Without a hearing? The hearing happened, and they lost big time. At this point, they are just repeating vague and badly grounded accusations.
I've recently been pawing through my old Basic manuals (I'm implementing a Basic environment for run). And what stands out is how incomplete and limited most of the old environments were (although I did love them at the time).
The Basics were grossly limited. Examples includes the Sinclair AND and OR statements, the very limited FN statements and severe limitations on FOR loops. Given the high expense of disks in those days, it's no surprise that disk handling was uneven at best.
Networking capabilities were trivial to non-existent, and mostly non-existent.
The connection to their environment was deeply weird. From a modern perspective, the first thing we normally do when we see a bit of hardware is to wrap it in a little bit of code to make it simpler to control. The common pattern in the old days was to revel in the POKE and PEEK statements, directly setting hardware registers.
The difference between then and now is that then my plan was to write an program to play lunar lander. My plan today is to write a program that will listen to my mailboxes and change the color of my lights accordingly ("Make it pink!", "Make it blue!")
You'll need some kind of cite for that "was bragged about..." bit. Everything I've read is that it's just not true; that none of the states (for example) realized that by not setting up an exchange that they would be at a disadvantage.
So, of that persons comments, the one about branded actually makes sense. Different companies actually do work on different frequencies (and there's a bunch of other differences; frequency is just part of it). Once we posit that some microwaves cause problems, it's very reasonable that different frequencies would cause more or fewer problems.
There are multiple wineries in Alaska (and they all seem to be new).
I'm going to rephrase what you said, and change it. Don't whine at your boss. Don't complain at your boss.
But do ask for advice ("this other team is delivering really slowly, how should I handle it?", or, "I think I have a better solution for the problem of the day, but I'm having trouble advocating for it, can you help me?")
And let them know when you're behind. My company takes the output of many, many teams and sells the result; there's nothing they hate more than surprises.
The alternative (and I've done it..) is "write once, port everywhere."
What used to be an long, frustrating process (what do you mean, 'unlink' doesn't work?) is now almost trivial.
I've got several apps in the store. Most of the UI code is fully shared, and moderately adoptive to screen size. In a few places, I needed something special for one or the other.
My trick is that the 8.1 universal apps have two mainpage.xaml files (one for desktop, one for phone). I just make a shared UserControl. Each MainPage just has one object, which is the shared control
(BTW: I work at Microsoft, but not in the group that does XAML; my way works but that doesn't mean there isn't a better way)
It's called, "the general operations budget" I work for a big company; from on high we get general guidelines ("computers are expected to last xyz years" and "you have abc to spend on travel this year"). itt's up to the more lower-level people to decide how to portion it out.
In the FCC's case, congress has already given them money to inforce their regulations (and gave them the authority to make the regulations, but also gave them requirements like hainvg a certain number of public hearings). The FCC can then spend it on those things.
So you're in favor of government regulations for conduit? Because seriously, none of the existing companies are very willing to share their expensive conduit, and nobody will build it for "everyone" unless they can get some serious customers.
How's this for a counter-example? Orchestras used to have a ton of reasons why women were grossly under-represented -- they just weren't interested, they didn't have the skills, they didn't have the long-term ability -- whatever. But when orchestras started to have players audition behind curtains, suddenly a lot of talented women started getting hired.
Right now there are plenty of teachers who literally don't want women in their high-tech classes. This bill helps solve that problem, and doesn't let the teacher weasel their way out with cop-out answers.
Quote: "within their jurisdiction". That means that the court has ordered (in compliance with your rights) that certain data be discovered or turned over. Seriously, folks: the police do get to investigate crimes. If they need to look at your car (or, in 18th century terms, your horse), they get to.

Despite many Republican voters’ disdain for the Affordable Care Act, parts of the country that lean the most heavily Republican (according to 2012 presidential election results) showed significantly more insurance gains than places where voters lean strongly Democratic. That partly reflects underlying rates of insurance. In liberal places, like Massachusetts and Hawaii, previous state policies had made insurance coverage much more widespread, leaving less room for improvement. But the correlation also reflects trends in wealth and poverty. Many of the poorest and most rural states in the country tend to favor Republican politicians.
