They certainly still are in that business, it's still limited to 2 people after all. To get them out you need to revise tax, inheritance, and a slew of automatic assumptions under the law to not assume a binary or just ignore marriage altogether.

So because it's not as accurate it does not count? No this is just an easier form of papers please and because it's not as obnoxious they get away with it.

If it were facial recognition as well would that bother you? After all they could use it to look for wanted felons, probably sell it for looking for pedophiles to close to a school and expand from there.

Displayport to hdmi 2.0 cables are all of 11 bucks on amazon. Oddly think OEM's will be capable of throwing whatever chip is in there on an output.

Every decent TV I've had has been able to output it's sound via optical/coax to the receiver, hell hdmi has a standard for doing just that.

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
