Guest mode doesn't even have to be a new account. It just needs to be a setting where a switch button says "require a password to launch all apps except".. And there's a list of exemptions. That's almost there already in the General->Restrictions prefs but not quite.It's a very useful use case.
And sell Apple stock because iTunes, Beat music and the future Apple TV are dead if net neutrality is not enforced.
Jesus the American right is totally barking. Nut jobs. A sensible decision by a president of use to all Internet users and you fantasise about the commies or Obama taking over the Internet. You know just like declaring the telephone lines a public utility means the government controls them. Not.Obamacare my ass. Nothing to do with this but spittle flecked rant needs to mention it because Cruz dog whistled it.Well good luck. Back Ted and his plan to replace Netflix with...
Not only did I not move the goal posts that definition of a "public utility" is exactly what was being argued about. The telephone system ( largely the same back end as the Internet ) is privately owned but classified as a public utility.
A monopoly is the dominant or only player in a market. Your own private dictionary not withstanding.
As defined in law a "public utility" can be privately held but subject to restrictions to stop local monopolistic practices. That's exactly what is under debate here.http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_utility
I take it to mean the providers - ISPs and carriers - can't throttle site A to promote site B. Which could be their site or some company that pays them off. Now imagine Obama and the democrats were bought off by Verizon et al. And were opposing net neutrality. What would you support then?As a non American I think Osama is fairly hopeless. However this is a good move.
You've got your own personal dictionary there and I won't be arguing with it.
The technology it depends upon is largely government or university originated ( ARPANET, tcp/ip, HTML Etc). Not that it matters - the Internet runs on the same infrastructure in most cases to the phone system. Fibre and copper. And that's a public utility.Do you really want your provider to throttle Apple, Spotify or Netflix for their own Streaming solutions just because you don't like a politician?
Unless you are posting during work - in which case get back to work and stop stealing your employers time or your own - your time isn't worth anything.
