What kinds of deals with the devil have been made or is everyone operating blissfully unaware of what's going one. Any cell tower technicians able to comment? Anyone in the cell industry able to clarify how someone can run an unlicensed third party device over their bands? If they don't care, then maybe people need to start using their spectrum for other purposes as well. 2.4GHz is too crowded as it is.
I'm there for my kids all the time. We do stuff together. We talk. We figure out right from wrong and it doesn't stop this from happening. Why, because a 12 yo lacks the maturity of a full grown adult.
Case in point, my A/B student (so not some dummy or delinquent). Placed on suspension and probation for terroristic threats.
Ignored by a kid that used to be a friend, said inflammatory things about having people ready to jump him. The twist, the kid didn't care. The kid didn't report it, it was another school official who overheard everything.
In this case, language designed to elicit a response was purposely chosen. Does a kid have the maturity level to realize the consequences of doing so? Um, no, not at 12 and not having had this experience.
Have you ever used language to piss someone off on purpose? How would you keep the emotions of an 12 year old in check while they're at school? How was the school district zero tolerance policy beneficial in preventing this from happening? What would you have done as a parent to make sure your kid never said something stupid? Do you even have a kid? If you don't have the answers then STFU!
Actually, yes, 10 years ago the tablet computer did exist. It wasn't a capacitive touch screen available to everyone+dog, but I know I coveted the touch devices that were hitting the computing market more than 10 years ago. There was one in particular that was very promising and ran linux but never got past prototype stages.
Even smartphones were around back in the day. The term smartphone is 14 years old and I remember co-workers with handsprings that could make and receive phone calls over 10 years ago.
I'm not arguing that technology is screaming forward at an unprecedented pace, but it's not nearly as fast as everyone wants us to think. Apple, Samsung and Nokia didn't just spring out of the woodwork 5 years ago with fantastic new phones. They built on the work done by others, many of whom couldn't innovate fast enough to even exist today.
Flying cars on the other hand just seem to have stagnated for the past 40+ years.
Really? Didn't seem like it when I was getting back off my honeymoon. I wasn't searched, but the the cop at the airport really wanted "snoopy" to investigate me further.
I will say that I am sure that I stood out from the crowd. Hair bleached from 2 years of Mexico sun, face and arms equally tanned. I was also dressed head to toe in traditional white cotton Jarocho clothing. I probably was extra haggard from a severe second degree sunburn all across my back and shoulders.
If the handler was trained to avoid a false positive, why was he so sure that the dog needed to have a go at me? He was dragging the dog by the leash to have a go at my suitcase and carry on. The pooch was clearly disinterested and I am 100% certain I wasn't carrying anything that would have triggered a reaction.
No amount of careful planning will ever replace dumb luck.
