Just piling on the bandwagon. You can absolutely use your phone as a hotspot. In fact, the FCC made them allow it. http://venturebeat.com/2012/07...
I recently switched from Verizon to Cricket to save some money and went from a Galaxy S4 to a Galaxy Express. The S4 was snappy, no lag opening apps, unlocked right away and so on. The Express would often lag switching apps or even unlocking the screen. When I had it synced via bluetooth with my car stereo and I would skip a song, it would take 3 or 4 seconds to actually skip, where the S4 was instantaneous. I know it seems petty, but when you're used to speed, it's hard to go back. I ended up biting the bullet and getting a Nexus 5. Life is good again.
I'm no hardware expert so the following question isn't rhetorical. How hard is it really to capture the audio output going to your speakers? Unless they put some kind of encryption into them like with HDMI, it seems to me that they are a little short sighted to say the least saying this is non-piratable.
I was in a similar situation. My parents always told me I was so smart because I could do some things on the computer so I pursued a career in IT. Most miserable 10 years of my life. What was once a hobby, became a chore that I wasn't any good at because I only enjoyed doing the things I was interested in. If I wasn't interested in it, like networking, servers, and such, I completely lacked motivation to do it. I've since found my passion and am on my way to working in that field.

I should have tried harder in high school and college so I could really understand all this space stuff.
How would this effect the pilots depth perception? If it did, would it even matter?
No, but I own a small shop with a couple of rental computers and I'm seeing more and more (young) people who don't even know access the web on anything other than their smart phone let alone write software and build a circuit.
Because, you know, everybody is an engineer.
Just wait for a few iterations of Mac OS until Apple says the latest one will not work on your still perfectly functional hardware.
In theory it gets atrociously bad politicians out of office. I've never seen it work in practice though. They did it to Cynthia McKinney here in Georgia but then the voters in that district got stuck with Hank Johnson who thought Guam was going to tip over so I don't think they really came out ahead on that one.
It's technically possible. War Thunder just arrived for PS4 and there is cross-platform gameplay. PS4 players are easily denoted in-game by the * next to their name which doesn't do them any favors since the general consensus is that keyboard/mouse controls are far superior to controller.
So other comcast customers can stroll through and leech my bandwidth, that I pay for? Good thing I don't use a comcast wifi router.
This was happening to me 2 years ago. How is this just now becoming "news"?
When you've got billions of dollars in the bank, who cares if what you're doing is illegal. The worst that will happen to large corporations is some fines numbering in the millions which is peanuts to them. Now if you or I did this, we'd be out of business.
