My question is, was this a strategic move by Comcast/Verizon, et al?
They pay people enormous sums of money to run scenarios like this and forecast business decisions.
Would really suck if we all somehow played the patsy.
I feel like I just stumbled into a screening of The Sleeper.
That was a really insightful piece of writing. Full of interesting information about technology that may or may not ever end up in use.
Especially considering we have this in development!
Also, I've seen better edited documents from high school seniors!

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver had a great segment about this exact problem. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
Disregard my entire drunken comment!!!
Original prize = $250k. New prize, $1m. That's a 300% increase over last year but works out to be 4 times (technically more, they shared the prize with Intel int he beginning) their original contribution.
Fuck you! Did you seriously just turn "men have fewer parental rights than women" into "women make less, that's why men have fewer parental rights"?
I can't read anymore of the SJW or NeoFeminist bullshit.
You are the problem.
Equality =/= feminism. Especially, not the recent spate of vitriol coming from 3rd wave feminists.
Eroding men's rights does not enhance women's rights but, that's what you would have me believe.
Amazon (under Bezos' leadership) has made enormous amounts of money where no one thought there would be money. This will be the sleeper hit that dominates the next generation of IoT.
How can they claim that there's more of these homeless planets than not when they've only found one of them...ever!
I understand that we don't have to see something for it to be there but, this leap is just too big to bear.
This is a very salient point. Netflix already has these arrangements with other ISPs. Only Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon (surprise surprise) refused to host local caching servers. Of course, this precedes their demands for more money because, "Waaaahhhh...they're stealing our customers, they need to pay!".
Netflix tried to be the better entity (within reason) and were told, in no uncertain terms, "Go fuck yourself."
Yay, free market!
They're sounding more and more like 5 year old's complaining to their parents.
Have some fucking accountability. Jesus.
New York and New Jersey.
Verizon has been fucking them for years...hard!
Never thought I'd feel bad for people from Jersey...
