They've been bundling the Ask toolbar with the Java installer for years now. It sounds like they are just switching to Yahoo instead - or maybe both. The article doesn't say.
This isn't a Chrome issue. This is a Java issue.
If they are only having problems with the hardware, why not just put an Amiga emulator on a new computer?
For that much money, I'm assuming they are replacing more than the computer that controls the HVAC, they are probably replacing the HVAC system itself. Neither the article or the linked video make that clear.
I've never seen the Bing toolbar bundled with anything (including any Microsoft products). As far as I can tell, it's a 100% opt-in manual download.
Of course there are intelligence agencies in Europe. The difference is that no European country conducts anything resembling the systematic highly intrusive data collection that NSA does.
Making that statement means one of three things: you are naive, you are stupid, or you are a troll.
I guess you and your fellow European citizens had better grab your pitchforks and torches because every major European country has an NSA equivalent - UK and Germany are notable examples.
I think you missed the word "country" in the question.
The American cities that are delivering best-in-the-world speeds at bargain prices are precisely the cities that aren't relying on Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, Time-Warner, etc. to run their infrastructure. In Kansas City, Google built a state-of-the-art fiber optic network largely just to prove a point. In Chattanooga and Lafayette, the government did it. At the moment, the US federal government could issue 5-year bonds at a 1.58 percent interest rate and make grants to cities interested in following Chattanooga and Lafayette down that path. But it doesn't happen, because while broadband incumbents don't want to spend the money it would take to build state-of-the-art fiber networks, they are happy to spend money on lobbying.

Based on most job postings I've read, I'd recommend about 10+ years of experience for an entry level position.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but when I take the train I don't drive it and they still put windows on the cars. The passenger area of a commercial airliner also has windows. What would I want to take the windows out of a self-driving car? I like to see where I am and where I'm going even when I'm not in charge of getting myself there.
Of course Facebook is keeping you in a bubble... of exactly the things you chose to put in your bubble. It's no different than any other source of news. Fox News, MSNBC, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post - all bubbles telling one part of one side of the story.
If you don't actively look for other sources of information or other sides points of view, your news sources aren't going to give you "fair and balanced" information.
