You obviously don't travel for business.

I went to the UK, the company I was working for had a company phone with every number I needed pre-programmed, ready to hand to me after I got off the plane and out of the airport once inside the UK. Before going back to the USA, hand them the phone back before entering the airport.

"There is also A2DP, which still uses lossy compression, but at a much higher bitrate, stereo, and at 48KHz sampling - good quality audio, as the compression noise is below what human hearing can detect."

I've got a pair of custom-built wireless+wired headphones. It uses Polaroid PBT598 hardware. It connects using A2DP. It also has an aux-in input jack.

You can EASILY tell the difference between the same audio track over A2DP vs the aux cable jack. A2DP adds way more of ye olde MP3 'underwater' effect.

Submission + - Wasserman Schultz won't Speak at Dem Convention After Wikileaks Revelations (cnn.com)

HughPickens.com writes: CNN reports that the head of the Democratic National Committee will not speak at the party's convention next week, a decision reached by party officials Saturday after emails surfaced that raised questions about the committee's impartiality during the Democratic primary. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose stewardship of the DNC has been under fire through most of the presidential primary process, will not have a major speaking role in an effort "to keep the peace" in the party, a Democrat familiar with the decision said. The revelation comes following the release of nearly 20,000 emails. One email appears to show DNC staffers asking how they can reference Bernie Sanders' faith to weaken him in the eyes of Southern voters. Another seems to depict an attorney advising the committee on how to defend Hillary Clinton against an accusation by the Sanders campaign of not living up to a joint fundraising agreement.

Have some in-site ads that can't be blocked - e.g. coming directly from the root level, and just pepper the loaded pages of those not logged in with them.

If they block the root domain, they block themselves from the site. If they don't want to see as many ads, they need to get an account and stay logged in.

The trick is finding the perfect balance, required effort vs incentive to not act a certain way.
