FCC Fights For The People - More Power To The People

It's understandable why the cable companies are not to thrilled with this proposal from the FCC. This is basically a slap in the face telling them "you don't get to keep cheating customers out of their hard earned cash". And it's true, they do steal our money. Considering some have few alternatives if any, people are force to have to pay for these set top boxes in order to use the services they are already paying for. This is the equivalent of paying McDonald's for the wrapper around my burger in order for me to get it but if I don't pay for the wrapper they won't give me my burger.

Its the same with cellphone companies like MetroPCS who charges me a fee to pay by phone or online and in person but that one is the cheapest. In a time where everything is paid online we have to pay in order to pay a bill? How is that even legal?

It's time for the cable companies to free us from their set top box restraints. We already can buy our own modems and routers for Internet service, I don't see why I can't do the same with a cable set top box.

To be honest though to a certain extent I don't care since the only reason I have cable its because it makes my Internet bill cheaper. Somehow its cheaper to have both Internet and cable than Internet alone. Go figure. Still, if I every really wanted to use it I shouldn't have to pay a fee to use a service I already pay for. Imagine if phone companies required us to pay a fee to connect the phone to their network. Wait, they probably do, never mind.

The whole "pay a fee to pay your bill" thing has always irritated the crap out of me. I really hate doing business with companies that do that. Just include it in your price, don't make me feel like I'm getting (even more) ripped off just to pay my bill!

Some internet companies, like CenturyLink, require you to use their modem/router (at least here in San Diego). That's one of the reasons why I went with Time Warner Cable instead.

It Don’t Matter If You’re Black Or White, Or Does It?

Oh the irony. As if being openly racist without out it seeming to be some kind of stigma such as the fan crowd that is currently tailing Trump the Destroyer and the current racial debacle that is plaguing the this year’s Oscar nominations, now we have to decide if the guy who is to play the role of one of the most famous artist in the world should be Black or White because, well, the guy he’ll be portraying was born Black but died, well, White.

Yes, apparently there is a movie in the making based on a true story event involving Liz Taylor, Marlon Brando and Michael Jackson and yes it’s the role of Michael Jackson that is in the middle of this debate. Why? Because according to the story below the actor supposedly being cast for the role of Michael Jackson in this supposed true life story is White which is confusing the heck out of people because Michael Jackson is, well, Black, except… he looks White. Why? Well apparently the “King of Pop had vitiligo, a condition that causes depigmentation of parts of the skin, which usually results in white spots on the patient’s body”.

http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2014/09/michael-jacksons-skin-turn-white-got-older-2/

In Michael’s case it happened gradually but apparently more evenly and thus looked more like his skin changed color as oppose to just showing spots here and there till he fully changed. I remember rumors of him purposely changing his skin color through chemicals and such in order to feel more connected to a world that was mostly controlled by White people. Either way by the time of his death Michael was basically White so now we are faced with the dilemma that if a movie about Michael Jackson was made, or a movie involving Michael Jackson, such as this rumored one, that if the role required a actor to play Michael Jackson after his 1995 album History then it would stand to reason the actor had to be, well, White, unless a Black actor who happens to look White was found I guess.

Right now the rumor stands that Joseph Fiennes, a White guy, is to play the role of Michael Jackson in an adventure with Liz Taylor and Marlon Brando when the 9/11 terrorist attacks were happening (go figure how this is even a story that should be told but I digress). I am personally a bit at odds with the choice for Michael’s role because it’s confusing to accept so easily. Yes it makes sense the role should be a White person but it’s Michael Jackson, a man who’s carried started and exploded, not when he was White looking but when he was Black looking and people remember him more when he was Black looking.

Talk about the ultimate Black/White face controversy and at a time when White people are showing an amazing pride towards being racist and the Oscar’s facing the potential of several boycotts and bashing from every direction.

What do you think?

So tell me again how this doesn't go against the point of the Supreme Court's decision? It's shocking to think that the concept of discrimination should be a right to some Americans. The hypocrisy of such a bill makes us a weak nation. Its ironic that Republicans blame Obama for what they claim is the weakening of our nation when it is them wanting to turn back time to when only White rich people had rights that will make us weaker. Because this kinda of mentality can only come from stupidity and sadly that can't be cured with education. 
ATLANTA (AP) — Months after the Supreme Court effectively legalized same-sex marriage, lawmakers across the U.S. are pushing bills that would give businesses and some public employees the right to refuse serving gay couples because of their religious beliefs. [...] Georgia lawmakers have pressed on with a bill to allow business owners to refuse products or services for same-sex couples planning a wedding, and another that protects state employee...

Dash Nailed Clueless 2 Audition, Wait She Was Not Auditioning?

And now we know why she did so great in the movie Clueless, well, because she's clueless. Look, it's her own fault for being ignorant at the facts about inequality and the fact that the only way Black people could get any kind of acknowldgement in this country was through the creation of TV shows, channels and awards for themselves. Yes, we are all Americans but we are also Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, British, Australian, African, Chinese, German, etc. It's not something you simply dismiss because you're nationality doesn't describe your heritage. 

Do me a favor sweetheart, when this country accepts me for being capable of speaking 2 languages, preferring lechon over pizza and not being White, then maybe we can all call ourselves Americans all the time. Till then take your own advice "If there are opportunities, seize them and be prepared for them and be the best if that's what it takes. If you have to be extraordinary, then be extraordinary" cause your movie career leave a lot to be desired.

Gun's Don't Kill People, Which Is Why Gun Laws Are Meant For People Not Guns

I'll say it again, I am all for the 2nd Amendment, our right to bare arms. But I'm against ignorance and stupidity when it comes to those who own guns. If you can't see the logic behind preventing mentally ill people and idiots from acquiring guns so easily and requiring those who can legally get them to be required to be trained to own them, like a person with a drivers license is expected to pass tests and training, then you fall under the stupid and ignorant category that shouldn't own guns or even have an opinion about it.

Guns don't kill people, stupidity and ignorance of people does, that's why laws are made for people, not guns.

More Speed, Less Memory Hogging

I'm over Firefox. It would take Chrome become extremely unbearable for me to even reconsider Firefox. But I can't deny sometimes Chrome makes me wanna scream to the high heavens. Granted sometimes it's not the browsers fault, sometimes extension developers are lazy and don't update their extensions often and don't stabilize them enough to work with the least amount of bugs possible. But it still drives me crazy when I have to force shut Chrome thought the task manager because all of a sudden it grabs a hold or a large chunk of my memory and sticks to it like crazy glue.

So, I'm hoping this new algorithm will make it better and I hope some memory issues will also be addressed.

I’m having a hard time understanding why the US is being left out of this update. Beyond the idea of greed (wanting gullible Americans to by next model phones rather than provide updates to current versions) why would the US not be included in the update to Marshmallow 6.0 for the Moto E which was originally not even supposed to happen at all?

Motorola has announced that the Moto E 2015 will receive the Marshmallow update in a few countries. However, the list does not include the U.S. or UK at this stage.

+Derek D Let me correct you here. Marshmallow is optimized to run on 512MB of ram and dual core phones. Also if a Moto E in Brazil can get the update, I'm sure as hell the US version can handle it just as well. I'm not saying that Americans are gullible as OP said, I'm just saying that US carriers are greedy for money and they don't allow updates for this kind of devices, just so they can sell more flagships.

So, how does one be racist towards White people? I didn't even know you could do that. After all, what have White people suffered? Stupidity? They are not even ashamed of their past, of their ancestors, of their history. For crying out loud, we have a Presidential candidate blatantly saying racist things and still gaining ground, all while being White.

In The End PC Gamer Exclusion Will Always Come Back To Bite You

Just ask Rockstar who originally did not intend to make Grand Theft Auto 5 for PC and now its one of the most popular games on PC, especially thanks to the mods, NetherRealm  will eventually figure out that leaving out PC Gamers is still a costly mistake at a time when PCs are still a thing regardless how much PS4 and xBox One's are sold. After all some of the best games started out as PC games ans still go strong against their console counterparts (such as COD and Battfield) and some games can't even be played on conoles (such as StarCraft and World Of Warcraft).

They will eventually come to their senses. They always do.

PC players are being left out, as Kombat Pack 2 and the XL Edition are only for PS4 and Xbox One.

It's annoying how much gamers stick up for each other... unless its just a pc specific issue. Then there isn't boycotting or complaining. Everyone else is having fun playing Mortal Kombat and Batman but ignore discrimination and brokenness on PC. But if they can get away with it here then consoles are next.


Later this year:  New AAA title comes out, publisher too lazy to get a good port for Xbox or PS. Broken as heck, "cinematic" 20fps, crashes every five minutes. PC and other versions silky smooth.

Regardless Of Specs I can't Get Passed My Dislike For TouchWiz

Sorry but I have had 2 Galaxy phones and returned both. It's TouchWiz, Samsung's damn Android overlay. Its annoying with all its constant popups when I remove the back cover, pull the charging cable out or even when I open certain apps. I can't stand the settings menu, everything is where is shouldn't be and a pain to get to. I don't like that my theme changes are limited thanks to TouchWiz. That's why I prefer pure Android and why I prefer Nexus phones.

Certified Chatterbox - PC Geek - Opinionated - Open Minded - Techie
Introduction
My name is Charles, I'm a regular Joe who has a passion for technology, mainly computers. I love taking them apart, putting back together, installing software to get that new PC smell and testing new ways to make it better and faster.

I spend a lot of time reading up on the latest and greatest in tech, watching many podcasts and Youtube channels that talk about tech. I am also a gamer, mainly a PC gamer and my current passion is the Call Of Duty series and Left 4 Dead 2 (with Titanfall being my next passion).

I have my religious beliefs but am not blinded by the misguided views of some Christian extremist who on the one hand say God loves everyone but on the other they promote hatred towards other people, mainly LGBT and in some cases as in the past Hispanics and Blacks. I may not be gay but I have plenty of family and friends who are and I care about them. I believe in their rights to be treated like any human and I will do my part to fight for their rights because:

"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing" 

As for me, I will not sit around and do nothing. I will use what I have to do something. Right now I have my chatterbox skills and my PC skills. For now that will have to do.
