Umm, nice try. Take a look at the law that is referenced in this post.
Chapter 90, section 1 (definitions):
Motor vehicles, all vehicles constructed and designed for propulsion by power other than muscular power including such vehicles when pulled or towed by another motor vehicle, except railroad and railway cars, vehicles operated by the system known as trolley motor....

Man, after all of Sun's customers got screwed by Oracle buying them I cant believe people are still investing in Sparc hardware. Sun''s marketshare has gone from 16% in q1-2008 to 4.7% in q1-2012 as HP, IBM and Dell's marketshare have increased. With declines like that; its only a matter of time before Oracle turns away the rest of their server customers by killing off Sparc an Solaris.

The mission of the ITC is to "serve the public by implementing U.S. law and contributing to the development of sound and informed U.S. trade policy"

Exactly how is banning a good chunk of mobile phones from entering the country (HTC and Motorola, and making insane decisions "developing sound and informed trade policy"?
I am just waiting for samsung devices to be banned too.

Comment: Not a SINGLE shift in streaming+dvd customers? (Score 2) 349

I find it quite interesting in the netflix prediction:
Prior to model change:
Streaming only: 10,0m customers
Streaming+DVD: 12.0m customers
DVD Only: 3.0m customers

Post-implementation of the new pricing model, Netflix expects the customer base break-out to be:
Streaming only: 9.8m customers
Streaming+DVD: 12.0m customers
DVD only: 2.2m customers

So let me get this straight - the price for streaming+dvd is at least doubling - and Netflix is not expecting that customer count to go down at all. Instead, they are expecting a net loss on the two plans they are creating to make things better - instead of a net loss on on the plan that is going up 100% for many customers.

For $100 more than the NSpire CX CAS you could buy a netbook and fill it with cutting edge mathematical software such as Octave, Scilab, SAGE and so on

Yeah, sure you can get that netbook, and get the cutting edge software, but can you use it on the SAT. Nope - so its not all that useful for a learning tool anymore, is it.
You should use a type of calculator you plan on using for your long term educational career. My good old TI-85 got me through 6 years of school, and I still have it 10 years later.
