We, the customers, are paying exactly for this kind of one-sided agreement though. Pretty much every residential internet connection is heavily biased towards download speeds vs. upload speeds. That means that the ISP (Verizon) knows that traffic is very one-sided, and the cost of making sure the 'pipes flow smoohtly' is just part of how they should be running their business.

The problem is that if 'we' (the west generally speaking) keep ignoring things, not wanting to start world wars and stuff, will eventually realize that there is no choice and face a foe that is already geared up and rolling.

Just think of all the Russians that are US citizens and/or are on US soil, they surely need protecting as well.

First line in your NORAD link is "North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD, /nræd/) is a combined organization of the United States and Canada that provides aerospace warning, air sovereignty, and defense for North America."

Please do tell which state or province/territory Malaysia falls under?

Seriously. Marching your military onto another country's territory without consent is a declaration of war. It's that simple, and yes, the US is just as guilty of this. If Russia is concerned about fellow Russians abroad they would not be sending in unmarked military to help 'secure' them. They would have also done this long ago, not a couple days after their favourite Ukranian gets run out of the country.

Wait, so we have a bunch of Android fans complaining about the complexity of going to the settings screen and looking for a few toggle options. How do you actually use your Android phone? Samsungs' easy mode?

PS - this happened to me too and after my new phone didn't get the text message while my old iPhone did (without a sim card, over wifi) the first thing I thought was to turn off imessage. It's not hard people. Especially for the slashdot crowd, I really really hope.

But lets keep bashing Apple, and getting pageviews!
