Tracking Down Wi-Fi Interference?

lordkuri Re:report it to the fcc (499 comments)

+5 Interesting? really?

FYI, consumer WiFi uses unlicensed radio spectrum, and is subject to FCC "Part 15" rules. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Title_47_CFR_Part_15

This almost always means that the device is required to accept any interference that may be present.

Sorry, you can call the FCC all you like, but I'm quite certain that the nice receptionist that answers the phone will gladly take down your name and number for "someone to call you back" and then promptly toss it in the trash.

Sheriff Sues Craiglist For Prostitution Ads

lordkuri Re:Suing the telcos next? (695 comments)

I think the term for a telco in this context is a "clear channel" provider or something like that.

The term you're looking for is Common Carrier

DMCA Exemptions Desired To Hack iPhones, Remix DVDs

lordkuri Re:Jailbreaking (188 comments)

The act of "jailbreaking" an iPhone is not illegal, unless the _owner_ of the device has agreed to some TOS/EULA disallowing such an act.

No, No, NO! Why do people continue to perpetuate this?

Violating a company's EULA is not illegal. Period. Full stop.

1. forbidden by law or statute.
2. contrary to or forbidden by official rules, regulations, etc.
3. Informal. illegal alien.

Tell me which law or statue I'm violating by doing something that isn't allowed by an EULA.
