US Wants Natural Gas As Major Auto Fuel Option
the honda civic CNG is a bit pricey compared to a normal civic and still more expensive then a hybrid (which gets like double the miles) - on normal gas, so you dont have to worry about finding a fueling station on long trips etc.
Anonymous Takes Down DOJ, RIAA, MPA and Universal Music
DDOSing justice.gov for an hr, then going to fbi for another hr.. seems like a waste of bandwidth.....it does nothing, proves nothing, and all it does is piss off a few people.. in fact, now the websites are back up.. so did it even happen? my point exactly.
Data Hogs: the Monsters Carriers Created
AT&T Has throttled me for the past 3 months. Mind you its very easy to get around it so it hasn’t affected me at all but I did notice something very interesting.
My first month I was throttled, I got the “you are reaching 5%” text the day after the first time I ever used Netflix.
A week later I used Netflix again, and I was throttled the next day. (this was at 3.1GB)
Next billing cycle I was back to normal but got my first warning at 3.7GB and throttled at 4.2GB
This last billing cycle was right around the same.
However, my sister – and we live together, have the exact same billing cycle. She this month got the “you are reaching 5%” text at 2.1GB – the day after steaming from HULU.com
That’s right, I got my first warning at 3.7GB and she got hers at 2.1GB – we live in the same house, and have the same account!
There is lots of talk about AT&T being aggressive to all Netflix, hulu, and slingbox users (check xda etc) wehre as if you don’t use the services, they will still throttle you, but not as fast.
I think its funny how i got a warning at 3.7gb and my sister at 2.1gb - all because of hulu
FBI Rejects Freedom of Information Act Request About Carrier IQ
The funny thing here is Carriers already save text message data Without Carrier IQ - and they have the ability to save URL data also since we are on their network. why would the FBI need Carrier IQ unless it was getting more data than that? Pictures we take on our phones? videos? emails ?
