Why America Won't Match Sweden's Cheap, Fast, Competitive Internet Services

jon3k Re:not complicated...monopology (346 comments)

Cool, prove me wrong. Go deliver 100/100 service to the continental US. The only way you're going to deliver bidirectional 100Mb service is by running fiber to every house in the country. You don't have to be a LEC or an MSO to run fiber. Call your municipality, get the easement agreements and the pole attach agreements and run the fiber yourself. Let me know how it turns out. If you deliver 100/100 service to my doorstep for $40/mo I'll be the first one to sign up.

About 0.1% of the world has access to those speeds. I don't know what you're smoking that you think that constitutes "basic internet service".

BitHammer, the BitTorrent Banhammer

jon3k Uh (429 comments)

If your job depends on Internet access, buy a MiFi? Unfortunately you don't have any right to stop someone else from using a public hotspot however they like.

Ask Slashdot: How Would You Build a Home Network To Fully Utilize Google Fiber?

jon3k Huh? (279 comments)

Since when is running a few Cat5e/Cat6 drops "substantial structural or wiring modifications" ? You could have a drop in every room in the house for a couple hundred bucks. Or do it yourself on a Saturday. This is really, REALLY easy.

Why America Won't Match Sweden's Cheap, Fast, Competitive Internet Services

jon3k Re:not complicated...monopology (346 comments)

If you can deliver $40 100/100 service, go for it. Anyone can put fiber in the ground and on poles. I'll pay for it. Everyone would. The reality is you cannot without massive government subsidies. In the US it would be hundreds of billions of dollars. Google's already trying. So unless you think Google also has a monopoly and is trying to screw you out of more money, then your argument kind of falls apart.

Fortune.com: Blame Tech Diversity On Culture, Not Pipeline

jon3k Bullshit. (342 comments)

Blaming corporate culture is bullshit because most women from birth are told to not go into tech. The problem isn't graduating millions of female computer scientists and then they all get their first jobs and quit because of misogyny. They never studied tech to begin with. The problem isn't a office policy one, it's a cultural and societal problem that discourages women from pursuing careers in tech from about the age of three when they're given their first barbie doll.

Ask Slashdot: Multimedia-Based Wiki For Learning and Business Procedures?

jon3k Not a Wiki (97 comments)

You don't want a Wiki, you want a Content Management System (CMS). I'd suggest Joomla. There are lots of extensions for delivering video.

Torvalds: No Opinion On Systemd

jon3k Re:This thread is only for ignorant argument (385 comments)

If you're another lemming who doesn't understand why there was nothing wrong with init and the problems systemd is trying to "solve" are non-existent and you are informed enough about systemd to actually understand its problems, post below.

Apple Edits iPhone 6's Protruding Camera Out of Official Photos

jon3k Re:Parallax. (425 comments)

Plus, take the images and invert the colors. You can clearly see editing work. Basic Photoshop detection 101. Even more fun when you have a shitty TFT screen that makes every glaring error even more obvious.

Not only is there nothing there when you invert the colors (see here, inverted and zoomed for your viewing pleasure), it's very likely it was a computer generated image and not even a photograph to begin with.

Early iPhone 6 Benchmark Results Show Only Modest Gains For A8

jon3k Re:power consumption? (208 comments)

It's why I never understand comparing Android and iOS benchmarks. We run benchmark software on them, compare the two, then run completely different operating systems and applications on top of them. Android benchmarks routinely show better performance than IOS. But everytime I use an Apple iPhone it "feels faster" and is completely stutter free.

All Your Content Distribution Are Belonw to Akamai

jon3k jon3k writes  |  more than 6 years ago

anonymous dude (691256) writes "Shares of Limelight Networks Inc. are trading down $2.23 (35.01%) to $4.13 this afternoon as the company has lost a patent suit filed by rival Akamai Technologies Inc. Limelight had been doing pretty well, in a sense, having succeeded in knocking two patents off the docket. But a jury ruled today that Limelight violated the remaining patent, No. 6,108,703, titled "Global Hosting System," which covers the basic architecture of a content delivery network.

apache + rsync = lawsuit"
