Truth is stranger than fiction
Isn't the FCC, FTC and SEC entrusted with protecting the populace from criminals? If so then they have failed badly.

But wait... the Flat Earth dot org folks have all sorts of reasons why the earth really is flat - according to their "research". In addition one well known accounting software provider when informed that their maths did not sum correctly advised that they would correct the problem in a future update. Apparently they didn't feel tax authorities would find the delay any issue? So how can the Horizon software be attacked? /s
We have criminal hackers that are refusing to attend a conference on criminal hacking because they oppose the politics of an elected official? If the Congressional rep. opposed criminal hacking I could understand but when did criminal hackers grow a conscious about diversity, abortion, etc. while supporting their criminal behavior as hackers?
Even without Intel's ongoing 10Nm crisis AMD has changed the CPU landscape for the better for Biz and consumers. With AMD's latest CPUs shipping on 7-7-19 being another significant performance improvement with as much as 50% lower power consumption enterprise can't afford to ignore these benefits especially when AMD's enterprise products typically cost 60% of Intel's. That's a lot of dollars at the end of the day. With all of the technical and administrative issues at Intel, AMD is in a position to significantly increase their market share in all segments over the next decade.
With HP selling Epyc CPU powered systems because Intel was unable to compete or supply 10Nm CPUs probably didn't help improve the supply of Intel CPUs. HP's poor customer support and another round of defective laptop batteries is also likely to hurt their sales as they just don't seem to be able to understand the consumer market. Our company stopped buying HP laser printers due to their lack of reliability. The lights might be on at HP but it's difficult to tell if anyone is actually at home.
Constantly making public statements in violation of law is eventually going to cost Musk his CEO position at Tesla and potentially any company for a minimum of 5-10 years. Clearly he doesn't believe that the rules apply to him. The SEC will likely need to make a more lasting impression with a $100 million fine as the last $20 million fine didn't seem to get Musk's attention.
A background check would not have shown or deterred him from 3D printing a gun. Thank the morons who posted plans online how to 3D print guns for unnecessary deaths. Any gangbanger, terrorists or evil person can get a Russian or Ukraine produced weapon in the U.S. and elsewhere with little trouble. If the U.S. and other countries want to reduce gun violence they need to remove the crazy people from society because you certainly can't remove the endless supply of illegal guns from foreign countries nor stop crazy people from 3D printing guns or gang members from making zip guns.

It's inconceivable that governments worldwide would allow the dangerous practice of allowing prototype AVs to be operated on public roadways when no minimum safety, security, engineering or maintenance standards have been established for these vehicles. Insurance companies are even refusing to provide coverage because the judicial and legislative communities have not established who will die or be injured in an unavoidable accident and who will pay when said accidents occur.
Siren chasers trying to cash in on the technical ignorance of a jury.
AMD did not hide anything. Their architecture was always clearly stated. It's just technically challenged people looking to cash in. All one has to ask is if an AMD dual core CPU can process two threads at the same time. End of discussion. You don't need an individual FPU per core to have a multiple core CPU. Intel 286/386 CPUs did not have any FPUs. If you wanted one you had to buy another chip called a math co-processor. So were Intel I286 / I386 CPUs not actual CPUs? Obviously they were CPUs.
It's incomprehensible that government agencies world wide who's responsibility it is to protect the public from defective products and financial scams to allow Microsoft to continue costing Windows users irrefutable harm and financial losses from defective OSs and updates. Microsoft will continue to distribute defective goods until such time that they are fined billions of dollars for each damaging update. There is no reason for consumers to be damaged other than Microsoft's negligence and apathy.
Drones will become a serious security issue to all major airports worldwide if an effective deterrent system is not soon developed. In addition lasers pointed at pilots is also becoming a serious hazard that must be addressed. It will only take one plane crash to emphasize why these significant safety issues need to be resolved now.
