I'm sorry, but what are they planning to do if their analysis suggests little Timmy is a bit depressed? Is a random post on his timeline from some stranger asking if he needs a hug really going to change anything for him? Or is FB just going to increase the rate of advertising and only show him ads for the Suicide Prevention Hotline?
No previous Windows has ever done anything so mindlessly wrong.
That is just factually incorrect. The list of mindlessly wrong things previous versions of Windows have done is worthy of it's own miniseries.
Be very careful getting rid of them, because once they are gone, re-establishing them is incredibly difficult.
The only reason the US government can maintain its pro-war stance is the idolization of the military, both men and machines, and the romanticization of war. It's very hard to make machines killing machines romantic or heroic. Event Battle Bots had to make the show as much about the builders/drivers as the competition.
Take away the romance and "heros" and all you've got left is pure patriotism and bigoted hatred. Those can take you a long way, but eventually people start noticing the cost, that today is justified with "we must keep our brave boys and girls properly supplied".
It tells you something about the skill of their design teams that AMD was able to be competitive for so long in spite of being 1-2 process generations behind Intel.

You're saying the Ruble and Hryvnia, because they have fluctuated wildly like bitcoin have been known to do, are not real currencies?

Sex, Violence, and Religion sell, to the most titillating, gory, or enraging/enrapturing limit society will accept at the time. So, in the interest of ad impressions and eyeballs, whatever you can broadcast that generates publicity and traffic is the definition of the journalists doing their job.
Don't like it? Then get us a better society, or a better species.
No, this is them annoying some of their customers (people who want to fly illegally in the DC no-fly zone) in an attempt to preempt knee-jerk over compensating by federal authorities. The feds would rather just ban the devices entirely, period.
The Feds will do so anyways, so I don't see why the manufacturer is even bothering.
