44% of operators will offer home automation through gateways

Anyone allowing their ISP to run their home automation system has rocks in their head. I wonder if the ISP will provide a link directly to Google/Doubleclick for a fee, so Google can monitor, record and sell reports on their customers home automation system's activities.

Dish broadband

They claim they can do voice services as well. Wouldn't the latency be too high?

Re: Dish broadband

It's probably just a joke.

Their caps are just horrible, 5 gigs plus 5 "bonus" gigs on their $40 plan plus a $10 "equipment fee lease" and a 2 year commitment.

The $70 plan comes with a 15 gig cap and the extra 15 gig "bonus".

Totally ridiculous!

Yahoo board has approved a massive $1.1 billion...

And so begins the death of Tumblr.

Even if Yahoo doesn't kill it with idiotic changes, they'll eventually shut it down like they do with all their services.

They would call that, "Improving services" improving services=removing certain features!

So basically, you're right on the money.

Really?

Why did you guys post a crackpot link on how radios are going to kill us?

Maybe it's not so crackpot. The usual tinfoil hat icon is missing too! Déjà the tobacco industry?
