    How to use ping to determine distance between computers?

    Posted August 12, 2014 - 9:17 pm

    Can I use ping to figure out the distance between my PC and the PC that I’ve pinged? It seems like it should be relatively simple math since we know the speed (of light, I assume) and the time. Anyone tried this?

    Internet of Things

    Posted August 7, 2014 - 12:48 pm

    The concept of "Internet of Things" seems like the logical next step in the evolution of the Net. But are software and hardware companies actually making use of this model themselves, and what value does it offer them beyond simple automation?

    How fast should an internet connection be to be considered broadband?

    Posted August 5, 2014 - 11:59 pm

    The FCC is looking at new regulations that will govern what ISPs actually have to offer in order to legally call it broadband or high-speed internet. At the moment, the FCC allows 4Mbps download speeds to be advertised as broadband/high-speed, but is considering a change to a 10Mbps download minimum.

    How much can a website’s speed and loading time impact search engine ranking?

    Posted July 8, 2014 - 3:36 pm

    We were looking at changes in our website’s traffic over the past few months and have a disagreement. One member of our staff claims that a forum is probably harming the search ranking, while I personally think that long loading times are having an impact. How much can a slow website impact search engine ranking, particularly Google?

    Why is YouTube threatening to remove music on indie labels from the site?

    Posted June 27, 2014 - 9:40 pm

    As much or more of the music I listen to is on indie labels as it is on “major” labels. Apparently Google is threatening to pull all of their music off YouTube unless the indies agree to sign onto an upcoming streaming service (I’m unclear on whether this means Play Music or something else).

    Should the FCC treat ISPs as common carriers?

    Posted May 14, 2014 - 4:41 pm

    One of the reasons that previous net neutrality regulations were struck down by a Federal Court was that ISPs were not treated as utility companies or common carriers, thus there was no legal authority for the FCC to impose net neutrality standards.

    Will you stop visiting Yahoo websites since they stopped complying with “Do Not Track?”

    Posted May 1, 2014 - 9:02 pm

    Yahoo announced today that it will no longer honor “do not track” requests by users and will ignore the browser setting. I am pretty annoyed by this. I don’t spend a lot of time on any of Yahoo’s sites, but now I’m going to spend less. I consider this a blatant disregard for even a modicum of personal privacy.
