Darn Americans and their nasty tests
Ann one remember the high altitude nuclear explosion tests?
These injected a large quantity of fission debris into the ionosphere!!
What were they thinking...?
I see no reason why you can't buy a machine and then modify it to better suit your purposes.
I can buy a car, change the engine, get it inspected and then go on my merry way.
I can legally modify my lawnmower, fridge, dishwasher, bicycle.....so what's so special about a computer?
Oh, it's all about $$$$ and powerful political lobbying...
Popular culture problem
TV and Movies almost NEVER relate to IT stories or concepts in ANY realistic way.
Perhaps if they did, more people would get a clue.
Even TV news reports on the "latest virus" get the details either wrong OR don't explain how to avoid the problem in the first place. They just love to sensationalize it. "We're all gunna die"
I know TV and Movies don't like New Media, but you'd think they would be interested in educating people?
Oh well, rinse and repeat...
