JakeBurn (2731457) writes "Time Warner, Comcast, Verizon, AT&T and Cablevision are rolling out a new program wherein they will be monitoring everything you download and, via algorithms, decide whether or not the download is legal. Apparently information on everything you download will be passed on to a third party company to analyze. There isn't really any news there about what they will do with the findings but it can lead to throttling your internet if it continues. Kind of interested in legal ramifications if a person's download history is made public through hacking etc."

+ - Kid killed by unplugged power supply?-> 2

JakeBurn (2731457) writes "This story is somewhat confusing as its obvious the reporters don't know the right questions to ask, but a 16 yo supposedly died by opening his computer after it was shut down and unplugged. His parents said he was scavenging for parts for another computer when it happened. From the article I'm unsure why he would have opened the PSU itself when taking it out but never heard of someone dying from handling one."
