There's something fishy with these results. The Google report rates the connection from my small, local ISP at "Standard Definition", and then when I compare providers in my area apparently Comcast is "HD Verified". This just doesn't add up.
The problem with this is that I have available, and pay for, fiber broadband advertised at 90mbps, and speedtest.net concludes that I am getting what I pay for (92 up/35 down). I have a Roku or other streaming media player in every room and it's not unusual to have multiple HD movies streaming at the same time in different rooms, in addition to tablets, xbox, and other internet activity.
So I have to conclude that either Google isn't testing my actual connection as it appears to and is instead showing an average from my ISP, or the results are fixed and the big, shitty cable companies have "sponsored" their own "HD Verified" results. The latter seems more likely, I've had Comcast internet in this area before fiber became available and it doesn't compare, and even the cheapest packages at my ISP are pretty quick.

During the trial, embedded systems experts who reviewed Toyota's electronic throttle source code testified that they found Toyota's source code defective, and that it contains bugs -- including bugs that can cause unintended acceleration.
I'm currently weighing your hunch against the industry experts who reviewed the source code, identified specific flaws in detail in an 800+ page report, and testified to their findings, presumably under oath. I'm on the fence here, it's a tough call. I'll let you know what I decide.
Although I'll admit I get the feeling that there is some kind of conspiracy going on here, probably related to an Obama Muslim invasion. I mean, what are the odds that the "several hundred [people] contending that Toyota's vehicles inadvertently accelerated" all happened to be fans of Toyota's with the same electronic throttle control system?
http://tangodropbox.com - DropBox trampled all over them; so they gave up.
Where can I read about this? Googling "tango dropbox" trademark doesn't return anything relevant, maybe some bad pub DMCA scrubbing going on?
If you ordered a gift at the last possible second, the problem is not UPS. It's you.
I have many problems, but Monday morning xmas shopping wasn't one of them, it worked out just fine. I don't know if it's funny, sad, or stupid how self righteous people are on the internet over the most petty and inconsequential shit. Good job on your shopping this year champ, pat yourself on the back.
The box had a warning label, but not the product...
Neither do balloons, yet dozens of kids choke to death on them every year.
What I simply don't understand is why US universities are so expensive.
I suspect it's the same reason our healthcare is so expensive, yet sub-par.
