FCC closer to finalizing Net neutrality rules
http://news.cnet.com/8301-30686_3-20077844-266/fcc-closer-to-finalizing-net-neutrality-rules/

1-The first rule requires both wireless and wireline providers to be transparent in how they manage and operate their networks.

2-The second Net neutrality rule prohibits the blocking of traffic on the Internet. The rule applies to both fixed wireline broadband network operators as well as to wireless providers. But the stipulations for each type of network are slightly different.

3-For fixed broadband networks, operators cannot block any lawful content, services, applications, or devices on their network. Wireless providers area also prohibited from blocking Web sites, but the rule is slightly more lenient when it comes to blocking applications and services. The rule only prohibits these companies from blocking access to applications that specifically compete with a carrier’s telephony voice or video services. In each case, the blocking rule also allows fixed and wireless broadband providers to reasonably manage their networks.

4-And finally, the last rule applies only to fixed broadband providers. It prohibits fixed wireline broadband providers from unreasonably discriminating against traffic on their network.

Hey kiddos,

i have a question. Who is reading these 200 million tweets? Same thing with Facebook. Who is reading all this stuff? I have a egomaniac on my facebook friends list that has like 3,500 friends. I know he just does it because he lives on the attention, but for an average guy like me with my meager friends list, it is slowly becoming noise. Isnt this a slight problem for the longterm viability of socially connected sites?

Since the announcement of Google+, there’s been a lot of talk about how the service will integrate games onto its platform. But nothing official has been said.

Based on some recent domain registrations by PopCap Games, it looks like PopCap may be one of the first. When PopCap ports games to Windows or Mac, it often uses “”Deluxe”" in the name. Now it’s registered names with “”plus”".

Here’s the scoop:

The one thing sort of overlooked in the whole VZW tiered data news is that VZW just probably cost itself a huge swath of converts that would probably have switched from at&t when the iPhone finally launches. Instead, now they will stay with at&t with their grandfathered plans.
If you think about it, by grandfathering us in to unlimited data, they have effectively locked us in, in a way that even the 2 year contracts haven’t done. I know for me, so long as I can maintain my grandfathered data plan, I’m not even going to entertain the thought of changing providers.
Love the show.
