Comcast Tells Government That Its Data Caps Aren't Actually "Data Caps"

Dan667 come on Google Fiber (335 comments)

everywhere Google Fiber has set up shop has completely changed the landscape of what these legacy internet providers offer. Google's rollout cannot happen fast enough and even if comcast matches it people will still dump them due to these types of policies.

TSA Prohibits Taking Discharged Electronic Devices Onto Planes

Dan667 Re:Actually makes good sense (702 comments)

sad anyone has the misconception these kinds of policies help. The goal of these policies is to make people who don't understand how easy it is to get whatever you want on an airplane to feel safe. You are not safer (it is just security theater), and you are just enabling your rights being taken away by thinking this is helping.

Germany Scores First: Ends Verizon Contract Over NSA Concerns

Dan667 economic might more powerful than spying (206 comments)

problem with the short sighted spying and lets spend crazy money on the military misses that economic might is certainly more important. You cannot pay for stupid expensive spying and military programs or twist the arms of other countries if you are not economically strong. Not only is the spying program Constitutionally wrong it is weakening the US in real and lasting ways.

the flaw in your reasoning is that making hydrogen will never improve. It will and you can change the focus to just fixing it.

Why Snowden Did Right

Dan667 Re:Snowden may be right - but he still broke the l (348 comments)

I think you are naive in how to get things actually changed. Those abusing their power and moving the US closer to a 1984 novel nightmare is a valid reason to not follow the "rules". It is unlikely any other method would have changed their behavior.

Ever notice that it is Musicians when it comes to some deal the riaa wants? The vast majority of the money would be coming out of the riaa's pocket and that is good news to weaken them.

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

Dan667 mental illness is the problem (1633 comments)

The last mass violence spree was with a knife. So he is going to do what, ban knifes? Ban anything that can be used to hurt people?

The elephant in the room is that mental health services have been slashed for decades and even when people are identified as being unstable there is little that is or can be done to help them before they become violent.

Dan667 gop efforts to vilify obamacare backfiring (723 comments)

every time they bring up obamacare there are almost instantly stories of private health insurance refusing to insure people or grossly overcharging families. The gop appear to be out of touch with what is important to people.

Apple, Google, and Amazon's Quest For One Remote Control Is Futile

Dan667 binge viewing, House of Cards (130 comments)

the current tv landscape has already been disrupted. It is only a matter of if networks and cable come kicking and screaming or become irrelevant. So far, looks like networks are choosing to become irrelevant.

Why No One Trusts Facebook To Power the Future

Dan667 backlash has started against facebook (218 comments)

the young people are leaving facebook and soon the jackals will start to smell blood. None of the reasons listed to make it hard to leave facebook are really that sticky. It is not like they own your house. Next big thing and people will stampede out of facebook like they did myspace.

Amazon's Fire TV: Is It Worth Game Developers' Time?

Dan667 Re:Amazon mysteries (88 comments)

My 2 cents is that walled gardens even when successful have a shelf life. If you were trying to milk the most money out of your product and have the longest lifespan I would open it up and take advantage of all the users that are willing to develop or add content for free like Roku has done.
