It does in the US. Parents aren't responsible for criminal activities of their children, and minors cannot engage in contracts. Don't know how things work in the UK, but it would seem there are differences.
I do not want my car grinding to a halt because the police are looking for some runaway or a bank was robbed.
The difference between theory and practice is often much smaller in theory than in practice.
Wait, are you implying that some of these walls are missing and/or faulty?
pushing a product on the public with the hope that it will be useful once we have it is a cruel inversion of how product adoption should be handled.
Nonsense. People buy a product like a game console speculating that they will get future use out of it. This doesn't always pan out, as many second and third-gen consoles can demonstrate quite well. You can certainly make the argument (and I believe the author has) that the XBone raises the risk too high, and that's a valid point, but the only inversion going on here is the one between reality and wishful thinking.
You know what's been increasing (far faster than the population) for 40 years?

They definitely are an engineering organization. But just like LeVar Burton, you don't have to take my word for it: http://www.nsa.gov/careers/career_fields/compee.shtml
The government doesn't so much want to eliminate corruption as much as they want a cut of it.
Oh, Steve Ballmer... You're the king of semantics. That's so hot. When I think about you I touch my screen. Guess which side has a sweaty photo of you in it? Hint: both. Call me!
