Of course if you own your own home, you can put in all the ethernet you want.

In theory, yes. In reality it means knocking lots of holes in the walls, drilling through floors, etc, etc.. That gets expensive / time consuming. The previous owners of my house had the thing (built 1890) wired with coax and it all runs on the outside of the house. I settled for running one CAT6 cable from my office on the 2nd floor to the basement. Otherwise I'm stuck with WiFi.

Sonny Yatsen (603655) writes A California man with nothing better to do has launched a class-action lawsuit against Sony because he claims he was harmed because Killzone: Shadowfall's multiplayer mode doesn't have native 1080p resolution as Sony originally claimed. He now demands 'all economic, monetary, actual, consequential, statutory and compensatory damages' as well as punitive damages from Sony.

Nothing you read should ever be assumed to be true. It does not matter whether it is written on Wikipedia, on a dead tree, or some other website. Critical thinking and fact checking are paramount. Does it smell like BS? It probably is.[1]

White House Approves Sonic Cannons For Atlantic Energy Exploration 272

An anonymous reader writes: The White House on Friday gave final approval to allow the use of sonic cannons in finding energy deposits underneath the ocean floor on the U.S. Atlantic seaboard. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management says that finding energy resources off the Atlantic seaboard "could generate thousands of jobs, but has also acknowledged that the process will harm sea creatures." Sonic cannons "fire sound waves 100 times louder than a jet engine." Mammals such as whales and dolphins that communicate through sound will most likely be affected, but scientists aren't sure to what extent. They also aren't sure how the cannons will affect fish and other sea creatures or how any physiological effects on them may impact the fishing industries of the U.S. and the other countries who rely on seafood that migrate into and out of the Atlantic Ocean.
