I don't always use those three letters and punctuation together in one word, but when I do, I prefer 'tis.
Sure it is off-topic. But you have to admit that this is a far more interesting topic of discussion than the article. Blackberry. Yawn.
If any company could lay cable in a town, there would be more competition and better prices.
There is little justification for that position. Instead, it is far more likely that there would be no cable laid or prices would be higher. This sort of infrastructure is known as a Natural Monopoly.
Oh yes in the 1960s all "lab" grade electronics like power supplies, oscilloscopes, whatevers, came with thick manuals with schematics, part lists and theory of operation as well as the basic user manual.
That's still the norm for many Amateur Radio products. What is missing from many products supplied by the big name manufacturers these days is source code for the embedded MCUs.
Many radios and test equipment used to be available in kit form too. But that has gone away since the advent of surface mount technology. Most Amateurs don't have the equipment, patience or eyesight to do SMT at home. Besides, pick and place robots will assemble a circuit board in minutes, reducing labor cost to a few cents per board. So, instead of saving a bunch of money on hand-built hardware as it used to, it actually costs more to offer kits than it does fully assembled boards. The technical support costs for kits is pretty high.
If board members and directors are found "personally liable" then why bother incorporating in the first place?
Are you telling me that all I have to do to get away with murder is form "Murder Inc." -- sorry, I meant "Loving Hands, Inc."? And then as chairman I can just hire a hit man and shield myself from liability? Shweet!!

I'm sure he's exactly as Michelangelo painted him on the Sistine Chapel's ceiling in one of the other universes. And one of those universes in our multiverse is a place called hell.
It is a solid, falsifiable theory. At least as solid as any of the other multiverse theories I've come across so far.
