Do you know if this applies to the Samsung 840 EVO series?
Denver - Century Link's high speed (I'm just talking about their ads for 40Mbs) coming to (maybe) your neighborhood. I was told by more than one CL rep that there are no plans to bring it to my neighborhood.
Meaningful Competition Drives Progress: a vibrant, diverse marketplace, with transparency in offerings, pricings, and policies will spur innovation, increase investment, and lower prices. Communities, residents, and businesses should have a meaningful choice in providers.
I don't see how a government takeover will enhance competition. Mostly it will increase the cost of cable TV, at least until some other group decides that watching prime time TV is a fundamental human right.
I have a TV antenna in the attic, let them raise the cable TV rates.
In Denver, CO we can choose between Century Link DSL (speeds suck) or Comcast (expensive and service sucks). If the city of Denver jumped in that would at least give us three choices. Competition is good, right?
You can't put the genie back in the bottle. Every recording method and device is suspect, not just drones. 1984 has been privatized and the price has come down to the level that a typical home owner can afford it. And, not everyone that can afford it is a peeping-tom.
Canada seems to be ahead of the curve compared to the U.S..
"Let's be blunt, it's a nasty game" (says The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy), "but then anyone who has been to any of the higher dimensions will know that they're a pretty nasty heathen lot up there who should just be smashed and done in, and would be, too, if anyone could work out a way of firing missiles at right angles to reality."
+1 nicely stated
I have a few dimmable Cree bulbs and they flicker. Not impressed. Supposedly Phillips make better dimmable bulbs.
“It is of course perfectly natural to assume that everyone else is having a far more exciting time than you. Human beings, for instance, have a phrase that describes this phenomenon, ‘The other man’s grass is always greener.’
The Shaltanac race of Broopkidren 13 had a similar phrase, but since their planet is somewhat eccentric, botanically speaking, the best they could manage was, ‘The other Shaltanac's joopleberry shrub is always a more mauvy shade of pinky-russet.’ And so the expression soon fell into disuse, and the Shaltanacs had little option but to become terribly happy and contented with their lot, much to the surprise of everyone else in the Galaxy who had not realized that the best way not to be unhappy is not to have a word for it.”
Guess I'll be broadening my shopping horizons.
+1 Mod this up
I bought a pair of VR goggles almost a year ago for flying my drone. It permits me to see what the drone sees in real-time.
And because Wal-Mart's a horrible corporate "citizen", *we* get to make up the wage difference for their employees in the form of food stamps & other government assistance.
If they raised wages, we would have to pay more on food stamps, because they would hire different people, and their current employees would likely be unemployed. Have you ever been to Wal-Mart? My local store employs a woman in a wheelchair, and two people that appear to have Down's Syndrome. Most of their other employees don't look much brighter. These people get paid $10 per hour because that is what they are worth. If Wal-Mart is forced to raise wages, then they will pull more capable people from other more useful employment, and their current employees would get pink slips.
While there may be a slight element of truth to that I feel that it's more of a corporate management argument. IF the government would raise the minimum wage to a 'living' level then we'd see a slow move away from food stamps. It would also level the low end wage earner playing field and put Walmart (et al) in a position of not being able to lower prices because their employees' salaries are subsidized by taxes (you and me).
Or the Pastafarians.
It seems that ISP's are so concerned with Netflix's bandwidth suck that they try to get away with throttling. What about Google? Supposedly Google's web crawlers account for the largest single chunk of Internet bandwidth. (Ok, educate me)
