    AMD and NVIDIA Reveal Plans to Lower the Impact of Tariffs on Video Cards

    No one thinks that. Jesus christ. This will damage China by moving production away from them. They will remove their tariffs, or be damaged.... When they do remove their own tariffs, our nation benefits. Not a single person thinks what you imply. You seem to listen to the insane depiction...

    AMD and NVIDIA Reveal Plans to Lower the Impact of Tariffs on Video Cards

    China is already losing manufacturing because of this. How long do you think they can play this game? The results will be REAL "Free Trade", fair on both sides. If you want to "blame" that on us, then sure :)

    AMD and NVIDIA Reveal Plans to Lower the Impact of Tariffs on Video Cards

    And thus the world learned... If you dont participate in REAL "Free Trade" (fair on both sides), and the consequences will be that companies will move once the US makes things "fair", and the US will not suffer as the result... It is almost like someone knows what they are doing.

    Disney CEO Apologizes for "Star Wars": "You Can Expect Some Slowdown"

    To those that think it is the frequency of releases.... I point you to Marvel and their astounding success. These movies drip with agenda. Those that pretend to no see it can continue to act clueless as to why things like this flop, I suppose... I am certainly not about to waste my time...

    Wireless Carriers Begin Using Differentiation to Throttle Youtube and Netflix

    How do you not understand that the consumer already pays this, just on the end of the ISP... You pay for it one way or another. But we should let NetFlix go without paying their fair share, because they have extorted us by threatening a price hike? Seriously? People have completely consumed...

    Wireless Carriers Begin Using Differentiation to Throttle Youtube and Netflix

    You mean the exact same anti-trust laws that I referenced earlier and proved that NN wasnt actually needed? Yes. Its the over-reaching Title 2 regulations that allow Governments to determine who has a 'license' to provide internet that is the major free-market-sapping regulation here, among...

    You want the non-NetFlix using normal ISP user to pay the difference on the internet usage NetFlix doesnt pay for, rather than NetFlix and their users being burdened with that NetFlix-created cost...? All so you can save money on one end and be charged it on the other? ...... sigh.

    Yes you can have the 15Mbps downloads you paid for. It doesnt mean that I am paying enough for upload to you at 15Mbps. What you pay for to download, has nothing to do with what others pay to upload. The internet is a two way street, and you paying to download does not mean I can upload...

    Yes. It is those ISPs and their 10-15% profit margins that are the greedy over-reaching ones, not the internet companies and their 50-80% profit margins... *rolls eyes* You want to burden all ISP users with the costs of NetFlix's internet usage. I want to burden actual NetFlix users with...

    NetFlix maxed out Cogent and Level 3 and others connectivity, and thought that AT&T and Comcast should pay for it. What you arent understanding here is that the same logic of "If you charge NetFlix, the customers will have to pay for it" applies to the ISPs. If the ISPs need to upgrade...

    Wireless Carriers Begin Using Differentiation to Throttle Youtube and Netflix

    You have the backwards thinking on this. Send me a file. I pay to download, you pay to upload. It is not free for either of us just because the other one pays for their service. That is fair, as the internet is a two way street... Google and NetFlix are not exempt from that simply because they...

    So you are perfectly fine with paying the ISPs for Google/NetFlix's share of usage now? Werent you just upset about the possibility of paying more when you were not aware that you were already paying it? But now you are okay with it, because it hurts/helps the 'sides' you want? wtf. NN was...

    You already pay more for your ISP because NetFlix and Google dont pay their fair share. But you want to continue paying NetFlix/Google's half, because NetFlix/Google have extorted you by threatening to raise your rates if they have to pay their fair share...? Multi-Billion dollar profit...

    Those laws I referenced have been taking on "behemoths" for a long time. The argument that they wouldnt be able to take on Verizon or ATT, when they have in the past, is asinine. Electricity is not a two way street, so your analogy is failed. When you send a file to me, you are not exempt...

    The free market would eventually result in that, either by existing companies under cutting one another or by enabling competition to offer lower rates to break into markets that are over-charged.... So yes. But I guess you would rather be extorted by Google and NetFlix as they hold price hike...

    You PAID for your share. Google and NetFlix should PAY for their share, which they didnt because of prior abuse and NN. Thus you, the consumer, pay the entire cost of internet connectivity. If Google and NetFlix paid their share, then internet wouldnt be as expensive for you the consumer (and...

    Maybe Google and NetFlix and others should pay for their fair share of usage, so the burden doesnt fall entirely on the shoulders of the consumers and tax payers....? Why are we protecting Google and NetFlix simply because they have made threats to pass the costs onto the consumers? Isnt that...

    You pay more for your internet service because the costs of those services fall nearly ENTIRELY on the consumer. The costs fall nearly ENTIRELY on the consumer because content providers like NetFlix and YouTube game the system and dont pay for their fair share. What you are asking for...

    You, as the consumer, were already paying for the services that the large mammoth corporations were using and not paying for. Where do you think the cost of those service was falling? Do you think the ISPs were just eating the losses for years? Why do you think your individual internet and...

    Those laws are intentionally broad, so they can apply to a wide variety of commerce and trade. That is not something that makes them difficult to enforce across markets, it is something that makes them easy to enforce across markets. This is exactly why prior abuses have ended up on court, and...

    "In the spirit of overturning Net Neutrality" Dude. Educate yourself and quit spouting off nonsense talking point. Net Nuetrality was NEVER NEEDED. It was nothing more than a power grab allowing the Government to control the 'licensing' of ISPs, and allowing Google/NetFlix/Etc to dominate...

    Speedier Broadband Standards? Pai’s FCC Says 25Mbps Is Fast Enough

    How did these idiots conflate a "100mbps minimum standard" with "reaching more people"? They have nothing to do with each other. For all the 'outraged' people. It was your pro-NN companies that ended up being the censor queens, and let me know when the first death from no-NN takes place...

    Google’s Chief Futurist: Basic Income Will Spread Worldwide by the 2030s

    Apparently vastly more than you do. Comes with running a small business and having an education, I guess. Blaming economic capitalism for BS laws forcing consumerism, and suggesting a failed system as an alternative, is absolutely moronic.

    When the businesses and wealth leave the country, you can no longer fund this 'dependency' you have created, and thus millions of people starve. The whole purpose of UBI is to help the worse-off.... But ultimately the worse-off is exactly who ends up dying in the end. This is just like how the...

    So, what privacy coin(s) are you buying?

    Drug dealers have decided that fiat currency is the least traceable way to sell drugs. Has always been that way, and will always be that way.... The idea that crypto is somehow more prone to shady transactions is a ridiculous notion.
