Comcast Using JavaScript Injection To Serve Ads On Public Wi-Fi Hotspots

mcfedr Re: Ask yourself these questions... apk (230 comments)

I don't disagree that hosts file might not be better, adblock is just a very simple solution, for non Slashdot users, my point is simply that I am not interested in working around the problem, I would be more interested in solving the problem at the source.Clearly ISPs are lacking proper regulation, net neutrality is being allowed to be destroyed, by a lack of response to such things.

Comcast Using JavaScript Injection To Serve Ads On Public Wi-Fi Hotspots

mcfedr Re:Hosts file solution? (230 comments)

Everyone agrees that its easily worked around, a simple adblock extension will do it, but the point is rather more serious, that comcast think its ok to supply you not with the internet, but the internet according to comcast.

mcfedr Best change in a while (826 comments)

Its true, I prefer the upstart syntax, but either way, its a damn sight better than those scripts that we had to write for years. Why must people hang on so much to the old when there are so many clear advantages.

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

You just proved the advantage of OSM, you can fix this! If you found the same problem on gmaps, you would be stuck with it until they decided to notice.

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.
