FBI: North Korean Hackers "Got Sloppy", Leaked IP Addresses

synapse7 Re:Countless Comments on Prior Articles & Now (219 comments)

Seems like there would be logs upon logs of suspicious activity (or patterns) from both the time spent connected learning the system / figuring out whats what, and time spent leaching off 100TB, right? If that is how it happened as we're told. I also doubt Korea, but there has got to be a shit-ton of traffic logs that point somewhere.

James Bond has been dead to me since the casting of Daniel Craig. IMO Christian Bail would be a good James Bond.

Which Android Devices Sacrifice Battery-Life For Performance?

synapse7 Re:all (108 comments)

Any phone that can run a game is sacrificing battery for performance. If you set the cpu limit to 800mhz you still will be able to "work" from your phone and will gain 12-24 hours of battery time.

Netflix Video Speed On FiOS Doubles After Netflix-Verizon Deal

synapse7 Google next? (204 comments)

I occasionally view instructional videos from youtube at the low default quality, the videos will play for roughly 10-15 seconds and then stop. I have to pause the video, wait for it to buffer and continue to do this to get through the video. I'm on a 60mb service which tests out fine, I can download over 7MB/sec but can't reliably stream 480p video from youtube.com.

Anybody else experiencing this with youtube?
