Time Warner Cable to begin metering out the GeeBee's . . .

TWC is rolling out pay-per-gig restrictions on their cable Internet customers this summer. (Sometimes I wish we weren't such an obvious choice for "test marketing.") Supposedly if you have the Price Lock Guarantee, you won't be affected.

Check out Statesman tech writer Omar Gallaga's blog from I'm linking to the April 01 posts because that's where a lot of the more pressing questions are answered (or conspicuously not at all.) You can click on the links at the top of the blog for newer updates.

Does anyone know what ATT U-verse's position is on all this? I'm thinking of making the switch anyway.

Northwest Austin property named in Fair Housing and Americans with Disabilities Act-related lawsuit

As Texas Real Estate agents we're educated on the leasing and sales end of the Fair Housing Act and how to look out for potential violations. But it was news to me when I found out that the act could be cited when suing for issues relating to construction. Check this out from Austin Business Journal regarding a large complex on Parmer Lane, Jefferson Center.

West Campus condos in trouble?

I'm hearing some fellow agents chatting about possible pricing drops on West Campus condos because of the cheaper new housing offered by the new private dorms. Anyone have anything to add?
