I miss my Google G1 phone which had a flip out mechanical keyboard, because I think I can type faster and more accurately on a mechanical keyboard than a touchscreen. So, while I'm not interested in a Blackberry, I am interested in phones with real keyboards and phones that can't be butt-dialed. e.g. the old flip phones.
Recording you car license plate seem like fair game to me -- it's in plain sight on public land. The other things, best not to argue with someone holding a loaded weapon, document it as well as you can and take them to court. Why do you have a problem with them knowing who is recording them?
Doesn't Chrome have the same problem? I've had to go into Task Manager and kill Chrome after getting the "You have a virus! Pay us money!" popup. (Have they fixed that in Chrome already?) My ex was stupid enough to actually call the phone number they put up on the screen, after which some Indian guy asked her for money.
Sounds intentional to me, now nobody can prove it that wasn't pure hydrogen and was contaminated with metal from the containment vessel. Until other experiments replicate the result, this sounds a lot more like Fleischmann Pons cold fusion than like a new state of matter.
Probably most of the 802.11ax protocol is done in firmware, not in the chip silicon. By saying it's a 802.11ax chip, they're just saying it meets the frequency demands of the current version of the spec, and they'll ship new firmware when the spec is finalized. Has that been a problem for any of the 802.11 pre-finalization chips yet?
Like global warming being increased by carbon dioxide releases, it pretty much makes sense that it would have _some_ effect. Even though 95% or so that get it free probably would just go without if they had to pay for it.
