"'Trans fat raises the bad cholesterol and lowers the good cholesterol a little bit,' he said.'Saturated fat only raises the bad cholesterol.'"
There's actually no scientific proof of this, and in studies done over the last 5 years, can't be replicated.
My kids were the same way. Then I set up an Ampache server at home, and installed the Ampache client on their phones. Now they're all about buying again. They just wanted the convenience of having access to their whole library at once. Once I duplicated that, they went with it.
Also helped that my son borrow my headphones and learned that a lot of the music he was listening to on YouTube sounded like crap because of the low bitrate. Anything up there on an artist's official channel is good quality. But the stuff that the common man uploads has the crap compressed out of it.
Forget all the cloud crap. What I need to know is:
1. Is there finally a ModernUI (Metro) version of Office?
2. Does Outlook 2016 finally do Caldav?
3. Does Lync finally "not suck?"
I could have fiber to my door that runs to one of, say 5 network access points in my town. In the NAP, there are racks with switches and routers for dozens of ISPs. I pick one. They drive out and jack me in.
The last mile run of wire to your door is the most expensive to do and maintain.
The biggest argument against Title II is that is raises the barrier to entry, thereby killing off competition. Competition has been shown to help keep prices down over and over again.
Any time you layer more regulation on something, the cost of business goes up. Just the nature of regulation. In this particular landscape we have Google coming along and trying to offer Internet. But they're big enough to absorb the costs of regulation. Under Title II, I don't know if a small startup could arise to shake up the market.
Though I fully understand what they were trying to do with Title II, I think there was a better way to go. I think that the actual cable to your house should be part of infrastructure, much like public roads. And you get to pick who drives on that road to give you service. I think that would have opened up the door to competition and lowered prices.
Look at the 90s and how many dial-up ISPs we had. They all rode on the phone lines of the Telcos, which were pretty damn close to open.
I want the fiber to my door to be owned by someone other than my ISP.
