I like this idea, but I'm going to assume that all that will happen is ISPs charging more for 10 Mbps service. I should think I'm lucky, with 3 choices for ISPs in my area (Charter, AT&T and TDS). I refuse to deal with Charter, and AT&T isn't much better. The problem is that TDS is running over AT&T's infrastructure, and are limited to 3 Mbps DSL.

Isolate out the caffiene genes, and start adding it to other plants. There are times I'm eating breakfast, and I'm thinking "Why am I only getting caffiene from the coffee? Buzz up them hashbrowns! Perk up that toast! If we can introduce it into animals, think about caffinated eggs, or butter, or cheese. We can finally jitter up the world.

I think the issue is that security isn't pretty, and Apple wants pretty. Look at the two-factor authentication. Having to wait until a PIN is sent to you before you can access whatever? That isn't elegant at all (from Apple's POV. It removes the one click convenience.). Personally, I'd rather have the security, but I'm a geek, like most people on Slashdot.

Of course this is going to piss off the old school players, but then again they ar eproblably still playing the original versions off of their own servers. Then again, how many new players are going to be interested in playing quake? It's been years since it was relevant.

I carry two phones, my personal phone, and one supplied by my company. Yes, it can be a pain, but I prefer having my personal contacts/info seperate from my work device. Also, I can shut down my work phone when I'm on vacation, and still have my personal calls for my own email/calls/etc. It helps me maintain a work life balance.
