As a software engineer, I would think that in an ID universe that genes would be shared among distinctly created lifeforms. I will often use similar design patterns and libraries for different applications. Identical code doesn't mean that a book library manager program evolved from a shoot-em-up video game, it just means that it has a common designer.
I'm not sure how it proves/disproves Intelligent Design. I do think that it models ID closer than it does evolution. Here's why. When people talk about evolution, they're not just talking about species adapting and changing over time. I think most people believe that. They're also proposing the idea that all species originated from a single origin. That's where ID and evolution are different. So ID proponents would say that an Intelligent Designer (God, the Matrix programmers, etc...) created many different organisms and those adapted and changed over time. Similarly memes are created individually using similar formulas over time. There isn't a proto-meme that is the father of all memes. But each meme was designed by an intelligent (not high IQ or super wise, just something that is self determining) entity. Each meme then evolves. Sometimes the evolution of one meme affects another, but each has its distinct origin.
I called AT&T about this and they blamed Netflix. I don't know what the truth is. I can stream Amazon in HD fine most days, but even with an 18Meg pipe, Netflix looks like garbage. Hopefully when Google comes to town this year, I can finally get rid of AT&T.
I was about to say, "No it isn't..." But then I realized that in qwerty that the R and D are close by.
I think 31 miles is much closer than 70. Given that signal strength weakens exponentially it's really not a fair comparison.
And thanks to
Distance. Not everyone lives in the city.
I use to live in a town that was 70 miles away from the nearest NBC station. You can't easily pick up content from that far away.
I don't get it... That's like saying, "That's it, McDonalds has failed once again. I'm going back to brushing my teeth."
How about Richard Nixon? When deep throat blew the whistle on him, he resigned.
That's interesting. Most people I know grew out of playing Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto and start playing grownup games like Pokémon instead.
Unless the municipality requires them to, they won't. Time Warner in Kansas City is required to support all of KC. Other ISPs that came in later (AT&T, Google, etc...) don't have such a requirement.
It's up here for the same reason
I used to live in a rural town. We had just one provider. Many of those maps that show multiple providers are inaccurate. They likely only have the coop. If there was competition, then there would be no reason for a coop.
