iPhone 3GS Finally Hacked

BalorTFL Re:iTunes The Real Problem (376 comments)

There's a difference between not supporting third-party applications and actively working to stop their use.

In this case, Apple's doing the latter, and that's pretty evil.

iPhone 3GS Finally Hacked

BalorTFL Re:iTunes The Real Problem (376 comments)

Amarok 1.4.

FTFY

Naturally. From my experiences prior to upgrading back to 1.4, Amarok 2 has problems with megabyte plus libraries.

Ok this is a total thread-jack, but what is a good responsive player than can handle terabyte plus libraries.

AT&T Begins a Trial To Cap, Meter Internet Usage

BalorTFL Re:Upside: Incentive for botnet cleanout. (421 comments)

Which brings up other issues:

- Will AT&T bill for incoming packets? Even those not solicited?
- If you're charged for all incoming packets how do you STOP somebody's botnet from sending you packets? DDoS attacks could become Distributed Denial of Funds...
- Will they charge for ICMP packets?
- How about the packets they use to communicate with and control their modem (which don't even get to the customer's interface)?

From extensive research on the behavior of modern ISP's, I can answer all of your questions with 100% certainty, including the one you didn't type out:

- Yes, Hell yes.
- You can't.
- They will.
- Of course.
- Lube will cost extra.
