That'd look too similar to the NES emulator FCEUX.

I don't see how religion should be treated differently from The Adventures of Pinocchio or The Lord of the Rings or The Time Machine or Gulliver's Travels or something like that.
Don't answer what you would prefer the answer to be, or what you think is more likely, but look at the complexity of each of the options, and answer the question of which is more complex?
I currently get ~60 Mb up/down for $45/mo with my WISP.
How long can you keep a 60 Mbps without running into your monthly cap? The wireless Internet service providers I've looked at will cut you off after 10 GB in a month unless you insert coin to continue.
Some people used to touring can probably make a move in a day.
Perhaps "colo" here refers to the DSLAM or CMTS where the signal gets split to a neighborhood. In Archangel Michael's proposal as I understand it, a neutral party would own the colo and the last mile, but that party wouldn't connect the colo to the Internet. That'd be the job of competitive ISPs.
For a 5-man company, you may find CEOs read their own emails. For larger than that, the CEOs don't read emails. The few I know that did, used their personal email for business, and the business email was essentially forwarded to the info@ email box.
I've found that snail mail got insanely quick response. It would get to the CEO and be read. Only obvious advertisements would be withheld by helpers, and even then not aggressively so.
Oh, and ppi is stupid. Are they really implying that a 5.1 inch QHD screen is preferable to a 5.5 inch QHD, because the 5.1 has more ppi? I've used both, and much prefer the larger screen.
How about the current AA rechargeable batteries, you pick the type. Then compare the Joules in each.
You are confusing the units and such. Stick to total Joules in the device by weight. You didn't. So I assume you are the one you are the one that doesn't know what you are talking about.
Actually, on that note, I am hard pressed to think of any RTS game where I've seen a computer player populate more than one island, or build a second base.
Empire Earth (not sure which version, if not the original). The AI was told to understand that space empire will have two starting islands, and you are to conquer the foreign island, and they'd invade and build up (with local production), if you locked yourself in a small corner defensively.
My first encounter with "stupid AI" was Dune 2, where you could work out which direction the attacks were coming from (usually, a straight line from their production facility to your most valuable structure), and build a "catcher's glove" of turrets or strong tanks and wipe out everything coming at you with minimal (or sometimes no) losses.
Age of empires. The AI would build multiple home bases (town centers), so is smart for that, based on your measure, but dumber than a 2 year old in so many other ways.
They'd build walls up to (but around) trees. When the trees were cut down, it would never extend walls to protect the exposed areas. So workers, sent along with the military could take out a superior force.
Also, they won't attack a wall when there is another way in. So if you make a maze of walls, with a clear (but winding) path through, and no buildings in range to attack, they'd *always* take the long and winding path. And you can pick them off with strategically placed defenses. Few to no losses, even against massive attack forces.
so it goes nuclear when it gets shot down over their base". It's the unconventional that AIs never seem to achieve.
Reminds me of your complaints about Dune. The Harkonnen couldn't use nukes effectively. If it got to that point of the game, put a few structures away from the base, in a protective ring. The nukes will fall on them, and they'll never push to try to get a nuke to hit the make core of the base. So put all your important buildings packed tight in the corner, and unimportant ones scattered around. The AI will never do max damage with a nuke. Once you figure that out, the AI will spend more resources bombing than they kill with them.
But seriously, nearly every maker has had it happen. Sometimes with new computers. For the case I have personal knowledge about, it was from the repair center.
And no, I'm not suggesting any particular type of battery was used. I would have no idea what the military would use in a satellite. Perhaps they were willing to pay the extra cost for a sealed lead-acid battery (a more well known and well tested tech, even if heavier and less dense than laptop batteries of the day).
But a battery is a known failure problem. I've personally seen one explode - blew the hood off a car (technically, it wasn't the battery that blew, but the H2 that leaked out of the lead acid battery that collected under the hood, ignited by the starter, to blow while I watched from a safe distance when a friend was starting his car to drive home).
There have been hundreds of incidents of on-board fires in airplanes from batteries - usually laptop batteries, sometimes phones.
I recommend you consider what you are saying before you say it.
