If you can't make a solid business case, you're wasting your time. Present a solid business case which shows a cost/benefit analysis. If the numbers don't make sense, you'll be out of luck.
Video is only really helpful if you know who it is you are watching.
you should never jump out of a perfectly good airplane.
Teachers educate students.
You must not have watched the entire video. The advice is "Don't talk to the cops without an attorney". There is always time later to confess, but the fundamental reality of our criminal justice system is that it is a bargaining table. A suspect who gives up everything they have to bargain with at the very beginning is ultimately unable to win a fair sentence. Again, the U.S. Criminal Justice system is a bargaining table. Lawyers know this. Judges know this. Pretty much all legal professionals know this. Therefor, don't talk to the cops *without a lawyer*.
Soon, we'll find them in Big Lots selling for $99
When a staff member came to me the first time and asked for help setting up mail on his Blackberry, I told him I'd get back to him after I researched it. Once I figured out that you had to provide complete logon credentials to RIM, I banned the devices. Staff can have them if they wish, but they are not to be used with our corporate mail (or any other) systems.
Back then, RIM gave you two options - give up your corporate security or buy a $3000 machine from RIM to talk to Blackberries. IMO, neither option was acceptable.
Make a strong business case to support the budget levels you actually need. It may be that 10% or even 20% reduction isn't a bad idea. If you can't support your "needs" with a business case, you don't need it.
You haven't driven a recent version of the S60, have you?
It's time to move on. Labor and work will soon be relics of the past. We need to find an economic model that functions without those things. As efficiency continues to improve, the human workforce becomes more and more obsolete.
I read the developers whining about piracy, but they never seem to have any independent source study to cite which confirm these numbers. Anecdotal evidence immediately available to me suggests that they are full of crap. I know 15 or so Android users and none of them pirate anything. This is like Az. Governor Jan Brewer citing beheadings in the desert as the reason for the need of stronger immigration controls (there were no such beheadings - she made it up). Before statements like this are even seriously discussed, show us the independent sources.
I said it back in '01 and I'll repeat it now. By giving up our freedom in the name of security, we have allowed the terrorists to prevail. Pursue them. Hunt them down. Deal with those who have harbored them as enemies of the US. But we should never have relinquished a single liberty for the sake of security.
Benjamin Franklin said it best:
"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

It's called an Ignition Switch. Car won't stop accelerating? Turn it OFF.
When I was in High School (30+) years ago, Drivers Education spent a lot of time going over police video/film from accident scenes. Un-cut. All the gruesome results in brilliant full color. Most of us learned that 4000+ pounds of steel and glass + high velocity + inattention = gruesome consequences.
Those reels should be mandatory for every driver. Not everyone will "get it", but enough will.
