CNN Anchors Caught On Camera Using Microsoft Surface As an iPad Stand

jon3k Re:Could have been worse (236 comments)

It's also just about the only device to come out of Redmond. Microsoft hasn't historically been in the hardware business. What are we comparing it to the Zune?

Chinese Hackers Mess With Texas By Attacking Fracking Firms

jon3k Re:The reverse is also true. (104 comments)

The difference is it's state sponsored. The US Government doesn't use our tax money to hack into Chinese businesses and then give all the trade secrets to Microsoft or General Electric or whatever.

Watch batteries were supposed to bring "winding" to a decisive end, except for that subset of people who insist on carrying around a mechanical timepiece.

FTC Sues AT&T For Throttling 'Unlimited' Data Plan Customers Up To 90%

jon3k Re:Inevitable outcome (179 comments)

Absolutely agree, but it will stop the behavior and stop anyone else who might be doing something similar. Their legal, accounting and processing costs alone will be in the millions.

Why CurrentC Will Beat Out Apple Pay

jon3k Re:Not a chance (631 comments)

I will, I'll just get a second checking account and link it with CurrenC. Then I'll keep a small amount of cash in it, however much I think I need. Then if I need to add more I take out my smartphone, open my banking app and move money instantly between accounts. No big deal.

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

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.

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"
