This is news to me, but apparently Time Warner woke up the other day and decided their company wasn’t hated quite enough. So they’ve slapped their customers with a brand new $4/month “modem rental fee.” This sent the good folks at Gizmodo into paroxysms of rage, but they’ve harnessed that anger into a guide on how to buy your own damn modem.
