But in that case the failure should be detected within the product warranty period so a full refund should be obtainable. In most cases, the burden of keeping warehouse products up to date would fall to the suppliers rather than the end user. There would still be a problem if the end user for some reason kept the product off-line for a year and missed the rollover.
In the US the problem is more in the handling than the cooking. Just washing a chicken breast under a tap can contaminate surrounding surfaces to the extent that it is generally safer to cook the chicken without washing. I assume that washing the chicken at the processing plant is meant to reduce this kind of cross contamination. Curious as to whether the same issue with washing applies to UK raised chicken.
If you have only a 16 passenger capacity and multiple stops then you are going to be decelerating and accelerating the vehicle just to transfer one or two passengers per stop. The energy cost alone would be hard to justify. And with a single tube per direction you could not have express vehicles bypassing stops.
It would seem to me that, so far as hyperloop is possible, it would be more practical as a single point-to-point system intended to replace smaller regional airports.
The infected person has to volunteer their phone information for tracing to start so the location data could be supplemented by personal knowledge. In your situation your neighbours would likely remember if they had contact with you.
Those in range at the grocery store could take whatever precautions they deem reasonable. Just knowing I was in the grocery store at the same time as confirmed infection would be enough for me to consider a test or to self isolate.
The app is not a magic bullet, but it does reduce the effort and uncertainty inherent in contact tracing.

By design the AWS data is useless unless you also have access to the user's personal phone. So the US authorities would have to have your phone and be able to access its data.
Of course the app could be faulty or intentionally compromised in some way to give away your location but that is true of every app you install. I suspect there are already a few apps on your phone that do this.
The problem with the slippery slope argument is that all laws can be abused that way so no law becomes acceptable. You could say that all speed limit laws are unacceptable because governments could set them to zero to restrict movement.
A good precaution is to mandate that the app be open source. Another would be to require that the app self destruct periodically unless actively reauthorized. That way when the crisis has passed the app won't linger on phones waiting to be abused.
If found one rock among thousands that looked remarkable like a tooled arrow head that would still be evidence of human presence. The other thousands of random rocks are irrelevant.
The question is how do you explain the measured qualities of the 3 sample they did find?
Netflix likely uses equipment that contains Broadcom intellectual property, but that should already have been bought and paid for. If not, sue the equipment manufacturers not Netflix.
