Are open Wi-Fi network bods liable for users' copyright badness?

So all that's required is that you set a password ?

Great idea... doesn't stop you from telling everyone the password though...

(Or naming your SSID to reflect that password...)

And since there seems to be no requirement to log everything I guess people can remain anonymous...

Complicated ?

No... it's actually quite simple :

If you chose at&t and want to switch to another provider you have to pay apple for the privilege of changing the sim.

So basically it's just another way for apple to make an extra buck and for at&t to lock users into their network by making it harder to leave...

Re-light my diode: Trio of boffins scoop physics Nobel for BLUE LEDs

malle-herbert
Silver badge

Re: What IS the physics then?

The real physics is getting an atom to emit a blue photon...

Since creating a blue photon needs more energy than a red or a green one, it's a bit hard to convince an atom to emit one because atoms are a bit lazy and like to return to the lowest energy state possible as soon as they get the chance.

The trick basically lies in storing enough energy in one atom and then transferring it to another so that the second atom gets 'pumped up' to a high enough energy state to emit blue light...

Don't be fooled...

Apple and Google aren't doing this because of privacy concerns...

They're doing this because it costs them money to have to find and hand over data about their users to law enforcement officers all the time...
