I have a coworker who's holding on to his Note 7. He's been staying on top of all of this. It appears that after a recall, a company cannot require nor continue requiring payment for a recalled device. Some may argue that he has a loan he still owes Verizon, but it appears also that Samsung bought out all those loans.
There has been no word from Verizon that they will prorate service contracts since they are effectively disabling service...that's gotta be some kind of illegal.
I haven't confirmed any of the above, as I don't care, but I do find it interesting.
I think Verizon and the other carriers have done all they should do for the recall; my coworker even got the fire-proof box shipped to his house for the return. He likes the phone, he knows about the (extremely minor) risk, and wants to keep the phone. All Verizon is doing with this is pissing off those few thousand customers.
A 50 percent increase is not even close to doubling deliveries...
Hey now, this is no place for maths and reasoning!
...connected to a screen with a keyboard and mouse
Interesting. I've never seen a keyboard and mouse used to connect a device to a screen. This truly is newsworthy!

You might be spending too much time on Slashdot.
Don't listen to him. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
So.... is this a bad law or a good law? I don't know whether or not be outraged...
Yes. You definitely should...
Please spare me the "people being ale to speak their minds" BS.
I originally read this as "Please spare me the 'people bring ale to speak their minds' BS." I thought to myself: that's not BS, people DO bring ale to speak their minds. And now the company can't sue you for what you speak your mind, having brought ale. Sort of.
He[Putin] publicly accused her[Clinton] of encouraging street protests.
Considering the street protests after she lost, this seems to be the most accurate part of the article.

So nothing of value was lost.
This is why I love Slashdot.
Gotcha, but that's not what I meant; I was referring to parent's "little box" and meant pulling the transponder and system out of the rolled vehicle to use nefariously. No need to build a device, when everything's already there. Just pull it apart, spoof some sensors, and it will tell vehicles whatever you want.
I can see VIN or MAC filtering, such that when a vehicle is taken out of service due to something like a rollover, its VIN/MAC is then ignored on the network...but big deal, spoof another VIN/MAC.
This is going to be abused. People will have so much fun with this, it'll be unreal. Imagine a little box you can buy/build that spoofs a vehicle system and tricks all the cars in a 100 meter radius into executing an emergency stop...
Yea, that won't be difficult to extract from a rolled vehicle at all...
"poles less compressed" means the poles are farther apart, effectively elongating the planet along its spinning axis. This will "shrink" the equator; statement is correct.

Slashdot's quote on the bottom of the page: "In any formula, constants (especially those obtained from handbooks) are to be treated as variables."
If you didn't have to work so hard, you'd have more time to be depressed.
