I note the juxtaposition of this and the article titled "Reports Shows UK Police Improperly Accessed Data On Citizens Thousands Of Times".
Reports say Law enforcement abuses and mishandles personal data of citizens. Legislatural reaction: Give law enforcement virtually unlimited ability to collect such data, with zero oversight.
Reports say citizens violate copyright significantly less if given reasonably-priced, convenient access to copyrighted materials, while draconian measures do nothing. Legislatural reaction: Write harsher laws to punish citizens criminally for the most minor copyright infractions.
My only possible conclusion: THIS AM BIZARRO WORLD!
As a certified Moron in a Hurry, I assure you that I looked at the poster and the first thing I did not think of was "Oh hey, Frito-Lay is behind this T-shirt!"
In order to level the playing field and mitigate confirmation bias I showed only the poster to a colleague, a more junior but very talented Moron in a Hurry, and asked him what he thought. He agreed that it never occurred to him that the food company had anything to do with it.
Anyway, sorry to snark and run, but I'm in a hurry.
Oh, hey! I'm on Sonic. AT&T owns the wires, Sonic rents them and resells to a local ISP called Omsoft.
Omsoft imposes neither data caps nor artificial bandwidth restrictions. When you call AT&T, they'll sell you 6mb down, 768k up. Possibly 12mb down (for more money). And they'll restrict you to those numbers. Omsoft just opens the floodgates; I get what I get depending on line quality and distance from the nearest switch station or whatever it's called.
...I had more about Omsoft, but this was supposed to be about Sonic. I'll just say if you're on AT&T in the Sacramento/Davis/Woodland area, look them up. I've only dealt with Sonic indirectly, but as far as I can tell, they're friendly and helpful in their own way. And OBTW, no data restrictions.
I have to wonder how that will affect the aeronautics industry, including its impact on flight simulation and training. Databases are updated constantly, and a lot of them include satellite photos. Especially in simulation (you don't need to fake the environment you're flying in when you're really flying in it). But nav databases include accurate, up-to-date geospatial information, and critically so.
(Also, "phenomenon" is singular; whomever wrote that paragraph wants "phenomena".)
