Trick or Treat, HotHardware! Ha! Made you look...Hey, stop looking at me...I'm hideous...No, this is not a costume.
Seems like we need not worry so much about net neutrality and focus more on net functionality. ISPs have taken a page from Wall Street...let's called it Firewall Street...where the mantra is "bandwidth greed is good". I find it interesting that my ISP, Cox Communications, decided this past month to upgrade my account from 25 Mbps to 50 Mbps download speeds. It can't be out of generosity. Someone is going to have to pay for that and guess who that will be.
I have to admit, it freaked me out a little bit when I saw that U2 album in there because at first I thought my iTunes account had been hacked, which, now that I think about it, it actually was :) But I happened to like U2, so it's all good in my 'hood (knock on wood).
Now all we need is to find a correlation between violent video games and domestic violence in the NFL or the rise of Islamic terrorists or the increase in obesity or the spread of the Ebola virus or climate change or...
Oh I see the crickets have returned to HH after the last big giveaway. I get it. I know how it works. Everybody took their balls off the playground because their momma called them into the house. It's back-to-school time anyway, right? Well I've had all the education anyone could ever need, so I'm about to teach y'all how to luck up and win another contest. BEHOLD!!
Thanks to the generous folks a Puget Systems and the EVGA 15th Anniversary Scavenger Hunt !!
Everybody doesn't get to come to work wearing t-shirts and flip-flops. Everybody doesn't have a Zen garden to meditate in or a house designed using feng s[censored]. Everybody can't "Wang Chung tonight". If Google did a Google of itself, I wonder what it would find? Would it see a "reflection" of itself? Would it approve of what it "saw"? Inquiring minds want to know.
Oh, it's a Hot time in the Hardware tonight! Yeah, I'm all late, so what. I'm curious, though. You posted this contest announcement on July 1st, yet you have comments about it dating back to June 24th? Fess up people, who has the hot tube time machine?
Good stuff, as usual. I'm 2.5 geekin' on that Gig BRIX. Looking forward to that mini-itx, water-cooled thing-a-ma-jig with the what-ya-ma-call-it components made by he-who-shall-not-be-named...for the win!
Nailed it! My teen-aged nieces are hooked on Game of Thrones like crack-addicts. I happen to like the series too but there is no @#$% way I would sit down and watch that show with them. I need to brush up on the whole lineage after every episode. It's a good thing they made a "lookback at season 3" because I would be totally lost right now.
