You got him!!! He is a comedian, he was definitely not joking about this.
How about dropping the G+ requirement for adding photos to a Hangouts conversation next? This is completely nonsense as well. I end up having to GMAIL images to the very same contact.
Do you think it is about time for the change? Or should it remain illegal in the US?"

Because rounded corners is not a design, it's a design element. It's like patenting colors. Do you want that? Everyone has to pick unique colors for everything?
You can trademark color combinations already.
Simply put, not everyone is capable of everything. We already have these problems today with plenty of work options, taking away the lowest skilled options exacerbates the problem.
He chose to.
He also pretends to be a doctor because he received an honorary degree.
Musk is an exception to this. He is pretty technical.
Reminds me of the chapter in Neal Stephenson's The Confusion (part of The Baroque Cycle). Japanese mercury vendors try to disable the Minerva (an armed merchant vessel) by filling its cargo hold with half-filled pots of mercury, rather than filling them to the brim. The idea is that the sloshing in the hull would resonate with the waves at the entrance to the harbour and slow the ship enough to be captured (or something to that effect). There's a discussion of whether Stephenson got the science correct here.
I am not sure if you are being facetious, but a more affordable car is in the works.
Here is a recent video interview with Elon Musk where he says that the third model released by Tesla Motors will be more affordable:
You might be selling the masses short by assuming they will not notice. Remember, you are seeing an sRGB version of theCIE 1931 color space, the greens that are omitted (that you monitor is probably not capable of displaying anyway) are colors that many people see everyday for 3 seasons a year.
TBH, I am not worried about what other people do. I calibrate every display that I use (sans my mobile devices) for both high and low light situations and fine tune every setting. Most people do not do this now, but the media and the technology is here.
CIE 1931 is considered the full space of color that is discernible by the human eye. Both Rec. 701 and Rec. 2020 are subsets of the CIE 1931.
You complaint is one of aspect ratio actually and since 1080p and 4k UHD are 16:9, I do not see how 4k would be an improvement for you on the same size panel; you will need to be able to read the text.
On a side note, have you considered rotating your monitor? I have a 1680 x 1050 in portrait mode that is great for academic/professional production.
In practice people cant tell the difference between 6 bit and 10 bit colour.
That is unfair.
Rec 2020 not only increases the resolution of the color space, it also increases the area covered in the CIE 1931. In other words, it is not just the same color gamut with less quantization, it is a much larger color space entirely.
