As funny as attack ads can be, Verizon better watch it

Because they have some serious skeletons in their closet as well: such as a nasty little predilection towards hobbling devices (disabling bluetooth functionality, wifi, forcing their own crappy proprietary software onto phones, etc). As much as people like to think the grass will be greener on the Verizon side when they finally get the iPhone I'll believe it when I see it. I hate AT&T's horrible service with a passion. I'm just not convinced Verizon will be our savior.

With the comic often valid criticism of a competitor.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
