Comment Embraer Phenon 300 loss of stability? (Score 1) 170

Anyone know why the FAA specifically mentions the Embraer Phenon 300?
From the FAA NOTAM: (it's in all caps in the NOTAM)
ADDITONALLY, DUE TO GPS INTERFERENCE IMPACTS POTENTIALLY AFFECTING EMBRAER PHENOM 300 AIRCRAFT FLIGHT STABILITY CONTROLS, FAA RECOMMENDS EMB PHENOM PILOTS AVOID THE ABOVE TESTING AREA AND CLOSELY MONITOR FLIGHT CONTROL SYSTEMS DUE TO POTENTIAL LOSS OF GPS SIGNAL.

Comment Test peering (Score 1) 294

I'd like to see a site that's capable of testing the peering throughput of a given ISP. As opposed to running a single speed test, it'd run run multiple tests consecutively via servers on different networks. Take the Verizon fiasco recently where they had a saturated link to Level 3 that affected Netflix. A peering test would be capable of highlighting this sort of thing.

Nothing is 100%. Something WILL go wrong. As each day passes without incident the probability of something going wrong increases. I'm all for nuclear power, but, the cost of a nuclear disaster has to be considered. Simply saying we can build it safe means nothing. Something WILL go wrong.

Comment Micro USB (Score 1) 405

Most if not all cell phone manufactures utilize the industry standard micro USB for charging. If I ever decide to purchase an iPhone I'll have to "throw away" my old charging accessories that work with 99% of phones on the market today and "buy new Apple approved charging accessories".

Comment Do the ends justify the means? (Score 1) 828

At what point do you decide that gun related violence and crime outweigh the cost of liberty? The gun related deaths are a necessary evil that come along with having the means to rise up and overthrow an oppressive government. You might say it'll never happen. If history is any indication I'm not willing to gamble.

I tether often, and I don't notice this on pages loaded on the tethered PC. It must be a forced proxy they have set up in the stock browser?

It doesn't matter if you're using the stock browser or not. In the past you used to be able to switch to a different APN (internet2.voicestream.com, internet3.voicestream.com) and avoid the compression. I've heard that modifying the headers with a Firefox addon get's around the issue but I haven't tried it. I personally connect to my router at home via PPTP on my android to get around the compression. If you're curious if your carrier is molesting your images, download the same image over cellular and wifi and compare the size of the two.
