Obama Unveils Plan To Bring About Faster Internet In the US

BradMajors Re:About time (417 comments)

The way this works is that when a city builds its own broadband network it then restricts other broadband providers from competing with the city. A city providing broadband often does not result in more competition.

If Obama really wanted more competition he would make it more difficult for cities to put on broadband competition. Instead he is more interested in seeing government run broadband.

Suggestion to Google:

You seem to want to support racist publications. How about providing some financial support to some American racists? The KKK is a persecuted organization and could use your financial support.

Ask Slashdot: Are Progressive Glasses a Mistake For Computer Users?

BradMajors Re:Optometrist? (464 comments)

Get your optometrist to write multiple prescriptions and buy multiple different glasses for different purposes. When I go to my optometrist he writes me three prescriptions for three different pairs of glasses.

Glasses are ridiculously cheap. There is no reason you shouldn't have multiple pairs.

The Slow Death of Voice Mail

BradMajors voicemail not obsolete (237 comments)

Voicemail is not obsolete. What is obsolete is coca-cola's telephone system.

Their voicemail would be more widely used if Coca-Cola upgraded their phone system so that: voicemail can be forwarded as email, voicemail can be automatically transcribed and emailed, voicemail can be forwarded to cell phones, their phones were able to receive and send SMS messages, etc.

The Slow Death of Voice Mail

BradMajors Re:Work: Don't need it / Home: Still use it (237 comments)

I did similar. My message was "please do not leave a message I rarely check my messages, instead do X". Did not work. People left messages anyway. I instead I turned off voicemail and now they do not hear any instructions on how to leave me a message.
