Freescale's Cheap Chip Could Mean Sub-$99 E-Readers

RedTeflon I was excited (158 comments)

For a moment I was excited, I thought the article was about eepc for $99 soon not an e-reader. I personally couldn't care less about e-readers, while a nice idea I personally dont read enough print material to justify needing anything like that.

Wake me when they make a usable netbook under a 100

The Sad History and (Possibly) Bright Future of TiVo

RedTeflon TIVO isn't dead but its not flourishing either. (490 comments)

I looked into getting a TIVO when I finally sacked up and got satellite TV.
I decided on the $5 a month DVR rental from my satellite company.
True they own it, and I rent it, & they monitor my viewing habits but I dont really care about that
For 60 bucks a month I get to DVR my shows, sure Id love to download them to other sources but its hard to beat the $60 a year value.
And every couple years I upgrade it and get a bigger badder version.
I see my DVR just like broadband internet & my smart phone. Once I have it Im never going back.

FBI Pushing For 2-Year Retention of Web Traffic Logs

RedTeflon Effective (256 comments)

Would this really be effective even if they have a year old log where you went?
So it told you I went to website.com/kiddyporn.html
You go look at that exact site now and it could have unicorns on it.
Just knowing where someone goes is useless unless you log all the data they saw when they were there not what is there now.
Of course you could store all data but good luck with that.

RedTeflon (1695836) writes "Six book publishers have gained an injunction against file-hosting company, RapidShare. The Swiss-based ‘cyberlocker’ service must monitor user uploads to ensure that around 148 titles, many of them textbooks, are never made available to its users. Failure to do so could result in $339,000 fines, or even jail time for company bosses."
