you should. I have a tortilla press and it's great. it pretty much goes just like that video, but I use wax paper and I think it sticks a little less. and I go straight into the pan from the press.

GG Internet- Net Neutrality rules to be repealed
the folks at CERN wouldn't make those promises^^ though. just read this one and like I said, the challenge is building out a network of antennas literally everywhere. because that frequency essentially needs to be line-of-sight into your window, which is gonna take a while. it will handoff with 4G to fill in the coverage gaps, which is fine, but the point where it renders cable/fiber obsolete is further off. not trying to be a hater. it's the future. but it doesn't really eliminate the potential for throttling. a 5G provider can have 10x the available bandwidth and still throttle services, ...

GG Internet- Net Neutrality rules to be repealed
lol just trying to help. you're repeating marketing nonsense from scrotes that don't know how photons work. there's a reason 30 GHz signals are mostly line-of-sight. and yea, ten years is generous. if you want to build a network like that, which would require way way way more infrastructure than LTE, from 2017 when the standard isn't even defined, it's gonna take a while. you're also not gonna see 1 GB/s in practice or make fast lanes obsolete. people also wouldn't be spending billions on fiber installations if gigabit 5G was going to dominate the internet anytime soon.

GG Internet- Net Neutrality rules to be repealed
I don't think you followed the discussion. we were talking about competition in the industry, and the ability of consumers to substitute another service when ISPs don't ack right. it makes ISPs less responsive to those much-relied-upon market forces.

GG Internet- Net Neutrality rules to be repealed
I wouldn't be that silly about it. do you know what the 4G specs are' and you don't just get bandwidth for free. shorter wavelengths mean more problems with interference. we can't even do Bluetooth well yet. and remember that at one point nobody thought we'd need 1 TB hard drives either. data use has scaled pretty well in line with the limits of technology up til now. of course eventually it will be trivial to argue about these things, but I doubt 5G is gonna be it. so we've got at least a decade to argue about it.

you mean when the regulations prevented ISPs from doing the things they had done before' yeah, I think people thought that was better. that's why they're speaking out against undoing it. any more brain busters'

lol Neeek brought up the obvious point about apartments. all apartments I'm familiar with have exclusive contracts with ISPs. but I know, if the ISP employs abusive practices, just move to a more free market libertarian coverage area!

just turned on Sky News and they said so far, police can't find signs of casualties or a suspect. sounds like a possible false alarm.

GG Internet- Net Neutrality rules to be repealed
appropriate response because my thought was, I wish politicians would rein in GoogleFacebookEtc with respect to their data selling, rather than giving ISPs the green light as well. ftr I don't think data sales should be banned, but I like the idea of the sellers being obligated to inform consumers exactly what they're doing, and maybe giving them the ability to opt out. I don't mind Google and Facebook as much because I can avoid using them. ISPs, not so much because of that whole competition thing.

GG Internet- Net Neutrality rules to be repealed
you can say that because it doesn't have any technical meaning, but going off this (estimated) cost to transmit a MB/s, I would call the broadband market relatively mature. which makes it interesting when TWC is spotted raising rates like 20% over two years.

GG Internet- Net Neutrality rules to be repealed
rtt: does anybody member when Republicans/Trump undid that rule that made ISPs get your permission before selling your data' the one that Americans supported but ISPs didn't like, and Republicans told us made it unfair because Facebook and Google didn't have to get your permission' which is obviously disingenuous and shows a lack of understanding and makes similar dumb assumptions as the ones Republicans made re: net neutrality/competition/economics' I member. I just wonder if we could draw any connections between these times Washington ignored what the people wanted and made life easier ...

GG Internet- Net Neutrality rules to be repealed
the level of rate increases is good evidence of a lack of competition. nice quotation marks!!! your "transparent" attempt to compare today's broadband prices to a time when broadband was in its infancy was just kind of "funny." I know you didn't cite the "lack" of rate increases as evidence that the market is "competitive."

we aren't having the same conversations because I like to post about how policies affect real life, which is dominated by short-sighted idiots and scumbags. you hop onto Pocketfives and post about your narrowly defined version of how society should work. but the world's ideas aren't always internally consistent, as they can afford to be in your imaginary world. and you know what, if I insisted on seeing this issue as a citizen of my imaginary floating-above-the-fray utopia, as you do pretty much 100% of the time, we wouldn't need these particular regulations either, so we can agree on ...

uhh sure, it's about control in the same way forbidding chemical processors from dumping waste into rivers is about control. amazing we still have chemicals, isn't it!' anyway, net neutrality supporters would like all ISPs to follow the same rules, and for all content providers to have the same access to infrastructure. not sure where you got a different idea.

guess I'll keep waiting. Repubs must have a good reason for trying to change the internet rules over such strong public support for net neutrality. the internet must have been really bad from 2015 to 2017. lmk when you find that link!
