Heartbleed Coder: Bug In OpenSSL Was an Honest Mistake

mcfedr Re:Open source failed (447 comments)

Great, buy some closed source software, and you will have no idea when such a bug is found, at least here once it was found, everybody knew, and a fix was made available quickly, no attempt to cover it up or pass it off as nothing important

Fair price for an unlimited wireless data plan?

mcfedr Unlimited devices (314 comments)

I think a truely unlimited service is the one where you can have a sim in your phone, laptop and ipad all on the same unlimited service. Tethering is all very well, but what about when you dont have one of the devices with you, or the battery is low, and any way it limits your speed.
