Too many people consider this their ISP's job, regardless of where the router came from.

Explosion after a measurable temperature hike sounds more like a laser or maser attack than a collision
Really, and how does it sound in space?
Wouldn't it be easier to buy a blu-ray player that has that ability? There are certain makes available in the U.S (I'm going to assume you're in the U.S.) that have hidden player settings menus to control BD region specification. It's not possible to get a true "region free" (it plays everything) player, you'll have to change the player whenever you go from discs from one region to another. But at a cost of $50-$100 it's affordable to buy it as a second BD player to set to your favorite secondary region that you have many titles from, and much cheaper than importing a normal player from the region you want.
The camera diddled the image, maybe it was diddled even more before we actually saw it. Then we're all amazed that it doesn't look like the thing. But people have accidentally been taking pictures of things which don't look like things since time immemorial. They're called shitty pictures.
This is what happens when publications fire their professional photographers and give their "reporters" (who skill-wise are glorified bloggers now) smartphones and tell them to take their own pictures, because that's much cheaper than hiring real pros. The sad part is they probably think this is all great. After all, they're getting a lot more page views over this stupid photo controversy than a properly taken picture of the dress would have attracted to their site.
...that are inserted by their owners.
Always good to remember a venerability is a venerability, but a trojan is a trojan.
- People buying legitimate blu-ray titles are not going to have this issue.
- Even people downloading pirated content are not going to have this issue... as long as they are downloading just video files and not trying to pirate the entire disc with menus.
And half those sort of "new generation" searchers won't know half the time if they are redirected to a phony site.
Or if they are blocked from reaching the site they want by the search provider choosing to delist what they are looking for.
Who needs an actual government internet filter when you can ask your good friends at the search providers to make the site "disappear" for a growing portion of the population.
whoops. meant to say the electronic whiteboard scanner is *not a cheap system.
I know I've seen systems that use sensors you mount around the edge of a whiteboard and special markers to track where you are drawing and reproduce it electronically on remote monitors -- it's on a cheap system, but it's cheaper than flying people in airplanes all over the place.
You could also just have the whiteboard person use a graphics tablet, and skip the big arm movements.
Yes. Unfortunately I don't think it works as well without being able to use a cents symbol (stupid lack of unicode on Slashdot).
We're much smarter than Blacks, but not as smart as Asians
I actually find this troll amusing, and can't tell if the poster was trying to parody Brave New World or not.
More like they don't expect to win a real argument that the FCC's proposals are in any way bad, so they are trying to win by mocking the FCC.
It's a schoolyard bully's trick.
The FCC should let'er rip and give Verizon their own 0.02 cents on the topic.
Yes, why not become a real rock star and die at a young age of a heroin overdose when your career begins to decline.
It is said in the movie that Rachel was "an experiment, nothing more". That she did not know what it was.
Didn't Bryant send Decker to Tyrell's HQ because there was Nexus 6 there, which led to him running Voight-Kampff on Rachel?
... unless we pretend we aren't in the U.S.
Hooray for patents!
I'm curious what this obscure phone is.
