Calling the Drudge Report journalism is like calling Fox News journalism ..

An addictive little game. Keep balls from falling into a drain.

While listening to yesterday's Morning Edition this morning I came across a great review on the movie The Magdalene Sisters. Great and frightening stuff - it clearly seems to be a movie to watch.

Catch the trailer.

Verizon is dismissing AT&T's recent DSL offer.

A few months ago Verizon began to offer a fast DSL service for $30 a month as part of a bundle with a stand-alone price of $35. Cable modem service has become more expensive over hte past year with most monthly bills averaging about $50 a month. SBC and Verizon are both pushing DSL with lower price points and perhaps we will see a price war like we did in the mid 1990s on dialup access.

Canada, South Korea and Japan have dramatically lower broadband access charges ($15 to $20 a month) - it will be interesting to see if broadband drops to the what many regard as a psychological boundary for mass adoption of the service -- anywhere from $20 to $25 a month.

It would be nice to have more competition to force the lower prices nationally. People will certainly sign up for AT&T's service - but only in areas not covered by current cable modem service or Verizon (and possibly) SBC DSL.
