reminds me of a poster

There is never enough time to do it right the first time, but there is always enough time to do it over.

Seems so horribly true for software.

Also why do they always try to add extra features (and bloat). Why not get a 'good enough' set just right.

saturation coverage

There are large areas of semi-desert that are wanted for the SKA radio telescope array project where we DO NOT WANT drones saturating our receivers.

It sounds similar to the Afristar concept where the majority of the intended audience could not afford the receivers and did not particularly want the product. Those who can afford it picked up satellite TV, like DSTV (I see their dishes even on some shacks).

Re: "Self-insured"

Some things are unique and cannot be replaced - hence no insurance

Others are an almost certain catastrophe coming - hence no one will insure them

One of the (many, many) things I like about my wife is that she never uses it.

Who the hell ever gave people (well women actually) that the opposite sex would like them to smell of some random collection of plant and animal extracts??

Design

Good luck in trying to enforce any of that 'designer' stuff in the rest of the world. I suggest that what will happen is that overseas factories will copy it perhaps minor tweaks.

I think that the whole IP law needs a major overhaul and agreements on international levels; at the moment corporations go jurisdiction shopping
