The landscape has changed.
The car will now require an always on connection to work.
Not only that, but you will be committing a crime if you modify your car so that it doesn't require an active internet connection.
Once again, the criminals will be the only ones to have what they want.
So just how "Open" is "OpenStreetMap"?
Can I download the data and set up my own server in case OpenStreetmap closes it's free access?
Want a bigger disk? Buy a bigger disk and put it in your PC!
Want more memory? Buy more memory and put it in your PC!

Want a faster GPU to play games? Buy a faster graphics card and put it in your PC!
The rest of the market, phones, tablets and consoles is all "consumer packaged components" which are not replaceable or upgradeable.
The whole AMD/Intel war would not have happenbed without the PC.
This has led to a mindset where the whole of IT has been defined in terms of "projects" with inputs and outputs and companies want to "buy talent instead of careers" meaning that the company wants your work but not you as a person.
This has then led to companies running most things on "temporary staff" like consultants and contractors.
The effect this has had on IT is that knowledge about the infrastructure, systems, their quirks and how everything works together is not retained in the company and IT operations down to the little details are defined by non-IT people who think in terms of "procedures" "inputs" and "outputs".
So when you see something like "System administrator wanted, has to know XYZ operating system version 10,04 LTR, and the systems HPBS and VLSN" you can be sure that this requirement was written by a non-it person who thinks in terms of "inputs" to a problem.
corn fields are cheap to operate,
Actually, without government subsidies, corn-based ethanol would not be economically feasible fuel.
So, just involuntary and ignorant violations, then.
I see what you did here and more people should be doing this, listen to what words he uses and then think, "why is he using these words and could he be trying to sidestep the truth with the use of selected words."
Because that's that he is doing!
Apple's patents can all be worked around.
How are you going to design around that one Sherlock?
a sensor built into the home button that will allow you to unlock the device with your fingerprint
That's called a "fingerprint scanner", right?
Apple just put a "Fingerprint Scanner" on it's latest iPhone!
Come on say it: "FingerpriNSA canner"!
Yet, Waze is extremely popular in France (the French generally find this law to go against their "liberties").
This has worked up until now because the company that makes Waze does not have any business presence in France, and the French government cannot exercise any pressure against the Israeli company.
Google, on the other hand, does have a business presence in France so these "features" of Waze will likely disappear as soon as Google becomes the owner of the service.
