Do you honestly believe that? Less than half the country votes in a presidential election, far fewer vote in congressional elections, and fewer still in primaries. Just how many do think would bother to vote in the other parties primary? Sure they will be some radical nut jobs willing to do this but not anywhere near enough to matter.

In some instances yes it can. Economies of scale. Price per unit tends to decrease as the number of units ordered increase.

ISP's need to/should have enough capacity to cover peak usage periods. If you have 10 customers on a line that all watch netflix in hd between 5pm and 10pm, then you need to have enough capacity to cover that time period.

Once that capacity is in place however it's available 24/7 regardless if anyone is using it or not. Therefore caps make no sense, unless you happen to be a content provider as well as an isp and are competing with netflix. Then a transfer cap would make sense to limit your customers use of netflix in favor of your service.

Hmm, to be honest I can't remember the last time I've even seen a 2 seater pickup truck. Old trucks with benchs had 3 seats, and most of the new trucks I see today are extended cabs with 2 seats in the rear. Granted to extra seats are jokes, but it's still a seat.

All this really tells you is that Titanfall isn't really a next gen title at all, which should be obvious as it was originally planned for the 360 to start with and will be released on it shortly. It runs about as well as your typical console to pc port, which is basically what it is, a xbox360 to xboxone port.

In every non-trivial program there is at least one bug.
