The radio hardware or the frequency? Many phones have multi-band radios that work everywhere, and even handle both the CDMA+GSM carriers, so I'm not sure why they'd have a different radio chip for Canada.
Or they introduce a game as a pre-release, and it's awesome. Then they introduce a bunch of pay-to-win crap, or break the game in other ways when it's released as a completed product. People see a new game come out, see awesome reviews, and buy it... but at this point what *was* a good game is now a steaming pile of sh**...
I've seen many games that seem to have gone this route... although to be fair many are FTPPTW (Free to Play Pay to Win) so the only thing you really waste before seeing it's a PTW piece of junk is time and bandwidth.
What I'm getting from this is that Ulbricht should have incorporated

But he wasn't. He wasn't even charged with it.

Why does anyone use Skype knowing its backdoored and every thing they say and do is recorded??
The same reason why people use the Internet and landlines where every thing they say and do is recorded too.
What does Skype do better than everyone else?
It provides international VOIP telephony fairly reliable and free. Works around most networking issues too. It's a shame the current generations of the software are quite slow.

Team America: World Police.
Seriously, though, we all know (or those of us with CT experience), that the only programs that have worked are those in the Middle East and nearby countries. Spying on Americans in America has proved very worthless. Traditional police investigations using targetted individual warrants and traditional police interrogation (not torture) have resulted in all the successes to date.
We need to stop wasting time on promoting Fear to justify wasting taxes on unneeded spying and focus on the true threats, which are not here.
That said, expect numerous false flag media reports over the next few weeks in a vain attempt to prove we should all live in Fear.
The vote in the Senate Tuesday was 67-32. The House already has passed the bill, and President Barack Obama plans to sign it quickly.
The legislation will phase out, over six months, the once-secret National Security Agency bulk phone records collection program made public two years ago by agency contractor Edward Snowden. It will be replaced by a program that keeps the records with phone companies but allows the government to search them with a warrant. Senate Republican leaders opposed the House bill but were forced to accept it unchanged after senators rejected last-ditch attempts to amend it.
