    Free wireless access

    "We want everyone to have free wireless access!" However, you're still going to have to fork over $1000 for a laptop to access it. Hope that's not a problem.

    some thoughts

    really getting tired of the riaa and the lawsuits. it's not making a huge difference according to what i've heard on every bit of news coverage on the subject. how many total lawsuits are we at now anyway? that's why i'm going to be a doctor, not a lawyer.

    didn't bother reading wireless bit cause i'm not even thinking about going wireless just yet. i'll stick to running patch cable and using internet at home for now. i wish they put the money towards something that would help bring broadband to rural areas since bushy boy has a plan to bring us all up to speed.

    printing out ballots, great idea. recycled paper maybe? taxpayers covering the cost of the ink? if you thought old people had trouble with punching holes, just imagine squinting at a screen. are we talking network printing or what? 1 printer for each voting terminal? i'm guessing this will be a state by state change, so it'll take a long long time to be a nation wide thing.
    as an added note, i never even considered blind voters. interesting indeed.

    those are just my initial thoughts. hmmmphhh. where did the smart people go?

    Here's millions of miles of government-financed, government-built, and government-maintained highways. However, you're still going to have to fork over ~$10,000 for a car to access it. Hope that's not a problem.

    You're an idiot, dumbass.

    it isn't a government-sponsored wireless network anyway. It's being created by a "non-profit group" according to the article.
