FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler Says Switching ISPs Is Too Hard

tgmarks More like impossible (145 comments)

Just as the brief says, it's usually a monopoly in the area. For broadband service it's not hard for me to switch, it's impossible. There is no one else to switch to.

The Bursting Social Media Advertising Bubble

tgmarks Re:Tuning it out? (254 comments)

my guess is that adbloc isn't really an issue (unless firefox and chrome make it a default plugin).

Like Google would ever make AdBlock a default on chrome. Ad revenue is still their largest revenue source.

US Postal Service Discontinuing Saturday Mail Delivery

tgmarks Why not approach it like private enterprise? (582 comments)

When a big company looses money, they don't react by cutting their services. They adapt by changing their product and cutting their costs internally. The postal service has a huge amount of work to do internally.

tgmarks Firmware? (615 comments)

You could always try upgrading the firmware before replacing the router. A lot of people never think to do that and it can make a big difference. A new router would always have way newer firmware.

Microsoft Surface Pricing Goes Toe-to-Toe With Apple iPad

tgmarks No More Line Between Tablet & Laptop (521 comments)

I feel like this is the first product that finally removes the line. Even the best tablets before this didn't run the same OS and a laptop or desktop, and while the RT may be argued to not remove that difference, the Pro does. Not that the keyboard will be as good or the experience the same, but the product has finally arrived that removes the line. You can now install the same program file to your desktop, laptop, or tablet.

Mastercard Denies Plans For BitCoin Credit Card

tgmarks Re:shocker (167 comments)

Not 1 single bitcoin user would have gone for such a product. This story had fake written all over it from the beginning.

This is dead wrong!!! Many Bitcoin users would be all over this as Bitcoin is not accepted at many places and this would be a very simple way of transferring the money and spending it.
