They don't need to break encryption to find out what you're doing with your bank, since the bank legally has no choice but to roll over and tell them.
Governments worldwide that are marching to fascism want encryption banned. God forbid (and you bet they'll invoke God in what they're doing) you should be able to talk to someone in a manner they can't easily listen in on! This is not an unintended effect of sloppy legalese, it's a fully intentional consequence of obfuscated legalese.
Will they nail you for communicating with your bank? No. Will they nail you for communicating with someone they consider "undesirable"? You bet your arse they will.
Not only that, but the Internet doesn't even respect international boundaries, let alone state boundaries. The FCC is absolutely within its rights to play the "interstate commerce" card here. You can argue the merits of the FCC position, but it's disingenuous to argue that this isn't under Federal jurisdiction.
Piracy is less of a problem when the platform is "free" to start with. Most people will accept slightly annoying/intrusive advertising to get their OS for free. A few will jailbreak and clean it, but most won't.
If those ads are for relevant things (like "you have less than a quarter tank of fuel, why not try Chevron with Techron?", "You are nearing 50,000 miles, here's a coupon for a free tire inspection", etc.) they may not even be perceived as intrusive so much as helpful.
This is hardly a new phenomenon. To quote Don Henley:
Out on the read today, I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac.
A little voice inside my head said 'don't look back, you can never look back.'
The problem with double shots is that until quite recently, they were always made of ABS. That means they get shiny, and generally (but not always) feel kinda cheap. PBT and POM have much better feel and don't pick up a shine, but double-shot PBT has always been a low-yield process. Recently a process has been developed to use POM for the inserts and PBT for the key body, and this seems to work, though the wrinkles are still being ironed out. Also, PBT tends to warp while cooling, making the yield low for spacebars. Lots of PBT-key sets still come with an ABS spacebar for this reason.
Pad printing is also not the only option. Dye sublimation is an option for PBT (it doesn't work well on ABS), and although it has less contrast and sharpness than double-shot, it does not wear out because it's not on the surface, it's in the first 0.2 mm or so. Then there's lasering of the legends, which is exactly what it sounds like. The uppermost layer is lasered away, and the plastic below is either photosensitive or is a different color. The downside is that contrast is typically poor and there is a derpression at the legend which can sometimes be felt -- the opposite of pad printing, where sometimes the raised area can be felt, particularly when a clearcoat is applied to reduce wear.
You're rocking a board with Cherry MX switches. There are plenty of replacement key sets available for you. The bad news is that the keys alone probably cost more than your entire keyboard.
Model Ms that don't work with a passive PS/2-USB connector generally do work with an active one like the Blue Cube.
I put the link in there but it apparently got eaten.

I imagined this all voiced like the bear in The Missing Scarf. Jump to 2:39 if you are in a hurry.
I bet this guy will kick ass at chess boxing when his NFL days are over.
Similarly one could ask "why are so few artists making 8-bit chiptunes these days, voluntarily restricting themselves to the limits of a pair of AY3-8910 chips?" The answer is: because it's passé, plain and simple. I still do it (some, far from exclusively), but even some of the other people on the same project don't understand why I am sticking religiously to either 3 notes + 1 noise in mono, or 6 + 2 in hard-panned stereo, with no exceptions. (OK, for Berlioz I used exactly double that.) I force myself to adhere to those limitations because that's what they were. If I don't, then it's inauthentic, and once I start bending rules for convenience, why should I stick to the Mockingboard format at all? I might as well do cheesy MIDI with 16 channels and essentially no composition limits.
"If you hit the wall in an Indy Car and don't take your hands off the wheel, you'll break your wrists. Our wheel is a one-to-one replication of that, but we don't turn it up that high.
If you don't turn it up that high, it's not really a one-to-one replication then, is it?
It is, up to its limit. One-to-one just means they aren't scaling back ALL outputs to fit them in their dynamic range, they're allowing them to clip to the safety limits.
I can foresee asymmetric travel. In the mornings, you'd have people going north, and in the evenings, people going south, more than the reverse. It's easier to get around the SF Bay without a car than it is to get around L.A. without a car. Thus, a lot of the people coming south are going to drive, because even if a train can get them 90% of the way there, they still have a last mile problem.
The standards body for the microelectronics industry has found that Solid State Drives (SSD) can start to lose their data and become corrupted if they are left without power for as little as a week. According to a recent presentation (PDF) by Seagate's Alvin Cox, who is also chairman of the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC), the period of time that data will be retained on an SSD is halved for every 5 degrees Celsius (9 degrees Fahrenheit) rise in temperature in the area where the SSD is stored.

Of course, but letting the doctors from outside do their work uninhibited IS to their credit. The same cannot be said of all such operations in the region.
This may have something to do with the fact that Liberia itself has an internal image that it is a modern nation with a money problem, rather than a "developing nation".
