    Portuguese ISP Shows Us What the Net Looks like without Net Neutrality

    How the portuguese thing works: - You subscribe to a normal net package, say 5GB/month. With those 5GB you do whatever you want. - If you want, you subscribe to one or more of those "+ Smart Net" packages, say the Messaging one. Now, on top of your 5GB, you have 10GB for the apps listed there...

    Steam 2010 Revenue Nearly $1 Billion

    Greetings! Estimatives? :rolleyes: Considering that Portal was offered free for two weeks I highly suspect those numbers. Probably also mis-calculating the promotions prices. My guess is that they just multiplied an estimative of the number of games by the usual price. As for CoD BO...

    EU Says Microsoft Continues Abuse

    Greetings! Well, I intended to stay in this forum but after reading this, I will not bother. It seems as if HardOCP wants an all-USA membership. In the front page the hint is given to start the european bashing and so it begins in the forum. On topic, Microsoft was found guilty on both...

    EU Says Microsoft Continues Abuse

    Greetings! Airbus branch, not EADS, was the one that had 53% of the market, it no longer has. A dominant position, in itself, although not desirable, isnt illegal. Only when it is abused. You still havent showed examples of pricing discounts to leverage buyers into staying in the EADS family...

    Greetings! Because EADS is not in a dominat market position. Boeing/Lockheed offer competitive products to the ones provided by AEDS. Anyway, WTO organization is already looking into that market practices. And, if EC only goes after non-european based companies, why were ThyssenKrupp...

    EU Says Microsoft Continues Abuse

    You are comparing net values with one contribution of two different kinds of organizations with different objectives. If you really want to compare states with companies, you would have to compare net values of Microsofts operations in the EU space. The net value of a company can be seen by the...

    Is it normal that I can't get my E4300 to hit 2.9Ghz?

    Greetings! I used for the first time the Zalman ZM-STG1 paste. It came with the cooler. After using Artic Ceramique for years, I found the Zalman paste way easier to apply. All pastes should come with that brush applicator.

    And the chart is for net givers and takers. If you split Germanys value in West Germany and East Germany, the west would be a even greater net giver and the East would probably be a net taker. Samething for Spain. Regions like Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona would be net givers and regions like...
