Laptops are hardly lighter just because the drive is removed. The DVD drive weight is nothing compared to the battery. While the battery is obviously more important that doesn't take away from the fact the DVD drive barely adds anything on top of that.
Even if that number is correct that goes by google's definition. I'd say many of the apps in their own store are harmful because they ask for too many permissions and you have little you can do about it thanks to google's all or nothing approach to permissions.
I'd actually be more likely to believe it's a desperate US or UK agency trying to prove why they need to take our freedoms away than China. There's so much anti-china stuff out there. Why pick github? But as well apparently British airways and slack are being attacked. What would China have against British Airways? Something doesn't make quite make sense.
Surely the fair thing to do is to let every other bigoted group ban who they want.

Everyone looked forward to getting all of sega's great games on any system when they got out of the hardware business. But unfortunately they seemed to lose all their talent with the hardware and just resorted to knocking out Sonic games and the odd Crazy Taxi game. At his best Sonic was never that good.

That's just stupid. Technology can replace jobs. Saying that just because factories didn't take jobs away from farmers forgets that the reason for that is because you're changing different jobs but they require humans to do them. The point of using robots and computers is to reduce the number of people required. And no, not everyone can be a programmer. If they could then programming would be a minimum wage job.
I'm not sure why anyone would contribute to Google maps. Who works for one of the world's largest corporations for free?
Sure if you only care about frivolous features and constant tinkering to make the experience worse.
Home schooling is something parents do when they're religius nuts or child abusers. No kid would want to be stuck with their parents 24 hours a day and slowly become a socially retarded pariah.
they wont get support for modified software obviously.
You need some super specs then.
It's interesting but hardly a concern given the requirements to make it work.
I'm not sure what space has to do with this and if such a person exists you seem to be the only person that holds a grudge against them.
A collection of obscenely wealthy guys are upset that life won't let them get their way. Maybe if they at least admit they're scared shitless about it they can get their way.
