Re: Why the sudden bezelphobia?
It's the same daftness as making them thinner at the expense of battery life. I'll take the whole phone being 2mm thicker and lasting an extra 24 hours, please.

Isn't that because they're not using AI, though? They're just using code written by wetware like ourselves and you're seeing the issues. If that website's back end had been written by an hybrid AI/coder then it might at least offer you hotel stays for next month, even though it just sold you one. :)
A beam of light is mad up of a bunch of photons travelling along in the same direction, one after another. Each photon has a magnetic field and an electric field, aligned perpendicularly. If you imagine the photon travelling across your screen from left to right, you might see the magnetic field from the side, so it's a wave drawn on your screen, but if you did then you'd be looking at the electric field from the edge, so it'd be a wave going in and out of your screen. If you then imagine looking at the screen from the right hand side, the photon would be travelling towards you with the magnetic field looking like a vertical line and the electric field looking like a horizontal line. This is the cross that you can see in the polarised light image.
When light's emitted from a source like a star or a hot light bulb, the beams of light/the photons are aligned at random, so if you look at the light source all the photons will look like corsses rotated to random angles.
When you polarise the light, but shining it through a fine grid, polarising sunglasses or a weird quantum phenomenom this forces all the crosses to orient to the same rotation, so you get the polarised light image where all the crosses are like the one you'd see from looking at the side of your monitor.
Interestingly, as you can polarise light to different angles by forcing it through a grid that's rotated to differetn angles, you can convey information in the angle of polarisation. Your light beam could be continuous, pulsed, varying in colour and so on, but you can ignore all of that and look at the polarisation angle to read the information. It's not even effected by blue or red shift. Handy!
Everyone would have to create new, corporate facing accounts under their real names. These would be the ones where all the posts were designed to make them look like careful drivers. Stuff like, "Gosh, I've had two cans of coke today. I thik I'd better catch the bus hme rather than drive with all that caffeine in my blood."
Facebook can claim they have 100% more users.
Meanwhile, everyone carries on using the site as normal under pseudonyms, posting stuff like, "shit the bed! im still so fucked from last night but gotto get to work. wears me car keys LOL!!!"
What we would really benefit from is a bit of a warning for the ones that hit with a 10kt to 10Mt explosion. Those are the ones that could make a country think it's been sneakily nuked and launch a retaliatory nuclear strike against it's enemies, causing a response from them and eventually fucking us all.
With a couple of days warning it'd be easier to avoid misunderstandings.
That's not true. What if you have a large volume of digital photographs and you want to tag them according to what items appear in the images? You could train up a neural net to do that task and have it producing useful results without it being easy to express how it's correctly tagged one as a fox rather than as a dog, for example.
You're missing the atmosphere, mate.
Fighter jets travel fatser than the terminal velocity of a dude strapped into a chair, so when he's ejected he'll spend the first seconds slowing down.
Also, bodies of different masses fall with the same acceleration _in a vacuum_, but usually fall with different accelerations in an atmosphere, due to drag.
I think in this case they weren't looking to use evidence on the phone to convict people so much as to identify other connected suspects. Presumably in order to prevent further crime. If they could determine who else was involved then they could probably use other evidence to get convictions, through searching those other suspect's homes etc.
Just set the password to 'password' and don't tell it to anyone. If it gradually becomes a thing that open hotspots use the word 'password' as the password then nobdoy will have to do any identity checks and nobody will be prevented from using previously open hotspots.
The ECJ will eventually have to make it a law that you can't set your wifi network's password to 'password', at which point everyone can move across to 'password1' and carry on.
