As long as we're pointing out fields where artificial scarcity protects the veterans... how bout taking a swipe at medicine? Because of the way doctors are trained in the USA, it literally takes an act of congress to be able to increase the size of training programs (to be able to graduate more doctors in a year).
So everyone knows there is a doctor shortage, but we wouldn't want to go too crazy in correcting that problem because then there'd actually be competition for the people who've already fought their way though the gate.
Good point. I'll be damned if I'm going to pay 1/2 the unit cost for a map update. Open source maps are free to update - so in five years (when they are equal on paper) OSM will be superior in actuality. 90% of TomTom users will refuse to pay for updated software - so they will be the less safe drivers (following TomTom's logic).
If you're upset by the FBI's actions (or the DEA's for that matter) you should make sure you're on the list of potential jurors in your area.
Jurors can decide whatever they want without regard to the written law. If you think something is wrong (entrapment, drug enforcement, etc) do your best to get on a jury and don't agree with the government's charges.
Make sure everyone you know is registered and understands their rights as a juror.
I'm sure that my average monthly usage is nowhere near 2GB/month, but I was too lazy to verify that. That's the main reason I went with Sprint's unlimited data. I won't use it, but I don't have to think about it if I go on a streaming spree.
