In Western culture, capital punishment is the answer to the actions performed by the individual which are equally if not more distasteful. Save the prison space for those who can be redeemed for their misdeeds.

Yes and wikipedia lists those "Western culture countries" for you (Capital punishment)

China, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, United States, Yemen, Sudan, Vietnam, Syria, Japan, Egypt, Libya, Bangladesh, Thailand, Singapore, Botswana, Malaysia, North Korea

So "Don't judge and you won't be judged". Maybe even for some amputation may help to redeem their misdeeds much faster than imprisonment. Where is the red line you draw? Where the media or church tels you?

Is it so expensive to have both in one device? I defiantly prefer WiFi but 3G is useful in cases when you are outdoors and need some information badly. Like when the movie starts or where my favorite band is playing tonight. I use my android phone all the time during Friday nights to decide where to go next or to show funny YouTube clip I found. Still I don't know if I would bring tablet with me in such ocations if I would have one. On other hand, I've used phone as car gps a lot of times and then tabled would more handful. For those rare cases when I need WiFi to download large files and I don't have such luxury I wrote small app for that. That simply remembers list of files to download and when WiFi is available it downloads them. It's in the market but I won't give the link here due to ethical reasons.

Completely agree with you. And that applies to other media too. Why should I wait for movie to arrive to my country a month or in worst cases 6 months after premiere? For some content it wont arrive at all. For example, The Big Bang Theory has season 4 already and there is no channel available that would even start showing season 1. And I technically live in Europe not some "mambo jambo" island in the middle of ocean.
