Beggars belief that emergency calling - which has been with us now how long - 100 years? had no backup in place (few posts above).
Which traditional system of communications worked? Genghiz Khan had Pony Express type messengers to transit the whole of Eurasia. The English system of hilltop beacons worked pretty well. Otherwise we’re back to jungle drums.
Welcome to the future and the bigger problem is after the expletives we shrug and go “oh well”.
(As to which mind your own business).
Went on Friday with an appointment (but not for a phone). LONG queue. **** that. Went back yesterday. Large sales area designated for pickup crammed with hundreds of people half of whom were temporary sales staff dishing out the goodies.
Left with the Apple carrier bag then hid it, to avoid looking like all the walking dead with rictus grins flaunting the bag in public as if it were a Louis Vuitton.
1. China did not change from a nation of peasants to the World’s factory overnight. Anyone who visited China before the decades of rampant growth saw a massive industrial infrastructure in the main cities. Creaking in places, sure, but all that despite the exigencies of civil war and “the liberation”.

The Risk Factors section in a prospectus used to be about 2 pages. Now it is 20 and getting longer every year. It is the most incredibly boring part of the document whose drafting is therefore usually left to a junior or trainee lawyer who starts with the most recent version and is not able to think of anything beyond "what else can we throw in". The intent is NOT informative but to prevent anyone - especially the lawyers - from being sued by saying in effect "If you buy these shares you are mad".
Your para. 2, fourth sentence. Quite so. No way the Taiwan ruling party** will allow TSMC to share its crown jewels outside the territory. Hence automotive-specific only.
** Or - cough, cough - China for that matter, That is at least until they can match the expertise, which is the moving target dragging by the nose everything that China is doing.
Not long ago I bolted together some old bits and some new bits and installed XP. Had to remember where I put the driver CD's for the USB bluetooth dongle and the USB wi-fi dongle. But it all worked. Until I fired up Google Chrome.
Apart from that, the trouble is I sat there looking at the familiar wallpaper wondering what to do next.
Then found that some old things from the era for which I needed XP to run would run perfectly OK in an XP VM on 7,
Eventually binned it. Sigh. I guess like a lot of people here I have too many computers.
