youtube has known speeedbumps in place thanks to your ISP.

I get 50/10 cable Internet and sometimes It feels slow to me.I can support 5 vudu HDX streams at once and have done 3 before with no buffering.

10Mbps is unbearably slow for modern Internet. I am a consumer. I buy and rent movies from Vudu, M-GO, AmazonVOD, netflix, youtube. I play games from Steam and Origin. It's worth the price to get 50Mbps if it's available. Especially when you have 3 streaming TVs, 4 computers, and 4 phones/tablets.

We shouldn't have to use it.

There's a change coming on the Internet. Pageviews are a useless metric. Clicks are done for.

True value lays in the userbase. User capital is the new currency. And not selling to advertisers. The single carefully formed tweet, pin, or *sigh* FB wall post can be worth thousands to the right company. What kind of users follow you? Who wants a crack at those users.

I haven't seen an intrusive ad in almost a decade. They are dead. They are a complete waste of money. Banners are done.

The stuff I block with adblock shouldn't be seen for a reason. I block it for a reason. It's already the third tier Internet. It's one step above Nigerian prince email.

perhaps, but this is typical of AMD and ATI products ranging all the way back to my experiences with Athlons and the ATI Rage 128 graphics card.

Their hardware just isn't as stable as Intel or Nvidia. And that's my experience with 4 different AMD systems over the years. When you put an intel computer on the same power supply, stability just happens.
