Making electric cars even more expensive will really help them get market penetration.

Verizon is too big, and our government does not care.
The only answer is to actively work to destroy Verizon until they acquiesce or no longer exist.
There is really only one answer to Verizon. They need to be broken up. Is the government wont do it, we should do it.
Then why keep the L3 pipes flooded?
Oh right, money.
As a FiOS customer this would matter to me if Verizon wasn't actively trying to extort money from Tier 1 providers.
Oh! THOSE guys.
Yeah, fuck these assholes.
... that he's not gunning for a c-level position at Comcast, Sprint, or T-Mobile? Guess we'll have to see how favorable he acts to Verizon and AT&T.
Honestly, I used to love Spamhaus, but as the years wore on, I got into the IT world, and I had to interact with them I've come to really loathe them. A decent service, I guess, but every single person that is involved with them comes across like a whining child, and I hate ever having to interact with them.
Now go and take this out into New York City on 5th avenue at 5pm ET rush hour during the work week.
No, seriously, I want to see how well this car performs in a city where the posted 40mph speed limit oin the Staten Island Expressway is ignored by the vast majority of cops and motorists, the normal speed is about 70mph or so, and people will rear end you out of spite if you go too slow for them.
Then get me the data on how much less it costs to run this car.
The basic problem with this article - and the authors previous articles - is that they assume that law enforcement, judges, and government are morally just entities who will always attempt to enforce laws based on their spirit and not their own personal ambitions.
The reason the fifth amendment exists is not to protect criminals from prosecution - as you ignorantly assume in your first article - but to protect innocent people from prosecution from crimes they didn't commit, a protection that lingers from the days of King George. An individual would be forced to admit their guilt one way or another. If they said they were innocent, and lawyers later proved them incorrect, they would be charged with two crimes. Claim guilt and you get no trial.
This system allowed two charges to be claimed against the perpetrator, who was potentially innocent of the crime but because of policing techniques and lawyers arguments could be found guilty
The ability to choose not to speak up for yourself means police are forced to perform their duties as efficiently and honestly (although that's not always the case) as possible. It's also a good opportunity for your lawyer to talk strategy with you and see what the potential outcomes are of an investigation and trial.
Really, all this proves is that samzenpus is a naive little child living in a much larger world where he believes the big government is a protective father, and not an entity of politicians, judges, and LEOs. It's a bad trait of smart people who should know better than this.
Yeah, that was probably your problem. Also, keep a check on any torrents you have running - running those at full tilt can consume an ass-load of bandwidth too.
Tor basically asks "how much bandwidth can I use" and then uses it. I have to keep an eye on it because I run a live stream at HD resolutions, and being conscious of my bandwidth usage is priority #1.
I run a non-exit Tor node, and have not received any letter like this, on FiOS. Although, I DO limit my bandwidth consumption via Tor.
oh god, reading all of the comments
Yes, the website a29. is amazing, isn't it? 29 a's, all lined up in a row. My, how far technology has come!
Title should read: "Elliott Kember's Insane Password Security Strategy"
Seriously, why are you storing passwords, at all? Unless you're storing them on in an encrypted space of some kind that requires two-factor authentication you shouldn't be storing passwords at all (and even then I really question your sanity).
