Comcast's Gonna Get It
A veritable Who's Who in the Net Neutrality community have come together to ask the Federal Communications Commission to give Comcast a good spanking over the company's policy of diverting BitTorrent traffic.
The parties, which include groups at Harvard, Yale, and Stanford, filed a complaint with the FCC, alleging that Comcast's policy violates FCC rules enacted in 2005. The FCC established network neutrality regulations in order to prevent providers from limiting customer's access to internet services, and took a hard-line stance on what would happen if companies ran afoul of the rules. However, the complaint against Comcast is the first time the rules have been invoked in a complaint to the FCC.
The parties have requested a temporary injunction to prevent throttling until the FCC rules on the practice, as well as a permanent injunction if the FCC decides Comcast was in the wrong. It looks like after years of insisting they "didn't do it", Comcast is finally gonna get it.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
