Hey Buzz Crew,
I just wanted to thank you and fellow Buzztowner Bradley From Can(t)ada for the Google+ invite. Thank you for posting his email offer and him for living up to it. Thanks to Bradley, I FINALLY have access to Google+. Thanks to you both and I will be sharing the wealth as well. If you want, you can tell your viewers to checkout my blog today for details on how they too can get an invite to Google+. My blog is at http://www.TheTechTipster.com and today I will provide details on how they can get an invite.

Dear Buzz Crew, Comcast does not care about current customers, only gaining new ones. 2 Years ago, I hit their 250GB cap. They blacklisted me immediately and refused to give me back my internet service. (1 Strike and out!) They would not explain what caused my service to hit the limit, and wanted me to beg them to get my service back. I left them and waited 3 months to get U-Verse. Now U-Verse has the same cap! I went back to Comcast, because they offered me a 300GB cap for a cheaper price. If I hit this cap again, I will end up going to Comcast business, because for a minimum of $60 a month, they offer no bandwidth caps whatsoever.
Just a quick thought about Google+. It doesn’t seem like anyone has really picked up on its best feature yet: no Justin Bieber. With the age restriction of 18 years to join, we’ve got a social network that is beautifully Bieber free. Even a majority of his fan base can’t join! Thanks Google. And thanks BOL.
