I get TCP hangups on my smartphone — sometimes when I visit sites it loads halfway and doesn’t finish. When I switch to 3G/4G mobile only, the site finishes loading. This may be because of my Xfinity TCP/IP connection. Maybe it’s trying to send everything in order using TCP when it does this?

Why isn’t Spectre staying on top of the news cycle?

Seems like this is more serious than they let on. Rogue actors or state actors could be demoing this and we wouldn’t know. It’s very hard to trace. UPDATE: Spectre/Meltdown has previously been detected in the wild– First Fully Weaponized Spectre Exploit Discovered Online
