#3 http://www.wired.com/science/discoveries/news/2007/01/72400
1996: The Israeli secret service finds that a cell phone can be used for things other than chatting with friends. It also makes a pretty nifty little bomb for disposing of an enemy, which is what happens to Yahya Ayyash on Jan. 5, 1996 when he tries talking on a booby-trapped phone apparently provided by Israel's Shabak.
Ayyash might have appreciated the irony: He was the chief bomb-maker for Hamas, and was linked to the killings of more than 70 Israelis, many of them civilians.

#4 Wow - now high-end android phones are a right?

I take it this includes free unlimited data service as well. I work my ass off and I don't even have that.

#5 Saves a lot of valuable time CF. Enables one to call ahead to the Kroger or Publics meat section and order those favorite steak cuts. Think of the job search time wasted, waiting on special cuts....fumbling with real cash at the check-out, then the long slug to the handicapped parking slot.

#8 Rights are restrictions on the power of the state.

A transfer of wealth can never be a right.

#9 ..yes, its something that's earned, like sticking a gun in someone's gut and demanding their wallet, or voting for politicians who'll do it for you.
