What I find offensive here is the dual standard being applied. There are plenty of apps on the poorly named "Play Store" that openly state that they require the user to Root the device. And others relating to Rooting or encouraging Rooting by offering more features if the device is Rooted. Why are not all of those considered to be encouraging the users to be voiding their warranties? This looks to me like this one application was selectively targeted and then a reason was fabricated that contradicts with many of the other thing that I see openly offered.
Let us give thanks that the United States is going to protect us from those dirty third world countries that want to impose basic human rights of privacy on us.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
1 in 7 people in the world have some sort of disability, (including the fact that 1 in every 10 U.S. children has been diagnosed with ADHD)
Didn't even need to read the whole review, let alone the book. The first summary was enough. I'm sure that he could even get those figures looking worse, why not include other popular trending disabilities like peanut allergies and "Celiac disease"? I also feel that being a dyslexic white male with a bad attitude should entitle me to one of those reserved parking spots.
Are we talking true electric or hybrid here?
Both can be more expensive to maintain if you keep the car long enough to replace the batteries. If you don't keep it that long then it becomes the next chump's problem, but you still feel it in reduced resale value.
Pure electrics have a serious problem with range. A multi-car family might be able to work with that for one of the cars, but a single person gets screwed. And they really get screwed if they have a second car that they use for longer trips, they end up being forced to buy liability insurance on each car, even though they can only drive one at a time. Note that I'm talking about the required liability insurance here, not the usually optional collision or comprehensive insurance. And I don't believe the big lie that the insurance is on the car, not the driver. Get a teen-age driver in the family and watch what happens to the liability insurance rate on the same car, or get points on you license or a DUI. The insurance is clearly on the driver, but that driver has to pay for it again if he wants a spare car to resolve the range problem. There is no way that I would ever buy an electric car (or even a tiny high mileage gas powered car with no carrying capacity) unless the lawmakers stop taking their instructions from insurance company campaign donations and clear up this insurance company windfall.
Yea, but this one doesn't phone home.Thanks to a "National Security Letter" it phones directly to the NSA. Not that it maters, since the NSA is closely monitoring all of the TOR portals anyway.
Security Theater, it's not just for airports anymore.
SHOW ME THE PROOF
I would, but look what happened to the last brave American who tried that. I don't want to have to seek asylum in Russia and ask some crime ridden South American country to take me in, nor watch my back every minute for the U.S. agents trying to kidnap or kill me. The President talked big about protecting whistle blowers before this happened, but then all of that was quietly removed from his website Everyone of us that actually has the proof knows better than show it to you.
