Does /g/ take back all of the shit it had to say about Steve Jobs before and after his death? Look at how shit Apple is today. Look at how stagnant consumer tech has become. If Steve Jobs were still alive we'd have fucking jetpacks by now.

Same, they bought them from an actual tech company that developped and manfactured them and deserves the praise for their purported quality.

Rest of the stuff is pretty minor.

I'd say that characterization of Job's influence kinda carries over to this second era too. Or it likely got even worse.

I've been doing a lot of research on this and I can conclude that Comcast and xfinity customers are totally fucked, but what about Charter Spectrum?

I'm asking if Charter is going to slowdown access to certain websites, and impose data caps on customers.
>>
>>63439611

So where was this meme concept prior to 2015 when it went into pseudo-effect.

>>63439613

No they aren't slowing access to anything. NN does nothing to address data caps so any ISP could put a 50gb cap tomorrow if they wanted to.
>>
>>63439613
They will definitely impose data caps as soon as they are legally allowed to. I believe there is a condition of a recent merger that they participated in that prevents them from imposing caps for a while. However, they are lobbying the FCC to allow them to impose caps.

As for prioritizing access, that probably will not happen for a little while longer. At least, not until they figure out a way to make it profitable with as little backlash as possible.
>>
>>63439687
The concept of net neutrality was always there. You pay for internet you can access any online website freely. Net neutrality only went into effect to stop corporations like comcast from picking and choosing which websites you visit and what websites get full speed. Here a few years ago Comcast was slowing down Netflix connections almost stopping Netflix from serving there customers, net neutrality plans to stop bullshit like that.
>>
>>63439687
What the FCC did in 2015 was reclassify cable and fiber service so cable and fiber providers were considered common carriers under title II of the communications act of 1934.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communications_Act_of_1934

It's an existing set of rules that had been in place since the organization was founded.

Broadband providers were given a special exception to title II and given subsidies with the hope that they would expand their broadband coverage to more locations which didn't exactly fan out.

What seems to be the best distro for simply running probably just a browser and having a VPN run only for that VM (host is not on a VPN)?

I ask because it seems like you cannot just specify which programs use a VPN or not, so you have to run them in a VM if you want some programs on a VPN and others not to use it.

Lubuntu?

I love Kubuntu. I love Linux/GNU.
But the desktop user experience is awful.

I'm talking mainly about the browser experience, but also the whole DE as a whole.
My main browsers are Vivaldi and Chromium, but I have also tried Firefox.

It's not the spec's fault, you can see they are not bad.
It's not the kernel's fault, the Linux kernel is powerful.

So, why?

Being disgusted by your family members is just a way to avoid inbreeding which produces bad genes, but if you date a big tit girl who is not related to you in any way it wouldn't matter if she's exactly like your mother. The downside is already taken care of. So if you don't have sex with your real family you don't have to avoid it with perfectly fine people with great genes and form.

CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD NOW.

CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD NOW.
I know that there are some of you out there, that have shared their passwords with someone at some point, maybe several years ago.
Maybe it was a browser game website. Maybe it was Facebook, and you shared the password with your girlfriend. Maybe it was the Playstation Network, and you shared the password with a friend so he could download some of your games.
I'm sure you had a good reason to do it. But do you still talk to that person now? Do you still use that same password, maybe on other services too? Maybe you used the same password on something important, like your email service?
You probably think they forgot it. You probably think they will never mis-use this knowledge.
You are wrong.
Change your password.

If I just want something with high battery life and a keyboard, is a chromebook, a tablet with a keyboard, or some other type of netbook the best option out there?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>63438574
I vote Chromebook.

I got a cheap used HP chromebook for about $100, to see how they work, and the battery lasts me about 7 hours of heavy use, about 10 of light browsing, it's insane.

I have a Nexus 9, battery lasts maybe 2 hours of heavy use, less if using a Bluetooth accessory.

Not sure about netbooks.
>>
>>63439250
That sounds pretty decent, actually. Could you replace the battery if you wanted to, or would that hardware become outdated too quickly?

I'm looking for a service or some kind of an algorithm that would allow me to get a random string/password at a given time, see it once and then not being able to see the string/password until a certian time period passes.
It would look like this:
>generate a password/string
>access it once
>don't be able to access it until a specific time period passes

So, does /g/ know of any such service?

Basically, what I would like to do with it is make a script that would change my SSID password and my router's admin password randomly and then unlock itself when a specificed time period passes, using the said service so the keys don't ever get lost, yet can't be accessed in the specified time period.

>https://onetimesecret.com
Kinda like this, but the password is not needed, and instead of the lifetime, I want it to /become/ accessible after a certain period of time passes.
So, that it stores the string in the database, but only makes it available when the time passes.
