Net Neutrality: What it is and what it means to you if it goes away


On 14 December, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) will formally vote to remove Net Neutrality from the internet by removing Title II restrictions from Internet Service Providers (ISPs).  Title II classifies ISPs as a utility and thereby restricts them from price gouging the same as your water or electric company is regulated.  Removing Title II restrictions will allow ISPs to create paid pipelines to and from the internet both for the end user (you) and media providers (Netflix, Hulu, Sling, etc).

Google Pixelbook 72 hour review


I recently received the Google Pixelbook to review and here’s my impressions after using it for 72 hours.

Packaging

I have the base model Pixelbook which comes with a Core i5 processor, 128GB of storage and 8GB of memory.  The i5 processor is definitely overkill for a Chromebook, but it makes this computer fast.  When I say fast, it‘s faster than my Surface Pro 3 computer that has a Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM as well.
