Populism isn't so much an ideology as it is an approach or doctrine. "Populism" is the strategy of appealing to general populace, and as such the principles that are considered populist change according to the mood of the populace. An ideology is a way of thinking about the world, and isn't dependent on the mood of the populace.
"Nav and sat radio are integrated into that box now."
Which is generally not a big deal. The built-in nav systems tend to be awful, so you're better off using your smartphone or third party nav system anyway. Sat radio might be an issue (even though you can do that with a third party device as well), but most people don't care about sat radio.

"I'm assuming (and I could be wrong) that Netflix provides this service free to ISPs."
They do, yes.
"Wouldn't that give Netflix a huge advantage over other content providers?"
Only if those other providers aren't also using CDNs (and they all are, as far as I know). CDNs have been around for a very long time now, and are widely used by all sorts of media delivery services. The difference with Netflix is that they run their own CDN rather than using a commercial third-party one.
"If Netflix coordinates with ISPs to ensure that Netflix traffic is more effectively delivered, how does that not violate the tenet of net neutrality which states that all traffic should be treated equally?"
Because Netflix is not asking for their packets to be given a priority over other packets of the same type. A CDN isn't a "fast lane". It's moving a server so it's closer to where the destination will be, so that packets don't have to travel as far over the internet.
"I'm still not sold that the site itself, like Netflix, that consumes a significant portion of overall backbone bandwidth shouldn't have to pay something extra"
Netflix, like all internet services, pays for the bandwidth they use. The more bandwidth they are using, the more they pay. What is the argument that they should pay a surcharge? If the rates being charged for bandwidth aren't enough to cover infrastructure expenses, then the problem isn't Netflix, it's that the backbone providers aren't charging enough across the board to keep the business viable.
Re: Re: Re: Consent is the ultimate Fourth Amendment waiver
It wouldn't eliminate the problem, but it would make it harder to pull off. Or, more correctly, would make it easier to challenge in court. Right now, it's just the cop's word that consent was given.
More importantly, though, is that it would make is explicit to the person signing that that are giving consent (whether or not that consent was coerced). That would fix the problem that I was talking about: that you can give consent for a search without knowing that you gave consent for a search.
Your suggestion has merit, but it's no panacea. In effect, the image (or song, or whatever) is no different than any other password except that it's a LOT longer -- and longer passwords are better passwords.
But it still suffers many of the other weaknesses of passwords, of course, since it's really just a password. These weaknesses include the ability to be sniffed or copied, etc.
It also has a usability problem in that you have to have the image/song/whatever file with you to log in.
I think a better solution is to use authentication certs, although that shares the problem of having to supply a file to log in.
"the argument could be made (although I don't know how true it would be) that it's more environmentally conscious to continue using an old car as resources aren't continually being used to keep building new ones."
Yes, I wonder about this as well. Older cars are much, much worse on the environment than newer ones in operation, but when taking into account manufacturing impact, which way does the balance tip?
It was the Prius that got me thinking about that years ago, because batteries and chips are both very bad for the environment to manufacture (and dispose of), and I wondered if the overall environmental harm is actually lower with the Prius vs traditional cars. Studies since have shown that generally speaking, no, it's not lower. It just changes the type and location of the environmental impact.
