Green Scorecard Puts IBM Top, Apple Last

IBM and Google seem to among those that care.

AT&T rigs net neutrality study

| A new study from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the

Apple and co. pushing for 'fast lanes', widening the digital gap, spying on
people, and doing it all at the expense of the environment. Jolly. At least
AT&T screwed iPhone's party by having activation issues, which are partly a
technical issue.

I, a Comcast customer, support the idea of limiting the abuse of the
bandwidth simply because I use part of that bandwidth. At the moment
this is the only way to have a remotely "Fair" distribution.

As an analogy, London now charges a toll on vehicles entering the
city core. This practice will spread.

Net Neutrality sounds simple AND democratic. But it is not as simple
as it would appear. The Backbone should be net neutral, but the last
mile should be subject to bandwidth restrictions. I suspect there
are some gray areas in between.

This rant sounds a tad paranoid to me.

I use CallVantage and have used the [old] Comcast phone service. There
was a LOT OF GRIEF switching!

Very True - too bad the anti-trust laws have been circular filed!

You are right again: it is a red herring.

What should we do?
