There can be no question that what Microsoft means by "enabling" used game sales, means controlling it completely to their benefit. They are only taking more time to tweak the exact terms and work on their spin.
But you won't simply be able to swap with friends or other normal things back when you actually owned games and they worked on any console.
The have killed that and hopefully they pay a price in lower sales.
" the central issue, that the mileage given decreased a lot faster than the driver expected it to..."
That isn't what resulted in the Flatbed. He would have learned that lesson on his close call driving to Milford. He arrived with 0 Miles left, so he just made it.
Then when Tesla advised him to fully charge here, he didn't, instead, charging to only 70% capacity.
It was on the next leg of the journey after first short charging car (against Tesla advice) and then parked it overnight in freezing temps unplugged (the car itself warns you to plug it in when cold, every time you put it in park).
So it was short charging, parking overnight, unplugged in freezing temps, that resulted in the flatbed.
This was self inflicted against the advice of Tesla support and the car itself.
Elon did a questionable attack, but the tester is still at fault.
It may not be common knowledge, but Intel with Medfield, has pretty much caught up with ARM for Perf/watt.
Avoid the Win-ARM tablets and get one with Medfield.
The Medfield tablets are wide open. Run all your old desktop software, let you install anything you want. Run all the new Metro stuff too.
The ARM tablets are a locked down subset. Pretty much Metro only, you can only install approved apps from the app store, you can't even install a browser plugin like Flash on these tablets.
Win8 on ARM is essentially Microsofts walled garden apple clone.
Win8 on Medfield will work with that same apps store and run those walled garden metro apps, but it isn't limited to them. You can install run anyhting, get full browser plugins, use any browser (full desktop FF/Chrome).
Bell cut the packages from 60GB down to 25GB and are willing to sell that missing cap to you for $5. This is only a deal if you are severely confused, or if you are shilling for Bell. Exceed that cap and your price/GB is:
