WHO is paying the bills for this to happen.. THE USERS. The ones getting CRAPPED ON, by cheap, low level, Access to the net.
With little to no choice in WHO can be in an area to supply net access, You get MILKED for services. And each service then wants more money so they CHARGE other services for more money if they wish access thru their service.(netfliks, amazon, Youtube,...) So the service isnt being paid 1 time for a service, but many times.
reading the article some form s are NOT wireless.. reliability?? not in this generation..After 5 years 1/2 the plastic in the engine are starting to fail.. Many cars you see it in the mileage changes..
And you dont pay for onstar? Sync?
You really think they only do the higher end, more expensive cars?? Im sorry, I HATE electronics in my car. And I believe the engine computer could do better, IF they didnt add restrictions to it..(yes they place restrictions in the programming)
1. how do they get the data, Wireless, Wired, Collected over time? 2. HOW do they get a vehicle to GOTO a station to have data gathered? Interesting? that your car has Full Ram, and starts running like CRAP, so you goto a Local dealer to have service..And CHARGED to have it read.. 3. UPDATE my cars computer? CHANGE how it runs?? Without My knowledge?? 4. wireless UPDATES??? NO NO NO NO NO... 5. wireless Bypass into my OWN net?? Cellphone service?? WHo is paying for this?
Odds are that it collects data, and then causes the care to hiccup, so you have to take it into the shop, then be charged $50+ to read the data to be sent...from That point, they can do alot of things to you.. Ever wonder WHy the service light goes on, every 5000 miles?
There are a few things that are not stated or even mentioned in any form here.
1. The internet needs a few fixes. one that would track most emails is that every server needs to place a tag on the email passing thru it. 2. HARDWARE back doors. The CIA has been installing hardware backdoors in alot of devices for years. Also the Manufacturers have master resets incase you mess something up, it can be reconfigured. 3. Monitoring the net, no matter how thorough,can not cover everything. There are to many ways to Hide what you are doing or what is being said. Unless you think WOW is copying everything said/typed...Or Mabinogi is doing the same...The odds of finding people doing bad things is not that easy. Other wise we would all be under Puritan laws, and every child molester would be arrested.
For those that dont get it, the internet hasnt changed much, its only being covered up by LOTS of pretty interfaces. The old net is still there. BURIED..under a browser..and pretty colors..
Iv shown a few people that Smart TV's arent smart... 1. They dont update the software 2. they dont update the selections 3. They can do anything with the software, and if you dont what they did...
Its asif they put another hardware part in the TV, that they forget about.. And when they DO remember, the only thing they place on it, is PAY FOR channels..
What Iv shown and told a few, is HOW to use the computer, Roku, Smaller computer to DO with the TV, as they would want..Wonder the net, play games, Watch FREE HULU, get Netflicks, Amazon, Any service the computer can run..
There are so many contracts made in the areas, and they are RESTRICTING who can do what.. That we are OWNED by the state/counties on Who paid WHO, to get the Franchises, in each area..which means..NO competition. The only way to get past all this "WE put the lines it, WE own it, you cant use it"...Is for the gov. to install the new Fiber backbone. This is why, all the Nations advancements have been BACKED by the gov. in the first place.
The Best way I have ever seen for protecting Equipment, when there is restricted space..No where to put it all.. Is very simple.
You place it out in Public, where ALL your employees can see it..Let Everyone see it.. Its like a Large Bike rack.. Let everyone watch it, Dont hide it in the back. Use a couple cameras, and let everyone watch it.
So.. Someone WAS streaming the event? And how did it get to Ustream? Someone re-directed the steam they were receiving? Someone included it in the Streaming services?
This is a live stream, and the signal/data was coming from Somewhere.. So, unless someone signed up to Stream through Ustream and HID/FAKED there information, there should be a Data point of origination.. So WHO sent the stream? That is the info i would want..
"recent FCC data suggests that three quarters of the U.S. can't get anything more than 25 Mbps from just one ISP. "
Number based on Major metro areas.. What I find funny, is the Smaller towns along freeways are serviced by smaller corps(not that small) and are getting BETTER service then in some cities..
There is also another strange fact, is the numbers that they use are based on ALL types of internet..from your phone/sat/cable/phone company... but no one says anything about the Backbone. and WHO owns that. Also that the USA gov. already Paid the Phone companies to HELP install better fiber..
Its all a deck of cards, and they keep being shuffled around, WHO owns Whom..
Another vote for anti PRIVACY.. Wow, doesnt this say something about your ISP monitoring ALL your data? But, can we charge the RIAA/MPAA for the people HIRED to monitor all the ISP data? Anyone want a $40,000 job?
Who here has seen those 30-60 minute PAID commercial TV shows? Have you heard at the beginning that..
"This show contains scenes that some viewers may find disturbing". "Viewer discretion advised." "Intended for mature audiences only." (Mature takes on a double meaning.) "Contains scenes of a sexual nature." (Namely, explicit, bare-breasted sex on a kitchen table, to give but one example) "This programme contains strong language." "This programme contains language." Or "mild language," even. This video, before a show on The BBC is a notable (and hilarious) example of a program using the "language" variant. "Strong, bloody violence." "Mild peril." "The opinions expressed in this show do not necessarily reflect the views of (the network or production company)"
ABC Family has one just before The 700 Club that deletes the "necessarily".
Know what inspired piracy when I was young? 1. Availability..No locations in my area had the program, game, movie, Video, music. 2. Price..If it was Available, it was over priced. I live on a budget, a VERY SLIM budget. Low wages does not give you much choices. IF' I had money I would PROBABLY BUY IT.. 3. Store selection..Stores can not STOCK 10,000 titles. Old and new, and the STRANGE stuff, imported stuff.. And if they Do, its Over priced. A full series of Anime in Japan is $5-10, in the USA you Start at $30.
4. TODAY..Its packaging..We dont NEED the BOX, Shipping, handling, Artwork on the cover, or a STORE FRONT and the utilities and rent that it incurs..That is 75-90% of the pricing.
A company can NOW, go to DIRECT distribution, or thru smaller corps that have NO or LITTLE overhead Charges. When the MAKERS of a game are getting less then $1 per copy of a game selling for $50-70 per sale.. Think of Movie and TV, with Less overhead for distribution. What would it cost to do DIRECT distribution? IF Broadcast TV got rid of all the relay stations, and towers they need to spread a signal and just send up a satellite or 2.. They could send a signal to the WHOLE of the USA. Do they do it? NO!. Why dont they do it? because they have control of the WHOLE system, including most of the distribution. They are getting money from every part of the system.
If you really want to understand this.. Old days the maker of a game MIGHT get $1 per copy, going thru a distribution system. Today..A maker selling a game DIRECT, can lower the prices and make MOST of the sale price in Profit..$20 game can be $10 profit. after you pay off server time and a few other things. depending on How many people buy the game.
Movies in the Old days sent, in the mail, 12"-18" Reels, 4-6 of them..to EACH theater..which is expensive and a PAIN.. NOW they can have a server and send the WHOLE movie over the net or even DIRECTLY thru the mail on Blue ray disks.
Are these companies trying to make things CHEAPER?? no..
