Couldn't they just attach some kind of reciever to the port and send it remote instructions...like once car hits 100 km/h (60 mph) disable brakes? That being said, they could always just cut a brake line as mentioned above.

Good call. At least with nuclear war I won't have to deal with DRM anymore.
Oh ya? My router drops ALL requests...
It may be time for a new router.
What exactly do pilots use their peripheral vision for? Last time I heard a pilot talking, if you could see the other plane you were waaaaaay to close. That is what long range radar is for, you can blow them up before you can even see them. Especially at the speeds places are currently flying, vision isn't really all that useful.
Unless you mean using peripheral vision to watch your radar while playing angry birds on your phone. Then yes, pilots depend on that.
I have to disagree with some of your statement...I hate doctors not because they often don't know what is wrong and hand wave to distract you from the fact that they are taking a guess...even when you are fully aware of what is wrong with you from past experience.
Computer people generally do know what is wrong, and can fix it. So they explain happily while they work. Some doctors may, but a good number do not, so they hand wave. I will give them the fact that a human body can fail in many more ways than a computer, but it is still a frustrating exercise to find a good physician.
Wait! Floppies are dead? But...but...that means I am working in a graveyard! I am pretty sure that should be illegal.
Seriously though, floppies still have their use. A quick reliable way to boot an old machine up and run small utilities? Pass the 'dead' disk please!
All over Hyrule? All you need to do is put them in the water temple. That place was just cruel.
It was unclear why Richard "Chip" Lutton Junior, who manages the iPhone maker's patent portfolio, is leaving the company.

Well I just had a chance to check out the rocket sticks...not worth it. They are over 200 dollars without contract, and as mention around here somewhere the connection is subpar. Sorry for the crappy advice above, I just knew it was a possibility.
Join the club...although it is almost mosquito season now! Back on topic...what about the "Rocket Stick" that Rogers offers. It is basically a USB stick that connects to the cellular network to offer internet to tablets, laptops etc. If your iPad has a USB port (too lazy to look up specs, but with Apple who knows what the latest thing you don't need is) you can just plug in the Rocket Stick and get internet. The data plans are not too terrible, but the speeds aren't great. Honestly would not be my first option, and I would avoid it if at all possible, but it could be worth looking into.
Oh, I am not sure what the cost for the stick is if you don't do a contract data plan though...
So why not test it by getting radiation badges for the people working there and put the rumours to rest? Oh right...because that would mean there is a chance you might get caught.
Just do what I do. Name my pets after my servers.
Here you go then, fired for having a few drinks, and one expletive on a private facebook page.
If you aren't part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate silly.
