DDoS Attack And Why AT&T Really Wants Time Warner

Modern Life Network


We breakdown the recent distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack that hit users and the Internet last week. The attack blocked access to several major media and social media sites for a sustained period. We discuss what caused it and how our home internet-connected products assisted in the attack. Big news out of the telecommunications and media industry is the bid from AT&T to purchase Time Warner. The purchase includes HBO, HBO Now, CNN, TNT, TBS, Warner Bros, Cartoon Network, and 10% of Hulu. This is a power and growth move on AT&T's part and there are good reasons why they want these services. iPhone 7 availability is quite limited at this time, but how long would you have to wait to get yours?
