Hardware: delay between cable and air

Interesting that there is time delay between cable and over the air. There’s at least five second delta in the favor of cable. Network neutrality?


HARDWARE: FIOS required update

Sunday, January 19, 2014

 
 
 

Dear Valued Verizon Customer,

We continually strive to improve your 
FiOS® TV service and are making enhancements to create an even simpler and better experience for you. These changes will occur on Tuesday, January 21, 2014,and will cause your Set Top Box to automatically reboot, which means turning off and on. If you experience any issues with your Set Top Box as a result of this automatic reboot, please unplug your Set Top Box and plug it back in. This should resolve most issues.

Some of these enhancements include:

  TV
       
 
Adding more Closed Captioning capabilities
   
       
 
Simplifing your FiOS TV menu by:

  • Consolidating our Customer Support section, making it easier for you to use
  • Renaming your DVR Settings to Configure & Upgrade
  • Allowing you to access all of your TV listings using the Guide View header in Guide/TV Listings
 
Your Parental Controls will also be enhanced to enable you to temporarily turn them off for a period of 4 hours. This new capability will allow you to turn your Parental Controls off to enjoy an evening of TV watching without having to remember to turn them back on later. They will automatically resume after the 4 hour period. To use this functionality, press the Options button on your FiOS® TV Remote Control while watching live TV and select Parental Controls.
       

Thank you for choosing Verizon. We hope these new enhancements help you enjoy your FiOS TV service for many years to come.

Sincerely,

Your Verizon Team

I don’t see anything that I need. So why do I have to upgrade? Time to rethink the paradigms and memes involved.

POLITICAL: Global financiers create political cover

Is War With China Inevitable?
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 12/13/2013 22:10 -0500

*** begin quote ***

Global financiers created the circumstances that have led to America’s probable economic demise, but they don’t want to be blamed for it. War provides the perfect cover for monetary collapse, and a war with China might become the cover to end all covers. The resulting fiscal damage and the terror Americans would face could be overwhelming. Activists who question the legitimacy of the U.S. government and its actions, once considered champions of free speech, could easily be labeled “treasonous” during wartime by authorities and the frightened masses. (If the government is willing to use the Internal Revenue Service against us today, just think about who it will send after us during the chaos of a losing war tomorrow.) A lockdown of civil liberties could be instituted behind the fog of this national panic.

*** end quote ***

You have to look at the financial fraud being pulled by the Fed.

The Chinese are in control of our fate. (Not that they don’t have their own problems.)

So, when these very ugly chickens come home to roost, how will the elite avoid the “french revolution’s guillotine”?
