Man faces prison after allegedly trying to collect deposit for cans and bottles found in other states!

In a memorable episode of Seinfeld, two characters hatch a plot: instead of returning bottles in New York for a 5-cent refund, round up a load of containers and run them to Michigan, where the return is double, at 10 cents each.
In reality, the ploy – returning bottles purchased outside of Michigan to capitalize on the refund – is illegal under the state’s bottle deposit law. And a Michigan resident is finding out just how steep the penalties could be.
Brian Everidge, who is accused of attempting to “return” more than 10,000 cans and bottles from other states, faces up to five years in prison for one felony count of beverage return of non-refundable bottles.

slashing prices to boost sales. Asustek is currently having advantages
in the price competition because of its deep pockets.
In
addition, motherboard players have also been increasing their sales
bonuses to their distributors and channel retail partners in China to
encourage them to place orders. However, the risk of creating bad debts
has been rising and a few cases have already occurred recently.

Putin Says All Encryption Must Be Backdoored In Two Weeks | Techdirt

After signing controversial anti-terrorist legislation earlier today,
President Putin ordered the Federal Security Service (the FSB, the
post-Soviet successor to the KGB) to produce encryption keys to decrypt
all data on the Internet. According to the executive order, the FSB has
two weeks to do it. Responsibility for carrying out Putin's instructions
falls on Alexander Bortnikov, the head of the FSB.

What's the Best Router for Ending Rental Fees?

Equipment Return Instructions

Because of the potential issues with returns, you need to do more than just drop the device off at the service center — record that the instrument is in working order first and, second, make sure to get a receipt for the return. Finally, make sure that the ISP removes rental fees from your bill. Too many customers report problems — and unfair charges — for you to take this lightly.
