Kevoco Re:Jailbreak (335 comments)

or Motorola - the NFC on the Moto x does pretty much everything I like, including Moto Skip for NFC unlock, Google Wallet for payments, and I can also mess around reading and writing to NFC tags

Toyota and Tesla May Work Together Again

Kevoco 2015 Pluggable Prius - Only 11 miles on EV Mode (51 comments)

Maybe Tesla can help them to bump that number up by a factor of 10 - otherwise, it almost a joke.

Why the Public Library Beats Amazon

Kevoco I love my local public library network (165 comments)

I don't mean their LAN, I mean the network of libraries with a shared online card catalog and the ability to reserve a book and then receive an email when it has arrived.
My local library is part of BCCLS - - 75 Public Libraries in NJ's Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Passaic Counties

With so many libraries contributing to the inventory, I rarely find myself needing to purchase a book from Amazon. I am an Amazon Prime member, I buy lots of other stuff for sure.

Verizon's Accidental Mea Culpa

Kevoco Re: Verizon's customers (390 comments)

"it's Verizon's customers who are causing all this bandwidth usage"
Let's pause to re-read that: Verizon's customers. Ah yes, those people who pay Verizon $x each month for y mbp/s of bandwidth. Those foolish people who actually expect Verizon to deliver on what is being paid for.

And then Verizon passive aggressively acts like the problem is not of their own making.

Steve Wozniak Endorses Lessig's Mayday Super PAC

Kevoco Re:"The Internet" (209 comments)

I seem to have missed when there is an "us". However, The Internet is a real thing and "we" all use it in one way or another. If you cannot get behind the idea of, then long live the status quo, but don't be ranting about how the man is screwing you over when you spend your time bent over and spreading.

Steve Wozniak Endorses Lessig's Mayday Super PAC

Kevoco Re:Major source of corruption is Tax Code not PACs (209 comments)

How do you think the tax code go that way? The tax code (along with other corporate friendly, constituent unfriendly) and timelimited legislation is the prize that the lobbyists seek. Lobbyists spend pennies to get back dollars for their corporate clients. You should really familiarize yourself with the rootstriker and mayday concepts and then the idea will make more sense.
