I love it when you guys get threats like this. I just love seeing the threats get so easily dismissed. By far my favorites articles of yours are of you responding to threats.
Although I did spend about a minute looking, and couldn't find a legal contact link either. There's a general contact page, but no reference to a Legal department (unless the the 'Sky is Rising' is that). Although I'm not a lawyer, so I don't care enough to keep looking.
1) A phone is not a computer, duh. Everyone knows it's a mobile device. A computer is bigger. 2) It wasn't fraud or abuse, it was 'conducting an investigation' 3) This is the government. Even if the above isn't true, the law still doesn't apply to them. 4) ??? 5) Profit?
Hatch refused, saying that getting home was “not my problem,” and warned Mr. Zullo that if he attempted to retrieve those items from the car he would be arrested.
Getting arrested, making your one phone call, and being released on bond (assuming they allowed that) would be faster (and probably safer, assuming the cops didn't beat you), than being stranded on the roadside in winter.
BofA is horrible. My wife went to cash a check given to her, and they wanted to charge us a fee to cash it because we aren't members of their retched institution even though the check was drawn from them.
There's a deeply unsavory element to casting police as assault rifle-toting warriors, one that in the wake of Ferguson - and its inevitable successors - video game companies would do well to remember and be a little more careful with.
Yes, because they are. I completely agree. I don't know much about this particular game, however I think we need a game that exemplifies their concerns.
We should have a FPS game where you play a regular, average citizen. Perhaps ones that is a passerby to a peaceful protest happening at a local university. As you pass, you see armored police tanks approaching, with kevlar covered officers exiting armed with M16s and grenades. Someone pulls out a cell phone to take a photo, and bullets start flying. You duck as you hear explosions and gunfire rip through the formally peaceful protest. People are running in fear while being gunned down in the back.
Afterwards the police, having done their civic duty for the day, hop back in their tanks and roll away from the newly formed red pond. Off to the next disturbance...
It's obvious Tektronix is just lazy. They don't want to go through the hassle of ordering different sized ROM chips for the different model features (so someone can't flash better firmware on to a cheaper one). Ideally with different electrical characteristics, so you can't just swap it out.
