- AnandTech reviews Intel's Xeon W. Spoiler, the final page is titled "Conclusion: Is Intel Serious About Xeon W?" (AnandTech)
- New York has kicked out Charter Communications for failing to meet agreements and this writer at Tom's Hardware is terrified that he may need to use Verizon Fios or [shudder] DSL. Because he has so few choices. And the government should do something about that. (Tom's Hardware)
Listen, bub: I live somewhere where the government did something about that. Result: I have been waiting nine years for them to upgrade my connection from DSL. I can't get cable, because they're going to run fiber - eventually. I can't get fixed 4G, because they're going to run fiber - eventually. My options are DSL or [cough] satellite - in a city of five million people.
And the DSL infrastructure hasn't been upgraded at all during that time. Because they're going to run fiber - eventually.
The only worse thing than a monopoly is a government-run monopoly.
- It's just a scratch.
Picture of the Day

Nonsense--you could also move!
Yeah, cities and states need to stop granting cable and internet companies monopolies. Where I live now I only had one choice, but fortunately it wasn't a bad one. In September I'm moving a couple miles away, and I'll actually have two options, one of which is AT&T and the other is the company I'm already using, so I'll probably stick with them.
