you are bashing out on the messenger. which in this case is akin to a journalist.

remember a few things: wikileaks nor assange goes after the info. they just receive it. someone risk themselves for the info and subsequent release.

why then is our tax being spent on shooting the messenger instead of find the party that acquired the information, or prosecuting the people guilty after the information release?

claiming they target someone is dumb. they may at most be pawns of whoever goes after the information and release it to them. at most.

if you are discontent, just email trump a link to a rootkit. chances are he is going to fall. but you must put your money were your mouth is. I am sure wikileaks will publish whatever you got after a minimal verification.

fios was sold to frontier on the west.

also it always was cable all the way. with very short runs of fiber. the actual layency was much worse than my trusty dsl+ when I lived one block from the end point.

it baffles me that this thread is full of people claiming their gig up and gig down with no mention of latency.

Despite the lowly vocabulary, the parent is 100% correct.

The best indicator ever that something is just useless and completely ignored were it not as a toy, is that there is no open source alternative being worked on.

I mean, some toy projects even get the open source alternative going. When it doesn't have, it is a very clear indicator that nobody cares outside of the little world that is san-francisco bay area.

just buy the Priv.

despite the name, ignore all the "privacy" stuff, and just use regular android that it ships with.

it is as bad as any android phablet from samsung or google, but has a physical keyboard with a touchpad sensor on each key! (so i hope eventually we get Swype-style input overthe physical keyboard)

of course, for now, since it is a shitty as any current smart phone, sometimes the virtual keyboard eats up the screen even with the hardware one open...
