i've been delayed because of weather, engine troubles, etc and i'm still alive and happy.
Many (most?) can accept that things happen but, there are limits. Yet, most can't accept a lack of information and being outright lied to. Air line in general have a very poor public perception of telling the truth about why delays are occurring. Weather and "Acts of God" are one thing, we can check the weather, many can sort out things like "Oh, there's a thunderstorm in Ohio, why is that affecting my flight in Colorado... Oh, my plane in trying to leave Ohio..."
With air lines implementing various cost cutting measure (which rarely seem to improve service or cut out prices) that have meant fewer, fuller flights and less convenience for travelers the system seems wholly unable to deal with interruptions above a certain threshold. In light of all this, I fully understand someone's ire at a lack of transparency from any air line.
Southwest, and others, should (as in be required to) provide details on what went wrong.
the only thing public pressure does is cause the company to spend more money in redundant hardware which mostly sits unused and raises prices
It's likely that the cost of redundant hardware pales in comparison to what the device failure cost them..
decent PR move, lol
You mean inciting espionage(1) and virtual treason (1), then yeah great move.
P.S. Yes, I saw the lolz.
(1) - Is there such a thing?!?
What?!? Hey, guess neither of a new the US was an international leader in technology and encryption.
50% being used on somebody's lap.
And 10% of those are holding them between their thighs while driving away from a McDonald's drive through.
So that's around 850 that could be in close contact with somebody's groin region Let's assume that 50% of those laptops are owned by males, (or just something that has a penis)

'perform certain actions, motions or gestures, such as to smile, blink, or tilt his or her head.'
As if Amazon isn't bad enough, now it's just downright creepy.'
Creepy isn't quite the word that comes to mind, more like pervy.
Just what "certain actions, motions or gestures" we talkin' 'bout here? Just wanna know if I'm gonna have to clean up afterward...
Because sadly being innocent is not a defense and while you may not automatically lose due to your lack of legal representation, you also won't necessarily win because your innocent. Failure to respond, fully and properly to a lawsuit can lead to a costly loss. As can lack of procedural knowledge, past case law, etc.
This is one of the great inequities in U.S. law, a complainant with sufficient resources can prevail due to the defendants lack of resources. A unending series or motions, court filings, etc. can be financially devastating.
This article sparked the memory of wondering why we had to pay more for unleaded gas... Apparently it was expensive to remove the naturally occurring lead from the refined gasoline.
Oh, wait . . .
A budget is just a method of worrying before you spend money, as well as afterward.
