And everyone in the industry recognizes this and we are already seeing stratification of the game development into good/better/best categories. Everything you listed is being addressed on some level. The PC and console development system is coalescing into one pipeline that addresses good/better/best hardware configs, and tailors the build for a specific platform at the end.
Reduce copyright to a sane length and make an exception to allow breaking encryption for the purposes of backup and we'll talk. Until then, the social bargain that is copyright is broken.
An elected civil servant, who is responsible to the citizenry, taxes have nothing to do with it. We could pay him purely from tariff money and it wouldn't change his obligations.
No matter what you set up on a PC they will break it somehow. Trust me on this one. The best I.T. decision I ever made was giving my mother-in-law an ipad.
"It's all the disadvantages of a console " You are joking right? I have full Linux under the hood with root and it has all the disadvantages of console?????? REALLY??? You are WAY out of touch here.
What they have done is illegal under the 4th, no matter how badly you want to excuse their interpretation. Thier orders clearly violate the 4th and they should have been protesting such illegal actions, not enacting them. I dont excuse those that execute other's illegal will.

You are engaging in doublethink.
If you read their papers it is absolutely clear what they meant.

I disagree to a point. Corporations operate amorally, its important to remember that when applying moral arguments to them.
A kid growing up in Detroit in the 90s wouldn't be caught dead in a foreign car. I knew guys who wouldn't let you park in their driveway if you drove a foreign car. Mustangs/Camaros/Grand Nationals are what we had to work with.
First of all its a drunk driving case, so hes on the wrong side of the argument to begin with. IN THAT light, i can see Florida extended their rights to private roadways in the name of safety. However, i dont feel that this particular argument would apply to privately placed stop signs, due to the fact that they are arbitrarily placed by untrained/unauthorized personnel.
You do realize that paddle shift is used in F1, right?
Its called fly-by-wire because the entire idea was pulled from planes. Also, you can accurately call operating a motor vehicle 'piloting'
