The Federal Trade Commission has announced a $50,000 prize for anyone who can put an end to illegal robocalls. Most of the automated phone messages you get trying to sell you anything from health insurance to car wax are against the law, but they're routed through so many locations/countries before they get to you, locating the source and putting a stop to them has proven tricky.

So, in X-Prize fashion, the FTC has put the challenge out to the public. If you think you've got a workable solution, check out the details of the challenge, rules and expiration date here - http://robocall.challenge.gov

It may seem odd that a liquor store owner would open a home brewing shop, and in the same shopping center even. But, having been a home brewer, I can tell you that home brewing does not cannibalize liquor store sales. On the contrary, I acquired a taste for craft brews. Now, when I go to the liquor store for beer, I'm looking for unique, new, tasty, and higher priced beers. Home brewing is fun, but it also takes time. A craft brew enthusiast can't just wait two weeks to enjoy a cold one. Also craft brews from the liquor store can give you some great ideas for new twists on your own brews. So for a liquor store that promotes itself as having a broad selection, including a "new beer cave", the pairing actually makes good sense.

South Liquor Mart owner Mike Mikolatis opened 56 Ring Tobacco & Home Brew earlier this year in the Bally Shopping Center at 1733 S. Academy Blvd in Colorado Springs. They carry a full range of home brew supplies of course, for both beer and winemaking, and can cater to everyone from beginners to expert. They also carry premium cigars and accessories and have a tobacco lounge with a large screen TV. 

They can offer advice and assistance to home brewers and winemakers, in person or over the phone. You can also become a member and use their facilities to brew your masterpieces (everything you need except the bottles and caps). Members have access to after-hours brewing every evening except Tuesday. They also get regular discounts and other perks depending on the membership level you choose.

You can reach 56 Ring Tobacco and Home Brew at 719-375-3058. They're open Monday from 10am to 6pm, closed Tuesday, Wednesday through Friday from 10am to 6pm and Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 3pm.

Press Release (Aguilar PR)

AT&T has activated a new 4G mobile Internet cell site in Colorado Springs that will enhance coverage for area residents and businesses and provide speeds up to four times faster than 3G.

The new site location near the intersection of Centennial Boulevard and Vindicator Drive will improve wireless coverage in the following areas: north along Centennial toward Woodmen Rd, south along Centennial toward 30th St. and southwest along Flying W Ranch Rd.

"We need continued investment in Colorado broadband networks and policies that encourage investment.  If our state and local communities are to remain competitive, we must provide businesses and citizens with the best technology, no matter where they are located and create a framework for private investment to get there," said Senator Bill Cadman.

"These investments in smart networks enhance economic growth and stimulate jobs," said Bill Soards, President-AT&T Colorado. "We commend the work of Senator Cadman for supporting policies that create a positive economic environment, one that provides opportunities for companies like AT&T to continue to invest aggressively in Colorado ."

AT&T is the only U.S. service provider to deploy two compatible 4G technologies to deliver more speed to more smartphone customers. Even as AT&T continues to expand its 4G LTE coverage in 2012 and 2013, customers can get 4G speeds outside of 4G LTE areas on our 4G HSPA+ network,  unlike competitors, where customers fall back to slower 3G technologies when outside of LTE coverage.
