When did this kind of shit become the norm for Slashdot?
NSA to the people:
PFCHFHFCHFHF! Yeeeeah. We'll "stop" "wiretapping."

And that's a serious problem.
When there's a new version of iOS, I get it the day it's released.
When there's a new version of Windows, I get it the day it's released.
When there's a new version of Ubuntu, I get it the day it's released.
When there's a new version of Android, I get it when I buy a new phone.
Which OS has the problem?
I'm not sure how many of those are actual words and how many of them you're making up.
It's simple: If your law says you can slap your wife anytime you like and kill your daughter if she offends you, you don't get nuclear power.
You know exactly how that would go.
GM would start producing luxury cars made out of "food."
Cable boxes would come with heart rate monitors so cable TV could be considered a "medical expense."
Yes, it gets people to slow down until immediately after the speed trap, then they speed up again.
So the only result is traffic congestion and speeding tickets.

That is literally all I use it for.
I'm just saying.
I speed all the time and I use Waze to know when to slow down.
It's also a big topic of conversation at the dinners I have to sit through with money-grubbing shitfaced sociopathic CEOs.
It's called retrocharging.
It works on the same model as MMORPG's and DLC except it's more insidious: The company threatens to take away something you already have unless you pay them more money.
Comcast does this. They are now doing "account audits" after which they send you a letter telling you they're going to start charging for features they claim you have always had but haven't been paying for.
Speed cameras are bad because the speed people drive is determined not by the law, but by the speed other people drive.
It is collective reasoning that decides how fast people drive.
That's why when you're driving down I-280 the speed limit is 65 but everyone drives 80.
If you put speed traps all up and down I-280 it's not going to slow people down, it's just going to punish poor people who are driving the same speed as wealthy people.

Mostly managers complain about open floor plans because they have to actually prove that they have an entire day's worth of work to do and justify their salary.
