Re: all that money
It's an odd way to go for sure. Makes no sense to regular ol consumer. I hear about bigger pipes and think we'll get more pushed through them, not less.

Re: the case must go on
Yes, it seems a shame that many court cases end up just clogging the court calandars while leaving parties on the suits often not any better off than they began, although the attorneys are the real winners at least in financial gains.

all that money
All that money going into creating bigger broadband pipes, and some people are talking about throttling the speeds. So ironic. I apologize in advance for the following extreme and perhaps disturbing image, but I cannot help but compare the irony of the situation to when Stalin starved the population living in the middle of his country's breadbasket.

@Ariella: Not to mention that one's estate typically assumes civil liability/debts after death, assuming no statute-of-limitations, notice, or other issues.

Re: the case must go on
@DonBrown Sure, delay long enough, and the defendant may have even died of natural causes! I do know someone who sued a doctor for malpractice and then outlived him by over a decade. As these things do get handled more through insurance than through indviduals, though, even dying didn't get him off the hook.

Re: the case must go on
Delaying tactics seem to be pretty standard for defendant attorneys. Stretching out the time lets the issues get a little fuzzy and in the case where the defendant might not have a strong argument, plays the court system to delay the eventual punishment out as long as possible into the future, while getting lots of billable hours out of their clients in the process of delay.

Let's hope that reason and logic also preveal in this case against the FCC repeal of Net Neutrality. Happy to hear the case will go on.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
