Hay HBO, you do know you can get around this problem, and any future problems that WILL come up, by not requiring an HBO subscription. Just charge a little more for the untethered service and boom, Comcast doesn't have you by the balls (or other delicate body parts) and you get a boost in paying customers.
That's one of the reasons I block it. Verizon and Google still don't get along (I'm starting to think they're doing the node thing like they did with Netflix). Some times I can't get to any Google website. Youtube, G+, even the search page just stop responding all at once and for a few hours. Everything else (even other streaming video sites) works perfectly.
I'm going to assume two possibilities. One, there's more to this video than LG is putting out (if that's the case, ignore the rest of this comment). Two, the simple act of stress testing is what sparked the suit.
Over the course of the several year life span of the washer more damage is going to be done to that door than one guy should be able to do in one or two little pushes.
I think it was a reasonable stress test, but it still would be vandalizing private property. If you stress tested your friend's car and broke it, you would be responsible for the damages.
So it may have been a reasonable lawsuit, but Samsung may have done more damage to their reputation. LG probably shouldn't have even bothered trying for defamation and just made this video. Hell, they could probably make an advertising campaign out of it. "Yes we got sued and yes we lost, but we proved their stuff is not going to survive the years."
Well, he's kinda right. Title II will inspire North Korea and other dictatorship countries to censor harder.
A free and open Internet will put more and more information out there. More information might inspire citizens of not so free countries to desire some of that freedom. Citizens who want freedom are the bane of totalitarians, thus they will censor.
But something that pisses off totalitarians and inspires citizens of totalitarian governments is a good thing, isn't it?
Square Enix is doing it with Chrono Trigger and a bunch of versions of Final Fantasy.
As much as people feared the fracturing of the Android market, that's becoming less and less of a problem. Running an emulator would be even easier as it doesn't need to access special hardware. The biggest problem now is system specs, just like PC gaming.
Let's be realistic here. They don't want to spy on the public, we're not interesting enough to keep their attention. They're doing it because they're too lazy to do real detective work and for the appearance of doing something.
The problem that comes with this (and the real reason to stop it) is confirmation bias. Humans are far too damn good at finding patterns where none exist. I guaranty 100% that given enough information I can find enough coincidences to get anyone on any government watch list.
Yes, but they don't limit the no-fly zones to 15 miles around DC. I'm fairly sure it's a violation to fly over the White House. I'm fairly sure it's not a violation to fly 15 miles away from the White House.
Plus, it's not DJI's place to set these limitations. It's the FAA's place.
