    FCC Eyes Tax on Internet Service

    I swear i am not some liberal socialist, but... the idea is that by getting broadband to backwater areas, we raise the common good and that is better for everyone. Doesn't mean you have to agree that it is worth it, and frankly I am not sure I do. But- that's the reasoning. Personally, I...

    FCC Eyes Tax on Internet Service

    This. Seriously- this. People really, really need to read the Court opinions on this issue. Then form your opinions- it's not a terribly difficult read.

    FCC Eyes Tax on Internet Service

    Let the free market combined with anti-trust laws take care of this. In other words, when the government gets the hell out of the way, we end up with things like Sprint confirming they will still have unlimted 3g and 4g with the iphone 5, or Google investing money to brign fiber- the fastest...

    11 Year Old Racks Up $1,750 Xbox Live Bill

    Look, I undersand the sentiment o wanting blame the mother, but this is complete bullshit. The kid is only 11, and it really is unfair for M$ to allow children to rack up charges through XBOX live. Sure we are all geniuses, but the average kid at that age just cannot be held to the standard of...

    SSD Mandatory for Next-Gen Games?

    I think an order from Microsoft for 10 million of them at a certain price point and capacity would speed price drops along nicely. For example, if they went to Samsung, and said, we are prepared to purchase 10 million 512GB SSd drives from you with xyz specs, for the next xbox, and we need them...

    Stuxnet: Cyber Missile That Crippled Iran's Nuke Program

    You're damn right they've been denied that right! Jew-hating holocaust-denying douchebags ought to consider the stuxnet worm a gift from god that might prevent them from being obliterated.

    Field of view/ number of displays efefinity question

    For surround gaming- as in, screens literally surrounding you, how many would you need to properly simulate field of view without stretching and visual artifacts? And how would you configure each display's field of view angle to properly display things in a 360 degree display? I am thinking...

    Keeping part of a page from reloading if it is the same across multiple pages

    What I am trying to achieve is to have the page refresh faster. Ideally, the only thing that would be reloaded on the pages is the data that is displayed- none of the framework, the layout, the colors, etc would reload. I guess if changes are made to the pages then they would have to reload...

    Verizon Bills Family $18k For Cell Phone Use

    Verizon Bills Family $18k For Cell Phone Use

    Verizon is not forcing the family to do anything. Verizon is choosing to allow this to ruin their business practices and affect cell phone billing practices in general. This is not a fucking arrest warrant. It is a bill, an illegitimate one at that.
