"or are consumers going to just get screwed in the long run" That depends. Do the built-in dildos have a monthly fee?
That isn't teaching them anything, because they already would accept them by definition. Also, there's probably much more benefit from being given a flash drive with TOR than being taught not to accept flash drives for multiple reasons (the latter doesn't happen too often, flash drive with program seems much more appealing than a lecture, etc).
3. The ATF is a bunch of ignorant buffoons. Getting up in arms over some obscure thing like 3D printing isn't going to make anyone safer. But their response seems to suggest that the reason they aren't meddling is that the technology isn't reliable enough over time! They could at least be consistent.
The airlines or even the crew could still enforce these rules if they want to, which wouldn't surprise me.
Couldn't they just do what some apps already do and require the user to log in to use the service? If it has to have some basic free functionality, they could just make it a viewer for office documents (after all, you can already do that for free). It's not as if Microsoft isn't popular enough that people would know to go to their website even if they can't link to it.
Exactly. A fact unrelated to the issue at hand that sheds a negative light on the source is still an ad hominem.
Joswiak? Sounds like Jobs + Wozniak.
