Double Internet speed for free

....hehe, if you ended up here searching for those terms, you are out of luck mate. If you are from India.

I remember the days when we had pathetic internet connections - dial-up provided by the government. Now, we still have pathetic connections provided by big players like even Airtel! And Airtel wants some stupid "Fair - Usage" policy to be put into place. Why I ask? If I pay for the damned net connection, it gives me the right to use it! If I have a fast internet connection, I will want to use it. The service providers have to play fair!

And now I read an article off BoingBoing Gadgets that Comcast users in Pittsburgh, USA will get double Internet speeds for no extra cost. And what speeds you ask - well, hmm err, 15 MBps to 28 MBps.

News stories like this really piss me off. And I am posting this on an ultra-fast high end connection here in the Silicon City of India, Bangalore - a super-fast blazing connection of 512Kbps.

No fair play here!

YKK

There was a time when we used to hunt for "seconds" sale of branded jeans in Maratahalli, Bangalore. We used to always reject the ones with the "YKK" zippers on them believing them to be fake.....

Well....YKK is actually...
