EXCLUSIVE Kevin Hart has had his share of problems -- although he dodged a bullet in this one. One of the venues on his comedy tour is being sued by a diabetic woman who claims she got kicked out of his show because she dared to use her cell phone to check her blood sugar. Tonya Torosian claims she was at the Viejas Arena in San Diego last July when she began to feel ill even before the show began. She suspected the cause was low blood sugar, so she opened up a cell phone app which monitors blood sugar levels. The venue has signs posted prohibiting the use of cell phones, but this she says was a medical necessity. Torosian says she was confronted by security guards and she tried explaining she was a diabetic who needed to monitor her blood sugar, but that fell on deaf ears.

Torosian says they were then ejected from the venue and never got a refund. Torosian … [Read more...] about Kevin Hart Comedy Venue Sued by Diabetic Woman Over Cell Phone Use

Aleanna Siacon Detroit Free Press Published 4:51 PM EST Dec 10, 2018 Turns out Google isn't just a popular search engine. The tech company has been laying the groundwork to crack the market for cellular networks since 2015 — and the tech giant's most promising endeavor, the Google Fi cell phone service, might be worth a look. The first iteration of Google Fi, called Project Fi, initially was an invite-only system for the Google Nexus phone, according to Forbes. However, it's since expanded. On Nov. 28, Google announced the plan now works for most Android devices and iPhones (in beta) — they also officially took on the name Google Fi. Some features depend on the type of device used, so for users looking for the "full Google Fi experience" the company recommended using a phone designed to work with Fi: the Pixel 3, Moto G6 and others available on their website. Nonetheless, since the company announced the expansion to other phones, … [Read more...] about Google’s Fi cell phone plan gets rave reviews from users

Susan Tompor Detroit Free Press Published 2:37 p.m. UTC Jul 5, 2018 Billions of robocalls already are working on the last nerve of consumers each and every month. So, no one wants to hear a warning from consumer watchdogs that yet another "tsunami of unwanted and unstoppable" robocalls and texts to cell phones could be on the horizon. But complex debates involving the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 are ongoing and robocalls are a hot-button issue. Consumer groups argue that a change in the rules could make it too easy for banks, student loan servicers and others to send even more unwanted texts and robocalls to our cell phones. Right now, businesses face tougher limits for calling our cell phones than our landlines and many limits could go away if the Federal Communications Commission issues new rules.
