This might be news to some, but not everyone knows what 4G LTE means.
Not everyone thinks in terms of footprints or tethering either. Especially if they're over 16.
So "Saturday Night Live" decided to target Verizon's enthusiasm for terminology in ads offering 4G LTE. Whatever that is. (The video may not be visible should you live across oceans the other side of the U.S.)
Big week ahead, fellow cheapskates! And I'm kicking it off with my annual guest appearance on CNET's Holiday Help Desk, which airs live today at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET.
