I like this better when it was called Sega Channel
Let me know when I can get a discount in my service. I might let Verizon track me if it meant a direct discount. Until then, I'll pass.
If I am hearing correctly, this guy was signed up for 105 megabits per second... Do you know how hard it is to use 105 megabits/second? Netflix in HD only uses up 5... unless this guy has a family of 20, with each person watching HD content, 105 Megabits/second is a waste of money. I mean granted, maybe some people here can tell me how a single family home can use that much bandwidth (downloading several dozen torrents simultaneously?), but my family doesn't even use half of our 30 Megabit/second bandwidth.
Perhaps those concerned about climate change can try to raise awareness? #climatechange #conserveenergy I feel better about myself already!
They can't be any worse than the corrupt politicians we have in power now.
You can get drop in T8 replacements from http://www.ledsupply.com/t8-le... A bit more expensive, but no rewiring required.
Plus it's nice that I can drop an LED bulb and instead of having to technically call a hazmat team to clean it up, I can pick it up and it still works fine.
Rambo Tribble writes Researchers in Britain are reporting that they have found a way to prevent bacteria from forming the "wall" that prevents antibiotics from attacking them. “It is a very significant breakthrough,” said Professor Changjiang Dong, from the University of East Anglia's (UAE) Norwich Medical School. “This is really important because drug-resistant bacteria is a global health problem. Many current antibiotics are becoming useless, causing hundreds of thousands of deaths each year. Many bacteria build up an outer defence which is important for their survival and drug resistance. We have found a way to stop that happening," he added. This research provides the platform for urgently-needed new generation drugs.
I really, really want to be against net neutrality, because free market and such, but when I look at Time Warner and Comcast, they are the best argument *for* net neutrality. I guess it comes down to who I trust more, the government, or the cable companies.... and it's kind of a tie at zero... Now if the FCC would decide that the infrastructure could be used by startups, allowing for actual competition, then we might get somewhere.
If you have spent the past few years busting your ass at a job, and managed to make your way to $14/hr (say, you got promoted to a manager position at a restaraunt)... then what? Do you essentially go back to making minimum wage? Do you now make, as a manager, the same hourly wage as the dishwasher? Increasing the minimum wage is great for people that already make it, but I have always felt like it has screwed those who have worked hard to get a few raises over minimum wage.
Are those my only choices? I mean, Amazon is not a monopoly, because I can buy all that stuff at other places, so that just leaves plain evil. So I guess I am forced in to answering that Amazon is just plain evil?
It would certainly still be serving the US market, but the site would no longer be under US jurisdiction, and getting the site taken down would then become a much more involved task.
If the money was wasted by upper management, then that should be a big red flag that the problem is most likely with upper management.
Well, if those bloggers are getting all their information from the very media stations giving Obama a pass...
Well, here is the distinction between your regular Joe-Shmo Republican, and your elected official Republican: The guy on the street is all for business. The guys in office are for whatever makes them richer. There is a similar gap on the Democrat side, too. Your regular Democrat on the street wants the type of socialism that gives a hand up to the poor. The Democrats in office want the type of socialism that gives the guys in power more money. This is why this whole left-right thing is stupid- the guys on the street both want to see their fellow man prosper. The guys in office want to further themselves. But they tell you it's right vs left so that you fight amongst yourself instead of stopping them from passing selfish laws.
