> Based on their measurements, the key value in Bell's inequality, which is expected to be less than two for hidden variable behavior, is 2.42. Therefore, hidden variables can be rejected with high statistical confidence.
S = 2.42 ± 0.20 is the minimum information to make this conclusion. never forget the error margins.

If you visited electronicfrontierfoundation [dot] org recently, you were caught up in operation Pawn Storm.
No, electronicfrontierfoundation.org is not the EFF site you're looking for.

It took 3 weeks to spot the fake, I think this is the problem (not that surprising halas)

The s6 was free on contract here in the UK, just like the s5, so I'm expecting these to be the same.

"BMW's sector-defining 3 Series has turned 40, so the start of the story is in 1975—except it isn’t. You have to go back much further: past the early '70s when work began on the first 3 Series, and even back beyond the 1966 predecessor that set the pattern for compact BMWs. You have to reverse all the way back to 1959."
Focusing on driving dynamics and technology has kept BMW at the top for six generations.

+Manny Brum True, but maybe that's a reference to Lexmark's previous douchebaggery of invoking the DMCA for bypassing the DRM chip on their inkjet cartridges to refill them. Lexmark ultimately lost that case. Now, I guess they're attempting to use patent law as the cudgel this time.

Except they're not a transportation company. They provide, at best, dispatch services.
