Better performance in higher density areas. If you're within wifi range of 50 residences, each of which has their own wired uplink, they still have to share the same wireless spectrum. More is better.
Generally articles that can be responded to by quoting Betteridge's law are not worthy of further discussion.
That's good because you'll have to now.
Anycast is not a magic pill.
If you set up one DNS server on the east coast, another on the west coast, with anycast, it will still suck.
You'd need an anycast DNS server in every ISP in every metro area to match end users simply using their ISP provided local DNS servers.
Encrypting the password.
I always thought it sounded like: my life for hire.
Wired networks used to use a sort of timeslot based system, we called it token ring. Then we discovered that collision detection and backoff could work better and have no central authority. We call it Ethernet.
No, Ethernet was cheaper not faster. And you're talking about 15 years ago.
Current Ethernet products meet those requirements already in a chip that costs <$10.
Current Ethernet chips that you might find in a NIC handle the original half duplex spec, which offers no protection against people trying to "cheat." They also handle the much more popular full duplex mode of operation that requires either a point to point connection with another host, or a connection to a switch.
Ethernet switches and layer 3 switches are the devices that control traffic flow and isolate one host from another. And they are expensive, and centralized.
Ethernet's modern reputation for speed is based on using switches not hubs.
So they can plan, get to the apple store in a coordinated manner, steal the equipment, fence it, split the money, and be ready for the next cycle in 31 seconds?
You can only say that due to the absurdity of any other interpretation, not due to any clear communication by the author.
Wow, according to the article, the laser is supersonic. Good to know.
Flash won't die and create a void. It has to be forced out by something that meets market demands.
I think the Iranians hate their own government more than the US government, by a lot.
I assume that to mean the average yearly maximum.
You're missing the point.
If poor netbook penetration was responsible for Microsoft's 8% decline, why aren't we seeing a boost when the penetration is high?
The answer is, netbooks weren't responsible for the 8% decline either.
