Industrial infrastructure producing weapons and ammunition is also a valid military target as it goes towards depriving the enemy of the ability to wage war.
And why do you think it is harder for workers in cities to vote, compared to rural populations that often have to travel many miles to reach a polling place?
Let's not, a new set of good tires for my car are already close to $2,000 how much will these things cost.
I suspect a large part of this trend is due to an ever increasing population in the southern part of the US (from CA to FL, not just "the south") as the seasonal variaiton on length of day light is less the closer to the equator one lives, making it a more and more trivial topic.
LORAN-C had lots of limitations, range from the transmitter, the fact that it did not directly read out as a location, instead gave a pair of time delays, limited accuracy, etc. I was working around small coastal boats back in those days, and I can tell you that GPS even then when it had limited hours of daily coverage due to an incomplete constelation in the late 1980's was already revolutionary for even small craft. I still have a small handheld GPS from those days, well not small by todays standards, it read out Lat, Long, speed, heading, etc. on an LCD screen, a set of batteries lasted about 8 hours, so it was best to plug into external power, took 5+ minutes for a cold boot, and 1-2 minutes for a warm sync if you were lucky.
The difference here is that Rosa Parks did not destroy the bus
This is likely one of those cases where the manufacturer is not to blame, instead it is likely federal regulations that require these systems to be locked down and only adjusted by authorized personel, I know this is the case with many new industrial engines where emissions compliance requires that field technicians no longer be able to adjust certain parameters, instead all these settings are locked down at the factory.
Make that was given, regardless of if you are an Obama supporter or not, you must admit many of the resasons he was given the prize so early in his presidency were not based on actions, but based on campaign promises that never came to passs.
You are partly right, but I strongly suspect they waited too long before trying to do something about it,too many of these technologies are getting too mature.
If you were to buy a good printer and not a $29 inkjet you would not have those issues, printers still have a place, and it is not just those paper centric shoppinglists, you never know when you may need to print a color coded luggage tag, or a print at home gift card,
So what the hell are Phablets? Do we really need this new term that will be out of date in 6 months?

Another way to put that is 1/3 of US households are stupid enough to report that they own firearms
My mother's next door neighbor was shot and killed by escaped federal prisoners while visiting his ranch house in a remote part of Oklahoma, my step sisters former employer was killed by a home invader with a knife at his vacation condo in the virgin islands. The same step sister was a witness to a woman being kidnapped in a grocery store parking lot, the woman was never seen again, my wife has / had a cousin that disappeared while walking home from work one day, he normally did not walk to work, but his car would not start that day so he walked the 3/4 mile to work down a somewhat rural road. The world is a dangerousl place it pays to be prepared for the unexpected.
