difference is that Sony never really promoted 'other os' as a specific selling point. Motorola used it directly in their marketing.
Here's the thing, if a company says something to entice a purchase, they are likely to be sued and give refunds to everyone that purchased based on those promises.
no, your talking criminal contempt, this is civil contempt and the punishment would most likely be commutation of the settlement and liability for court costs. This is against a corporation, not individuals, there's no specific person that is liable and it wasn't a criminal offence.
$3/4 Million is a big chunk out of managements bonuses I think...
Contempt of court has nothing to do with the FCC. The FCC will still come after the business for the second fine for which they are unlikely to accept any settlement. Also, you can't jail a corporation, only it's officers which is VERY hard to do, just look at the banking fiasco and how few people were jailed over it. This will likely only ever come down to fines and more fines if they repeat until the business loses solvency.
true, but that doesn't release them from FCC liability either. And the chances of a settlement are near zero for a second offense. I've seen second FCC fines in another wireless industry, they are no joke.
the first fine is a slap on the wrist, but if they continue the next fine will be substantially larger, order of magnitude larger. The FCC might only slap on the wrist for 1st offense, but they get real serious when people don't follow their direct orders.
I haven't seen one bent to the point of damage, but I've held the regular iPhone 6 and I can flex it with one hand. It VASTLY more flexible than my nexus5.
Look at the design genius, the light doesn't hit the collector directly from the sun. Obviously there is a roof too.
And are we talking about a full BBQ, or just a singe? I'm not too concerned that 28,000 birds a year get a suntan!
I suspect that if fully cooked meals are dropping out of the sky at an alarming rate, there would be an issue with coyotes and other scavengers hanging out at the Sizzler. Maybe the the solution is to just add some ADA parking and a Coke Freestyle machine.
ok, so 28,000 per year, lets break that down.
with about 8 hours per day of operational time, it's 10 each hour. That's the high number. 1 every 2 minutes is 30 an hour, so you've already exaggerated 3x the exaggeration in the post.
80 birds a day? who is cleaning up the bodies? show me 1 picture of 80 dead birds at one of these facilities.
on the surface, 77 seems an unlikely high number.... I'd like to see the evidence of this claim. 77 birds fly through a narrow killzone in the middle of the desert each day? not the forest, the desert. show me the evidence, can't be that hard to put up a camera or two.
~3 birds each day seems like a lot of KFC for a power plant....
anyway, seems like the environmental impact is quite less than mining of coal etc etc, and more easily solved....audible chirps, clicks, etc to scare the birds away? Or maybe a little metal eagle or hawk statue on the roof..
absolutely agreed. Though I don't have direct evidence to support this statement, I would guess that a neuron fires at a similar enough speed as a transistor. Consciousness is a very complex computation from billions of neurons *written in assembly* essentially. If/when we make an AI, it's likely to be compiled code running on a chip with less transistors than we have neurons, 100 Billion neurons vs 1.4Billion transistors in an i7 for instance.
That said, this is assuming that we limit consciousness to what humans perceive, the computer may have a somewhat different version of it. I suspect that we will try to build a human type consciousness into the machine though.
If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature. If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.
