Stop Metered Internet in Canada

No legal action yet, but you can bet political careers are about to end, and the CRTC, Canada’s telecommunications department, will lose in the latest attempt by the telecommunications oligopoly in Canada.

Because people are starting to rent less DVDs, watch less TV, and increasing their bandwidth use to watch online movies, TV, youtubes, the big companies want their billions in revenue through a different means. Continue reading Stop Metered Internet in Canada

Idaho Incentives for Early Graduation Relaxed

Seems as though the rules have changed if you’re a nerd in Idaho. The number of schools who can participate in a program that will permit students who graduate early access to scholarships. before there was a cap on the number of schools that could participate per district.

If you pick any classic Oil Giant vs. Little Guy battle you’ll find a recognizable trend: these babies drag out for EVER. You can pretty much guarantee your mortgage payments for the next 15 years, maybe even 25. The only caveat to the BP disaster is that the spill pissed off people with TV. You can rape rural Ecuador for their oil, but if you do it in the place where TV cameras roll then you’re screwed. Continue reading BP Lawyers Licking Chops
