Re: Not locked down to the app store
Only if you're buying new. You can quite happily resell/gift your physical console media to someone else, for whatever price you like and they will be able to use it on their console.

Businesses can accept whatever form of payment they like in exchange for goods/services. Legal tender only means that a debt cannot be said to be unpaid if an item classed as legal tender was offered for the value of the debt.
In the US, I believe it is the same but there are some states that have passed laws to make cashless stores illegal (Connecticut, Massachussets and New Jersey I think).
You are indeed correct. Workload Rate Limit is the upper tolerance range for throughput before it will affect risk of failure for the drive. 550TB appears to be the threshold for most "heavy" use designated drives across the manufacturers.
Basically the manufacturers state that if the overall workload is kept below this threshold then the reliability of the drive will be as advertised. Exceeding the WRL rating reduces the reliability conferred.
Not sure I follow what you mean by "non-web-access email"
Most email providers give you the settings to interact with their mail service through whichever email client you like over a number of different protocols (POP, SMTP, etc). The majority also allow you to log in via a web client, but it's up to you really. You can use the android mail client to connect to hotmail or android outlook to connect to gmail. Can even add multiple email providers to the same client if you like.
So, according to Popular Mechanics, April edition 1964, they overcame the problem of reactive torque by designing a tool for the Gemini missions where the motor and motor casing rotated freely and were not locked to the tools framework it seems.
On the debris question, the answer is surprisingly low-tech and is basically "shaving foam around the area".
I'd thought it may be something like an assumed auto-correct where if the entered text doesn't make sense in it's current configuration, it does some distance-matching and checks highly scoring alternatives. But the response for entering dog only 6 times is "dog dog dog - reader email"...
"Its most recent Companies House filing shows the company as making a pre-tax loss of £28.5m last year, but the firm also paid its 362 UK staff a total of £35.4m in share bonuses.
The share bonuses amount to £96,000 on average per UK Facebook employee."
From the BBC so no guarantees on reliability but seems at odds with this stories £96,000 overall.
