Comment Re:World renowned Dr. Ponemon?? Never heard of him (Score 1) 242

Or perhaps more kindly: even if the data are completely accurate, they're averages that don't necessarily apply to every, or even any, particular case. I can't make a decision about something like this on the basis of what the mean or median cost/benefit would be, but only of what (as best I can estimate them) my own are.

This. You are likely not too save much money if you like sports in general, and get all the sports channels, or movies in general, and get all the movie channels. But if you are croquet (and no other sports) and documentaries (and no other movies), and get the Croquet Network and the Documentary Channel, and nothing else, you might come out ahead.

Comment Re:Auto-update bad for enterprises? BUNK! (Score 1) 218

You're thinking about this bass-ackwards. For a stable corporate release, use the ESR of Firefox. Don't try blocking things in DNS--for two reasons. First, there are now lots of mobile machines likely to be on the corporate networks (personal laptops, tablets, smartphones), and there's no reason to block them. Second, lots of corporate machines are notebooks, so they are going to be online outside of the LAN, and will autoupdate there. So better to go with a different release path than to try to do this at the firewall.
