Well congratulations Marvel, ya did it again… ya made movie history by breaking the global box office record of 1 billion bucks in 11 days! That record was previously held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which surpassed the billion dollar mark in 12 days. The only record to break next is James Cameron’s Avatar which holds the highest grossing movie of all time of 2.7 billion which should be easy considering that movie was basically a longer version of fern gully.

Finally, we officially have to say goodbye to Net Neutrality starting June 11th. The FCC plans on replacing the net neutrality rules with next to nothing. Instead rules stopping internet providers from dividing the internet up into fast and slow lanes and prioritizing their own content, the so called “rules” allows internet providers to block, throttle, and prioritize content if they want to. The only thing they do have to do is publicly disclose any of this behavior. Personally, I really hope internet companies don’t block useful information in whatever area they please. For instance, folks that can afford the internet with access to all content is great while those that can’t are stuck with limited access to only certain websites. It’s a mess…
