Electricity, water, and natural gas all "consume" physical product. Bits on a wire don't actually consume anything, other than the electricity used to put them there but thats mostly constant. Bandwidth is a time limited function, not product limited. "Unused" bandwidth on a link is just wasted time with no useful data traversing the wire.
I think this will put it pretty plainly why.
If they sued someone over a remote DVD playback, then they would also license it differently and probably not under more favorable terms than "traditional" streaming.
With newer vehicles the "cranking because it won't start" isn't an option even with a key. The ECU handles that entirely so you don't even have a chance at burning out the starter.
There are a few wind power farms in Iowa.
As opposed to your ass?
Physical attacks may be easy, but attacking over network infrastructure can be coordinated without even being in the country and could take out ever target simultaneously.
What about when there isn't a provider between Netflix and AT&T? This is the case when Netflix wants to peer directly with an ISP and offers caching appliances that the ISP can host inside their network. This removes the "provider" from Netflix.
The more convenient you make it for the robot the more the robot can do instead of you. You interface with the robot, let it do the rest.
just because people dislike his playstyle doesn't mean he won't draw in more viewers. Some people enjoy hating on a guy, and they might watch him in hope of another contestant taking him down.
thinking god isn't real and being an atheist isn't the same thing. Someone might follow a faith for the moral story and community, while not believing that the deity actually exists. They could also be agnostic/non-religious, which isn't the same thing as atheism.
I believe this is a relevant quote from Jayne Cobb/Firefly
"You know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with until you understand who's in ruttin' command here."
User error can happen regardless of user interface really.
Did some searching today, and it seems Google has actually defined some extensions to add IMAP commands to support labels so clients could use them. This is the same thing I'm looking for in any replacement, because the concept of labels is the one of the biggest draws to Gmail for me, along with it's message filtering capabilities and spam filtering.
You realize it's not that easy to actually catch them texting in motion. If an enforcement officer sees it and pulls you over, how does he retrieve evidence? Taking your phone without a warrant seems like an easy to abuse stretch, and warrant-less retrieval of phone records isn't great either? What if you use Google Voice, they won't know the difference and when your records come up clean they will be stumped. These are issues I know have come up from officers here in Iowa when the issue of enforcing texting while driving laws were brought up. Simply put the law can be on the books, but officers hands are tied attempting to enforce it.
Actually Netflix is trying to get past transit ISPs as much as possible via peering. Provide free peering and caching appliances to ISPs, they get their content closer to the customer, and cut down their transit costs.
