The problem is that there are no license requirements for bikes, so many riders are totally unaware of the actual laws, and often highly inexperienced..
Drivers at least have to pass a test, and while there are plenty of bad drivers they should at least have some experience and understanding of the rules.
Well the solution to this is fairly clear...
So... why is it still open?
Smart TVs are almost certainly involved and if they aren't already, soon will be.
Gullible people seem quite happy to install TVs with inbuit cameras and microphones in their living rooms and connect them to the Internet. What could possibly go wrong?
While I don't celebrate 4th of July (not American) I've always thought that mid-summer was an awkward time to hold fireworks displays.
By the time it's dark enough to effectively set off fireworks it's well past kids bedtimes and noise becomes a large consideration.
In my southern-hemisphere country we celebrate Guy Fawkes (or the failure thereof) on 5th November but that's of course close to our summertime so we have the same problem.
The UK seems to have gotten that right - Guy Fawkes in late autumn when it's dark in the evenings but not freezing cold.
I'm... not... sure you're replying to the right post there, sonny. I was the one backing up your fair use of the legitimate term M$. I know nothing of your use of MSN, with a $ or otherwise.
My experience with LEDs is the opposite - the diodes outlast the ballast components, in particular the mains voltage capacitor.
M$ is the acceptable shorthand for Microsoft Corporation, commonly used by those who dislike them.
And, if you have been paying any attention to the activities of that company, this will include you.
'twas a CFL, or more specifically a box of six at about $5 each. it took a while before I settled on a brand that lasted longer than six months.
I have bought a few LED ones too - they have good emitters, but the cheap mains capacitors in the ballasts let them down, blowing after a relatively short period.
I would still really like to see CFL and LED bulbs come out with separate ballasts. Then you can just replace the part that's failed.
Are you serious?
Here's my priorities for a smart-watch, in decreasing order of importance. Satisfy all of these and I'll consider wearing one:
- Battery life. Useless if it needs charging every day or two.
- Responsiveness. Staring blankly at a spinner while the watch synchronizes is a show-stopper.
- Security. How easy is it for someone else to connect to it or the controlling tablet/phone without my permission?
- Feature set. Yes, this is only fourth on the priority list.
- Price. I'd rather it didn't cost a month's wages to buy one, but if they become popular enough there will be a second-hand market soon enough.
C. It's C all the way down.
ISPs are now a basic utility. They provide bandwidth through which you perform your online activities. That "series of tubes" analogy, while simplistic, applies quite well here. You're renting a small tube.
In no way should a utility be liable for the actions of its customers. When a psychopath electrocutes puppies in their garage is the electricity company held liable?
When someone floods their neighbours basement with a garden hose is the water company liable?
Then it should not be so for ISPs, who should as a result have no just cause to snoop on what goes through their "tubes".
Legally this isn't the case in most jurisdictions, but it damn well should be.
