If you're a fan of interactive fiction, we've found a sequel to one of our all-time favorite interactive fiction games for iOS that follows a sassy, hard-headed, often-annoying, but still lovable protagonist. Today, we're talking about Lifeline: Silent Night.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has revealed plans to modernize an existing communications program to help low-income families have subsidized high-speed Internet access. Chairman Tom Wheeler shared the proposals to bring the FCC's Lifeline telecommunications subsidization program up to date by adding broadband to the phone-only scheme, as well as making sure the basic standards are in place for connections, in an attempt to minimize waste and costs by increasing competition and minimizing the potential for defrauding the program.
A new act was introduced to the House of Representatives yesterday seeks to update the "Lifeline" FCC program. The intent of the legislation is to expand the Lifeline program, and offer recipients the option of discounted telephone, mobile, and now, internet broadband access. The FCC chairman-supported bill was introduced on April 24 by representatives Doris Matsui (D-CA), Henry Waxman (D-CA), and Anne Eshoo (D-CA).
