Ok, to be precise:

Neckbeards care about firewire interoperability and wouldn't buy a PC with a proprietary connector even if they don't actually use firewire

Apple fanbois, who for some reason might have been considering a Sony laptop instead of a Macbook despite their status as fanbois, might have cared. Or they might just have bought an adapter, which they are well used to doing.

I don't see how this is different from warning people not to break other laws.

If I say to someone who is under investigation by law enforcement for trafficking narcotics "Hey, you shouldn't do that, you might get in trouble", am I committing a crime?

If my wife is driving and we are, unbeknownst to me, approaching a speed trap and I warn her to slow down, am I committing a crime?

If they pull me over for this, what do they charge me with?

This is why I do not believe google fiber is the answer. They are not going into dense cities who are underserved. They are going into over served areas and trying to take the low hanging fruit.

Well, they're going into areas that are already served and putting the garbage existing providers (Comcast, Time Warner, etc) to shame.

They have to prove that this is workable and profitable before it can go everywhere.

We can predict everything, except the future.
