Re: Didn't Know
The government is adding its touch to the APP world.  The data research on the FCC broadband speed sound good.  However, is it just another way to dip into our privacy.  It's no secret that the creation of the flat screen tv and the eradication of the old TV's was just a way to see what the government wants to see at anytime.  I would be very cautious when using any APPs created by the government.
