Comcast Intercepts and Redirects Port 53 Traffic 527

An anonymous reader writes "An interesting (and profane) writeup of one frustrated user's discovery that Comcast is actually intercepting DNS requests bound for non-Comcast DNS servers and redirecting them to their own servers. I had obviously heard of the DNS hijacking for nonexistent domains, but I had no idea they'd actually prevent people from directly contacting their own DNS servers." If true, this is a pretty serious escalation in the Net Neutrality wars. Someone using Comcast, please replicate the simple experiment spelled out in the article and confirm or deny the truth of it. Also, it would be useful if someone using Comcast ran the ICSI Netalyzr and posted the resulting permalink in the comments.

Comment and autonomus control doesn't make the headline??? (Score 1) 81

It's a robot with the ability to finish mowing after you define the parameters (edge of the field) and we're excited somebody is using a Wiimote???

Let me put it this way, which movie would you watch - the one where somebody successfully controls a robot from a distance, or the one where you give a robot a spinning deadly blade and then let loose?

See what I mean.

BTW trick question geeks would watch both

Peace out.
