Presidential signing statements are bad – only if Bush did it
Rick Moran

*** begin quote ***

President Obama has issued more signing statements at this point in his presidency than George Bush. And yet, the crickets are chirping in the media and on the left for all the stink they’ve made about it.

*** end quote ***

Of course, there’s no liberal bias.

Signing statements on their face are unConstitutional.

The fact that we have different standards for different sides of the political aisle.

TECHNOLOGY: MiFi 2200 portable EV-DO router

MiFi 2200 portable EV-DO router

Technology is the summation of hardware and software. It’s VERY very expensive. This unit intrigues me because what COULD it replace?

Home cable internet service? The Verizon Wireless Broadband USB plug? Cell phones?

The solid trade offs are: ISPs charge 50/month — with hidden caps. The VWBBIE is 70/month.

The soft trade offs are: one or more cell phones. The darned home land line.

The question is what are the true costs of the “MyFy”? Capital, operating, 4 hour battery life.

Home has two computers on a Wifi. But only one user … me.

Would it support Skype, Gizmo, SIP, and such?

Lot of questions.

Biggest problem is I have no clue as to what’s my home byte count on a daily or monthly basis.

And, I hear the Sprint commercials with unlimited usage.

Too many questions and an unknown TCO.

Argh!
