Cuban exiles are a big voting block in a big battleground state, , but obviously somebody decided to risk kicking this hornets' nest ...

The Cuban Exiles have never voted Democrat / Liberal, and have always been rabid right-wingers politically. I lived in Miami for a few years and learned that although certainly not a majority on the area, they are very vocal locally.

These people would never vote Democrat anyway, so they are not Obama's audience.

Comcast is a behemoth that Google can barely take on. Tucows will not succeed in doing much, but over time, the efforts of Google and others like Tucows might compel Comcast to yup their game. At least in my dream. Certainly Verizon and their fios didn't have the balls...

I graduated with a degree in the liberal arts (English) in 2010 after having transferred from a Microbiology program (not for lack of ability ) ...

Wow. Just wow.

Well, *in my opinion* unless you go back for another degree (and even then), you will need at least something to show some level of skill.

Perhaps work on an Open Source project?

Google don't make any money directly because they don't have ads on the site...

Any service that brings traffic to Google, will - perhaps in other ways - bring money to Google. Google does not provide "free services", and in this case, the "rights holders" in Spain not only want free, they want Google to pay so that they, the "rights holders" in Spain can not only make money on Google traffic, but make Google pay for the "right" to them.

Of course it is complete bullshit, as the Spaniards had now concluded...

I suspect you were modded "Troll" because you were trolling, you stupid pathetic little shit.

I suspect you are posting as an "Anonymous Coward" because you have no balls.

I accept my mods, you on the otherhand, are clearly a "karma whore" who shoses to post as Anon because you don't want to get your precious Slashdot Karma modded down.

On the therhand, I speak my mind, and am usueally in the "excellent" range, though sometimes the sheep here push me down to "good?

You are fake, I am real.

Live with it.

Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.
