Duke Research Experiment Disrupts Internet Traffic

Shanoyu Re:A big chunk? (80 comments)

I think it's actually more significant that it was not 'large'; it was almost an accidental targeted attack.

I mean, sure, 1% is a lot depending on how you want to look at it.

City In Georgia Planning Virtual World For Civic Interaction

Shanoyu Re:Good luck with that. (39 comments)

Nah, you misunderstand Decatur, which is actually part of Atlanta. Decatur disagrees with this notion despite being inside the perimeter, and therefore this is merely one of a number of attempts to be "different" and to distinguish itself as the odd child out-- which it's been trying to do pretty much since being the only town in Georgia to vote against secession during the civil war.

There are even more technological oddities in Decatur that make people want to become Amish, for instance pay parking that requires text messaging to use.

Poll Finds 23 Percent of Texans Think Obama is Muslim

Shanoyu Not news for shocking and obvious reasons (562 comments)

Given that many Americans are completely unaware of what Roe Versus Wade is, who the president is at any given time, or how many justices sit on the supreme court, this result is not terribly shocking. It's easy to pick on Texas but It's sort of silly. All you've discovered is that a more rural state is about 10% off of the mainstream.

Is Anyone Buying T-Mobile's Googlephone?

Shanoyu It's just not a good phone. (454 comments)

The G1 doesn't work as a phone. Why would people buy it? T-Mobile excluded UMA aka t-mobile at home from the G1, effectively making it a paperweight in most suburbs. Combine that with the unattractive price point and the fact that many people who would be interested in this device are currently shackled to the iPhone and you've got a product nobody can use or wants to buy.
