Toews drew derision during a debate on the government's online surveillance bill in February 2012 for telling a Liberal critic he could "either stand with us or with the child pornographers."

Look. Claiming you need 10 times the speed of anyone else to accomplish anything on the internet is not sane. Period.

Buttheads like you just can't grasp the difference between "need" and "want", and nor can the author of the original article.

Backing up data? Ever here of USB drives? Tape? Local media? You don't need to back up terabyte drives to the cloud -- there are plenty of viable, existing options for backups.

If you're going to share videos with families and friends, get a Dropbox account or something like that, upload the video, and use the cloud to serve up the data. Just how often are you creating hour long cat videos, anyhow?

People nowadays have a very entitled view as to what they "need".

OMG! My game update will take 23 hours! I can't live without playing my game for a day!
