New coast-to-coast Super Highway under development.
The DOT, in partnership with the "Big 3" automakers is proud to announce the innauguration of a new coast-to-coast superhighway to be constructed to replace the existing Interstate system.
One of the key features of the new highway are the vehicle-specific lanes which use NFC technology to detect the manufacturer and model of the car you are driving. For those who drive Corvettes (the "first" American sports car), your speed will be allowed to hit 125; for those with the new Ford GT-40, you will be allowed to hit 150. All foreign cars will be limited to 65 at all times as they are not "American" suppliers.
Manufacturers who contribute the most to our new Super Highway will be allowed to set the maximum speeds of their vehicles, and those who contribute to our Senators along the route will also be able to "throttle down" vehicles from their competitors.
what's the black market value for fake Internet Drivers Licenses? That is what gov's have been after for a while, so let's just get in on the ground (64th) floor of this opportunity.
I bet a site could be built where you enter any name and address, it generates the Internet Drivers License number (use a real program just to piss 'em off) with addresses of local PD and politicians... prints it off on a high-quality ID printer and mails it...

I'll put my name and info on my website when you put yours on the senate website where you spew your press release videos - considering the "speaking fees" you collect for them, I consider that "commercial" work...
A) Google: 1) Websites exist to provide information for people that want it. 2) Websites can opt-out of being indexed 3) Google indexes those sites which have not opted-out 4) Google provides a service for people to search that index to find services/information they are looking for. 5) People sometimes search for "bad things" like unauthorized content
B) Telcos 1) People and Businesses get telephones so friends/customers can contact them. 2) They can opt-out of being listed (indexed) [ unlisted number] 3) Telco & Yellow Pages index all the phone numbers/names which have not opted-out 4) Telco & YP provide a search service so customers can find what they are looking for (used to be a free book delivered to your house) 5) People sometimes searched for "Bad Things" (like escort services)
... many of those very early games were "give-aways" with the high-end graphic cards of the day - I think I got my castle wolfenstein with a turtle beach graphics card...the gaming culture itself was kickstarted not from store sales - but from these early freebies.
