes me happier than competition in the market and now with HBO Go cutting the cord we will see other big names following. The time when I can officially cancel cable is fast approaching. I will have HBO Go, Fox, and WWE Network.

Of course with Netflix and Amazon Prime serving movies all I need is ESPN or the NFL to go digital and cable will certainly be a thing of the past. In the future our children won’t even understand the concept of cable. Time is running out.

Avoid this app at all costs.

The company behind Whisper, the social media app that promises users anonymity and claims to be the “the safest place on the internet”, is tracking the location of its users, including some who have specifically asked not to be followed.

The practice of monitoring the whereabouts of Whisper users – including those who have expressly opted out of geolocation services – will alarm users, who are encouraged to disclose intimate details about their private and professional lives.

The service has been turning over data to the Department of Defense all along. Disgusting.
