Under communism there is no private sector, thereby solving the problem of government officials moonlighting for private-sector companies.
Wireless bandwidth is limited by the allocated spectrum. With landlines, you can always drag more fiber or copper, hook it up, and expand your bandwidth. You can't do that with wireless.
No, but you can:
- install more towers
- reduce the power output/coverage on the existing towers, creating smaller cells
- re-use the bandwidth you've already been allocated, in smaller cells
This is how wireless carriers increase bandwidth. There's considerably more bandwidth available, per square mile, in a city than in a rural area. Not because they have more spectrum in the city. But because each tower services a smaller cell.
It's slightly more complicated than that; adjacent towers need to use non-overlapping spectrum, permits, backhaul connectivity, power. Yeah, it's expensive. Of course, it's expensive to drag more fiber or copper, too.
I hope it does along with the form factor...
I've commented multiple times about hydraulic hybrids. I like them, relative to electric hybrids, because they have a very high power density. I like the acceleration that power brings. And 1,000 charge/discharge cycles is hard on batteries but pretty much a normal day for hydraulics.
I'm not sure if it's the same as the "terrorist watch list", but there's some kind of intermediate "can fly, but only after extra hassle" list also. I was on one for a while, apparently because of some British person with the same name as mine (I'm American, but have a very common English name). I couldn't use web check-in and had to always go to the airport to check-in with a person, who would first assume I was just dumb and didn't know how to use the machine, then after they verified I could indeed not check in on the machine, they'd poke around at the desk a bit, then call someone, check my ID, then give me a boarding pass, I guess after verifying I was not the other guy. Could've been worse, but was pretty annoying, especially because nobody would actually explain what was going on.
Android could perfectly well let you give an app local permissions without giving it call-out-to-the-network permissions. Snapsave shouldn't need to ever call out to external servers in the first place, if it does only what it advertises.
Android doesn't do this because of their broken ad-based ecosystem, though: they don't want to draw your attention to apps that unnecessarily call out to the network, because the most common reason for doing so is to show ads.
