Harvard Professor Creates Paper Accelerometer

qkslvr cheap huh? (87 comments)

So the medical supply company will still manage to charge $1500 for those with insurance, and $5000 without. It's all about the certification labels...

Is Net Neutrality Really Needed?

qkslvr Re:It all comes down to one question. (705 comments)

what is this market force and where can I apply it?

get real, we have two options for broadband. their policies, service and prices are all in close lockstep. If I could punish them with this 'market force' you speak of I would in a heartbeat, but I would also have no internet access at home. there is no third choice

'let the market decide is akin to saying 'let the companies screw the people, because they're too stupid to realize or do anything about it'

Apple Wants Patents For Crippling Cellphones

qkslvr Re:Confirmed (371 comments)

unfortunately, they had to sign the contract with ATT *before* launch day. quite a bit before they *knew* it was a hit, and before the public had even seen the device. In fact, they were a newcomer hoping for a carrier to allow them to use their device on a network that wasn't even configured to accomodate a device capable of the kind of bandwidth and content-rich applications. now the tables are turned, unfortunately none of the carrier networks are open networks. this is why we need network neutrality. desperately.

qkslvr Re:Water is 830 times more dense than air (263 comments)

Thank you. I hate it when someone uses "an order of magnitude" as a synonym for "a lot" just to sound smart.
