Yahoo won’t let Community die, no matter how hard Dan Harmon tries to kill it

Unfortunately, as a promotion for Community, the live episode of Harmontown turns out to be terrible. Harmontown is one of those shambolic, off-the-top-of-our-heads type of celebrity-man podcasts where the entire show is about how terrible it is. Harmon is self-effacing, but never self-effacing enough, and his co-hosts can do little but watch as he free-associates for hours at a time. At one point, he freestyles a lengthy rap about (his words) “fucking your mom,” and it’s not even his worst musical performance of the evening. – Casey Newton, The Verge

Be very careful when you sign up for one of Time Warner Cable’s two-year promotions

Recently, a Time Warner Cable customer who had signed up for one of the company’s two-year offers was surprised to see their cable bill jump by $15 per month after just one year. After making multiple calls to Time Warner Cable to ask why their bill had increased from the rate they thought that they’d locked in for two years, they were told that TWC reserved the right to increase their rates after the first year of the promotion. […] How can Time Warner Cable get away with this? Mostly because the company never offered the customer a two-year contract that would have locked them into a set rate for a given amount of time. Instead, the company gave them a two-year promotion that they agreed to over the phone. – Brad Reed,BGR
