webword Grandma! (95 comments)

So, when's this kind of crazy a55 speed going to make it's way down to the street? You know, when is grandma going to see wild speed when she's calling the grandkids? 1-2 years? More?

"2009" doesn't mean it makes it to grandma, at least in any affordable sense of the word. 1-2 years. Move along.

webword Netflix for Christmas (190 comments)

I plan on getting my parents a subscription to NetFlix for Christmas. It's like $50 for 6 months.

What's intersting is that 2-3 years ago people said, "NetFlix will die due to streaming and the web!" Well, that day has not come. NetFlix has innovated. Good for them. That's how it should work... Innovate or die!

webword Transparency (155 comments)

If code's too transparent you see right through it to the bloody programmers and their coffee and Monster drinks. In fact, you might see into their dark hearts. You'll see little Guitar Heroes and Battlestar Gallacta action figures. Maybe even, gasp!, some Natalie!

Transparency? Shudder!
