I have an iPhone 5. When iOS 7 was released, the main features that pulled pep from my phone was the motion visual effect. Turning it off made a huge difference. Can be found under -Settings --> Accessibility --> Reduce Motion (ON). Hopefully the iOS performance hit is mainly video related so as to turn off whatever advance feature chews through cycles. If it's the kernel itself taxing the CPU, yeah, pretty much screwed.

Back when worked at Time Warner, we never charged for a truck roll that I'm aware of. Not unless you did something stupid like cut the main line to the house with a garden tool, or you request an additional outlet to be installed in the wall.

While I don' know, I'm pretty sure they're no fee in swapping the box out in person if the TSR agent states it's ok to do based on a technical issue. But for a truck to drive a box and install it to your home, yes, I can understand the delivery and setup charge. Now if a squirrel chewed through an overhead coax line, well that's their problem, not the subscriber's.

Since when does the Executive and Legislative branch give a damn about your constitutional rights?! Half of SCOTUS plays with it like jujitsu; bending and contorting its meaning to service some living-breating "modern times meaning" BS.

1rst amendment? You wacko! Don't have such thoughts.

Sure, agreed. But there is a major difference. Once is screwing you over on how you would like to use the connection you paid for. The other does it for political reasons, and at the behest of their corporate masters.

Democracy?? Please, we have a plutocracy now. One poison is worst than the other.

Into the frying pan, into the fire. You really want the Internet to be a "utility". Oh, that sounds all nice until Big Government starts regulating all sorts of shit. The first to go will be anonymous activity under the guise of "homeland security". In reality, to stifle political free speech and may *you* fear pissing off the opposition.

Be damn careful what you wish for. Be DAMN CAREFUL!!!!

I'm sure they'll come up with some BS term. Something like "Active services suspension" Yeah, that's it!

"Sir, we've placed a hold on your active account. You're still a valuable customer, and will be billed as such, but your connection has been disconnected" We will re-enable the connection when you agree and signed a form stating you will stop using Tor. Good day"

Brilliant. I make for such an evil villain!

I'm no fan of Apple but this is a storm in a molehill.

Agreed, but then again you probably don't fall in two the two groups that either find this offensive, or unfair.

1. The progressive liberals types that typically purchase Apple products over Android.
2. The entire music industry.

Both groups are very vocal, hence why it's "news". Now I could give a flying fuck about #1, in fact, they can suffer while I snort my morning coffee in laughter :). But I really feel for #2. This blatant favoritism on display when the music industry is ostensibly forced into the DLC paradigm. FYI I'm not a fan or a foe of U2.

So I finished watching it. I had no idea is was that contagious just from exposure to the skin alone. If this thing becomes airborne, half the human population could be wiped out! Society collapse's from lost industrial specialization, and civil war / revolutions breakout all over the globe.

Money is the root of all evil, and man needs roots.
