I would absolutely, without reservation, shoot those down.
Enjoy that federal felony conviction.
Not an opinion, but a fact. They say what the government wants them to say. They are out pushing for war with the worst of them.
So what you're saying is that you don't actually read the Washington Post, and are just making stuff up.
The article says they're not aiming at Apple. Instead they're actually jumping, feet first, into the commodity smartphone market. Which might seen suicidal, but, again as the article points out, that's where Scully actually excels (and probably why he didn't get as far with Apple, which was never commodity based, when he was at the helm.)
Essentially he's going to be selling nice, but not spectacular, Android phones, and using branding to differentiate the phones in the market. And he'll probably make a success of it because instead of having the overhead of a giant electronics company to contend with, unlike say Samsung, he's just having a third party put together a design, then outsourcing the manufacture of the thing, concentrating largely on quality (which affects brand) rather than features (which doesn't.)
It's not actually that exciting to nerds. The news is probably orgasm-worthy though if you work in marketing.
Oh bla bla bla. You are just rationalizing the absurd.
Yes, it is absurd that people become violent and crazy, and they do things like hold hostages or grab kids or attack people, or force stand-offs. If people wouldn't do absurd crap like that, then the absurd crap like that they do wouldn't happen right in front of us every week. The fact that you're pretending it doesn't happen is curious though. What do you think that achieves? It's an odd personality quirk, at least.
You really stand tall for all this authoritarian shit
I see. So if one of YOUR family members is being held or threatened by some loon, you'd rather that member of your family get hurt than the cops use a taser to subdue the person who's the problem? Or would you rather they use lethal force? Or would you rather they simply walk away so that nobody can accuse them of being "authoritarian," using any sort of force against a person who, after all, hasn't yet killed your family member, he's just promising to if anyone comes close to him.
You don't actually understand what "authoritarian" means, do you?
It's not famous or widely used, but my pet project MSS Code Factory started in 1998 and has kept me busy ever since. I think I'll finally be finished with it this year, though. I think it's time to find something new to occupy my mind and my time with.
What a stunningly stupid idea. We can't settle for littering the places we actually go to; we have to send our crap to places we don't even visit.
The whole concept smacks of being a "Rube Goldberg" contraption to me. While I could see a very small segment of the market liking the idea of replacing components and doing partial upgrades, I'm pretty sure that the mass market will stick with integrated one-piece units that don't fall into a pile of blocks when dropped.
To say nothing about the ridiculous price. Especially for a service that's unlikely to be used in any given month. F'em all.
If it's not working all the time, it's not working. That's the whole point of these systems. A lot of what it offers (like, knowing where your 85 year old grandpa's car is when he's late coming back from golfing and not answering his phone) isn't useful if it's only online and using its SIM card and burning some bandwidth when the driver decides just that moment to turn it on. If $15 bucks for a mobile device's connectivity and use of their services is too much for you, just don't buy it. There are plenty of people who would like some OnStar-type services on a vehicle that wasn't factory equipped for it, and the cost of two sandwiches a month is simply no big deal.
You think commercial operation will be better
Yes. My experience in observing the habits and practices of both suggests very strongly that enthusiastic recreational multirotor fliers aren't nearly as thoughtful about things as are commercial users. Most recreational fliers are used to operating in very sedate, controlled spaces like AMA fields. Commercial operators are thinking about way, way more factors before, during, and after a planned flight.
