Time Warner asks, “How Much Bandwith Do You Need???”

3 06 2008

Time Warner Bandwith Cop

“Lemme see ya license……Any reason why ya bandwith measures 20GB in a 5GB zone???”

Just when content delivery services (amazon unbox, youtube, netflix, iTunes, etc.) have reached the point where they’re offering somethin’ worth downloading, Ars Technica (Conde Nast’s latest acquisition) reports Time Warner is in the stages of rolling out metered and capped internet service plans. What does this means for the majority of us you non-Bit Torrent abusers? Maybe the end the days of freely loungin’ on the interwebz are over, well if Time Warner has their way it is. eFlux Media gives a hint at what some of the new, tiered internet service plans from Time Warner will resemble.

Interested in how much bandwith you use? Tech Republic has a number of handy tools to help you understand how much of this precious, finite resource you waste!!!!

RIM)

 

With anticipation high for the release of Research In Motion’s latest smartphone, details have surfaced, via Infosync, regarding possible release dates and pricing. AT&T subscribers will get first crack at the handset at a cost of $350 with each of the 3 other major carries to follow in September (Sorry for your Verizon and Sprint folk that just jumped on the Curve).

In a move to bolster and make use of the Bold’s enhance multimedia features, CNET, recently acquired by CBS Networks for 1.8 Billion dollars, has leaked some of the early detailsregarding the Bold’s ability to somehow sync with iTunes. An application called Blackberry Media Sync will make this possible. For us currrent Crackberry addicts, this was feat many of us have been doing for a while now using apps like iTunes Agent.
