If you buy blu ray you're fucked as they can retroactively cancel any blue ray player hardware.
Thank you kindly.
Is there an rss link for that blog? I can't find it.
That is pretty shady that they seize his materials, use it to their advantage, but then don't charge him with any crime. That's basically tyranny.
I get 16 Mbit upload from my BT Infinity. On the one hand its less than 1/4 of my download speed...on the other hand, I used to have download speeds that were worse than that!
My TP-LINK router worked immediately with OpenWRT. Going for bleeding edge daily builds is pretty risky TBH; I am not sure I would have done that myself.
Still, there's the historic GPL violations in that project...
I have had great success with OpenWRT on a TP-Link wireless router (don't remember the exact model). I looked into DD WRT but that project has a history of GPL violations so OpenWRT it is.
If you live in a block of flats and several other residents each use their own wifi networks you will not get 10Mb/s
I have DLC for the first Mass Effect. If I want to play that DLC now I have to install Origin and accept its terms of service. Its completely unreasonable to be forced to agree to additional terms and conditions to play stuff you've already paid for.
Blizzard games also take a very long time to reduce on price.
The only time Steam fucked me was about 5 years ago when I moved into a new house and didn't have the internet for about 6 weeks. The playing offline functionality didn't work so I couldn't access any of my games. Apart from that, its been fine... well maybe it takes too long to log in...but apart from that, fine.
What's going to be important is the encoding and decoding process at either end - they could have more of an impact than the network delay if done badly. Also if people use wifi I expect they may see much less consistent performance.
corporate pcs are typically rather locked down
Yeah their tech support guys strongly suggested they would charge me if I sent my hard discs back under warranty so I said screw them and have avoided them since. If they are not getting into the ssd market proper it suits me as I'll mainly only buy SSDs from now on.
