Groups Urge FCC To Block NBC-Comcast Merger

thelanranger Re:I'm not worried (160 comments)

I don't use anything in that list. Also I have FiOS. Comcast is getting it's ass kicked around here so badly they don't even call themself comcast anymore and I don't use Hulu and am on the verge of canceling TV all together. Personally I find this merger to be completely irrelevant. Look at AOL/Time Warner. What did that accomplish? NOTHING. Nothing changed. I don't use AOL, I don't use Time Warner. Nothing changed for anyone that did. Unless you're a stock holder no one cares. Be glad that they're not asking for tax payer money to keep themselves from going under. Neither NBC or Comcast is doing well right now.

Why Engineers Don't Like Twitter

thelanranger OR...OR... (460 comments)

It's because they're too short to provide any useful information. Also, it really bothers me that CNN does 1/2 of it's reporting by telling you what happened via twitter. d/c.

Nintendo Wins Lawsuit Over R4 Mod Chip Piracy

thelanranger Re:Games from different regions? (146 comments)

But someone like MS would include a tricky license agreement with the product which says something like "By opening this box you agree that you did not actually purchase this hardware but are only leasing it indefinitely from Microsoft Corporation" blah blah blah which allows them to break it remotely or take it back from you if you harm it.
