HTTPS is only sufficient until ISPs install proxies and give all the technophobe morons who are proud to proclaim "I don't know about all them flashing lights and stuff!" a nice little "internet installer" CD that sets the proxy as a trusted root, or has the tech who comes out because the customer is too proud of their ignorance to connect a coax cable between two coax ports and an ethernet cable between two ethernet ports install it for them.

Some people don't give a shit about data usage, hence having automatic downloads on. Some people DO give a shit about having shit music forced into their library without their consent. I like all _my_ music, so my playlist is everything-on-random. It's MY playlist, not Apple's playlist, and they can keep their shit out of it.

Microsoft has had plenty of time to fix that, either via an utterly simple string replacement, or a minutely less-simple calculation (size / (1024^n / 1000^n) where n is the power of thousands in size). I wonder how much of a kickback Microsoft took from the lawyers in the frivolous lawsuits against Western Digital and others.
