Comment I have the need, the need for speed. (Score 1) 769

I like my Keurig. As the only coffee drinker in the house one cup at at a time fits me fine. But you can use any kind of ground coffee in it if you get some of those fill yourself pods. They are cheap and you can use your specialty coffees in them. If the Keurig folks shoot themselves in the foot with DRM I'm sure some one will come out with one without it. Or a hacker will build a home model.

And did this allow the wire tapping of his parents and Fox employees? Taking their PHONE records? There was more to this than some emails. Of course it was OK to lie about the circumstances to the court to obtain the warrants when they knew Rosen wasn't possibly a criminal "co-conspirator" as shown by, Surprise! Surprise!, No charges filed. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/05/23/correspondents-association-concerned-government-too-aggressive-in-tracking/

Comment Tom Swift for the younger crowd. (Score 1) 1244

I liked reading the Tom Swift series when I was a kid. They had "inventions" a bit ahead of their time considering the series started written in 1910. You can still read some of them here - http://durendal.org/ts.html - for free. Check out the Electric Gun, Electric Runabout, the Photo Telephone to name a few.

Comment Why upgrade? (Score 2) 211

My question is "Why bother to upgrade to 4G or any other speed?". A high speed phone isn't any use if you can't use it for what it's meant for. If enough people just drop the most useful aspects of their phones (Internet) and use then for just them as phones, the shoe would be on the other foot. My phone still works with WiFi and I don't even HAVE a carrier. I find that for me a cell phone isn't viable because I only make a call or two a month. On the other hand I still can check my email and browse when in a WiFi zone like my house of a place of business that offers it, and it still works great as a media and game player.
