re: Where do you stand on net neutrality? - Korkstand
[quote]On one hand, we did just fine without it before 2015[/quote] We did [i]mostly[/i] fine without net neutrality [i]rules[/i] before then.

re: US and UK movie studios shut down several Kodi add-on developers - Korkstand
[quote]If Hollywood really wants to force the issue this time I think they have the resources to do it[/quote] They would have to shut down the internet itself. I am a novice programmer at best, and I could whip up a (very basic but functional) file sharing app in a day or two. Trying to force the ...

re: US and UK movie studios shut down several Kodi add-on developers - Korkstand
[quote]Yea I can't imagine Kodi going down being bad for the OTT TV movement.[/quote] If the studios don't offer a better product than what they've been doing, something will always replace whatever gets shut down. I thought maybe they had learned from the experience of the RIAA, but I guess not...

re: Taking... Took the Essential Phone plunge [update #1] - Korkstand
Solid review, thanks for posting and I look forward to your updates. I need to replace my 3 year old Nexus6, and before it came out I strongly considered the Essential. Like you, I read the reviews and changed my mind to the Pixel2. You're making me reconsider given the price difference....

re: Logitech is going to intentionally brick all Harmony Link universal hubs - Korkstand
Glad they're doing the right thing [i]now[/i], but it's a damn shame it took all this blowback for it to happen. There is still the issue of them making poor design decisions to begin with. Does anyone know if their new hubs also require the internet to function?...
