why does Gore get all the Nader votes? I have to believe a large percentage of Nader voters would not have seen anything they liked in either Bush or a Gore and would instead opt to stay home and not compromise by voting for the lesser of two evils...
Kinda like when Sarah Palin said 'I can see Russia from my front porch?'
Only, of course, she never said that - Tina Fey, pretending to be Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live said it... Apparently the Left has a problem discerning comedy from news...
Currently, 6.3 percent of US households don't have access to broadband under the previous 4Mpbs/1Mbps threshold, while another 13.1 percent don't have access to broadband under the new 25Mbps downstream threshold.
6.3 + 13.1 = 19.4%
That means just over 80% of Ameticans DO have access to High-speed broadband internet service.
Reminds me of the 85% of Americans that were pleased with their healthcare coverage, before Democrats convinced us we needed to light our hair on fire and turn the healthcare industry on it's ear to address the 15% without healthcare coverage..
How long before the Democrats start running around telling us how horrible it is that do few Americans have access to broadband internet access, and then they will roll out a solution, based on increasing taxes on the rich to fund a massive infrastructure investment that just so happens to include almost exclusively Democrat contributors.
We saw this with the 2008 race to invest in green energy, remember Solyndra?
the exploding ATM will draw a lot more attention than your choice of headwear...
Why can't the Constitution be amended, striking out the portions that define the amendment process? Then you can't amend the constitution, you have to replace it.
Bush declared war on Iraq in 2003.
Well if the Conservatives 'got in'(was there a miscount?), it can only mean the rules didn't work too well.
Wow. So the point of the initial election reforms in Canada was to block out the Conservatives, and having failed in their attempt to silence their opponents, the new Minority party (liberals? I don't follow Canadian politics.) is upset that they now find themselves being suppressed.
There are a couple ways to respond:
"You started it"
"Turnaround is fair play"
"What's good for the goose is good for the gander"
"Serves you right"
Why is Comcast cast as the villan? This is SOP for any major letter writing campaign I've ever heard of - outside group offers supporters 'sample' letters to send to those making the decision, supporters simply copy-and-paste the 'sample' letter, and everyone pretends it means something.
The anger should directed at the compliant and lazy politicians that never learned how to copy someone else's work and avoid detection.
...the Raspberry Pi board, you know, that $30-35 "PC" that not needs a keyboard, mouse, SD card, TV, case and power up ply to be usable as a desktop...
What makes his project not cost efficient IMHO is going to be the collection and testing of recycled modules.
Also, the CPU needs big and fast memory, and plenty of I/O bandwidth to do useful stuff. Not typically the stuff you find on a cell phone.
Maybe not your cellphone...
Check out the HP Stream 7 tablet - $100 for a 7" tablet with full Windows 8.1 and 12 months of Office 365 for the tablet and ANOTHER PC (2 installations). But, oh wait - it comes from a traditional computer manufacturer - will they go under or ride the wave?
Because it "stifles innovation" - you certainly can't expect start-ups to play by the same rules as the companies they are competing with, can you?
Reminds me of one version of the "pro net neutrality" argument - if you allow existing companies (with their massive resources) to pay for improved bandwidth to customers, then how will the under-funded start-up ever compete? You must tie the hands of the entrenched companies to give their competitors a chance...
It's not like they are running a business out of their car... Oh wait.
We have restrictions on running businesses out of the house, there should be similar restrictions for running a business in your auto.
The real issue will be when a "personal use" driver damages his car (and potentially a paying passenger) when involved in a traffic accident AND the driver's private insurance refuses to cover the damage and any ensuing lawsuits.
Good luck with pushing [Windows] 8 to the corporate world... it's about as adoptable as an angry badger with syphilis.
Why would a corporate customer choose to install Windows 8 when Windows 10 is just around the corner? MS will still be pumping out FREE security updates for Windows 7 for 4-5 more years, certainly long enough to wait for Windows 10 SP 1...
