Sadly all very large planes are inherently unsafe.
So are trains and cars (not to mention small planes, which are, mile for mile flown, much more dangerous than big planes). Everything has points of failure and is therefore unsafe in some way; the question can only be "how unsafe?"
It's not a law. It's not the government restricting what you can do in a virtual environment, and even if it were a law, that would be a First, not Second, Amendment issue. This is no different from a store having a policy of not selling guns. Or more precisely, of a flea market setting a policy that its vendors cannot sell guns (or candy or wooden nickels or whatever else they want). What would the alternative be? Should Microsoft be forced to sell guns on Xbox Live? That would be a clear First Amendment violation.
The problem is that until very recently, Apple had a near monopoly on "Wi-Fi-only smartphones", or "PDAs" as they used to be called, and there weren't any Android counterparts the way there are to the iPhone. That changed a couple months ago when Samsung introduced the Galaxy Player.
Archos has made such devices for a while, though they're not as well known (or as highly polished) as the Galaxy Player.
I need every 'smart' function except for the 'calling' ability itself. Your mileage may vary.
Then you don't need a smart phone at all. It sounds like most of what you're doing could be accomplished by an iPod touch or the Android equivalent (e.g., an Archos 3- or 4-inch tablet). The only exception would be if you are streaming the video you watch on the bus rather than downloading them via wifi. Otherwise, you're better off saving the subscription costs for a smartphone.
People who want to learn about the candidate will want to go to their web site to see their official stance on things. This is an attempt to keep the public misinformed by the opposition.
You can still do that. It's at newt.org. And how does this use of the URL "misinform" anybody"? It redirects to media reports about him, organizations he has worked for, a public-service video he appeared in with Nancy Pelosi, etc. How is any of this "misinformation"? It's information he doesn't want to emphasize in his current campaign, sure, but that doesn't make it false or even deceptive.
Nobody said computers were going to be polite.
