There is a secret trade agreement, and Obama is supporting the secrecy. If you look at the Democrats supporting it, its going to be the most powerful ones that are running in 2016 for president and have the most sway and favor with party leadership, and detemine party dirrection.
This is what happens when you vote party line instead of looking at the issues.
it also is pre-GPS chip E911
unfortunately no. all phones pull a satellite or two starting a generation before the razr as required by law(not user accessable). even with smart phones you can turn the GPS for the same effect.
That said, cell network location is not exactly reliable. If you are in a major city, there can easily be half a million people in resolution radius. E911 is notoriously poor for location as well.
Of course there are more ways to track you besides E911 which only activates durring a phone call to 911. Government backdoors like the ablity to turn on your phone's mic and listen are present in phones of this era.
Even if you could find a phone with no spying capabilities, which is hard because all the GSM/CDMA chips are closed source, and every chip and ever device needs to be approved by the government, you'd stand out on the network as the only device without such capabilities.
Its simple, you use somthing like the Affero license so no one can make changes that you can't access. Since anyone can try, whatever good ideas other people have you can re-incorporate, so you can potentially have a far bigger unpaid developer base. If your product is known to attract hacker types as customers, they can act as force multipliers, easily. As compared to a closed program, you'll have more eyes on the code. Its also your code, and you know it better than anyone else.
Then you simply focus on having the best quality of service. You can copy software, you can't copy quality of service.
Combine these two, its not as easy as you think to compete against someone else with their own software.
You also have your brand name and reputation. which is built on that quality of service. Despite the fact that CentOS is given away for free, people pay good money for RHEL subscriptions, and RH is an economicly viable company.
The support is where the money is. The actual product is a loss leader.
Motorola Razr v3xx is probably one of the best handsets of all time.
That said, its old, uses a now non-standard charge port, and all the hacked tools are no longer readily available.(Motorola PST, Qualcom's tool, etc...)
I can't win, they know it, I know it. So fuck them.
plus I can't stand fat people
Congradulations, you are the problem. Thanks for making the Jersey Shore look intellegent by comparison. To quote Mark Twain: "Its somtimes better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you are a fool, than to open your mouth and confirm it"
nVidia fanboy since switching to Linux. A combination of them releasing their new unified driver, the latest nvidia chips being notoriously hard for nouveau, and now this, I think my next card is going to come from AMD
