Zero, as they close up shop.
If you are too stupid to figure out that 'buy' = $ then perhaps you are too stupid to have a digital device in the first place.
What is next, a disclaimer at the car dealer "you have to buy gas and tires.. " so they cant be sued?
Of course there are already laws, but if the legislature didnt keep passing redundant laws like this, what else would they do?
And yes its about taxes, and squelching anonymity..
I would agree, but they tend to kill, cook and eat the goose.
Not saying this was planned, but you can be sure this will be used to distract the US from the current events here..
nice gesture, but its too late now.
Freedom lost even before the battle begun.
Can only help create more interest in seeing the movie in the theater on the 'big screen'. Unless the movie is total crap, as then people will know upfront not to waste their money on a defective product, that they cant get a refund on.
I had a old 'databank' watch back in the mid 90's ( casio? ) and while i thought it was a great idea when i bought it, " i can have my addresses and stuff in here", after about a month it just ended up being a gaudy way to tell the time that needed batteries.
Unless its something like they had on ARK-II back in the 70's, ( and that would not be too practical ) a smart watch will always be a gimmick, unless there is some sort of way to make the screen appear bigger than it is.
Not being a Luddite, or not 'thinking outside the box', its far to small to be really useful other than for telling time. Just from the proliferation of larger screen phones you can tell that going smaller is not the direction people want to go for usability or functionality.
Sure, you can have alarms, and scrolling banners.. but your phone can do that, and so much more, without the 'squint' limitation...
A license to buy something that naturally occurs outdoors?
Is that any worse than making it illegal to own what is essentially a weed?
But that doesn't catch anyone's attention. Its all about marketing and ad revenue, ya know.
Really, even the content isn't relevant thesed ays as its all about how many hits you can get to your page
It may not be as grey as you think.
Example: Buying spores for psilocybin mushrooms could well be illegal, as it shows 'conspiracy to commit', which is illegal in its own right... The spores contain noting, but there is no other use for them but to create illegal substances so its really hard to make up an excuse.. This is no difference than your business proposal.
I also think in some US states ( and countries ) possession of the spores was declared illegal outright....
Great, i like making bread.. Will i now have to get a license to buy yeast ?
When you outlaw yeast.. only outlaws will eat sandwiches..
There is also a female joke in there too, but ill leave that one alone.
You wont be buying a sound-blaster....
