It already is a fortress. In time of war, nations protect their leaders. And the US has been at war for twenty years.

Open the doors of the Temple of Janus, acknowledge the truth. Every day that the US drops a bomb somewhere in the world is a day that the President of the United States should not sleep easy in his bed. One cannot be angry when one nation attacks another, and that other nation responds in any manner it can.

I agree Google shouldn't have omitted the SD card slot from their Nexus series. It's one of many reasons I'll never buy a Nexus device again.

Nobody here is talking about swapping SD cards constantly. What's being talked about is not caring about the capacity of the device you buy. You store apps on the device as there's more than enough space even when they have tiny amounts of memory like 16GB. You store data on one, single, micro SD card. When you run out of space on your micro SD card, you buy a bigger one and copy your data to that.

That way, upgrading your phone is just a matter of swapping the SIM and SD cards. Your data follows you. It "just works". Rather than the inordinately stupid idea, popularized by Apple and slavishly copied by Google, of copying all your data across from one device to the other, either directly, or via the cloud, all umpteen gigabytes of it. That's ridiculous, that's absurd, and manufacturers should recognize that's a massive inconvenience nobody wants.

No, agregation into packages is completely unacceptable.

Then be prepared to pay $19.99 per year for each website, even if you plan to view only one page on that site, because you are unwilling to pay for bundles of multiple sites. Look at 50 different sites one month? That'll be a thousand dollars.
