Comcast VP: 300GB data cap is business policy, not technical necessity (x-post /v/DigitalDivide) submitted by ChillyHellion to technology

I'd rather have a 10Mbit unmmettered than 1000Mbit with caps.

This right here. I only care about stupidly fast speeds when Steam's idling away downloading something. With 3D and 4K streaming coming we'll likely need more than 10Mb, but the average* user could probably get by on a rock steady 10Mb/10Mb connection without noticing a thing (Is that enough for 1080p?). Case in point, I'm on a pitiful 1.5/.75 connection and I can stream (480p will work with no buffering most of the time) and play anything I want. One or two items at a time, true, but it's doable.

*Please note that I'm painfully aware that if you're torrenting things (legal or otherwise) or hosting your own file server then 10Mb is nothing.

Edit: Details and a question. And 3 letters.

Thank you for the reminder. I heard about this guy a few months back and read up on him. It's truly a pity that too many people will still buy this game and support this kind of nonsense.

You know why there are no Muslims in Star Trek? Because it's set in the future. submitted by littul_kitton to whatever

The only species I know of, off the top of my head, that active practice religion are the Bajorans in DS9. The Vorta and Jem-Hadar also have a fairly blind devotion to the Founders, though that's likely more a result of their genetic engineering and fanaticism than a religion.

everything there is clean manicured grass

I only really take issue with this statement. At about the 0:02 mark in the video you linked to the camera dips to the ground and you can clearly see some roots coming from a tree at a point that would be approximately right for the cop to stumble on and do his tumble.

That being said, watching the whole video that cop is definitely high strung throughout. Whether he crossed the line or not is up to the appropriate parties to decide.

That being said, let this be a lesson to all to not talk back to the cops, don't run from the cops, and don't do other things to antagonize the cops. This story would be all about this one cop going overboard on everybody if it weren't for all the kids that ran from them and the girl(s) that wouldn't stop talking shit. Now the conversation is diluted between overzealous cop and civilians that made things worse.

Out in the field like this is not the place to be stirring up shit. At best you just piss off the cops. At worst you die. Comply with the requests/commands of the cops until they're removed from the situation. At that point, if warranted, get a lawyer and escalate it.

Google Fiber is Forcing ISPs to Lower Prices, Speed Up Service submitted by fluxusp to technology

sigh I suppose I asked for it by not specifying that the service should be within the United States.

However, comparing a country that is roughly 1/7th the size of Texas with almost twice its population is hardly an apples to apples comparison, wouldn't you say?

But we're not comparing the United States, at large, now are we?

When was I not? You're the one that decided that South Korea prices were great to stack up against Google Fiber, a service only available in the US.

We're comparing their deployment to a handful of a very geographically restricted locations.

In the United States.

I think South Korea is a relevant example since they shows you how low prices can get, though I imagine there are even cheaper options available. It's not like they're paying less for their fiber or technology. The only real cost saving they're going to have is cheaper labor, but even there it's going to be a fairly modest saving as their incomes have been catching up to ours.

Except this isn't an apples to apples comparison. While it won't necessarily account for all of the price increase, you can't discount the fact that the tiny size of SK helps lower prices. Using cheap CAT5e as an example, is it going to cost more to have 1000m of this reach 10 households or just one? That doesn't even take into account the other hardware involved, nor the fact that less geographical space means less people to maintain.

The United States spent billions of dollars subsidizing the development of our telecoms infrastructure.

This is what happens when you give people money and don't enforce performance. It didn't happen, but that's a whole different can of worms.

Our prices are just completely out of touch with reality.

Considering some things you aren't taking into consideration, I'm only willing to meet you halfway here.

People act like Google is the cutting edge of price fairness, but in reality they're really just passably comparable to many countries with developed telecoms.

We'll revisit this once you're not comparing our prices to a country a little smaller than the state of Kentucky with almost 1/6th the population of the whole country.
