I had just been reviewing my subscriptions and decided to keep LoveFilm, for many of the reasons in the article - lots of obscure stuff that's hard to buy, not available to stream, with subtitle options, director commentaries etc. So I'm sorry they've decided to close it.

€130 per vehicle per year is not what I'd call an "absolutely tiny" amount; it's quite a useful sum. I assumed you were talking about something on the order of €5 per year or less until I read the article.

That's terrible about the DVD service. I have two streaming services and I've been thinking about subscribing to a DVD delivery one too because streaming usually does not have what I want on it. Our library has DVDs, but not a very good selection.

What everyone else said about lovefilm: I'd rather have a streaming service, but last time I checked, the obvious ones cost more for a rental and had a smaller selection. Hopefully that doesn't persist!

With respect to cabling everybody ... I can't say much, since we're building parts for them, but in 2019 there will be a cheap, low-cost option available for everyone between the Artic and Antarctic circles. Not helpful to the Inuit and more northerly first Nations, but otherwise rural people will be quite happy.

Price point is $30 US per month per subscriber for unlimited high-speed usage. Latency is moderate, with a 250 - 450 km line-of-sight path to the first transceiver. Transceiver hardware is NOT tested or rated using the usual means for its environment, but is just COTS, using a massively redundant array of cheap, tiny devices instead of fewer reliable (and expensive) devices. The trick is being able to fit an enormous number of tiny devices into a single delivery truck.

And not vapourware, since our factory is starting to churn out modules for the tranceviers.

Ignoring the issue of allowing someone in hospice care to vape, the issue of not being able to move people to the commode or use a bed pan is a solved one. "Cholera beds" are designed to support patients comfortably while allowing them to relieve themselves into a sub-bed container.

Failing that, there are absorbent pads that you can slide underneath a person; we used them with my father. I am shocked that a hospice would not already have them in stock.

I personally would find either method more dignified than the current method they are using.
