The carrier announces 100 channels of live TV using its U-Verse app for smartphones and tablets.
Launched earlier this month for iOS devices, live streaming stations have now migrated to Android as well.

Google is also looking ahead to Facebook's F8 conference, by opening Google+ to everyone and making hangouts even more awesome. Plus, we imagine a world in which AT&T's ongoing efforts to push through the T-Mobile acquisition could actually result in increased competition and a smaller, less terrifying incarnation of AT&T itself. And then we crack ourselves up. Also, yeah, Fordo's still going.
The home phone is not dead, at least not yet. We discuss VOIP and other technologies that make fixed phones more useful, and save you money. With Maggie Reardon of CNET News. Bonus: Road tests!
Or perhaps we should call it OLPC. One laptop per criminal. The idea of letting prisoners use computers is good, but fraught with peril. Also, we start a new PSA campaign where Billy learns that e-mail can be dangerous. And that's one to grow on.
What? What's wrong with you people? We're talking about Netbooks. Dell has a new "Mini" Note, but it's a 12-inch laptop. So, the question is: what is going on in the Netbook world these days?
