Time Warner gives America metered internet

Scott
Pirate

meh

down here in the arse end of the internet (NZ) we've always had data caps - either as described in the article for cable plans, or more commonly for DSL having your speed cut down to dialup speeds when you go over your cap.

I wouldn't have thought this would take off in a country that has almost unlimited choice and so customers will just change to a provider that still offers all-you-can-eat plans.

icon, cos it's obvious what the 5% are doing :D

How to destroy 60 hard drives an hour

Scott
Boffin

eleven and a half grand?!?!?!?!?!?

When a hammerdrill + a bench vice = ~$100-150 (if that)

OK - might take slightly longer than a minute per drive, but at that price you could buy two, and hire two monkeys.... err.. I mean students to do it.

Not Paris, 'cos I wouldn't want to drill her, even for $11,500

Google mounts Chewbacca defense in EU privacy debate

@Solomon Grundy

The reason the R I Ass. A can 'track' you is when you get assigned an IP address it's time/date stamped in a log.... along with a bunch of other useful info.....

So they say at time/date blah, this IP address STOLE OUR MUSIC!!!! and then go to the ISP and see that at time that little.old.granny@isp.com was connected with that IP address...
