I live in the state of Georgia and I've had Telocity, DirecTV, and Speakeasy all provide my DSL. Primarily because they offered a static IP address by default. Never had to buy DSL service from BellSouth/AT&T. I even have naked DSL, ie DSL without accompanying phone service.

Firefox 3.5 Beta Boosts Open Video Standard 281

bmullan writes "Dailymotion, one of the world's largest video sites, announced support for Open Video.

(You can get the Firefox 3.5 beta here.) Dailymotion is automatically transcoding all of the content that their users create, and expect to have around 300,000 videos in the open Ogg Theora and Vorbis formats."
