Mom and daughter SUE Comcast for 'smuggling' public Wi-Fi hotspot into their home


Re: Hope they win.

Hope they win too, not because of the probably unfounded bandwidth and electricity burden. The only argument that should be needed is that running a public access point in their own home without permission is simply not on. And they can tell Comcast to bugger off without needing a valid reason.

Coming to Blackphone: An app store loaded with privacy tools


Re: if Blackphone gets big it'll give government flunkies an apoplexy

Facebook's ONLY failure: Expectations management


Re: Like with cars and houses

You are putting money on the ability to generate future income - which is basically what an investment is.

Assets are worthless by themselves as they are ultimately expenses (say hi to depreciation), the worth comes from what the assets can be used for and how are they managed to generate future income.

Cars are not investments and neither are houses (it is the land that can appreciate in value): they both lose value over time. Buy a car and in the end you'll be guaranteed a loss when you sell it.
