The Daily Show revisits net neutrality

Wow, just wow. This has got to be one of the best Daily Show clips I have ever seen.

It deals with the issue of Net Neutrality. Offering a great simple explanation, while still being funny as ever with "I'm a PC." and making fun of Chuck Norris jokes.

Please share this with everyone you know!

digg - Music

digg - Does Your iPod Play Favorites?

Well, since the comments section of digg is basically always a giant flame war of people. It's a great place to find stuff to talk/think about.

I don't even bother discussing musical tastes with people. I fail to understand why people make fun of people for their musical choices. If they like it, they like it. That should be the end of the discussion. Just because you don't like a band/artist, doesn't mean everyone who does has "bad taste in music" or is "gay".

And don't even get me started on using gay as a derogatory term. Yikes!

digg - World Firefox Day

digg - World Firefox Day

Well, thought this was rather cool. Refer a friend t Firefox, if they download it you get both of your names somehow put into Firefox 2.0

This has started basically a flame war between Firefox and Opera users, heh. A lot of people seem to think that the Mozilla people will ruin Firefox by putting all these names in it. My guess is that it will simply be something you click on in "Help" that will get a page from a server to display the names.

Anyways, so, about this war between Firefox and Opera:

Let me know if you understand my simile.

Firefox is like a TV, a HDTV, with all the inputs you could ever use, and more. You can customize it with any DVD player, set-top box, amp, speaker system or anything else you want. A lot of people love it.

Opera is like a TV, a HDTV, with a built in DVD player and built in "surround" experience. You COULD customize it with some of the above mentioned devices, but that's not what it's meant for. A lot of people love it.
