Today should be a national holiday.

Best Buy salesman: "Did you see we have 4k TVs now?"
Me: "Yea, I saw that. Not much content for them though. And streaming video on Comcast isn't near consistent enough for what is there."
BB salesman: "What kind of download speeds do you have?"
Me: "The speeds are fine but streaming isn't consistent, I can have 10 - 30meg down and streaming will still stutter once in a while. Maybe when we get google fiber here, then I'll look at it."
BB salesman: "Yea, all the big cities, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, all the big cities have that Google fiber stuff. It's something else, boy I tell ya."
Me:, "Yep, it is."
Then I turn a walk away. These guys should be forced to read some kind of tech news every day. Maybe a reading during the morning standup meeting.

So maybe I was wrong about net neutrality being attacked by the comcast/netflix deal. I admit I don't understand it all. But after listening to +Tom Merritt show yesterday and reading this, I think I understand it better now.
+John Kuchta this guy writes like I would expect you to, if you were a writer.

At Methodist hospital, wife is getting some kidney stones removed. But the real story is the Verizon LTE speeds. I'm still not sure how close I have to be to what tower to get these kinds of speeds, but it sure makes quick work of updating a few apps. This is only the 2nd time I've seen it this fast. Usually it between 5 & 15 down.
Yea, updating apps is all I've used that speed for, so far. I'm sure I could stream at least a couple of movies.

Nope. Most popular app for checking speeds. Called speedtest.

Best Buy salesman: "do you have cable or satellite?"
Me: "cable"
BB: "who do you have it through?"
Me: "what are the choices?" With a little laugh.
BB: "well there's comcast or some have xfinity or triple play".
Me: sighs and shakes my head and walks away, "have a good night".

I think AccuWeather may have a bug somewhere.

+Steve Dew A logical explanation, thank you. I had never seen it before. And I wasn't familiar with 0 latitude / 0 longitude.
