We don't need regulation, we need competition. If you had 4 or 5 cable companies in your area, they'd have to be competitive, so they would want to give you a good value and better services (for example: a la carte services).

I have no argument for your second point since it does sound like a good idea to me.

I'm not for or against net neutrality, but I believe that with the proper amount of competition that the ones who are attempting to act crazy will end up either changing or going out of business.

2/3 of them are designed to help, but a lot of things designed to help end up doing more harm than good.

Kudos to the poster that wanted to separate the physical medium and the actual service.

Submission + - Mice get human gene, can see color

troll -1 writes: Mice are dichromats, they have only S and M cone pigments. They don't see color too well. But now researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the University of California at Santa Barbara have successfully transformed their vision by introducing a single human gene into a mouse chromosome. Jeremy Nathans, one of the authors of the study, describes it as 'the same evolutionary event that happened in one of the distant ancestors of all primates and that led ultimately to the trichromatic color vision'.
