Comment Re:Meaningless Clause. (Score 1) 273

The supreme court has already ruled that a company's ToS can legally require you to forgo class action lawsuits in favor of individual arbitration, so apparently they feel that there's still some method of achieving compensation, despite the fact that a class action lawsuit is made up of a lot of small claims which no lawyer would have any interest in representing on an individual basis.

And how many different devices with Android are on the market at the same time? There's a difference between doing 2 major updates for one specific piece of hardware on one (now two) carriers, and doing multiple updates on dozens of different phones, all with different hardware, across multiple carriers. Although this is also why people have been complaining that google needs to force manufacturers to conform to some kind of spec if they want to use android.

I'm trying to figure out how requiring the school district to enact it instead of it being enacted directly by the state makes it better, or how the school districts having a year to draft the policy makes it better. Those aren't even relevant to the conversation and you act as though the outcry hinges upon who's enacting the policy and the timeframe in which they will do so.

Comment I reduced my service (Score 1) 574

I changed my subscription from 3 dvds + streaming to streaming only. Not to teach Netflix a lesson or because I was angry with them, but because the price increase made me really look at whether I wanted to continue paying that kind of price. If there'd been no price increase I probably wouldn't have given it any real thought and continued at my current subscription level indefinitely. Significant price percentage increases have the negative effect of making people actually stop to think about how much they're paying and for what, and most subscription services will end up the worse for that scrutiny.
