Comcast Will Be Comcast
Jokes about the impossibility of getting Comcast to cut the cord have become so legion that they even invade the comic strips. Fortunately, according to an Associated Press story, Ryan Block had the presence of mind to record his prolonged and frustrating conversation and then upload the recording to SoundCloud. By turning the affair into a public display, he got Comcast to admit that they were "embarrassed." The Associated Press article even claims that Comcast will call Block to apologize. I suspect that, even as I write this, there are odds-takers negotiating bets as to whether or not that telephone call will end up being about persuading Block to keep his Comcast service.
