The aussie govt has absolutely nothing to do wt this, instead its the idiocy of an Australian supplier purchasing from a US company having to somehow conform to the US ideals of weirdness thinking ONLY they can create electronic components that could be ever used in military grade technologies.
Interestingly I can absolutely guarantee that the parts bought would of NOT been manufactured int he USA and most likely shipped DIRECTLY from SE Asia.
Also Element 14 has subsequently allowed the sale (even though they had the stock already and had passed through Australian custom controls)due to them doing more due diligence. Interestingly under Aust Consumer law (and defamation) Mr Jones would of had a very good case against them if they had refused the sale no matter what US law they were stupidly trying to honour.
Furthermore David Jones is a very common name, even more so it is the full name of a MAJOR department store created in 1838 and listed on the Australian Stock Exchange similar to Macey's and with the same ubiquitous presence and brand knowledge in Australia. If you don't know of the name in Australia you have basically been living in a cave.
your comment reeks of Pedantic claptrap & Bullshit!
and I gather now that VC stands for Virtually Clueless, interestingly it seems anyone else with even a laypersons legal knowledge of legal knowledge about copyright, how Google operates in regards to notices also understand this too..
Also lawyer? and you have typed slander, libel AND defamation in the same sentence? *facepalm*
Not to mention the actual physical reality that unless you have a greater than 100inch screen and are sitting less than 4 foot away (which makes it virtually unwatchable) the actual HUMAN EYEBALL cannot tell the freakin difference between 4K or 1080p.
4K is Only beneficial on specific monitors for the use in such things as scientific, medical, or engineering work (such as x-rays) and NOT for moving images at 60fps
The ONLY benefit that 4K allows is that 3D can now be rendered at full 1080P for both eyes . Otherwise it is marketing hype that is not based around the actual functionality or viewing ability of any human EVER!
Google isn't the first manufacturer of Augmented reality glasses and certainly wont be the last so that 1500 will certainly drop down in price and I'd expect when it hits fully Telstra, Optus and Vodafone will all have it for less than 1500.
Also you do realise that Google is not required on your computer (unless you have a chromebook) you have the ability to NOT use any Google products and can even.. Shock horror use alternatives.
If they are that fearful to be going into unknown situations then their is an underlying psychological problem that needs to be sorted out..
All military around the world get through this fear (which doesn't mean its not present just controlled) by training, training, and more TRAINING.
If by then there is still a fear problem, then the individual has a disposition that shows they should NOT be doing that kind of work nor be placed in that situations (this would result in a breach of Duty of Care by their superiors)
Also the BUDDY SYSTEM is used by military, LEO's, community health and welfare officers, even Tax officials the world over. So for her to be on her own and state she was fearful of the 'unknown' means she is also at fault for not insisting on another officer at the time of attendance.
Also a bit of due diligence on 'unknown' situations goes a long long way to protect all sides. who'd a think it hey!
Mistakes are ONLY understandable if there was no reasonable way in which they were not foreseeable in each situation. This is a foreseeable and based on your response known fearful instance and therefore this mistake should NEVER be made since it should be trained out of them.
To state otherwise or to call it a 'mistake' is only adding more apathy to the innate problem.
That would of been the wise choice before you started in the beginning.
Then this article would never needed to be written, you would still retain some semblance of civility and intelligence.
Sadly as your legal counsel would no doubt understand you are in a bit of a bind at present since you have been the perpetrator of your own destruction now.
As for your bumptious legal threats, I would if I was you take the time to ask your lawyers about entities like Charles Carreon, Joseph Rakofsky, Prenda Law, and other butthurt individuals like yourself who tried and failed with their stupidity.
Oh and "The Streisand Effect" would be something to investigate too..
Though I probably know a fair bit more about the law, diversity, equality, and natural rights than you claim to. And calling your fellow citizens 'the dumb masses' makes you even more of an idiot than anything you have said previously.
