I have a TCL Roku TV and a Roku soundbar for my Sony. I haven't seen any of that shit yet and I better not. I'd be taking that straight to Consumer Affairs and my elected reps. That's going to cost them huge sales.
As the article explains, it seems to be happening not on Roku devices but on smart TVs "...running the Roku TV platform...". So, it is the TV manufacturers (seemingly mainly Samsung) who are responsible, not Roku.

Can science answer all the questions? No. But to say science can't supply truths is completely wrong. Religion provides some reasonable ideas, "... thou shalt not kill.." but truths are few and far between.

So, has anyone read enough on this to have a grip on if this is a case of the airlines dragging their feet, or if it is just a technology problem needing a solution?

Regrettably, a very large majority of the world's population would not agree with you on that.

Microsoft negotiated a purchase price of $95/share. They didn’t do it expecting the share price to magically jump to $95.
That’s not how those things work.
Well, it might have if the deal time line was shorter. Assuming regulators don't step in and no one changes their minds, it will eventually rise to just under $95 just prior to the deal.

The only real change Bobby Kotick is interested in is trying to make sure he can keep on keeping on and silencing anyone opposed to his wishes.

The neighborhood system is a cool, haven't seen that idea before. The sonic drilling is also cool. But yeah, even with the smaller drilling system in this video, some locations just won't be able to do it.

For whole house heat pump systems in sub-zero areas you can use geothermal exchange instead of atmosphere exchange. Although installation of a geothermal system in an existing home might be difficult.

I agree with you at some level RogueSix, it boggles the mind. But then this is a country where Trump did well with suburban women voters despite all the accusations against him and stupid things he has said about women. It is as if the corporate world got stuck in the 1940s and no one noticed until the last decade. It would seem the "old boy network" reaches well past the executive level.

Also... since nothing can be shorter than a Planck length, that was pretty much a given.
This is kind of what I was thinking. Either this is some of the "silly science talk" I hate, or it requires a careful explanation. I mean it seems like this is the equivalent of the "argument" that you can never get anywhere because before you do, you have to go half the distance...

My buddy needed the first two letters of Shire his first two choices were Zaire and quire.
Proper nouns are allowed? *ugh* Did not know that.

Edit: Apparently it is their currency also, so not necessarily a proper noun...

My bests are in 3.
I lost today's, for the second time. I had 3 greens in the second turn, but still didn't get it. The last two had a LOT of potential combinations.
Same, my best is 3. Ouch that had to hurt, three greens on the second guess and you didn't get there? My guesses (in secret text to avoid spoilers): taser, round, crock, broil, proof, proxy I definitely got a bit lucky, there were other valid words I had not eliminated. Third guess was weak sauce -- should have thought harder about it.
