Comment This is completely a non-issue with the ISPs (Score 0) 147

The simple answer why we don't hear an answer to "Have you or has your ISP fixed your bufferbloat yet?" is because the ISPs have been usin cut-through routing and forwarding that do not suffer from the buffer bloat.

Also demand for electricity will only go up especially as the transportation moves away from petrol to electricity. Effort has to be put into creating tight regulation rules and investment into safer reactors instead of bluntly opposing nuclear energy as a whole. We can start talking about abandoning nuclear energy when solar or other safer technologies mature, however we are not there yet and we need electricity now.

Comment Google can do that (Score 1) 95

Google Chrome (45-50% desktop+mobile browser market share) can stop trusting all certificates signed Symantec and display security warnings encouraging users to change Certification Authority. Aside of essentially losing the future certificate business, many customers will require refund for already purchased certificates. So yeah, Symantec will just comply with whatever Google says.
