but it would not surprise me if he does publish something with a title including the words "Net Neutrality", but which doesn't actually include regulations that somebody that is not associated with a large ISP reading them will think "yeah, this will do it".
Fine, it's not a direct quote, but it's basically what he's saying.
Some quotes from it [which presumably are real Wheeler quotes]:
“It is important not to prohibit or inhibit conduct that is efficiency producing and competition enhancing,” he wrote. “It also is important not to permit conduct that reduces efficiency, competition and utility, including the values that go beyond the material.”
“How we encourage economic growth using these [broadband] networks is crucial. And the key to that is competition, competition, competition,” Wheeler said during an event at CES 2014 last week. “Because competition is so much better than even the best, wisest, well-intentioned policy maker.”
net neutrality was initiated before his watch, but died in court during his watch, since he is in charge of the FCC. Beginning some bullshit public comment, then industry comment, then hearing process is basically a 2-4 year stall to make it seem like they are working on it. He has repeatedly indicated he doesn't want net neutrality, he's just hoping that none of the big boys that put him there do something really stupid, like totally block Netflix from their subscribers, so he won't be forced into it by a huge public outcry.
> one FCC official who works with Wheeler. 'He knows how the business runs. He knows these people, he knows what they think and what policies they want.'
yes, because 'these people' paid to have him put there. he can't be a completely obvious shill, but he already has shown his colors w.r.t. net neutrality "we'll just wait to see what happens without it first"
It's just the new 'style' of laws we are enacting around the world. It's another "we don't generally enforce it, but we will when we want to".
Cop decides you are a troublemaker, and it becomes "lets take a look at your camera, you have permission from all these people in your shot? No?"
And good luck getting permission to photograph a cop beating a suspect...
once you go black hole, you never go back.
But doesn't everybody like pie?
Oh, yes, it totally is. I just never came out and said so in my original post, which the AC accused me of having done so.
yes, but you can only infer from my post that Windows 8 is crap IF you [the reader] first believe that Windows XP was crap.
I didn't say it was crap. I said it didn't crash [which most people view as a positive] and that using it frustrates me [which most people interpret as a personal opinion and not an attack on all other users].
actually, property taxes for them are relatively low, because while they take up a bunch of land, they primarily pave over most of it and have a small [for the size of the property] building as a showroom/repair center. and they do things like set up in surrounding suburbs where property taxes are lower.
it doesn't crash, but it frustrates the hell out of me whenever I try to use it [I primarily use MacOSX]. maybe if I spent a bunch of time training myself to memorize where all the hidden stuff is, it might get close to the frustration level of WinXP.
sorry, you are only allowed to do this sort of thing with impunity if you work on wallstreet.
I'm sure the carriers are quaking in their boots for this to happen.
carrier sales completely dominate the industry vs direct consumer sales of phones. Probably by at least 2 orders of magnitude.
it means that even when a salesman was in charge, they couldn't figure out how to sell their completely revamped product into a market with several mature competitors.
they are down to trying to be the low-cost competitor by dumping their OS for free, while still demanding royalties for one of their competitors os's [android].
no, they didn't fix it.
you changed the settings for it.
you can either pick "immediately" or "15 minutes" and the default is 15 minutes.
with 7.1, they just added a message saying you have a 15 minute purchase window with an extra button to go settings, where you can change the setting.
