Submission + - DoJ is Against Net Neutrality (forbes.com)

exploder writes: Forbes reports that the Justice Department has come out against net neutrality, supporting their decision by analogy to the USPS:

The agency said providing different levels of service is common, efficient and could satisfy consumers. As an example, it cited that the U.S. Postal Service charges customers different guarantees and speeds for package delivery, ranging from bulk mail to overnight delivery.
I guess they'd have no problem with the post office charging extra to deliver letters to certain people, then?

Submission + - Gamma Ray Anomaly Could Test String Theory (sciam.com)

exploder writes: String theory is notorious for its lack of testable predictions. But if the MAGIC gamma-ray telescope team's interpretation is correct, then a delay in the arrival of higher-energy gamma rays could point to a breakdown of relativity theory. A type of "quantum lensing effect" is postulated to cause the delay, which is approximateley four minutes over a half-billion year journey.
