Fuck you both. The last thing this country needs is people actively suggesting ways to strip more freedoms away from the people.

There is no absolute freedom, if someone's freedom to shoot planes high power lasers collides with my freedom to safely do air travel, I say -- fuck THEIR freedom.

And the signal range will be abysmal.

So what. If the range is 2-5 meters and bandwidth is in Gbps, it has a potential to remove the cable clutter from my desk, allows me to connect my laptop to my TV just by sitting in front of it and I don't have to worry too much that my neighbours will do man-in-the-middle.

Comment Get used to it or move (Score 1) 474

If noise prevents you from working and you are unable to get used to it -- move to a quiter environment. I stopped noticing church bells, police sirens, etc. at all after 2 or 3 months of living where I live now. That's a nice thing about human mind -- it adapts to constant stimuli levels.

The belief that nowhere on earth offers 'basic freedoms' is a reasonable one

Why is it reasonable? Got any proof?

I could choose what I did with my life, what I studied, where I live, where and how I work. I can speak freely and am mostly free to do what I please as long as I do not disturb other people's freedom. That's "basic freedoms" if you ask me. If you think that we're all slaves because corporations and corrupt governments rule and we have mortgages or are married or whatever -- that's your opinion. Do not present it as facts.

Awww. You think you have clean air and basic freedoms. That's cute.

Yeah, being able to comment about my freedom (or lack of it) without risking death penalty makes living where I live a little bit better than in China. And, water here is still blue and air is transparent. Not like on pictures I've seen from China, but of course they were photoshopped.

Comment I got Office 365 licences "for free" (Score 1) 297

With my broadband internet connection. I pay the same price for 150/10Mbps pipe that I used to pay for 60/6Mbps one, so I could say that those licences are really free. I guess that's one way they can convince people to use them. I have no choice to give those licenses back and get a discount. I don't think Microsoft has nothing out of it.
