There is one time to think different, and another time to listen. They thought different on the Pro already and it was not quite the ticket!
DIY and tinkering != professional.
Where I work it's a regular occurrence to open up computers to repair/upgrade them. Replace failed/failing drives, power supplies, RAM, etc. But then again, we use PCs which make that a much easier, more feasible proposition than it would if we were using sealed up Macs. If you are an independent or small-scale shop (or use computers that are not upgrade/repair friendly) it probably doesn't make sense to have staff with those skills. But to say it doesn't happen anywhere in enterprise is false.

Unless and until your device nearly loses the signal, it's not going to try to find a better node to connect to. A mesh network on the other hand is manged by the network devices themselves to ensure things like that don't happen and that your devices are always connected to the best nodes.

I find Apple's position that they'd be fine with the law if it didn't include phones interesting. Says a lot of how Apple views their Mac business vs the iPhone business. But then are we talking about all phones? Just smart phones? Where do you draw the line?

Sure there are ways around that like setting up a computer based DVR, buy an OTA TiVo, etc. But the only way it's "free" is if you are willing/able to make sure you are sitting on the sofa at home when the show starts and be restricted to real-time viewing only (no pausing, rewind, commercial skipping, etc). Otherwise there is going to be some cost involved and/or it is going to be far less convenient.
I can easily vpn to my Mac from my iPad anywhere I have network access and watch any episode I want without the monthly subscription.

My wife was sent to the hospital and our VW totaled when she was rear ended by a distracted driver. No ticket was issued.
There is no way an iPhone can determine whether someone is a driver or a passenger or a rider on a bus.
