Comment: I guess it depends if Comcast has the monopoly... (Score 2) 461

where you live. I live in Seattle, and despite their government-granted monopoly for most of the city, Comcast typically only offers service in wealthy (read: profitable) areas. In much of the city, faster than dial-up is not available. I had 576 kbps DSL for several years, but it recently quit working so I had to back to dial-up. If you live somewhere with Comcast, then I guess AOL is much more popular in your area.

Here in Seattle, copper.net is cheaper and better, but a lot of people are still stuck with dial-up. With Comcast not offering service to their entire monopoly area and with the fifty+ year-old phone wiring on average to residential areas, DSL isn't available everywhere either. There's a small strip on Beacon Hill where competition is allowed between Wave and Comcast, but other than that, faster than dial-up service here is spotty. I had about half a megabit per second until about a month ago when it quit for good so I'm back on dial-up myself.

You're an asshole Republican. All you people are so stupid. She was required to take customer calls 24/7. She was paid extra to do so. If she, as you so stupidly demanded, turned off the phone then she could not take the calls she agreed to take. Why does your kind always skip so much of school that you can't read? You Republicans are so stupid. You constantly don't read then spout nonsense. RTFA was invented to insult your kind, but you're too o stupid to understand it.

Please stop ruining /.. This site is dead because of your kind.

Your comment shows you know nothing about this area. While a few rich buildings and areas have great access, the rest of us are suffering with dialup. In all of the years and places I've lived here, I've only had access to DSL in one and cable in not a one. Yes, you can find a few building with gigabit Internet, but they're $2,500 or more per month in rent for a two bedroom. I've been looking at jobs in other cities. I want faster access at home. Having half of a megabit per second at home is painful.

are complete morons as proven by the Maytag plant there. The Republican morons there almost destroyed Maytag. They were founded in 1893, and despite over a hundred years of success, the idiots in Florence almost bankrupted the company and caused them to have to settle for a buyout from Whirlpool. I did machine controls at that plant, and it was amazing the number of people there that were proud they couldn't read. This is what happens when you hire Republicans. They hate actually having to work for a living. They destroy companies just like they have destroyed this country and have ruined our lives. Nearly every moment of our lives are now controlled by their kind.

> Did you say 79$?

That isn't the price. Why lie about it? It's disgusting how you people constantly do that.

The cost of AppleDontCare for your iPad is $99 for only two years. The salesliars in their rip-off stores do not tell the truth about it. They lie and claim it is three years, but that is a lie. They charge you $99, not $79 as your lie claims, to extend the warranty for only a few months more. They do not offer a standard three year warranty, because they know their garbage will not last that long. They hate us which is why they shove such unreliable garbage down our throats and refuse to warranty it.

Again, you are spouting nasty lies with that $79 claim. You need to be banned from /. for that crime. That is actually illegal to lie about the cost of warranties like you are doing.

And the rest of her Republican kind! They rule our lives. They have ruined our lives. They hate us. They are the reason I will never have a normal sexual life after b being constantly raped by her Republican kind. That is how they do. My life sucks because of the Republicans. They have ruined my life. She need to be punished for what her and the rest of her Republican kind have done to make life so horrific. Death would be worse than what the Republicans have made us live through. They hate us. That is why I wish I had killed myself twenty years ago. I wish I was dead.

areas first? The majority of my friends in Seattle are still on dial-up or ISDN because while Comcast has a government-granted monopoly for most of the city, they don't offer service to the entire area. I've lived in Seattle for my entire life in a lot of different places, but I have never lived somewhere that had cable TV available. How about providing us cable TV first before making upgrades for people that already have both TV and Internet?

So, wait - who exactly in the First World does not know what Microsoft is and does by now?

They might not know Microsoft does games. I know that I've never seen an XBox in a home except for someone that works at Microsoft and got it for free or at a steep discount. XBoxes just aren't popular so it is likely the average person has never seen one.

Their kind shits on the truth and lies lies lies. They lie to promote and help their kind and their ways. That is what they do. They even often lie when it just doesn't matter. They just lie for fun. Now Linus wants every Linux user to lie. That is what this is about. He wants to turn us into liars where lying as a daily thing we do for fun becomes normal. This Republican-created crap has destroyed this country and is infecting the world. For them, it's all about the lies.

No, we should tell the truth. If we are better than Windows, then we should tell the truth. This demand we lie and say we're down at their level is morally wrong.
