Install tons of super bright IR LEDs inside the bus. Most cameras will probably pickup the IR light and it will hopefully overexpose any shots they try to take [with their phone they smuggled in after you confiscated all devices before they got on]. In addition, install IR filters on your own cameras to try to filter out the IR light being blasted inside.
It was mostly things like remote controlled power strips, IP cameras, thermostats, and electronic door locks. I'm not surprised they stopped selling the service since most of those things either don't need a computer to control (IP cameras with a built-in server or a central reciever for multiple cameras) or could just be set to a timer (power outlets and thermostats). It was a neat service for people who didn't want to put in the effort to setup their own stuff and wanted a all-in-one deal to control all of those things but kind of useless in the end.
I hope you realize Verizon Wireless and Verizon the ISP really aren't the same company.
Considering the application runs on your phone, it pulls the number from the phone automatically. You also need to log into the application using a username and password so the phone number isn't used for anything really affecting your login. The phone number is used to help anyone that has your phone number in their contacts to find you on snapchat. Unless you make your snapchat username the same as your real name, there is nothing tying some random collection of letters to your phone number other than this DB.
Also, the previous exploit only worked if you knew a valid phone number that also happened to be a snapchat user.
In some carburetors, the newer ethanol mixed gasoline will separate so that the ethanol gums up inside the carb and basically disables the engine until you break it down and clean it out. I've never had the issue with a car but I've had at least a couple of ATVs where the fuel separated after a long time in storage.
So when it gets released and pushed out over Windows Update, the average user's install won't break because some little driver has an issue with how Windows 8.1 does things. Having the RTM out early also allows OEMs to make sure they are picking hardware that will work best with Windows 8.1 and have 8.1 machines ready for to be sold when 8.1 drops. By not having an RTM, Microsoft is telling everyone to go screw themselves and that they'll have to figure out if stuff works on Release Day.
Of course not. Server software is not the cloud, duh! They are just the exact same things but different names. Don't tell the customer though.
Or I could take that $10 and buy a thousand cheap knockoffs at wholesale prices straight from China and throw them out as they die.

To be fair, the difference between XP and Vista/7 wasn't that drastic. Sure the colors changed but if anything, it was still XP underneath with an updated look (and some cool new tools). Windows 8 is where they went off on a tangent and put a little too much tablet UI in a desktop OS.
Why not just replace the man with an automatic feeding machine? Then there won't be anyone to touch the equipment. At that point you can just remove the dog from the equation as well.
Distribution via an artist's website is kind of a pain. You have to go to each of your favorite artist's site and hit download a couple of times for whatever they are offering. Distribution via torrents is much easier. Throw your band's promo torrent up on any of the popular torrent indexing sites (The Pirate Bay, Isohunt, RuTorrents, etc) and now those files are centrally available under a single website. To take it one step further, work with any of the major music streaming sites (Spotify, Pandora, even Youtube) to show links to the promo torrent files (magnet URI would work even better, no files to host). Now when ever someone streams their favorite artist, they can get the promo torrent and then get recommendations for other artists they might like and download their promo torrents too.
BitTorrent as a distribution method can be used legitimately, it just requires giving users a little taste before you start asking for money.
