I'm also confused why everyone keeps throwing around the word "monopoly." There is no monopoly right now nor will their every be irrespective of what the FCC does with net neutrality. You have the telephone company and the cable company - at the bare minimum that's 2 and therefore, by definitio, that's not a monopoly. That's about as much of a monopoly as iOS and Android. They make up about as much of the smartphone market as the major cable and telephone companies...
Clearly the raw data and the actual don't line up because AT&T has a stipulation on their 1Gbps internet service that if you're watching more than 2 HD streams at once then your internet speeds will start to slow so it's already happening since they are all in the same pipe. Yes, theoretically it should all work just fine as long as everyone pays for crazy higher internet than they have right now. It's like deregulating electricity - everyone thought it would be great...
So you mean how it's been operating for the last 20+ years and it's been a massive success so what's the natural progression on that? Yeah, let's legislate it! My reasoning has nothing to do with people buying minds - in fact I get two to three emails a day talking about how great net neutrality is but its not realizing the bad impact it will have in the future when internet TV ends up being against the law to prioritize those streams over some random internet download. I...
You don't need fiber to get good internet service. Time Warner rolled out 500 Mbps in Austin last year and the price was like $70 a month. Let's just do cable - coaxial cable has plenty of bandwidth capability for at least the next 20 years.
What? I live in the middle of the fourth largest metropolitan area in the entire country (DFW). I don't know where you live but clearly population density doesn't correlate to Internet speed...
What in the world are you talking about??? Did you mean to reply to me? What you're saying is pretty much the exact opposite of what I said. If you support net neutrality you are for corporate socialism, if you oppose regulating it you are for capitalism. The Internet has been a massive capitalism success, the speeds have increased all the while the average price for a connection have remained pretty much the same.Also, I pay for one step below the max Internet speed from...
So, wait, "let the free markets decide"??? If you support "net neutrality" you're categorically opposed to letting "the free markets decide." What people don't seem to get is that Charter already tried to throttle Netflix once and the FCC use EXISTING rules to stop them before they could actually do it. The FCC already has the power to keep companies from doing what they claim net neutrality is for. So the internet has done noting but get faster and faster with more...
Siri hasn't seen a decent update in years. I mean it can't even perform the simplest of tasks. If you say "what time does American airlines flight #___ arrive at DFW" and she comes back with "I didn't find any search results for "what time..." That's ridiculous, Apple needs to do quite bit more with it - I can't even ask it questions about stuff that's actually in my calendar! It's extremely basic and is in dire need of an overhaul.
Frankly I'm surprised that given all the leading edge materials the apple uses they didn't incorporate some advanced composite and/or fiber reinforced aluminum options. They've been out there for quite a while and provide pretty impressive results all while keeping virtually the same density as aluminum. Heck, even run of the mill 7475 T61 aluminum should help out quite a bit compared to a lot of vanilla aluminum a.
So what metric would you like to use their Skil? Or would just like to pretend that your POV trumps all the others and if you don't agree then any argument to the contrary is crap? Or are you of the persuasion that there's no point in gauging the masses at all? If that's your point then you're probably one who thinks Romney was more liked than Obama it's just that the metric available (voting) is flawed and stupid.    Also, AI is just as rife with trolls as MR...
