Sarcasm? Plastic melting heat + alcohol = no more dishwasher, house, kids, dog, and car.
At least not i your home. I have a friend who's a forensic fire investigator and do oyu know the number one thing to burn your house down? Dishwasher. It gets hot, uses a lot of electricity, and is filled with pressurized water. As one who ignore "no user serviceable parts" I took this one to heart.
What a shit pile of humanity that was.
So guns are not the solution to gun violence. Duly noted.
"each round is accounted for" such a lie. Have a friend who was in Canadian Military and did training in the US. If you lost your magazine your were fucked. They were bitching to the US quartermaster and he gave them a handful with the understanding no one really cared.
Give em a command line, a compliler, and a programming language. If they want multi purpose make em make it.

Sony has at one point sued its **fucking self** take that in to account.

8 Immersion beyond 1 m The equipment is suitable for continuous immersion in water under conditions which shall be specified by the manufacturer. However, with certain types of equipment, it can mean that water can enter but only in such a manner that it produces no harmful effects.
No mention of salt so fuck snorkling. If it is not made out of a sealed portless glass block. marine grade stainless or brass it is not going in the ocean. But i've dropped more than one phone out of a chest pocket into a stream pong or river. It if makes it through that it is better than the alternative.
Do you know what false advertising is in fact? "A reasonable person must believe it." Catch 22; no reasonable person would believe any advertising so it is hard to get a conviction. Here it might be more cut and dry because they claim an IP68 standard which does mean something. Either way I'd rather have a phone that tries to IP68 than one that doesn't. I've had a S3 Active and I took a lot of underwater video with it but I seated my cover correctly every time. The new Sony have a open USB port that is IP68 or was obviously until a rational engineer told the marketing folks that that they cannot claim X. I honestly have NO IDEA why we need any ports on any phone at all. Sure I love me some 2 batteries but with Qi, NFC, Wifi, Cloud Sync, Chromecast et al. I would be happy having all those things like USB, SIM, SD, and whatever under screw down o-ring bezels.
What good are laws? The bad people don't obey them and the good people don't need them.
Why not just make self healing limestone instead?
