I am a nerd.
I want a black and white screen 1280x1024, with a physical keyboard and some type of navigation.
Sure I could use it to read "catch 22", but the real world use is to have all the service manuals and wiring diagrams where I can take them on site and use them. paper ones need a couple of drawing cabinets (bigger than 4-draw filing cabinets), and colour displays time out just when you are managing to finally figure out whether it was the blue/green wire or the green/blue wire that deactivates the detonator.
Developing to safety critical standards not only requires every requirement to be met by specific bits of code, it requires every line of code to be traceable to a requirement.
NO changes without requirements traceability being confirmed independently of the software team.
AND the same for hardware.
AND the same at system level.
There MUST be written requirements, written statements of who wrote them, who approved them, and who implemented them. If the evidence is not there in loads of hard copy and on loads of backup tapes, LOADS of people are in trouble for a lot more that emissions (which are still probably 10% of a Hummer's anyway).
Currently working fine, why would I want to upgrade?
Not being a "millenial", I do not think 2009 is very long ago. That is the year I moved house, and this is still my "new house". Hell, I still use a P4 at work.
Well MS has solved that one: After the experience of forced upgrades to Windows 10, most people will be desperately trying to avoid anything resembling an upgrade for the rest of their lives.
You would be surprised how many people buying low end Android phones have never used an app, and probably can't even spell it. They buy phones to make phone calls (Oh, the horror of it). Many would love to return to an old style Nokia, if only Nokia were there to sell them one. A lot buy used Nokias on Ebay - check the price of an E52.
Most people who care about upgrades will probably know abut CM by now anyway.
Great. How many rivers in the UK carry ships more than 10 miles?
More to the point, how many could sustain a turbine that would generate more power in their lifetimes than that required to deliver the turbine to the point of use?
Our country, and our rivers, are not very big!
In which country? Here in London, it is chlorinated heavily. We would all die otherwise. I have an under the sink filter, as my grandfather did before me. Still a slight taste of Chlorine, and some family members won't drink it.
There is no law against being a moron, and never will be: 90% of law makers are morons.
And if a company dies, the IP of all its products go to the official receiver - who should put them in the public domain.
Everyone with a phone should be entitled to join a class action against any manufacturer who does not provide a way to fix security problems - so long as the phone is capable of operation: ie until physical death of said phone.
Separately, there ought to be a law preventing sale of undocumented hardware to the general public. If you don't know what it is you own, how do you know it is safe to own it? If the manufacturer prevents you from knowing, surely he takes responsibility for its safety, and should be required to place a bond with the government covering the maximum possible risk (of being sued by all phone owners, everywhere, repeatedly, with the highest legal costs that lawyers can imagine).
I presume by "assets" you mean their "wedding tackle" - yes freeze with liquid Nitrogen.
