 Comcast is now 6.8 megabits here in Sacramento.
I just had to download an updated device driver
from ATI, and the download speed clocked in
at about 6.8 megabits.

    What does ATI, a graphics chip/board designer,
have to do with your download speed?

All he's saying is that he downloaded "something" (doesn't really
matter what it was) from "somewhere" (doesn't really matter where it
was), and got 6.8 Mbps throughput during that download. The
"something" happened to be a device driver and the "somewhere"
happened to be ati.com. He didn't say ATI had anything to do with his
download speed; they just happened to be hosting the file he
downloaded.

Poor excuse for jumping for a chance to criticize without thinking.

    Think of it rather as a lesson in clear expository writing -
which should exclude ambiguity.
