Maccast Loop – Episode 039
Back from Macworld Victor and I set out to discuss some of the fall out at almost 2 weeks after the Stevenote. Luckily for us you jump in and the conversations take a turn for the better (what else is new, I know). We talk Apple TV, iTunes Movie rentals, how to get a new copy of Tiger, and whole lot more.

The Maccast Loop is your opportunity to become a part of the Maccast. Each week the hottest topics and issues from the Maccast will be discussed and you will have the opportunity to give your feedback LIVE. Join host Adam Christianson and producer Victor Cajiao (Typical Mac User Podcast) as you become part of the show. Share your thoughts, opinions, tips, tricks, and knowledge of all things Macintosh. The Maccast Loop completes the circuit, closes the loop, and brings the Maccast community even closer.

Thanks to my audio engineer and producer, Victor Cajiao (Typical Mac User Podcast [iTunes]) and to all the listeners and participants who make this show possible.

    Sorry guys, I’m a bit behind on my podcasts… Michael King, you are SO right to be upset concerning the data caps telcos / ISPs are trying to implement. For the past 15 years, whenever there’s been a rate hike they’ve promised Congress and the people that would be “using” this money to increase the efficiently of their networks. This meant upgrades to increase bandwidth, most notability upgrading to fiber.

    Have they done this? NO! The profits have been used to line the pockets of the executives. They should be investigated by Congress. I urge everyone to write their state’s Utilities Commission and their State Attorney General’s office. They’re basically double-dipping. They’re getting their rate rates, and then charging us for having small pipes. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but if I was, this would be a perfect plan. They finally see the internet is the future, and going to make sure they control it. The people need to take it back. You’re going to see more data sniffing violating privacy laws, and more traffic shaping to prioritize traffic to how they wish.

    There are even potential plans to “own” networks. In other words, like Time-Warner may have a subset of the internet that only their customers can use. Want to do a search or download material owned by Disney? Sorry, you need to pay a surcharge or a royalty to access “that” part of the internet. It’s not that far-fetched. I’m a network engineer and have been in many meetings where things like this were discussed.

    I’ll get off my soapbox, but if we don’t do something now, the internet will eventually become nothing but a money-making spyware entity. You can bet on it.
