Fantasy, unless it's well and thoroughly regulated. Capitalism when free incentivizes monopolization and centralization of power and eliminates competition. Seems like everything else does too. We're doomed.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
It's not only sound quality that's subjective, price is too. For some $200 for a pair of speakers is a lavish expense. Others may much more for just a cable.
Do they sound better when you pay more for them?
Anyone commenting here is guilty of being distracted by irrelevant trivia.
Don't running gangs and smuggling phones have their own penalties? Does it matter (illegal activity) if it's done via FB, or via carrier pigeon, or via verbal whispering? It's the illegal activity that should be being prosecuted, not the online access. And doing it online just provides a neat "paper" trail - ask your friends in Utah for a dump of every I/O from your devices.
Macro-object anti-virus protection in 3 dimensions. Develop macrophages that identify, target, and dispose of invading objects with little to no collateral damage to surrounding areas (residential, for example), little to no disturbance to the area on an on-going basis. Not just for the White House, but for lots of other attractive targets (industry centers, nuke plants, famous attractions, etc.) A new industry becomes public as well as a new operational environment we'll all be getting used to.

Then get hold of some of the script for this movie, your superlatives are about to be reset.
Can't say I didn't laugh, but I felt I was watching The Two Stooges Play James Bond in North Korea.
Speaking of debts, after you find the STEM topic that interests you most (motivation should be key to choosing what to study), and identify the kind of program you want to apply for, get as much of the requirements done at inexpensive community college or other local institutions with transferrable credits. A few years ago my local community college offered classes at $70 a credit or less - books often cost more. To me that's almost free.
And vote to elect people who will fight for less profits made off student loans, and even for more subsidies for eduction.
Hard to believe 20% of the staff, including some senior writers, would all quit as an overreaction to some email. But as you say we don't know the details.
Imagine working for years at a small well-regarded tech company (assuming you're more familiar with tech companies) with 56 employees that gets bought out. What kind of actions would cause 12 of your long time valued employees to up and quit?
Anyone aware of a site publishing current and accurate infection rate info?
