top Ask Slashdot: Is It Worth Being Grandfathered On Verizon's Unlimited Data Plan?
Maybe enough for you. For me, I would need to research more to find out what they consider high speed data (which is capped) and 3g speeds (which is what your streaming video is limited to).

Now here's a little item I think you might go for in a big way - Dragonteeth mines. Made in the US and used successfully in Vietnam, I might add. These little honeys won't kill ya', but they're guaranteed to take a foot off. Take a couple of samples, take 'em home, see if you like'em, let me know how many you need. Okay?

Those rocks are for you to look at, not to step on my property and start turning over. Of course, once the cost becomes negligible for a robot to do the rock turning for you, then I'm sure we'll have a rash of home break ins committed by key wielding robots.
top Hacker Faces 105 Years In Prison After Blackmailing 350+ Women
But would you have even bothered to read the story if the poster hadn't hype the ridiculous theoretical maximums?

top Anonymous Hacks Westboro Baptist Church
How exactly would you "dis-allow" this sort of free speech? Can it never be voiced in open, down the street, in another city, even on a website?
I swear, if you big hearted and overly sensitive types ever form a majority on the Supreme Court, we're all screwed. Please tell us you're just 17 years old and are still exploring and developing your sense of morality and justice?!

One data point: VZ Galaxy Nexus reports my "system is currently up to date" as of right now. That is, I'm running 4.0.4.
This makes me...what's the word...anxious. Because every time I read something about JB, I grab my Nexus and look. Shrug. I love my phone. Wouldn't switch it for an iPhone if you gave me one.
(I did switch desktops a couple months ago, because someone actually did offer to buy me a mac pro if I would quit using my windows box.)

I'm not too sure either.
I can't help but think of the time I was in Vegas at a blackjack table. The gal next to me was asking the dealer what this "Insurance" thing was written on the table. He answered, "Well, if it's advertised on the table, by the casino, do you think it's good for you, or good for them?"
