1) Most recalled devices never burned up
2) Its not an easy fix if you cant remove the battery yourself
3) See answer 1
4) If the problem is a third party removable battery the manufacturer is not responsible.
5) How much cost $5-$10???? and how come the less expensive phones all have removable batteries if the issue is cost????

Comment Systematic ineptitude within the DNC (Score 1) 769

Never blame on malice that can be better explained by stupidity and incomptetence DWS was to leave after this election cycle anyway. Obamas people wanted her out after 2014, Clintons people wanted her out too but wanted to give her a soft landing until these emails came out. It wasnt a matter of whether she was capable of running the DNC impatially, she was not capable of running the DNC at all. All the emails show is how badly run the DNC was under her tenure she was incomptetent, unprofessional and petty.

While the militia did include all free males of military age. The militia was subordinate to civilian authority whether the town council, the sheriff or the governor.
You did not have militia members running off on their own stockpiling guns. A miliita member was expected to drill as a member of the local or state militia, wear a proper uniform and maintain their weapons properly. A militia refusing to recognize civilian authority was considered an insurrection. The "Minutemen" was actually the elite select of the Massachusetts militia.

Any computer made in the last 7 years with 2 gb of memory can run windows 10 at a reasonable speed, basically any computer that can run windows 7 well can run windows 10 well. Even gamers are realizing all they really need to replace for most games is the video card. So computers are getting replaced now when they old computer just dies.

What will start computer sales again? Probably when Oculus-like VR drops from $600 to say $200, maybe some breakthrough in 3d projection. Home robots? Who knows, something that demands more computing power.

Comment Private Enterprise vs The State (Score 1) 247

Private companies like facebook or twitter are not required to pay for your microphone that's not what freedom of speech is about. If the government bans you from speaking that is bad. If Facebook pulls your page thats their editorial discretion(also part of the first amendment) then you can move over to reddit or myspace or whatever.
