Amazon's Plan To Storm the Cable Industry's Castle

RawGutts Carriage negotiation (85 comments)

It would be nice if they didn't Data Caps on service, but since we are dealing with massive companies, I just don't see the Data caps going away. Unless they get regulated again to put them in check. Producers will most like have to deal with Comcast Wholesale network services group to negotiate a contract. Something like Nexflix has done to prevent the throttling.

Amazon's Plan To Storm the Cable Industry's Castle

RawGutts Data Caps (85 comments)

The US data caps FORCED on the consumer by the cable companies will have the users thinking twice. Do I use in the in-house streaming provided by Comcrap that will cost me no data or do I go outside source for content that will burn up my data usage at the end will either get me a much bigger bill or the Cable companies will drop me for high usage.

US Government Shutdown Ends

RawGutts Interesting (999 comments)

It is interesting that a good amount of you here think Obamacare and ACA are two different ACTS. They are not folks, they are the same thing.

EGM Magazine Shutting Down

RawGutts Print is out (70 comments)

Most of those gamer magazines have 90% advertising ads in them and takes like 5 minutes to read anything worth while. Most of the time when I pull some of them out of the mail box and start reading/walking back to the house, I am done by the time I hit the door and it's in the the recycling bin.

Your Right to Link

RawGutts RawGutts writes  |  more than 4 years ago

RawGutts (879317) writes "The Right to Link: the right to create, forward and follow links.

Why do we need a campaign to protect the right to link? Well moves are afoot in the marketplace that could lose our Internet freedoms that we have taken for granted till now. Most of us aren't even aware it's happening. These threats to our freedoms are coming from 'old' media, especially the print newspapers, at the expense of the 'new' media search engines, bloggers, social networks and any business that uses online information. These changes could even threaten our ability to function as a democracy by restricting access to information.

Fun for Troops

RawGutts RawGutts writes  |  more than 6 years ago

RawGutts (879317) writes "Hey everyone just wanted to get this out for our troops. Maybe the /. community can help them out. Some may not like our government policy and others may love it, but the bottom line the troops are stuck over there until they come home. Let them have some fun while over there.

"Fun for Our Troops is a nonprofit organization (501c3 status pending). Our mission is to provide high-tech, interactive FUN to the men and women serving abroad to protect our freedom, in the form of gaming systems. We believe that our contributions will aid in stress relief, relaxation, and the overall well-being of our troops. Our intention is for each recipient to not only share his gift with other service men and women but to pass the gaming system along to a member of the unit that will remain abroad after his/her safe return home."
