Story is about website traffic, not network bytecount.
I'd shamefully abide if I could figure out how to come anywhere NEAR the usage cap. What on earth are you doing? I consume a lot of streaming media -- Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Xfinity, Youtube, Pandora -- on a Roku, two laptops, a couple of Android and iOS devices, and various family members rotate in and out with whatever toys they bring. I'm using about a quarter of my limit. Hitting the usage cap is probably nature's way of telling you to go outside and look at the real world.
There are occasionally exceptions where people *need* to remain anonymous for fear of lawsuits or termination from their jobs
This is not nearly so rare as you imagine.
At some point you just spend $130 and buy an Android tablet at wally world. Or a $50 Roku.
Whoever even bothered to write the article in the first place needs to lose his license to write tech journalism.
If you start applying standards to tech journalism there won't be any left.
However, 6.3" just seems like a deadzone. Too big to hold in a hand and use effectively, unless you're Shaq, but smaller than a 7 or 8" tablet like the Nexus 7
Don't forget that the correlation between screen size & device size is not neccessarily linear. Samsung managed to increase the screen size of the S4 (over the S3) by 1/5 of an inch while (slightly) reducing the phyiscal dimensions of the phone.
The Nexus 7 has a massive bezel, these devices do not & will be smaller than the 0.7 inches you'd expect placed side-by-side with a Nexus 7.
According to the age, Snowden has withdrawn that request. Mr Snowden withdrew his Russian asylum request because of a demand that he stop harming US interests by leaking documents
The right question is: How do we erase this scourge forever, including all of the compromised bot-infested Windows machines around the world?
Amazon's streaming service is flaky with linux. The issue is DRM which for some reson is not supported in the linux version of the flash player.
Amazon video works fine under Ubuntu. Use Firefox, not Chrome.

Why can't I watch videos on my Chrome browser in Linux?
The Flash Player Plugin in Chrome removed support for Digital Rights Management (DRM) in Linux as part of the upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4. This upgrade was bundled with the latest Chrome 22 update for Linux. If you applied the Chrome update, you are no longer able to watch DRM-protected content, such as movies and TV episodes. Trailers are unaffected as they do not use DRM. To get around this issue, you can use a different browser, such as Firefox. For information on Chrome and the Flash Player plug-in, see: https://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=108086.
Seeing that a reasonable amount of your rant was about the Israel-bans-thin-models story:
Note the Israeli law on thin models ONLY applies to females.
According to abc new, the law "targets adults in general, [but] it is clearly aimed at female models."
(I think that law btw, while possibly well-intentioned is not thought through & impossible to enforce.)
GP: Let's count up all the female player characters that exist in video games that aren't sex objects
You: Lara Croft (in 9 games)
You seriously think Lara Croft isn't a sex object? .
Only the iPad has the more modern software being written today...?
You can't be serious? That is fucking hysterical. You're the epitome of the OP's ""Apple fanboys are delusional" stereotype."
Seriously. Thank you, that comment has made my day.
Wikivoyage is largely a fork of Wikitravel, which has been around for years, but is under the control of a private business.
(2) if it exists, it violates causality;
That would seem to be a problem, but maybe it contains its own solution.
