+ - Wikileaks gets ahold of counterinsurgency manual->

Submitted by HeavensBlade23
HeavensBlade23 (946140) writes "Wikileaks has gotten ahold of the US Special Forces Counterinsurgency Manual. "The document, which has been verified, is official US Special Forces doctrine. It directly advocates training paramilitaries, pervasive surveillance, censorship, press control and restrictions on labor unions & political parties. It directly advocates warrantless searches, detainment without charge and the suspension of habeas corpus. It directly advocates bribery, employing terrorists, false flag operations and concealing human rights abuses from journalists. And it directly advocates the extensive use of "psychological operations" (propaganda) to make these and other "population & resource control" measures more palatable.""

+ - Roadrunner testing bandwidth caps->

Submitted by HeavensBlade23
HeavensBlade23 (946140) writes "The operator plans to offer four different packages that would cap monthly data downloads at 5, 10, 20 or 40 Gigabytes, according to Time Warner Cable spokesman Alex Dudley. As of yet, there's no unlimited option planned for the trial. Pricing has not been determined for the tiers, he said. The tiered pricing would apply only to new customers, not existing ones. If customers exceed their data-download limit, they will be charged additional per-gigabyte fees. "It's kind of like a cell phone plan," Dudley said. — Yes, because we all know how much everyone loves worrying over how many minutes they've used on their cell plan...why not bring it to internet access too?"
