Comment Re:A free search engine (Score 1) 143

You're using the over-simplified definition of monopoly they teach in grade school. It's a question of market power. Yes, there are other search engines, but there is one that is big enough for long enough that it's name is regularly verbed as a synonym of searching.

Submission + - suggestions for taking a business out into the forest? 2

An anonymous reader writes: I'm also a huge fan of primitive survival reality TV. I am also self-employed in web troubleshooting and hosting services. I have to be available 24/7, but a lot of my work is just being online for a few minutes at a time. I often think about taking my business "outdoors", camping, 3-7 days or so at a time — but staying online. Has anyone had experience with this? How did you do it, in terms of internet connectivity and portable power? Satellite internet or long distance wifi antennaes and a very tall pole? I've looked at some portable power stations with solar attachments, but the idea of hand-cranking to recharge if it's overcast isn't fun, after all, the point is to relax. But I'm willing to manually recharge if it's realistic (would prefer pedaling though!) I happen to have a Toughbook CF-52 (I just thought it was cool) but I may need to replace that with a more eco-friendly laptop as well. Thanks!

Anything cut to length will be too short.
