Apple Pay Competitor CurrentC Breached

klui Re:This whole CurrentC thing is reminding me of Di (265 comments)

DivX and DivX ;-) were a pun on CC's misguided DIVX.

I think it's an appropriate association and for people who think CurrentC or its future incarnations is a bad idea should associate it with DIVX.

"CurrentC, the DIVX of the 21st century."

Will Fiber-To-the-Home Create a New Digital Divide?

klui Re:DOCSYS? (291 comments)

You can get more throughput out of fiber over copper with WDM where different wavelengths of light can go through a single piece of fiber without interference. Sure, a WDM upgrade would be expensive but not as expensive as laying more copper. The upgrades would be done at strategic places where they would be easy as opposed to cable where the infrastructure is inherently shared in the last mile. Fiber brings the congestion points to locations that are easily upgraded if more speed is required.

French Provider Free Could Buy US Branch of T-Mobile

klui Re:Um... good for whom in the US? (111 comments)

Free is the French ISP whose business model influenced sonic.net in the US--no limits/caps, all features included for one price. If Free continues its disruptive model, I think that would be a good thing for consumers.

Goodbye, Ctrl-S

klui Re:Never used this keystroke (521 comments)

If you've been using computers for 30 years, you should have used it but not in this article's context. My first thought was XON/XOFF was being deprecated, as in ^S/^Q in a TTY.
