Funniest thing I've read all day, and I've spent most of today on Fark.
Well, there's not much wrong with free-range, locally-sourced algae, but the real problems come from the container-bred, factory-farmed algae.
How reliable are they in winter driving conditions? How is the battery efficiency affected by temperature? What about cabin heating? I'm having a hard time seeing any of the current crop being adopted for year-round use in areas that get more than a smattering of snow, or a few days below freezing per year.

Your example falls down because the devices being bricked are in the hands of the end-users, not the store that sold them. To follow your analogy, the FBI should be going to each customer who bought a counterfeit jersey and setting it on fire in their front room.
Liberal Arts education long ago stopped being about becoming a well-rounded, intelligent individual and became an indoctrination in fitting in to the social machine.

Why not simply have that option in the car? This is all those fancy new cars with video displays, right? You just get an option that says, "There are updates available for this vehicle." Just like most software these days.
I wouldn't want this tied to smartphones, because many people do not have them. My next car will probably have some of these new 'features' , because you won't be able to buy a car without them. But I don't have a smart phone anymore, and I won't be getting one.
A rock store eventually closed down; they were taking too much for granite.
