I think it's the latter. While marijuana production and even growing your own is legal under state law, it's still heavily regulated -- but much less so than it was before legalization.
Nobody can do that.
Then he would be acting as an unlicensed reseller on behalf of the company he owns. Also illegal. What makes you imagine that the Iowa legislature didn't think of every way a manufacturer could get around the law?
Regular coffee is too cheap for them?
When it's a remote prospect, they say they'd go. If you actually had a ship ready to leave next month, you might find it's more like 1 in 100 at those odds.
I'm sorry. I didn't know that programming was something that only Americans were allowed to do. We'll just keep it a secret, then.
I would assume that most lightning injuries wouldn''t have any observable effects on personality, because more often than not they're not going to hit the brain. But that could be a wrong impression. Maybe a high voltage jolt to the peripheral nervous system always carries back to the brain along nerve fibers and does damage there.
Who's going to stop them? The federal government?
That's prohibited under Iowa law.
Iowa Code 322.2.16. "Retail installment contract" or "contract" means an
agreement, entered into in this state, pursuant to which the title
to, the property in or a lien upon the motor vehicle, which is the
subject matter of a retail installment transaction, is retained or
taken by a retail seller from a retail buyer as security, in whole or
in part, for the buyer's obligation. The term includes a chattel
mortgage, a conditional sales contract and a contract for the
bailment or leasing of a motor vehicle by which the bailee or lessee
contracts to pay as compensation for its use a sum substantially
equivalent to or in excess of its value and by which it is agreed
that the bailee or lessee is bound to become, or has the option of
becoming, the owner of the motor vehicle upon full compliance with
the provisions of the contract.
The State is right. Tesla is breaking the law:
Iowa Code 322.3.1 A person shall not engage in this state in the business of
selling at retail new motor vehicles of any make or represent or
advertise that the person is engaged or intends to engage in such
business in this state unless the person is authorized to do so by a
contract in writing with the manufacturer or distributor of such make
of new motor vehicles and unless the department has licensed the
person as a motor vehicle dealer in this state in motor vehicles of
such make and has issued to the person a license in writing as
provided in this chapter.
Iowa Code 322.3.14. A manufacturer or importer shall not directly or indirectly
be licensed as, own an interest in, operate, or control a motor
vehicle dealer. "
You need to change the law first, THEN you can sell cars legally. Were I in Iowa, I wouldn't buy a Tesla. There's a risk that it may be impounded as evidence in a case against Tesla.
You have potential, young Skywalker, but your comments clearly prove a Jedi, you are not.
You're right. I'm not a member of your religion.
But you will be someday
Don't hold your breath
Apple isn't into commercial software.
They make their $$$ off the hardware that is handsomely marked up.
What do you call Aperture, Logic Pro, Final Cut, Mainstage, Compressor and Motion?
What's the difference between a Mac and a PC if it's not commercial software?
What's the difference between an iPhone and an Android phone if it's not commercial software?
What is Mac OS and all the apps that come with it if not commercial software?
You seem confused about what it is that differentiates Apple's products.
"more secure?" Have you been paying attention?
As for having the "users interest" in mind, I'm not so sure about that either. Commercial software has a whole different idea of what the user's interest is. Apple and Microsoft think it's what the user is willing to pay for. That view is not entirely wrong. Google thinks that the user's interest is whatever the user expresses any interest in.
None of them are very prone to thinking about what is in the user's BEST interest. I think they don't feel entirely competent to judge.
The FOSS community has very definite opinions about what's in the user's BEST interest, and they tell you what it is and try to enforce it.
And I don't know if their idea of what's in my best interest is in my best interest.
