that won't stop it either. music and movie companies changing their business model to acknowledge current technology would. People will pay a reasonable price for content make it more easy than pirating. The mpaa and riaa would rather have perceived control instead of make money like moving to a Valve Steam model.
Magically, all the ISPs in Austin started rolling out high speed internet when Google Fiber came to Austin, TX. I expect the only reason that Google is able to do this is they have enough weight to work the political process. I do not trust ISPs to server their Customers any more than the minimum based on this evidence alone.
when you say shareholder you mean rich people.
the problem is that it is easy to replace a worker than to change companies.
There is almost no barrier for entry into the music business and no one knows this better than the music companies. They care more about control than profitability, but their grasp of music has slipped. They don't even realize the internet has given them the mortal blow yet.
Why is no one trying to put a check on the source of the problem and stop the endless prices hikes from universities? They have no incentive to be price competitive as students don't really understand what they are signing up for with loans and will pay whatever the university asks.
evolution has evidence.
It is a red flag when anyone presents their view and then refuse to allow any other theories to be discussed. And that is exactly what creationists are doing with natural selection being taught in schools.
How do you get people to vote against their own interests? Wedge issues. IMHO, the true gop agenda is to push as much money to rich people as possible at the expense of everyone else and the only way to do that is by courting the crazies.
they are going to lose a lot of people like digg did when they rolled out their redesign. I wonder why they are ignoring this self inflicted threat to their profits.
Google Fiber has come to two US cities. People should be asking how to get it rolled out faster in other cities or how to get other companies that won't throttle to setup shop
To Slashdot's credit they are not just forcing the change on everyone all at once and refuse to change it back, but it is certainly not looking good in the face of all the feedback they have already received. If Digg is any lesson you can lose all your readers over night and they won't come back, ever.
The fact that tesla is doing something like this really only acknowledges that getting stranded somewhere is a real problem they have no solution for.
I have to agree. A lot of the UI features they are adding appear to be chasing a user that does not want them?
action comes when there is support. Saying nothing will come of this is the same as accepting nsa overreach.
