Last I checked
sweat is not just water and how does this help the seat keep my hands from going numb from bad back pressure points?

to make 32GB work with a set top box for streaming for my elderly parents. Spent hours just updating. Gave up and it now runs Mint which streams Netflix just fine without confusing them or popping up update notices. I feel sorry for the technically challenged who get these entry level machines which are not fit for purpose.
It's like trying to throw a spear at a fish. You will most probably miss. With an iphone diffraction will cause your eyes to miss measure the screen. In all likelihood the real screen is better than a meter on a side. As to the pixel count, few people can count accurately past 1000 so any complaints should be dismissed.
"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."(Ayn Rand) ISPs have brute force so we need government to level the playing field. I want municipal broadband.
How right you are. The economic benefits to private schools, real estate sales people and nanny services used by telcom execs should not be underestimated. When large corporations have more money, their executives support these industries. We should all hope the cash spigot is left wide open through lack of regulation so executive bonuses can trickle down.
How am I supposed to manage a household without my toothbrush telling the wold I am low on paste or my refrigerator telling amazon the milk is sour or Alexa telling the Goog that no one is home. I want my light bulb to unlock the car when I go out and lock the house. The toaster should switch on the burner in the morning so I don't have to wait to cook eggs as long as there are some in the refrigerator. Burdensome patching only makes life harder.
If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to patch!
I encountered the ever friendly Alexa at an acquaintance's place. Other than asking for "Why did the chicken cross the road?" answers, Its friendliness made me want to through it in the ocean. Overly chatty people are bad enough but it is at least possible to share a beer at the end of the day and tune them out.
