Google Confirms They’re In Talks, But Isn’t Naming Names
Hoping to do something a little more progressive than their two largest disruption-fearing competitors, in 2009 Sprint started offering closer integration with Google Voice
, allowing users to turn their handset number into a Google Voice number. In contrast, companies that felt threatened by the idea of losing key handset functionality like voicemail control to a competitor (AT&T at one point tried to argue Google Voice was mean to nuns
) have been a little more standoffish. Now Sprint’s role as the only carrier to offer such tight integration is coming to an and, with Google claiming they’re in talks with several unnamed carriers
. While no carriers are named it seems fairly likely that Verizon is among the carriers Google is talking to, since they’ve already become BFFs
after collectively working to prevent wireless neutrality rules.
REMEMBER THIS DOG?
He’s doing so much better!
We posted this picture a couple months ago – of John Unger, calming his arthritic dog Schoep to sleep in Lake Superior. After the picture went viral, John received so much support – from animal
lovers as far away as Saudi Arabia – that he was able to afford to give Schoep the treatment he needed. Schoep is feeling much better now, thanks to medication and laser treatments for his arthritis. His quality of life has improved greatly & he’ll be with John for a little while longer. To make things even BETTER: John received so many donations that he’s started the Schoep Legacy Foundation – to assist low-income families with aging pets.
Way to pay it forward!

GET READY TO BE HUMBLED!
We’re just a spec in the vast universe! This is the deepest picture ever taken into space. NASA unveiled this image which offers the “deepest ever view of the universe.” Dubbed Extreme Deep Field, or XDF for short,
the image combines 10 years of photographs taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and depicts around 5,500 galaxies, some of them too faint and distant to be previously seen.
It’s mind boggling to think about considering most of us only travel in a 20-mile radius of our homes. There’s a lot of stuff out there…. (cue the Star Trek theme…)
