Not true, menial labor serves to convince people they don't want to do menial labor and strive for something better. It's up to the individual to find their motivation. Would tablet permissions as a reward work for good behavior? Sure, I don't however think every inmate should get one at the cost to taxpayers.

Agree with a lot of the comments here, I skip flying most of the time. Drove 21 hours each way last vacation to avoid it. As consumers we simply need to demand to know seat configuration before we pay for a flight. I'm a big guy - 6'3" and around 350 lbs. I flew for work a couple of years ago, so coach and they had me in a middle seat. Can't image how unhappy those guys on either side of me were, but it's not my plane so not really my problem.

Comment I'm surprised... (Score 1) 78

I just recently (August - September) completed a way too in depth review of T-Mobile and Sprint for my personal use. I'm a long time AT&T customer, and a happy one, but I was switching to a BYOD phone and thought I might find equal service for a lower price elsewhere. Of the three (ATT, TMOB and Sprint) Sprint's coverage didn't appear to come close, international plans were definitely not as good, and the pricing was no better. TMOB was very close to ATT, and I especially liked VoLTE and WiFi calling on TMOB, something ATT won't do on a BYOD. However in the end I stuck with ATT since the pricing was comparable and TMOB was never able to resolve a couple of sim issues, in fact they couldn't even respond to the inquiry.

Comment Problematic in an enterprise environment... (Score 0) 105

In many enterprise environments the developer tools are disabled via group policy. This change means many users who may want to view this information now will no longer be able to. Considering how enterprise security teams are always trying to educate users on safety this simple check now cannot be done.
