Why does it matter to sign it?
1. If we hit 100,000 signatures by March 15th, the White House is required to provide a response. Now, these tend to be kinda canned and carefully crafted, but basically it forces the Executive Branch of our government to be officially on record with its policy. That's a good thing - especially when they see the strength of support for a particular position.
2. Comcast will be on notice that the public is paying attention. You can cuss in comments all you want or spray graffiti if that's your style, I suppose, but having a big fat number out there quantifies that it's not just a few cranky people who see the Comcast merger as a problem. Numbers matter.
3. Numbers also matter for politicians up for re-election, either this year or some time soon. So, when you sign the petition, make it a point to phone, email and tweet your Congressional rep and your Senators to let them know that you signed it. That begins to create a sense of popularity, and nothing motivates a politician more than a popular movement. Except perhaps Comcast campaign contributions.
4. The Internet matters. That's the real core of this whole thing, of course - the U.S. has lagged in Internet development woefully at the behest of cable giants like Comcast and the handful of huge media companies that they help to prop up with your subscription fees. Our economy needs a boost - and jacking up cable and Internet prices for inferior services seems like the worst way to go about this.
So, just a friendly reminder that your signature counts big-time. It takes but a few short minutes to act like a citizen. Go for it!
Great stuff to watch on your google tv
[DEFCON 21] Google TV or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Exploit Secure Boot
Even though the images are basically the same - the old black and white image took 50 minutes of exposure when Draper took it back in 1880 and the color one took 1 second to take using an Iphone.
I thought that was cool enough to share as I know how you love space related stuff.
They also said no need for a cable subscription either to do this in case you have not seen the series yet and want to check out the first season.
You could watch it on the computer as well and I have no chromecast so I am not sure if you can use that to watch it but if you can don't be afraid to share your experiance if it worked and if you liked the show or not.
I also thought I would post this here as even though I don't root my Google TV's when it can be done I do appreciate What they do especially after being an early adopter and having support dropped for it and have the makers come out with a patch or firmware update in record time to close the holes these guys find yet take a month or more to put out updates to fix actual problems the Google tv community has mentioned having over and over that takes forever to fix :P
I have had people come here asking how to root their tv so basically most google tv users have gotten to the point they looked in to this or at least thought of it.
