From what I understand, after June 12th, anyone without a digital converter/tuner that receives their television "over the air" will receive nothing but static.
Why isn't the FCC requiring all over the air broadcasters to display a static informational screen that basically says (similar to not having flash installed on your browser) "If you are seeing this message, you need to...."
It seems to me this would be the best way to get the point across, rather than people turning on their TVs, getting static, and thinking their tv is broken or not knowing where to go for the information....
Another problem with survey accuracy is the design of the surveys. I've taken several surveys online (in exchange for payment or entries in sweepstakes) and have been very frustrated when questions are asked but don't have enough viable answers available (or a way to explain your answer).
There doesn't seem to be enough middle ground between some of the answers, and sometimes there isn't a viable answer avialable, or the question doesn't apply to me at all, based on previous answers I've given or my current situation.
For a bit there, I got confused with his liberal use of the word "novel", and thought that maybe he wrote a book that included (as part of the plot or setting) these inventions, and now wants to be paid for companies who went out and made them into products.
Alas, it's much worse than that....
You would think with a $450,000,000 payout, at least a few lawyers around the country would be willing to represent him, but of course, he would have to be able to explain the lawsuit in english, which it doesn't appear he is able to do.
I haven't seen much reported about where the parents were during all of this, and where they thought their kids were.
Her mother says she was talking bad about them online, or something to that effect. I don't see where that's an excuse for conspiring to brutally assault someone, and then post a video of it online for posterity. Does she really think that's okay?
Nuh uh! They have all kinds of cool stuff in the cockpit and I'm sure if they have radar and stuff up there and GPS, then they could easily have a radio/cell phone triangulator signal that was accurate to a map of the seating chart. Can so! heh heh
Except that I AM a bit tech savvy, and just helped my mother install a wireless network in her home. I opened up the Belkin box, inserted the CD as per the instructions, and walked through all the bits of setting up the router to the internet and her computer.
Funnily enough, it never mentioned WEP or WPA encryption, or prompted me to setup a password for the router.
