"In todays connected world, there is just no good reason people should feel stuck with a Wi-Fi-only tablet," said Jason Young, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing for T-Mobile. "Our Tablet Freedom effort is a full-on assault against those restrictions that keep tablet owners from experiencing life beyond the Wi-Fi zone - with a beautiful, unleashed tablet like the Galaxy Note 10.1."

The Galaxy Note 10.1 will be available for immediate purchase online and in participating retail stores nationwide beginning June 4th.  For those stuck in a contract with an old carrier, the Un-carrier will pay every penny of your early termination fee (ETF) when you make the switch and upgrade to a new tablet. Simply bring in your tablet to get an instant credit based on its value - which you can apply to your purchase of any tablet, smartphone or accessories. When you get the ETF bill from your old carrier, bring or mail it in and T-Mobile will pay the balance in full.

    UPS orders 14 Boeing 747 jumbo jets to carry air freight

    The Boeing 747 revolutionized air travel and ushered in the era of jumbo jets back in the 1970s, but these days it is often used to carry packages, not people, and its future is uncertain. The hump-backed behemoth got a boost Thursday, however, when UPS announced it has ordered 14 Boeing 747-8 cargo freighters and took an option for another 14. Neither Boeing nor UPS disclosed terms of the sale.

    T-Mobile trolls Verizon exclusive with half-off Google Pixel offer

    Exclusive, exschmoosive. T-Mobile really wants you to know that Verizon's "exclusive" to sell the red-hot Google Pixel phone isn't an exclusive at all. "Don't let the 'exclusive' advertisements fool you, the Pixel phone is tested and proven to be fantastic on our lightning fast network, and we want to help you get the best of both worlds!" said the carrier's CEO John Legere in a statement. To back up his words the company has a new limited-time offer: bring in an unlocked Pixel purchased from Verizon, Google or another vendor, sign up for T-Mobile's "One" plan, and get up to $325 cash back, equivalent to half the price of an unlocked 32GB Pixel. The money doesn't arrive in a lump sum, but over

    By Deborah M. Todd CUPERTINO, Calif. (Reuters) - Apple Inc unveiled a revamped MacBook Pro on Thursday, adding a fingerprint reader, replacing function keys with a small touch screen and raising prices by several hundred dollars. The first redesign in several years is a sign Apple still sees a role for the product that launched the company, even though its iPhone has become the flagship product. Ben Bajarin, an analyst at Creative Strategies, described the changes as "important incremental upgrades" which would convince people with old Macs to trade up to the smaller, faster model.

    Market Has Already Decided Election's Outcome

    I'm growing so tired of the recent trading-range action that I was hoping a bit too much that the negative reaction to Apple (AAPL) earnings and the weak action in small-caps might trigger some downside momentum. What happened instead is that the indices bounced right back and are barely unchanged. (Apple is part of TheStreet's Action Alerts PLUS portfolio.)  Breadth is still dicey at 2,600 gainers to 3,900 decliners and the small-caps indices are hanging on by their fingertips to support, but the S&P 500 is showing just a minor loss. It still isn't a very good setup for buying, but the story of this market has been -- and still is -- a lack of momentum in either direction. One question we were

    UPS orders Boeing 747s in $5.3bn deal

    Courier firm United Parcel Service has ordered 14 Boeing 747s in a deal worth $5.3bn (£4.4bn) at list prices. The order could breathe new life into an aircraft Boeing has said it may cancel. The firm warned in June that its iconic 'Jumbo Jet" plane faced falling orders and pricing pressures. The purchase significantly adds to Boeing's order book when it and rival Airbus have struggled to sell wide-body aircraft. The UPS order, which includes an option for 14 more 747s, reflects growing demand for air freight, chief executive David Abney said. "We have the demand and these aircraft will allow us to handle the demand on a very scheduled basis," he said. Slow sales of the 747-8, the latest version

One problem with it, Pfau explains, is that it is meant for for a 30-year retirement.

    Better Buy Now: Williams Companies Inc vs. Energy Transfer Equity LP -- The Motley Fool

    For more than a year Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE) wanted nothing more than to buy control of Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) to bolster its energy infrastructure empire. However, the deepening of the energy market downturn, combined with leverage concerns and tax issues, changed its mind. That debacle caused a significant slump in the value of both companies, which is enticing many investors to consider adding one of them to their portfolio. That said, while both companies have their merits, one stands as the better choice right now for long-term investors.

For instance, the mortgage might be paid off, but how bad are the property taxes—and how generous are the property-tax breaks for seniors? Are Social Security benefits taxed? What about other forms of retirement income—including IRAs and pensions? Does the state impose its own estate tax that might subtract from your legacy? The answers might just determine which side of the state border you’ll settle on in retirement.

    Realty Income Misses on Earnings (O)

    Realty Income Corporation (O) disappointed investors with its latest earnings call. The poor results were announced after shares gave up some of their gains for the year. The company reported a 7.1% year-over-year increase in revenues, which rose to $277.2 million in the third quarter. That was slightly above analysts’ $264.8 million revenue expectations. Higher revenues did not help the company’s funds from operations, which were 1 cent worse than expectations at 72 cents per share. A decline in occupancy rates may have been the culprit in the weak results; occupancy fell from 99.3% a year ago to 98.8% by the end of the third quarter.

The memo, authored by Douglas Band, was one of thousands of documents leaked to the whistleblower organization WikiLeaks after what federal officials say was a hack of the personal email account of John Podesta, the chair of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, by a group with ties to the Russian government.
