google hurt advertising?
we have had metal detectors for years if not decades. this is just a better metal detector
except netflix wants everyone to host their servers for free and pay the costs of doing so
ISP's are just going after some of the tier 1 backbone market. no reason why they can't
that's why there are CDN's and hundreds of companies use them and netflix refuses to pay a commercial CDN
these engineering and business problems were figured out 15 some years ago and everything worked OK more or less. youtube was a disruption but that was just the amount of traffic. netflix wants free services that other video providers pay for and have paid for many years now
all they have to do is contract with a CDN like everyone else does to host their content and like everyone has been doing for the last 15 years
he's doing the same thing as uber, airbnb and lyft
run a business without paying the traditional costs in the field and socialize your costs. in this case he wants every internet customer to pay for his bandwidth whether they use netflix or not. just like cable TV channels make you buy every channel
they can, just borrow $100 billion to build out a network, negotiate with every redneck and podunk town to get franchise rights to run their cables and spend more money for marketing to get customers
greed from level 3 and cogent
when they had the power they would charge what they wanted and disconnect free peering connections for breaking the contract. now that they don't, they whine about network neutrality when they used to charge for the same services they say the ISP's need to provide them for free
i bet even coax cable can support everyone watching netflix at the same time, but a large part of the bandwidth is still dedicated to old style TV. Sit Coms, sports, reality shows, etc. and most people still watch regular old TV.
most netflix customers use it as a secondary service. it's the tiny percentage of cord cutters who are about as annoying as NYC bike riders who think everything should revolve around them
and how much time is it taking you to copy and paste dozens of hundreds of links?
and how many times have people, especially women have gone to the doctor and been ignored or told their symptoms were nothing? when the doctor should have done a test or procedure based on the patient's complaint? or in my wife's case a lower doctor wanted to do a c-section without doing the right tests first and her doctor who was the chief of obgyn at the hospital said no and after they did the tests it was found a c-section was not required
even then it's hard to sue for malpractice. the lawyers who do this have nurses on staff who review the charts and only a small percentage end up in a lawsuit.
the only value in 3d movies is that in some of them it's the only way to get a digital copy on itunes or vudu
when the millenials start to have kids instead of partying all the time and the kids go to school and they realize their precious snowflake is going to school with kids who bring in guns and curse and are dummer than farm animals and are bussed in from the bad city neighborhoods because of diversity or because the projects are two blocks away then,
the millenials will forget all this walkability and carbon footprint nonsense and move out to places with good schools where precious snowflake who reads 2-3 grades above the average kid in the USA won't be in the same class as the dumb shits who barely know the alphabet in first grade. in the 80's when the baby boomers got tired of their camaros it was called White Flight and the cities with all their rentals became ghost towns. Today it's going to be the same except for more ethnicities doing it
give it another 5-10 years and it will happen. the chicks will wake one day and hear their biological clock ticking louder than ever and dump all the man kids who do nothing but party
how do you get Cambridge, the mission district and Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn in the same list?
i know people there and drive there once a month or so. it sucks. the schools suck. parts are close to the subway but large parts are a 30 minute walk. the stores within walking distance suck as well. unless you speak russian or chinese you won't fit in.
with amazon prime it's cheaper to live in a car dependent area, drive to work, buy from amazon and drive grocery shopping once a week
And most of the areas listed in the article are too expensive for mere mortals
And the way to buy a home is to ask how are the schools? Good school districts will keep value long after walk ability and other fads wear out. Problem with cities is too much rentals. Too easy for people to flee once their lifestyle changes
