Now which regulations are we going to get rid of? Typically the government adds regulations in response to abuse of the system. Maybe we should let companies pollute the rivers as long as they promise not to do it too much? How about lower the safety requirements as long as not many people get chewed up by machinery. Or maybe just let people discriminate against the handicapped.
But yeah, let's worry about getting people health care because it was working perfectly before Obama came along and ruined it for everyone.
The natural gas infrastructure is a bit lacking. There was a shortage this winter when everyone was warming their houses (not cooking burgers), so a lot of places needed to switch to oil which we really don't have infrastructure for. Some higher capacity pipelines would be a good addition to more renewables such as off-shore wind power without needing to rely on coal.
You think there is no profit to be made in wiping people's cell phones? Ever hear of blackmail? How about terrorism? Think there is no profit to be made in selling technology to mass kill cell phones to terrorist groups who might want to cause problems? There is profit to be made in exploits if you really think about it hard enough.
I was referring to the parent post who said "deactivates and wipes EVERY PHONE", which would not be very useful. There are much softer targets already for people looking to cause mayhem, and even terrorists use cellphones.
It would also idle for half an hour while the update installed.
Hell no, it would rev up the engine to 5k RPM and refuse to let me turn on the radio while it checked all the previous components had been installed properly. Only after I towed it home would it finally idle when I went to turn it off.
Even if the stock tanks, I'd be happy with the $4B cash.
Google isn't actually an advertising company though, they just get revenue from advertising. Similarly Comcast is a cable company that also gets revenue from advertising.
Some games can do NAT hole punching.
However, the GP is correct in that ISPs need to upgrade a lot of expensive routers to add support. The good news is they have to upgrade them regularly anyways, so if they just make the decision to go the IPv6 route, it'll happen. I imagine plenty are partially supporting IPv6 already, but that one stubborn switch won't die.
