Supreme Court asks Trump administration for thoughts on App Store pricing lawsuitseneca72 said:I thought the US had separation of powers such that Law and Executive were independent of each other. If so why is the Supreme Court asking the opinion of the President as to whether it should hear a case? Surely it either should or shouldn't based on a matter of law?
Viewed from this side of the pond it looks a little odd.

New mockup photos purport to show final design of Apple's 'iPhone 8'volcan said:Looks like it was probably not made in China. Most likely an English speaking country other than the US because the water bottle label in the background is in English but shows the contents to be Net 350ml. In the US they usually list both ounces and milliliters or sometimes just ounces.

Cellebrite iPhone hacking tools selling on eBay for as little as $100MplsP said:lkrupp said:This sounds like these tools don’t really work very well. Why would a $6000 piece of equipment being going for $1000 or lower on eBay? You would think these tools would command a king’s ransom on the open market and that hackers would be trying to outbid each other. The whole thing sounds fishy. But more than that it completely squashes the government’s claim that any backdoor or master key manufacturers would provide could be kept secure.

'Save the Internet' bill seeks to reinstate net neutrality regulationsGeorgeBMac said:I have always been in favor of net neutrality -- enforced by government. The idea of "government control of the internet is as ridiculous as government control of any utility. The regulations are there to insure a fair shake for consumers and effective management of national infrastructure, nothing more, nothing less. But, that was all "back in the day" of internet being delivered over coax, FiOS, and LTE.
With the advent of 5G that could all change. Not only does 5G have the capacity to replace most or all of today's conventional delivery methods, but 5G can be software targeted to deliver pinpoint accuracy for critical functions like remote surgery and self-driving or remotely driven vehicles -- and a ton more.
I think this whole thing needs to be thought through as to how it will be used, how it fits into and supports critical U.S. infrastructure, and who says which resources get which resources? For instance: Do you trust Verizon to provide and decide how much you pay for remote surgery over their network? What will stop them from price gouging based on willingness to pay -- the same as Big Pharma does for life saving critical medications? Or say, your self driving car travels from the area covered by your Verizon network into AT&T's -- can AT&T then charge you a "roaming fee"?
