Due to the Supreme Court case mentioned in the article, that would require an act of Congress. I think there are a few too many corporate-backed politicians on both sides of the aisle for that to happen anytime soon.
I just use Moon+ Reader on an Android device (phone or tablet depending on where I am). It does support vertical scroll. It only paginates at chapter breaks since, in the .ebook format, those are normally file breaks where the reader has to load a new part of the book anyway.
If they don't give you a written statement, assume they don't offer service there and don't buy the property. For bonus points, inform the seller (or their realtor) of the reason why you're not buying and maybe they'll be able to brow-beat a written statement out of the ISP.
The problem with that is that even drugs in the public domain can have their pricing abused. Daraprim, the drug that went from $13.50 to $750 per dose is outside of patent protection. The company that made the change simply bought all the producers of the drug. Since it's not used by a large number of patients, there's no incentive for another producer to come in, do all the testing necessary to get a generic version to market and actually produce it. So, you end up with a monopoly even without government assistance.
Right now, this article comment is the top response to the search term you listed (and your own "buggers might have a 'Right to be Forgotten'" line is in the summary). For some reason I find that wonderfully hilarious ^_^
Can't you get pre-paid credit cards at stores without showing ID? I know I never had to show ID to pick one up and I know that I have seen people under 18 using them for spending money acquired from part-time jobs. I really don't think credit card age checks are that effective anymore.
I think the bigger issue is the fact that there should be competition in the wireless space. There are four major wireless providers in the US and many smaller MVNO's that operate on their networks. So, why don't we see any actual competition? This makes me both angry and confused.
Unfortunately, I also can't think of a good way to fix this problem. Is there anything that the FCC (or the FTC if necessary) could reasonably do to push competition along?
If they actually have a case for defamation, then they should be able to go after the sites where the defamatory statements are actually stored rather than a search engine that simply lists things on the Internet.
Actually, starting with version 1.0f, it is backwards compatible. In order to get the new strengthened encryption you have to move to new volumes but, I switched over to VeraCrypt a few months ago and was able to seamlessly change my headers to the new format without having to store everything in the clear, create new volumes, and move it back across.
In the district where I went to school the robocall system was opt-in, kind of. Every year you had to have your parents fill out and sign an emergency form with an address, phone number, and emergency contact information. That form noted that the primary contact (parent/guardian) information could be used for automatic calls but, if a student didn't turn in the form they'd be suspended until they did. So, the system was effectively opt-in or home school your kid.
I don't know if it's changed since my youngest sibling graduated high school but, somehow I doubt it.
To continue, the voters wouldn't be a problem if the voting system did its job.
The way it is now, if we actually had more than two viable political parties we could end up with something like the most recent UK elections where a group with less than 40% of the vote, got 51% of the seats in government and therefore 100% of the power. Not good....
Only about 35% of the voters did vote for his party. Using FPTP as a voting method with more than two political parties begs to have this kind of result. It's just that this time has had the worst outcome thus far.
My state (Michigan) is currently moving to pass a law requiring charges to be pressed in order to keep any seized property. It won't protect against a federal seizure and, from what I've been able to discover, many police departments in the state already have this as standard procedure but, it'll be nice to actually see this as the law.
Don't forget that the law requires the FCC to have no more than three members of the same party as the sitting President out of the total of five. Since the guy being replaced by O'Rielly was a Republican and his replacement had to get through Senate confirmation without being blocked by filibustering Republicans (IIRC this was before the Republicans acquired a majority in the Senate), he had to pick someone 'suitably' conservative.
