Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
All the rest of the post is perfectly valid, but doesn't apply to red lights. The biggest danger at red lights is someone won't notice when the light turns green. They deserve a big fine at that point - it's bad enough not notice the light turning green normally, but missing it because you're texting is a clear indicator of careless driving. Meanwhile, stopping at a light you're familiar with, typing in a map destination while keeping your eye on the light... none of this is dangerous or inconvenient for other drivers. About five posts on this story have basically said they hate texters who don't go on green, yet none suggested that they should be busted after the light turns green.
More likely, Jessie is pulling over people before the light turns green.
Just a few weeks ago, I searched for Mystery Men on Youtube. To my great surprise, a legal version was available for $10 - the $10 allows you to watch it on YouTube as many times as you want. Well, I bought it just to support legal digital downloads, but for hell's sake, how many people are going to pay $10 for Mystery Men in 2013? Newer movies close the price gap a little better, but I never see them being advertised for digital download.
Since early adopters are more savvy, Sony has every reason to tout their lack of DRM compared to the Bone, for now. Will their DRM be better throughout the generation? Unless Sony makes a pledge (and really, even if they do), it's their choice, not ours.
