  • Comcast, BitTorrent Work Toward Net Neutrality

    No this is not an April Fool; unless Ziff Davis is up to it.

    Long story short Comast more or less isn't going to interfere with "Bit Torrent". I hope I made DO's day

    wow... i am utterly and wholly unconvinced that this isn't an April Fool's Day joke. this seems impossible coming from Comcast.
    "I'll admit I had an OiNK account and frequented it quite often… What made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store… iTunes kind of feels like Sam Goody to me. I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

      It isn't a joke, I saw an article about it before today.
      A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

          You right it does seem totally out of character for them. Maybe their CEO found religion? More likely FIOS is putting a hurting on their suburb sales.

            Perhaps they were worried about potential lawsuits stemming from what's effectively a packet injection-based DoS attack against their customers
