Not remotely. Because the iPhone is from America, as everyone knows, and America is entirely peopled with criminals, and criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me, so I can clearly not choose the iPhone encryption.

Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.

Wait till I get going! Now, where was I?

But it's so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of the FBI: are they the sort that would put their cracking abilities in the open or keep them for themselves? A clever administration would hide their secret abilities, but they know that we're not fools so clearly they would rather lie and say they could crack our encryption when clearly they can't...

When I was in University I had a parking spot such that I could walk through a hospital for quite a distance on the way to my classes. It seemed everyone who parked there would do that because when it's -20 Celsius or below (-4 F and below) you can get pretty cold walking outside in the wind. I walked outside. Why expose yourself to that crap day after day? Eventually you'll catch something, hopefully nothing more serious than the flu but who knows. I only got a bit cold.

They don't want people looking at their devices with their headphones in when the captain says "brace for impact" a moment before you're supposed to land normally. It's not that hard to just be ready for an important announcement before takeoff and landing. And they're right that you want everything stowed away for those two phases of the flight.

Comment: Sacrifice visual quality (Score 1) 337

I'd go for reducing overall visual quality rather than the AI quality. Having good AI, and supposedly better gameplay as a result, should be at the top of the priority list. I'd go so far as to reduce the visual quality so much that the framerate is high and the game responsiveness is super smooth.

Yes, GPS is more accurate for distance traveled. The odometer reading is based on tire circumference, which varies with tire wear, temperature, and tire pressure. GPS's primary weakness is altitude, but it can still be used to get a far more accurate distance measurement than our odometers.

The only way to get more reliable distance measurement is by GPS, so by all means go for it. However, it is easy to get a far more accurate fuel use number by using the actual volume of fuel you paid for, and it's the same for all vehicles since we all use the same calibrated pumps. Ideally, one wouldn't rely on any of the onboard instruments to calculate these numbers, but we're pretty sure the odometers aren't completely fraked up. I can't say the same about the fuel flow meter.
