Feeling Better and Net Neutrality

It’s been 5 days since I became ill and two days since I found out it was H1N1 and after taking tamiflu for the 3rd day now, I am feeling a lot better, it really clears up the symptoms very well; actually it just hides the symptoms like most over-the-counter cold/flu remedies but it’s stronger! I did find out after I received them you’re supposed to try and get them within 24 hours of contracting the virus as they’re most effective then, I was only 48 hours out. Annoyingly though my nose is still driving me nuts, it’s better but it’s still all flu-like – should be enough detail to explain what I mean there.

On other news, the American government, on the same day Obama stated to the UN “… Those who used to chastise America for acting alone in the world cannot now stand by and wait for America to solve the world’s problems alone …” has self-declared themselves the regulators of “net-neutrality” and whatever that may mean now: more specifically, it’s the FCC wing of the government.

But what is net-neutrality now? Part of the speech yesterday actually turned into a debate about what it means; the phrase has been thrown around so much since 2006 when it was first used in the public domain that its actual meaning seems to have been lost. So much is the abstraction around the statement now that it was actually brought up to mean Apple cannot restrict apps in its own App Store.
