“Most of the other companies aren’t really gonna give a damn if we go after them. They’re not concerned for their reputation. [With Apple] there’s a little more leverage,” [says] US Uncut spokesperson Joanne Gifford.
Putting aside the politics of the contents, is there any worth in this kind of tactic or is it simple naivete?"
Illinois's wiretapping law is a "two-party consent" law. Illinois makes it a crime to use an "eavesdropping device" to overhear or record a phone call or conversation without the consent of all parties to the conversation. The law defines an "eavesdropping device" as "any device capable of being used to hear or record oral conversation or intercept, retain, or transcribe electronic communication whether such conversation or electronic communication is conducted in person, by telephone, or by any other means." 720 Ill. Comp. Stat. 5/14-1, -2. If you are operating in Illinois, you should always get the consent of all parties before recording an in-person conversation or telephone call. In addition to subjecting you to criminal prosecution, violating the Illinois wiretapping statute can expose you to a civil lawsuit for damages by an injured party. While you generally are permitted to photograph or record video of people without permission in most public places, it is illegal in Illinois to "videotape, photograph, or film" people without their consent in "a restroom, tanning bed, or tanning salon, locker room, changing room or hotel bedroom." 720 Ill. Comp. Stat. 5/26-4(a) (scroll down).
The results are so haphazard, it feels like their parody of google is what actually drives Bing.
I don't know how this late in the game a search engine can be so bad.
It's all in the name
That is fine, but you missed the point of my original post.
That point was: I do not agree with your stand point, but you were not being flamebait.
You only focused on the fact I said you were being dumb IMO (in my opinion).
Are you done? Because I am going to go over there now, you can continue arguing with your self if you want.
I got to say that you need to be modded up out of flamebait. not because you are right, but because you are not flamebait. you may be dumb IMO but not flamebait.
please remember people, there is no mod for "you don't agree with me", and not everybody who disagrees with you is a troll or flamebait.
"rapidly" is not exactly a precise amount. What if they mean 10 dB every 10 meters? Also, this device is made for crowd control. Sooner or later it will get used at close range, either by accident or because some idiot tought it was a good idea.
you chopped off the important part again.
the rest of the statement gave details, "The sound level will drop off rapidly according to the inverse square law as you get farther away"
A simple google search will show you that the inverse square law says
Acoustics The inverse-square law is used in acoustics in measuring the sound intensity at a given distance from the source. Example In acoustics, the sound pressure of a spherical wavefront radiating from a point source decreases by 50% as the distance r is doubled, or measured in dB it decreases by 6.02 dB.
meaning that every time the distance is doubled the power is halved.
so precise amount was given, you just ignored it or did not know what it was.
Time to take stock. Go home with some office supplies.
