Civil Rights Groups Divided On Net Neutrality

Red_Chaos1 Re:How about tell them of the benefits (127 comments)

Stop using the water analogy. The technology is fundamentally different. Using QoS, we can control the priority of packets which are on a shared line. That is impossible with water droplets in pipes. If it were possible, I would support it. Because 1. I'd pay less money for "hard" water for rinsing, but a little more for "soft" water for the washing mashine 2. water utilities would be much better run, with better services, tiers, etc.

It's a fine analogy for what is needed, stop being a worthless pedant. You mention QoS. That's fine and great, but it needs to be an opt-in thing that the customer requests, not something we all have to cope with because $ISP is busy putting the squeeze on another content provider for more money for another McMansion for all the execs and board members despite the fact that the end user is already paying for the content and its delivery.

I don't see anyone complaining about socializing (through legislation) the grocery chains to ensure that they build stores in places which some social justice warriors...

Oh shit, here we go with this dumbassery...

...deem to be necessary. We know how such central planning works out, and we as a globe have decided to leave grocery stores to the free market. Despite the fact that poor rural areas don't have hipster eco expensive grocery stores. Oh the humanity!!!

Except grocery stores already do that by themselves, because a customer is a customer, and they would only be punching themselves in the nuts by refusing to build in poor areas. Swing and a miss!

Taken to their logical conclusion, your arguments would have us forcing every style of every grocery store to build in the stupidest of locations.

Where you're going is hardly the logical conclusion, and as I already pointed out, your grocery store analogy is a lame duck that doesn't fly.

What I don't get, is if social justice warriors and socialist thieves (from the common good) think it's so important to have grocery stores in poor rural areas, why don't they get off their asses and actually do that (by commercial or co-operative or whatever means available).

You must be a 1%er or a shareholder in a major ISP or something. That or you're just that special kind of stupid. You're not even trying, you're just spewing bullshit and insults. Do you really expect anyone to care one whit about what you're saying (besides me, obviously) by doing that? I'm guessing not, you're probably just here to rip juicy ones into cyberspace and get high on the fumes and ride the unearned feeling of smug superiority (even though you're not remotely superior in any way that I can see so far).

Why is it necessary to force OTHERS to do your bidding??

Well, you see Corky, when people refuse to do the right thing of their own volition, it eventually becomes necessary to force them to behave in the appropriate manner rather than keep going on like the selfish and narcissistic jack-offs they are and would otherwise continue to be. Maybe if people didn't take their self absorption and selfishness to such ridiculous degrees then such regulation wouldn't be necessary.

(through the genuine threat of violence through law).

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA(long inhale)HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... HAHAHAHAHahahaha...whooo, hahaha, man, hehe, that was a good one.

Oh, and btw I think my analogy is valid for purpose: if you think that the internet is more important than nutrition for the purpose of given everyone a fair start in life, get a grip on reality man. Get outside your comfort zone. If you spend time trying to help people who are mentally STUNTED for all aspects of human life, even the ones outside the intarwebs, then come back and try to repeat your arguments.

Looks like I was right on the money about selfishness, narcissism, etc. You're a sad person, and not nearly as intelligent as you'd like to think you are, this much is clear. Luckily you're a dying breed. Fight it all you want. Change is happening all around you. We don't need nor do we want people like you. See ya around Corky.

Android 5.0 Makes SD Cards Great Again

That makes two of us. nexus devices will either need to come with 64GB minimum and not have a usurious price-tag, or add the mSD slot before I'll even bother looking at them.

Hong Kong Protesters Use Mesh Networks To Organize

Red_Chaos1 Is disrupting these networks not... (85 comments)

...as simple as jamming all the frequencies? Jam the WiFi, jam the LTE, GSM, CDMA, whatever they use there. Boom. No more network. It only works because the people in power let it work, or are incompetent. Mesh networking isn't some immune savior of the people.

Cisco Opposes Net Neutrality

Red_Chaos1 Re:This is not about network neutrality (337 comments)

There is a big difference between a customer requesting/setting up QoS, and an ISP deploying "fast lanes" to squeeze more money out of consumers and content providers.

AMD Preparing To Give Intel a Run For Its Money

Red_Chaos1 Re:ha ha (345 comments)

You could argue it's all anecdotal, but the evidence says you're incorrect. A similarly clocked PII would encode faster than the AMD counterpart. Same for video, gaming, etc. It's not like it was terrible, but it wasn't as good as its opponent either.

AMD Preparing To Give Intel a Run For Its Money

Red_Chaos1 Re:ha ha (345 comments)

I've been in the AMD camp for ages, but I have to admit that even the K6-2 was not all that. It was decent, but it still suffered a weak FPU, which became apparent when MP3 made its big hit.

"Smart" Gun Seller Gets the Wrong Kind of Online Attention

Red_Chaos1 It's people that write shit like this... (1374 comments)

..."In a crude, cartoonish scrawl, this person drew an arrow to the blurred image of a woman passing through the photo frame. 'Belinda?" the person wrote. "Is that you?" ... "I have no qualms with the idea of personally and professionally leveling the life of someone who has attempted to profit from disarming me and my fellow Americans," one commenter wrote.""

That help give gun owners a bad image/name. Stupid motherfuckers.

Then again, how do we know this wasn't purposely put out by an anti-gunner? I hate tossing conspiracy stuff out there, but there's no way to really know.

SSD-HDD Price Gap Won't Go Away Anytime Soon

Red_Chaos1 Re:not really (256 comments)

Yes I have, and I fail to see your point. Larger SSDs in general do not best my 60GB Corsair drive by any significant margin, which rather dampers this idea that a bigger SSD will always be faster. It really is not a matter of capacity at all.

SSD-HDD Price Gap Won't Go Away Anytime Soon

Red_Chaos1 Re:not really (256 comments)

Only to a certain point does capacity increase equate to a performance increase in SSDs, and the gap closes very quickly. SSDs don't have things like spindle speeds and areal density to work with to increase throughput, nor do they need them.

My 60GB Corsair Force GT hits a few MB/s under 500MB/s in write speeds, and near 520MB/s in reads. At those speeds the difference between drives is in a few MB/s only. I'd be surprised to see a significantly larger SSD significantly increase speed over that. My 120GB OCZ drive only manages it by a couple MB/s.

SSD-HDD Price Gap Won't Go Away Anytime Soon

Red_Chaos1 Re:RAID? (256 comments)

IIRC it would take 5+ high end HDDs to match the read/write speeds of a decent SSD. Add to it that a RAID 0 has no safety so if 1 drive faults, the whole thing is done. A single SSD (like my Corsair Force GT) will r/w at ±500MBs. You just can't beat that right now.

Netflix Gets What It Pays For: Comcast Streaming Speeds Skyrocket

It was never a question, nor open. The answer is no. It is painfully obvious this benefits Comcast and hurts everyone else.

Should Microsoft Be Required To Extend Support For Windows XP?

Red_Chaos1 No. (650 comments)

We all had ample time to get the fuck off of XP by now. All the crying and whinging is stupid. Update your damn OS already. It's not Uncle Microsoft's fault you didn't get your ass in gear and set up an upgrade path sooner.
