(erocsid)Back in 2012, Verizon Wireless announced a marketing deal with several of the country’s largest cable operators that would let these companies sell cable/Internet/wireless bundles. We warned at the time that this would give Verizon even more reason to halt expansion of its costly FiOS network, as the company stood to make more money from the wireless business than it would from the TV/Internet service.
Sure, here in the states we’ve got people calling 9-1-1 over missing hash browns, and folks threatening to use a sword if they don’t get free tacos, but over in France, they’ve got an angry customer who used his axe on a McDonald’s all because he got cold fries at the drive-thru.
The incident occurred early Sunday morning in the suburbs of Paris, where a 26-year-old customer was unhappy with the restaurant’s response to his complaints about the frigid frites.
He reportedly got out of his van, brandishing an axe that he then used to shatter the drive-thru window.
Just to put a fine point on it, the customer then tossed his axe into the restaurant, which is not the proper way to escalate one’s complaint.
A McDonald’s employee was received some cuts to the face from the flying, shattered glass, but did not go to the hospital.
The customer attempted to flee, presumably without getting the hot fries he so wanted, but he was taken into custody by police.

182,900,000,000 emails. 182.9 billion. That’s more than 25 emails per every human mind on the planet. And that’s just what we send in one day (PDF). Given the crazy amount of emails that are sent and received every day, it’s no wonder that this electronic communication has become too hard to handle for so many of us.
One of the biggest limitations of email is sending files. Almost every email provider imposes limits on the size of files that can be sent through their service, which is fine for sending documents and spreadsheets, but when you need to send something really large, that’s when issues arise. Enter Filemail, an awesome service that allows you to send massive files up to 30 gigabytes on a free account (with no size restriction on a premium account) to anyone.
Flying doesn’t have to be a drag. Airline travel can put the hurt on your wallet and that’s reason enough to hate flying (though there are a few ways you can save money on airline tickets). Perhaps, the second worst aspect of flying is that you waste so much time checking in, waiting, flying, etc.
