Musical Killswitch[edit]

All of those who are listed as killswitch users are actually using the Toggle Switch of the guitar except for buckethead who's using a killswitch that it's purpose is to silence the sound briefly, when the toggle switch's purpose is to shut or turn the electricity of the guitar.

Internet[edit]

Anybody wants to help me out create an 'Internet' section for this article? --> http://www.crunchgear.com/2010/06/23/relax-president-obama-will-not-flip-an-internet-kill-switch/

Thanks! P@ddington (talk) 00:52, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

IMO it should be split off into its' own article. I've added a split tag. -- Gordon Ecker (talk) 08:26, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
Also, there should be more information on China's internet kill switch, and any other current or historical internet kill switches, I've added the globalize tag. -- Gordon Ecker (talk) 08:35, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Oh absolutely. I knew it would eventually become its own article, but I kind of wanted to start it here. I think now might be the right time to split. Do you think the new article should be include the software bit, or should it be all about the Internet Kill switch? P@ddington (talk) 17:20, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Btw Gordon, I have a random question... about skipping lines on Wikipedia. Let's say I want to skip a line between the tags you added and the text of the article (for appearance purposes.) How would I go about doing that? Seems like just skipping a line in the code doesnt quite do it... Can you help me out? Thanks! P@ddington (talk) 17:52, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Yes definitely. CMTucker (talk) 23:07, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Hardware[edit]

Too low info. 2.94.94.228 (talk) 19:09, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Deus Ex (and other media)[edit]

features a very famous killswitch. why is it not in this article?!?!? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.183.126.95 (talk) 15:37, 28 April 2011 (UTC) Not only. Generally, this article lacks section "KillSwitch in popular culture", mentioning such importnant facts, like it is often depicted in works of science-fiction as device used to control and emergency kill people(!). This happens very often (like in mentioned DeusEx). Second very popular depiction is showing it as security measure for controlling AI (like depicted in book "Neuromancer" <they mentioned EMP bomb for disabling Artficial Intelligences gone rogue>, XFiles episode mentioned in article also uses phrase in this meaning.)77.253.23.158 (talk) 17:38, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Elevators[edit]

Is this an American reference? I've only ever seen a stop button in hollywood films, never in an actual lift 94.247.241.90 (talk) 20:49, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Update Needed[edit]

The article appears to be behind the times insofar as it speaks of smartphone kill switches as something not yet in use. How a kill switch is activated when one no longer has the phone in one's possession would be useful information. Orthotox (talk) 17:24, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
