Comment Is this a surprise? (Score 0) 523

I remember reading an article a while back about how the CEO of Tesla was flying private jets around, even though they were in the middle of desperately asking for funding. I think this was more a case of poor advertising, and horrible management. Can really expect to go anywhere in this world shooting yourself in the foot.

By no means is this watergate. One told about a presidents wrong doing in an act of corporate espionage. The other was shear taking the classified documents about thousands of different happenings around the world, whether good or bad, taking them out of context to construe it to however Assange feels, and putting it on the internet. This wasn't a "He took some of this info to the news." This was a selfish act by someone who swore an oath to serve and protect yet did anything but.

Exactly! I'm not sure what all they take into account, but my smartphone doesn't replace my computer. Also, what about how a lot of people build their own PC's. I can't build my own laptop (currently). So this "news" story is being slated as ground breaking when maybe hey... I built my computer last year and it's time for me to buy a laptop/netbook/Definitely not iPad to go along with the whole setup.

So apparently they are also making the bold claim that no one uses electronic devices on any other airline except theirs. I mean coincidence their negligence leads to "interference" while no other companies are making this claim nor having sudden drops in altitude.

Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
