You're right there's no need. They are means of communication however, and having many brings redundancy (for plain and simple inter family communication for example). It's up to any user how they fill the channels, but it would also be a bit backwards to not use modern tools at hand, to complement the traditional. Use cases are many, and one model doesn't fit for all.
Average man can also have lower pay rate, or go against the policies of the company.
Be a slave or not. That's the black and white take of the issue. Because of the lack of freedom the choices are few. No wonder the realisation comes out violently.
The different looking people are handy substitutes for one's suffering, coming from first being fucked up by everybody and everything else.
There's not much courage in that but cowardice. The empty facades which call themselves human beings exploit that to the final drop.
The problem is that all the features are packed in the phone as complete package.
All that is needed is a piece of glass with screen and networking capabilities. Then everything would be streamed in and out from a central server, which would hold the CPU, memory and other features.
Consumer would then buy different 'models' of virtual hardware, and the power reqs would be minimized.
How? Perhaps the parent poster has government discount price in.. Busted!
Are there unique innovations anyway, except for the delight of lawyers? Everything is built on something. The need to state uniqueness and innovation is kind of selfish.
Progress is about sharing, so that the flowers can bloom. Everything else is more or less about constraining innovation.
Yeah, almost never happens
Soon the clothes will be colorless and featureless. Unless you pay to have the colors, branding and features of the class you feel like belonging to. Total transparency for the lowest.
Nothing to worry about. People living at the time of reversal will have multiple poles and northern lights will be visible around the world. So a bit of confusion and a great light show.

True. But they did accomplish to make everyone believe that Trump won the election so everything is possible I'd say. The hologram projection of the new world is state of the art alien technology. The secretive alien forms behind Hillary were defeated. Earth is a field of battle which we don't know almost anything about.
Something like that, perhaps?
NSA is an effective tool for the American economy and policy making. I don't see any reason why a businessman like Trump would reign it.
I suppose it'll be rather left to its own devices, also because of its apparent complexity to the administration. If something the intelligence efforts will be strengthened, as the administration composition so far suggests.
Trump's tactic of pre-emptively revealing pretty much everything has left the security apparatus somewhat toothless, too.
More likely the price was boosted because of the speculation that it might. Bitcoin is rather unhinged from the fundamentals. The central mass of Bitcoin holders/traders typically just expect the price to skyrocket at any occasion.
There's nothing wrong with that, of course.. it's just funny how there are so many Reasons why Bitcoin behaves like it does, of which some are based fantastical fractal analysis etc.
The others then make their profits by playing with that sentiment or reasoning.
It's still rather unfinished and low scale platform, after all. Really long term holders (rationing the investments) would probably also do fine, if the political and technological risks don't materialize...
I propose that the ships should be financial organizations rather than military ones. For example, to fund the operations and perhaps to turn profitable even the smart missiles could pick and deliver goods to nearby customers before striking the targets.
A little router
Such wow, closed never was
So much interest
Yes, and if one doesn't like any of the options there's always the option to cast an empty ballot. That's a protest vote at least. Imagine the effect of millions of empty ballots.
