I don't know if they are all manufacured in China, but a local company, Intermec, makes and sells scanners. They may be Chinese sourced parts though.
The article said it had an optical fiber tether. Nothing on how strong the tether was, but I am assuming it was like breaking a fishing line, so no way to retrieve a portion of the device. They did say that they found pieces floating on surface though.
I agree with that. My wife still uses hers, with cynogenmod though. It has a few cracks in the plastic, but covered that up with a cheap silicone case. WebOS was awesome, and much more friendly than Android or IOS. Shame it was not allowed to keep going.
I really don't know what they are touting, but the HP Touchpad that died at birth, had beats audio. It has surprising good quality speaker sound for a tablet. I am guessing that may be a portion of what they bought.
And how much the state is will to pay in tax breaks to get them there. Here in Iowa, Facebook, Microsoft, and Google have all put in or are putting in, large data centers.
At least they have both types of music. Country and Western.
The small town of Washington, Iowa, pop 7000. Just got a surplus MRAP.
The same issues of magazines that are currently there. They never change.
Ground sensors that are used where I am completely negate being able to time lights. The main problem with them, is that they don't use the cameras at most intersections to bias the signals to the flow of traffic. You will have 1 car on a side street stop 20 cars and trucks, when the side car could wait. Not only that, the sensors will stop traffic when there is no one on the side street, because they did a legal right turn on red. That has to waste thousands of gallons of fuel each day, just in my city.
That's the generic term for speed cameras. Our city put in red light cameras to get their feet in the door with that type of system. Where they have made bank is putting them on the interstate highway that goes through town.

They screwed up my year of birth for my SSAN for a few years. I found out when I tried to efile my taxes several years ago. Rather than go through the hassle of digging up birth certificate and spending lots of time at the social security office, I figured out what they wanted and gave it to them on my tax form. They had one of the digits as a 7 and it should have been a 1. Probably an OCR error I would guess. I eventually went in and got it fixed. Had to waste a 40 mile round trip, and 3 hours of my time to fix their fuck up.
I did too, and signed up online. It went into a black hole as far as I can tell. Nothing has been done.
Yes, I am an idiot, and I was going to correct the message immediately. Unfortunately Slashdot is a harsh mistress and won't allow you to correct typos after you hit submit.
