Depends how DHS would see it though.
Generally things come into play at the land, otherwise the entire coastal part is wrong since international waters start about 12 miles out (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Territorial_waters)
as a result everything should only be affected 88 miles inland instead of the 100 they are showing, if this is the case.
that doesn't even get into the fact that many devices are actually left on unintentionally in bags or pockets.
Plus they make you "turn off" ereaders, but you just have to put cell phones and devices in flight mode. I'm pretty sure smartphones and most other devices put off way more EMI than an ereader which only really uses power to change pages.
what jeff said mostly applies but yet there is still no way to watch Amazon video on none Kindle Fire's.
You can get music, books, audiobooks on pretty much any device. However, if you want to watch digital video on a handheld device it currently only exists on the Fire and has for the last year. If this is truly how they feel they need to release apps for other handheld devices.
It can't just be licensing holding them back I can watch amazon on several other devices (Sony TV, Sony Bluray Player, Xbox 360) but no iDevices or Androids that aren't put out by amazon.
Not true, that's the cost to duplicate it. It costs amazon x.xx per copy to the publisher plus "about 0" to themselves for storage/bandwidth. So as long as they are charging x.xx + 0/y they are making marginal cost
This isn't happening in the US. the US is trying to get New Zealand to do whatever it is the US wants. Hence government refers to the US government arguing against Megaupload being able to do anything in New Zealand court.
What public interest is served in arresting someone who tweeted public factual information?
If they want to maybe go after whoever originally started it, I can understand that. Perhaps that is what they are planning, but it sounds more like they want to try getting anyone they can identify who tweeted this information.
Arresting people who repeated information accomplishes nothing and the information will still be public.
