Google Reduces Its Nexus One Termination Fee

dtzitz Re:Early Termination Fee (56 comments)

I was wrong, google is not billing this as an early termination fee. They are calling it an equipment recovery fee. I am set for my phone for the next two years (thank you $350 ETF from big red) but I would like to see someone challenge the new fee in court.

Google Reduces Its Nexus One Termination Fee

dtzitz Early Termination Fee (56 comments)

I apologise in advance if this has already been discussed in previous stories: An early termination fee is for the early termination of a contract. Now I only skim the contract that I signed when I just bought my smart phone (HTC Eris) with Verizon a few months ago but I don't recall a contract with google or HTC. Only Verizon. How can Google charge an ETF when I don't have a contract with them?

Obama Looks Down Under For Broadband Plan

dtzitz Re:We're looking to AUSTRALIA for advice on broadb (387 comments)

Verizon hasn't ripped up streets because there are ways to run conduit without digging trenches. I do agree that you 'could' have the different ISPs sharing the same rigid conduit. The conduit would have to be new to avoid all the problems you have with trying to stuff more wire into existing pipes(I know it looks like it would fit but trying pulling that for miles after a couple of 90 degree bends) I think you are oversimplifying things and getting a little squirly with the car analogies. You don't think there is some sort of multiplexing that could be done at the last mile for the $small_ISP of your choice to lease the last mile? I am genuinely ignorant here and would like to know.

A Tale of Two Windows 7s

dtzitz Re:Revisionist History (770 comments)

"Despite all who liked Vista - and there were many - no, it was not a good operating system if you use simple consumer metrics: a) it frustrated people, b) it caused many working Windows systems to no longer work, c) it created confusion without end." let me try: Despite all who liked Ubuntu- and there were many - no, it was not a good operating system if you use simple consumer metrics: a) it frustrated people, b) it caused many working Windows systems to no longer work, c) it created confusion without end.

Google Takes On Amazon With Own E-Book Store

dtzitz The price matters (152 comments)

What they charge per book matters. I am not sure how many people you are going to get to buy an e-book for the same price that they could pick up a physical copy at their local book store or less if they bought it used on amazon. I am going to hold judgment until I see some prices.

The Battle Between Google and Facebook

dtzitz Re:Why not have both? (202 comments)

"Zuckerberg envisions a more personalized, humanized Web, where our network of friends, colleagues, peers, and family is our primary source of information, just as it is offline." These groups can aggregate information but they are not really a primary information source. As an idea it sounds a bit like digg but in practice digg doesn't exactly function that way.
