Trying to Be Like Down Under
'NEW YORK - Time Warner Cable Inc said on Wednesday it is planning a trial to bill high-speed Internet subscribers based on their amount of usage rather than a flat fee, the standard industry practice."
I have always felt sorry for those (i.e. Aussies) who have to pay per download amount as opposed to a flat fee. Although I've never been to the Telstra island in SL they made it more attractive for customers by not including that particular SL region in download allowances. Now, just as VR is gaining ground, they want to throttle the intarwebz? Is this related* to the internetz supposedly becoming clogged with users? Does it seem possible that 2010 is the year after next?
Damnation, my flying car is not here, the infastructure is failing all around me, and my older sister has gone to the Darkside. She sent me some kind of right wing email idiocy, so I sent back: George Bush + cronies = Evil incarnate
If she can't see that I feel sorry for her.
This is much more like the past than the future as I had hoped it would be.
*As in a handy excuse to facilitate their lousy scheme.
