I'm told I gave permission for things that I in no way gave permission for (consciously) far to often to buy that one.
They'll just add permissions to the shrink wrap license on your smart ignition key (or your XM radio, live maps, emergency service, or some other needed/desirable function). Pesky 'privacy' problem solved!
Well, yeah, if you can maintain complete control over the information a person has access to, then, yes, over a period of time you could mold the way they think.
Nobody has that ability. Not the US govt, not the Iranian govt, and certainly not Facebook. "Reasonable and intelligent people" are able to recognize when they're being fed propaganda, and take it with the appropriate dosage of salt.
It's the idiots and morons that swallow it hook, line, and sinker. Obviously, that makes these people a very valuable target audience if you're running for political office.
The best thing about AOL was that for several years, I never had to buy floppy disks. I could count on a reliable stream of free ones showing up in my mail box on a regular basis. Sometimes 2 or 3 in a day.
I was quite perturbed when they switched to sending their shit out on CD.....
He said "intelligent and reasonable" people. And he was right.
It is, however, trivial to influence stupid and unreasonable people. And there is no shortage of those.
That's why I said earlier in this thread that I have reinforced my belief that my next car will be a late 60's or early 70's muscle car.
Might not be as "green" as some would like. But it was built without any spy tech, and I could spot any suspicious crap that has been added on after the fact.
Not like today's models, which are basically just computers on wheels. Take out the factory radio to install a superior aftermarket model, and suddenly your heater doesn't work.
You can't tell me there's not a 3 letter agency behind that sort of retarded engineering.
Given our success in the "War on
Given our success in the "War on Drugs", we should declare war on prosperity.
Given our success in the "War on Terror", we should declare war on freedom.
Seems like the only thing we accomplish when we declare "War on" something is to ensure that it will propagate and grow.
(Oh, wait, I already won that war decisively. It was a scorched earth sort of thing. Recovery won't be possible within 10 lifetimes....)
If it is reflecting RF, it is in effect, transmitting.
Well, no. I see what you're trying to say, but... No.
Pretty much by definition transmitting and reflecting are different and separate things.
I suppose it's possible to reflect a signal that you also transmitted, but it would be pointless, since the reflected signal will always be weaker than the transmitted signal.
