AT&T U-verse service around the Austin Area is spotty at best (Internet and TV). Their 4G service ain't that great either. I think it'll take upgrades they're not telling anyone about to get Gig out of the existing Uverse infrastructure.
This kind of stuff's been around for a while...at least since the 80's that I know of. They don't always have a room though. Sometimes they just get progressively demoted or their responsibilities are reassigned.

War on Toddlers? There's a war I could get behind. Muzzle them all.

I don't know, I still kind of liked it when he got an arrow through the throat on Friday the 13th.
Re: Big. Deal.
That actually sounds like an awesome idea. Dark Forces and Tie Fighter were great games.
Well, that cinches it
The pretty much required Kinect that's on all the time, the restrictions on used games, the blatant invasion into privacy beyond what I normally expect from Microsoft, the crappy price, no backwards compatibility and honestly the console's fugly. I don't mind the "always on" Internet required, I kind of expected that. The only pull they could possibly have at this point would be that the exclusives would have to be amazing. Like REALLY amazing. Like beaming a holographic Scarlett Johanssen into my living room that I could interact with amazing.
If I have to get another console, it'll be PS4. Or I'll just spend my money on my PC...I can emulate DOS on there and play the original XCom on that. How's THAT for backwards compatibility.
You know people will be screaming quotes from the Terminator movies into the phone...
Maybe there's a base on the moon that no one's telling us about....
"Fire the meteor guns!"
I've got OCZ drives and OCZ stock. Hope they turn it around. I think they make some quality products. Kind of wondering if they saw it coming or all their debts hit at once before they had their "oh crap" moment.
A bare metal switch that appears on the network like any other server...are you mad? You don't want the switch to be visible to the average rabble. I'm all for open source hardware, as long as it's cheap and still quality (a combination you don't find very often). However, some proprietary solutions are simply better than open source specifically because the hardware's designed around the software (my opinion).
It sounds like they want to create the perfect network switch that uses only industry standards (free) and open protocols. I can see it happening, even with an L3 switch and routers, but they'll have to work hard to make it robust enough where more people will want them...and I'm not sure if I'd ever want "Facebook" emblazoned across my routers -_-. I wonder who will manufacture them.
Re: Brassed off
Amazingly, you can buy ammo in different locations.
Not sure how they treat their enterprise folks, but there were two reasons I stopped buying Seagate 15 years ago: Their drives fail more than any other drives I've owned, and their customer service feels like you're dealing with the taxman.
To the tune of Camptown Ladies
Fdisk format reinstall, debug, debug....
So the ACLU is taking those companies to task because people are running software that doesn't match up to security standards? Well they could certainly broaden THAT beyond Android.
