This ruling overturns the FCC's 2008 order against Comcast over its "network management" practices that interfered with BitTorrent traffic. This may have serious consequences for Net Neutrality going forward.

The video is captioned "What's in the Box? — Test Film 2009" and is described as "This is a early temp version. Will be deleted soon. www.whatsinthebox.nl". The linked website just contains a glowing, pulsating box, and some film credits. No, no, this is not some sort of pr0n. But the scuttlebut is that it may be either an effects demo, or some sort of viral marketing leading up to a video game release. Either way the video is worth checking out.
