The EU is much less lenient on monopolies.
the building of infrastructure isnt the problem. with the exception of rural areas, everywhere in the US already has fiber optic cable capable of getting gigabit speeds. the issue we have is that each ISP has its own little area with no competition.. why would they charge 70$ per month for gigabit(like google) when they can charge 50$ a month for 20Mbit
this is because over half of ATT's internet service plans are below 10Mbps and they charge like 30$ for them per month
because we dont care about them. also... because we are essentially just giving internet companies subsidies. this doesnt actually mean that the end user is recieving ANY of this discount.
studies have shown time and time again that just the act of being distracted from the road is bad. if you are talking to someone on the phone, or even in the car with you... or if you are even listening to the radio, these are all equally distracting. it is entirely possible to text while driving safely so long as you are not moving while you are texting or if you are using a hands free device.
the real issue at hand is that dumbasses have decided that they can take their eyes off the road while they are moving to type a text. people also take their eyes off the road to talk with people next to them... or behind them. is it really a good idea to ban everyone from texting while in the car because a few people are dumbasses? i text only when i'm stopped at a light, technically that is illegal, despite the fact that there is absolutely no way it can affect my driving..
if every second was
the real question is 'why does anyone measure time in seconds?' the whole 60 thing is incredibly innaccurate and ultimately annoying to use. wouldnt you rather change the scale so that there are 100 seconds in a minute, 100 minutes in an hour and 10 or 100 hours in a day? obviously the exact time of a day is set due to the rotation of the earth, but any of the time measurement we use up to that point could be changed to something less old-fashioned (ancient sumerian).
they are slowly deploying. we will see it across the country by 2020
lost in the 90s.
having to pay for a license to drive ppl around is ridiculous. in england, in order to be a taxi driver, you have to take a test saying you know at least 90% of the roads.... this is just plain dumb... we have gps for that.
if that is true then that is a ridiculous amount of power for one organization. i figured they just had the ability to make rules over airspace that people actually fly in.. like 10k-50k ft in the air.
actually, during takeoff and landing, most of us are still able to get internet. the issue i was complaining about is when you are up in the air, you no longer get cell phone signal to stream music.
noone can use any devices without wifi really... and guess what, airlines charge a ridiculous amount for wifi.
but thats the truth... if the laws says it is legal, sadly it is legal. the only way we can change that is by revolting against the lawmakers.
let me ask you this, what is the difference between murder and assasination/war? you guessed it! in the latter, the government says it is ok, in the former, the government says it is not ok.
the faa can make all the rules they want... amazon just has to fly their drones below the faa airspace
