Avoid using whois on registrar sites to check availability. It's trivial for them to hijack that info and then allow someone else to see what domains people have been checking, so they can pre-emptively register them.
Seems like a pretty good argument to do *a lot* of bogus inquiries. Let them pre-emptively register to their heart's content.
I don't think the trajectory can tell us anything. These missiles turn and chase their targets. The point of impact will say nothing about from where the missile was launched.
The good data will likely come from radar signals. The U.S. has already indicate that they know the missile was launched from a rebel controlled area.
Transponders and other things already send a bunch of data (in the case of MH370, all of these thing had been turned off).
In terms of the black boxes, there's also another consideration; privacy. Remember that all of the cockpit conversations are recorded and are generally only listened to if the plane crashes. I doubt if pilots would put up with a system that broadcast all of their conversations all over the world.
In this case though, I don't think the black boxes are going to be of much value. They'll show that the flight systems went haywire for some reason, and we already know the cause of that. The pilots may or may not have been aware of impending doom, but I don't see how that information would be useful in any event.
Most states, prodded perhaps by dealer associations, have forbidden auto manufacturers from selling directly to the public. New York, Ohio and Texas have been among the most prominent battlegrounds so far.
Ah, but here you are mistaking the difference between a corporate entity and a person.
Unless you believe Citizens United the rights of a corporation are different than those of a person.
There really is no difference within this context. If I have a lemonade stand and would like to deliver lemonade by drone I would be subject to the same regulations as Amazon. Just as I'd be subject to health department regulations like Applebee's is.

In the long run "subsidizing the people who don't take care of themselves" will save money for everyone. Even you. A rising tide lifts all ships and all that stuff.
Really, the best thing we can do now is to make sure everyone is healthy and educated and happy. You just never know where the next Einstein will come from.
Or Hawking. I wonder what his FitBit readings would look like.
So for $70,000 why would I want to buy this car versus a Tesla Model S? Or two Chevy Volts?
Thanks you for weighing in, Elon. I think I can give you some answers....
1) The Toyota is cheaper.
2) It can be refilled quickly.
3) GM, Ford, Honda, Toyota, (and even Hyundai, for fuck's sake) don't agree with you.
Why do you have to wait for the charge, if you can just replace the battery?
Spoken like a true cell phone user. Who is going to keep thousands of fully charged 1000lb batteries all around the nation so you can visit your site of the day?
You don't think you're gonna pay for that?
I don't assume they're going to put the fuel tanks on the roof of the car?
Why would you think that that would even be a good idea? It would actually be much safer than mounting a gas tank up there (and much lighter)
But Honda, Hyundai and Toyota, (among others) have not found it necessary.
If there was a high school science fair project that demonstrated some sort of free energy, I would definitely sit up and take notice. If only to debunk it.
But who said anything about Free energy? It could be anything generated by a Bunsen burner or pond pump. In the real world, it could be anything from Germany's solar plants, or Iceland's abundant hydroelectric or geothermal power.
I don't see where you get "Free energy" from that.
We don't ever need to get beyond 'cost effective' - that would be fine. If we could get to 'ubiquitous', it could be a world saver.
It is a bit fanciful, but every part of it would be demonstrable at a high school science fair.
