That's just... sheesh. If nothing else, surely this gives Samsung a monstrous reason to... ermm, can you get a mistrial in something like this? One side having evidence introduced through the backdoor so to speak, without chance to offer a rebuttal, or their product? Judge Koy's handling of this continues to stagger a reasonable person. At the end of all this, Samsung surely has a telephone book's worth of evidence to show Judicial Bias against them.

People need to be arrested for this. The people who ordered it done, wrote the reports, signed off on it, and anyone who did it. Ship some of them to various other countries for trials too, let everyone get into the action and let it be known to governments that this is not to be accepted.

Yeah, that's strange it's not been integrated as the functionality seems obvious (and there's apps like GrooveIP that do it). The only thing I can imagine is that the actual carriers are warning Google off from including that sort of functionality as I'm sure they'd not like all their customers getting free calls. When Google Fiber has rolled out to the world, and Google buys TMobile, then we might see that functionality.

Surely even the start of the nation, throwing Tea into the harbor was a protection racket with Hutchinson not wanting legitimate trade cutting into his smuggling operation. It's not just the last 100 years, it's been there from the start, then with slavery, and continues today with this sort of control. No, those freedoms haven't really ever existed.

Totally. He can lean back and use this for sooo much PR. "See? the west is corrupt! you have it good, in Russia, da?" And use it for bargaining later for stuff. This was an easy choice for him to make to offer, and the US still keeps making themselves look daft everytime they talk about Snowden.

Yeah, this is exactly what I think they're doing. Covering themselves to say 'we don't really want to, but if you force us to, we're in a position to take away every bit of business you've currently got, and we will, so what was that about you wanting us to pay to give your (soon to be ours) customers content? At the moment, I think they're a bit limited as to FCC/laws on owning everything, but with the telcos wanting to be more than just dumb pipes, they're setting themselves up to confronted about their tactics. In my ideal world, every Google router sold had a mini-hotspot/mini-cell tower attached to the outside of the house, to provide cell phone coverage around the city at these ludicrous speeds. For 99% of the time, that'd do me just fine.

So, the AC unit can be the master, with wifi, that also connects to the smoke alarms around the house with wifi, with speakers... I'm sensing the chance for streaming music wherever you go in the house. Notifications, warnings where you left the phone. More of the chromecast model of a fairly basic module that's controlled through the phone's UI and just streams. To have these neat devices ONLY used for fire/ac, when they could have so much more running? Lots of potential. Tied in with your phone, and it's location, so as you're returning from work, crank up the heat/AC as needed. Maybe tie it into Google Glass so you can wander around the house and SEE the temp and control it with a few blinks? Very very cool, hopefully Google won't dump it but really go all out to make it the base of an Aware House.

Money is the root of all evil, and man needs roots.
