4Mbps to 25Mbps

"4Mbps to 25Mbps"

That means I'm already not getting Broadband. LOL.

Of course the fact that Cox cable charges for 1mbs what other ISPs charge for 5-12mbs is an over priced joke on it's low end customers.

Good cop, bad cop?

Who is on the boards of all these big corporations?

Is this Google attack on Microsoft just a set up for the purpose of making us feel empathy towards Microsoft in order to soften the blow-back from computers users/population/us when Microsoft begins the ramp up to introducing Windows 10 as well as OS as a service?

'If you see a stylus, they BLEW it' – Steve Jobs. REMEMBER, Apple?

tempemeaty
Bronze badge

Interesting but I hope Apple hasn't lost the plot

Having to keep a stylus with the device is an additional material realm burden and takes away from the experience. If a technology is sufficiently advance such things shouldn't be needed to enter data. Only exception I would consider a stylus for is the fact that fine point pressure and angle control is needed for artistic endeavors on the device like emulated paint brush and pencil work.

It makes sense. The deity ISIS married the deity Osiris in Egyptian mythos. Now Google's Earth satellite company(DigitalGlobe) can marry up with the NASA Osiris capsule program in space like a reliving of the deity marriage experience once again. Just keep a watch out for Seth... LOL.

Google Translate is hilarious. I've copy-pasta'd enough Japanese into Google Translate to know their technology to translate things is far far away from ready. What it usually gives me these days is unintelligible combinations of English words that add up to nothing.

Norks: FBI's Sony Pictures' hacking allegations are 'groundless slander'

tempemeaty

I'm not taking the NORK Bait™.

All the hackers wanted was money. That was their thing in the communications with Sony before the media brought up the NORK idea in it's speculations.

Of course the hacker and the US Gov are opportunistic predators so both glomped on to the NORK thing.

(just my useless two cents)

"The real problem remains tho: Region locking. Remove that and you'll see your sales go up."

It's region locking that stopped me from getting into gaming. The only games I found interesting and possibly fun were ones for sale only in Asia outside the US market. I guess I just don't think like the game companies say I'm supposed to. Their loss. I found other interests.

FCC commissioner trying to change the argument?

Netflix pays for infrastructure because the ISP's are unwilling to build the upgrades needed to keep up with the rest of the world. IMHO, FCC commissioner is looking for excuses to collude with the ISPs. I Think the fully corrupt FCC commissioner is looking for an excuse to shift blame and pave the way to kill net neutrality allowing the fully corrupt USA ISPs have it their way.

"About 1% of us"

I agree. ~1% is true for Linux global OS market share statistics.

Sorry if I wasn't completely clear. I mean that in all sincerity. When I say "us," I mean those who read The Register. I could be wrong but I get the sense that the readers of the The Register don't all fit the statistical norm.

When I saw the images of them using their iThings instead of the product placement Surface-Things I laughed for 5 minutes.

I would love to see another company make a product which gives you the kind of experience that makes it hard to put down or stop using it. Why is Apple the only company that can even approach doing that?
