Comment the equivalent of about 300 miles? (Score -1, Troll) 117

...a half-hour travel time between Stockholm and Helsinki, which is the equivalent of about 300 miles.

"The equivalent of about 300 miles"? What does that mean?

Oh, it means "about 300 miles". Or even "a distance of about 300 miles". Right. But this is a 'technical' topic, so we need to use more and bigger words. The best words.

Unless there's some sort of weird space-time physical equivalence principle the authors are alluding to, in which case a half hour is actually 300 miles long.

to get our internet from the cable provider as they is no other choice due to the illegal monopoly tricks cable companies use like "franchise fees" in cities to make it more difficult for competition to come in to the town.

So my cost is close to the cable number because I am punished for having internet without cable. $80 a month for 15meg

Because comcast rapes us in towns where there is zero competition.

That speeding is unsafe.

Sadly most of the "I have a right to speed" morons will chime in and claim they are far better at driving and safer at higher speeds.

I support no speed limits on limited access highways. but only the dumbest of the most stupid speed on streets with lots of cross traffic and in residential areas.

Even more stupid is a moron that sets his autodrive car to speed on such a road, this just adds to my data set that you do not have to be smart to be rich.

Does it report when I am on a government spying cellphone tower?
Does it report when the connection is untrusted or detects a MITM?
Does it do encryption without using ANY of your services?
Does it not allow any software to be installed without rebooting to an admin mode and then only allows offline apk installs?
Does it wipe all user storage before reboot?

No?

Then it is not secure.... in fact it's insecure as hell.

Does not matter, The morons in Congress will call it a terrorist action and put him in Gitmo for 60 years.

This is the problem when laws are passed by dimwits that can barely tie their shoes in the morning, let alone understand something as complex as a computer or twitter.

Here int he USA we have a major problem. WE allow the very uneducated to be the ruling class, this causes tons of laws that are absurd and applied badly.
