Is it a car powered by gas under pressure, or is it hydrogen fuel-cell, where the gas is catalysed with Oxygen to produce electricity? How is it so horribly inefficient, given how we already know how horribly inefficient combustion engines are? Is it simply a case that, no matter how compressed you get the gas, you have not compressed it to liquid levels?

What they need is a Canary.

You could have a line in your review for games that goes something like this "We have been given full permission to post our review of this game prior to release" for games that have no embargo.

When that statement is missing, you know there is embargo in place.

You really are missing the whole point, I'm sorry to say. Here in Europe, I have fibre internet and when I pick a show to watch on Netflix, it starts in under a second. When I use VOIP there's no latency. When I video conference, the image is crisp and again, there's no stuttering or lag.

US ISPs have convinced you there is a problem here that needs solving, and that the only way to solve it is to charge you or Netflix to prioritize one type of traffic over another. If someone tried that here, all their customers would move to another ISP that had their shit together.

US ISPs have refused to invest their profits into infrastructure and are going, instead, to use "Fast Lanes" as a win win situation. They _still_ don't have to build infrastructure AND they get to charge people to put up with a deteriorating service.

Thufir's a Harkonnen now.
