Apr 8th 2007 4:49PM Just curious if these are Core 2 Duos or just Core Duos? Or both?
Apr 8th 2007 4:46PM I have a MBP and an HP.. (laptops)
My HP could be used as a defense mechanism because I seriously could probably seriously injure someone with this brick.

Too bad they failed. ;[
Apr 5th 2007 10:27AM Alright first off, it's pretty hard to lay fiber optics, in the ground, in a city like that of San Fran, New York, etc.
Lewisville and it's surroundings actually have you know, grass, in their front yards. We have houses with probably more yard area than San Fran does (and I don't mean this offensively, because I love San Fran) so just imagine how hard it would be for them to destroy some concrete to put the conduit in the ground.
Not to mention, a LOT of the Verizon headhonchos live in Denton County/Lewisville. Both my parents are former employees, and even a crap load of our neighbors work for them. So yeah, Lewisville/etc is a star market for them. Based on that reason.
Some of the uppers at verizon have stated to me they want to provide Fiber Optics to their current customers first. So likeliness of you getting Verizon FiOS before other DSL/phone users is slim to nil.
PS: Dallas Ft Worth metro area IS a huge city. Why not try coming here? Rather than insult it :P
Apr 5th 2007 12:03AM Also, to state, the small down I live in, didn't have "high speed" (wired) access until Verizon installed FiOS, I live in a semi boonie area, which only had wDSL for about two years before Verizon came in. Before that, it was only dialup for us (or satellite.. uck!).
Apr 4th 2007 11:58PM I am sooo thankful I live in that lucky down of Lewisville, Texas. ;] Well, actually a small town outside of Lewisville, but we have FiOS.
