If 2 factor includes a device, then there needs to be some way to authenticate if that device is stolen when you are in a remote location.
Another horrible version of 2 factor authentication is when the device is a smart phone that you are using to log onto the service in question.
Does it come with a real menu bar with file, edit and other proper menus? Or do I have to play "hunt the secret glyph" to unlock a menu?
Yeah, it does. You can even configure it to always show it. Alt+v opens the view menu. Then select Toolbars (e.g. by pressing t) and select Menu Bar.
If you are giving money how to you know the money will be used for the correct purpose?
You don't. But when you are entering into a business arrangement with someone, promising to spend money received on a mutually agreed purpose, but have no intention on spending said money on the agreed purpose and spend the money on something else, you are committing a crime. In my opinion it is good that witnesses to such villainy come forward. Sadly, many of those con artists manage to avoid getting caught.
Paper ballot with optical scanner seems a good compromise: you can count electronically, but if there's a problem, you have a paper trail.
How do you know that there is a problem, if you haven't made sure that the paper ballots have been under observation from when voters start casting their votes until the votes have been counted? If days or weeks have passed, the ballots could have been tampered with.
There is a very easy solution to that particular problem: The power switch where you plugged in your TV. Switch it off, and annoying LED goes bye-bye.
My main gripes with LEDs on electronics is when they start blinking, e.g. when the DVD player is reading from the disc. Bloody distracting when trying to watch a movie.
Even cyanogen provides a wiki page to tell you how to load Google Apps on your Cyanogenmod device, because "many users find them beneficial to take full advantage of the Android ecosystem."
Many Android app developers only upload their apps to Google Play. It may be possible to find the apps on other app markets, but you have no idea if it is the real deal or crawling with malware.

This is not how I want to use my computer, logging in to every single site every single time I visit despite being on a trusted device. We have plugins and cookies for a reason, because they make the Internet a more useful tool.
Because you don't train someone, who has been manufacturing doorknobs for the last 20 years, to now be an electrical engineer.
Last time I checked, Spain had a 50% youth unemployment. These aren't people who have been "manufacturing doorknobs for the last 20 years", but young minds, still flexible and able to learn new skills.
Given how much I paid for it, I expect it to "just work". When I press the "Later" button, I expect that the update gets postponed to some later time. I do not expect that it tries to start the OS update - I don't have sausage fingers. I also expect that a pulled update does not keep prompting me to update my device, and that I can find official word and updates on the home page of the manufacturer. Alas, I have to rely on 3rd party articles, referencing twitter updates from some guy.
In W7, I can right click a particular update and select hide. Up until recently that would effectively hide the update forever. The W10 update is just crap from a user perspective, no argument there.
Liar. I sit here typing this on my iPad 2, running iOS 7. It is eligible for iOS 9.2.3 (or whatever the most recent rev. Is); bit I don't CHOOSE to upgrade. About once every few weeks, I see a REMINDER that the new version of iOS is ready for download. I DISMISS the Dialog by clicking "Not Now" or whatever, and THAT IS THE END OF THAT.
I have an iPad Pro 9.7 running iOS 9.3.1, and *every* day I get a reminder for upgrading to iOS 9.3.2, even though it has been pulled for that particular model due to a nasty bricking bug. When I press select the option to postpone the installation, I get sent to a login screen with a very well hidden "press here to cancel update" link. You really ought to do your research before throwing around words like liar and asshole.
