Then, after you develop your app, there aren't any users to buy it.
We would get the fastest and most robust internet connections available on the planet. We would get TV and phone service bundled on one wire. We would get lower monthly bills.
And unicorns would fly out of your butt.
roads, water, electricity, bridges: all were started by government and that was the major funder.
Do you actually, really believe there were no roads and bridges before government built them? No-one anywhere thought 'hey, we could put some logs over that river and build a bridge and then we could get to the other side without wading through the water' until a government bureaucrat came along and suggested it to them?
You really believe that?
No wonder the world is in such a mess.
If netflix is providing content to comcast users, then why is netflix paying comcast?
Because, as I understand it, Netflix is on a different ISP, and traffic from that ISP into Comcast is overwhelminging in the Neftlix to Comcast direction, so the usual peering arrangements based on similar levels of traffic in both directions make no financial sense.
No-one wants to be forced to use Sinclair Microdrives
Besides which, there were far less classic games for the QL than the Spectrum.
No, the real problem was Greece lying its way into the Euro. Of course, everyone of clue knew they were lying at the time, but Germany and France were so desperate to make the Euro a 'success' that they had no interest in refusing anyone who wanted to join.
The average user sits down and in a few minutes is back to doing what they want on a Win8 system.
Sorry, you'll have to wait a moment while I get up off the floor, where that insanely stupid statement just put me.
The average Windows user I know has no freaking clue how to do anything in Window 8, and has to go ask the 'experts', who have no freaking clue either because they don't want anything to do with that abomination. Most average users couldn't even start Notepad in Window 8 within 'a few minutes', let alone do anything useful.
In the final analysis, the Microsoft era was a massive failure of free market capitalism that left us all driving Trabants while thinking they were the best that we could have.
Ah, yes. The government grants copyright monopolies to software companies, and that's a 'failure of free market capitalism'.
That totally makes total sense.
"I know he used to beat me, but this time he's really changed."
If the problems with security in iOS, and the fragmentation/security issues with Android continue, people will go back to the 'doze.
Yeah. 'Cause it's not like Windows has any fragmentation and security issues.
It IS what they did to kill the Linux netbooks.
I thought they gave Windows away free to kill Linux netbooks?
If Intel starts packaging cheap Windows with their CPUs then this would be a major boon to the home PC builder demographic.
This is Window 8 they're talking about. Most people would pay more to NOT get a copy with their CPU.
Do you have any hard data on how many people are actually purchasing high speed internet specifically for Netflix?
The only reasons I need megabit Internet are downloading games from Steam and GOG, and watching videos. Games, I don't much care if I have to leave the PC running overnight while it downloads, but streaming videos are either high enough bandwidth to play, or they're not, and will stutter and buffer or drop to low quality.
So I suspect many people are buyig high-speed Internet just to watch videos, be that Netflix, Youtube, or pirate sites.
From what I understand, peering agreements are typically based on a similar amount of data going both ways, so both sides benefit from just connecting their networks together with no need for additional payments. But, if 90% more data is coming in than going out, then the network sending the data is going to have to pay the network that's receiving it. Which means Netflix will have to pay their ISP more so they can pay to deliver the data.
that was completely intentional.. the goal was to build mood and suspense through the lack of visibility.
There's not a lot of suspense when something jumps out of the wall behind you every time you go around a corner.
