T-Mobile wants to eliminate hiring condition T-Mobile lodged a stronger objection to the hiring condition, saying the state order "should be modified to eliminate the mandate for T-Mobile to increase the number of full-time T-Mobile employees." T-Mobile said that it "took the unprecedented step of voluntarily committing that there would be at least the same number of T-Mobile employees in California three years after the transaction's closing as Sprint, Assurance Wireless, and T-Mobile had as of the date of the transaction's closing." But the CPUC instead issued a "mandate that T-Mobile must increase, within three years of the transaction's closing, its net full-time jobs in California by a thousand jobs more than the current full-time jobs of Sprint, Assurance Wireless, and T-Mobile," the petition said. … [Read more...] about T-Mobile already trying to get out of merger conditions on 5G and hiring

This helped us evaluate color accuracy, peak brightness, contrast ratios, color gamut, luminance uniformity, color uniformity, and more with hard data instead of personal opinions. That said, there are spectrophotometers and other high-end equipment we did not have access to that can give more pinpoint readings. Our test results still get at the gist of each monitor’s pros and cons—if a panel has poor contrast or … [Read more...] about Guidemaster: Finding the best gaming monitors you can buy
The O8B doesn't quite have the processing smarts of the others on this list, sadly – making for some frame rate issues, and occasional problems playing or switching to different HDR formats like Dolby Vision.
