My home has no POTS and has a choice of either FTTP (fiber to the premises) or cable.

When we first moved in, I choose fiber... because it's fiber! It must be awesome.

AT&T fiber maxes out at 18Mbps and that it at a crazy unaffordable rate. Cheaper service from Comcast is 120Mbps.

It's not the physical medium that matters, it is the service and cost.

I'd do LTE if that had the best bang/buck.

Intel still supports and releases binary drivers for the Poulsbo platform.

It has never been a one-shot or abandoned platform. However, you need to understand that this device was specifically designed for embedded applications and not general purpose computing products.

It's unfortunate in my mind that several manufacturers released it as a consumer product.

Terminator Salvation Game Launched, PC Version Recalled 75

Posted by Soulskill
from the stop-making-mediocre-tie-ins dept.
On Tuesday, the video game tie-in to the Terminator Salvation movie was launched for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Most reviews pegged the game as solidly mediocre; IGN said, "the action is fairly tame throughout and the cutscenes are stunningly ordinary. And yet despite the poor presentation, there are some clever gameplay elements that make Terminator enjoyable. Too bad that joy only lasts a handful of hours before the credits roll." However, customers who had purchased the retail PC version ran into installation errors, leaving them unable to play the game. Now, publisher Evolved has issued a recall for that version of the game, saying, "a defect occurred during replication," and promising a replacement plan for people who had purchased it.
