Court Says First Sale Doctrine Doesn't Apply To Licensed Software
"Far more reasonable prices"? Hah. More like they'd just stop allowing reselling and leave the prices as is. After all, captive audience and no competition.
13-Year-Old Trades iPod For a Walkman For a Week
You fail at Nyquist. CDs are sampled at 44.1 kHz, which (by Nyquist's sampling theorem) means that any frequencies below 22.05 kHz can be perfectly reproduced. If you believe that you can hear noises above 22.05 kHz, I would invite you to submit yourself for medical research -- human hearing peaks at about 20 kHz.
Comcast To Bring IPv6 To Residential US In 2010
Y'know, IPv6 was a finished standard 10 years ago. IPv6 is RFC 2460, dual stack is RFC 4213... The *only* thing you've named that's even a draft standard is Teredo. Otherwise, IPv6 was recommended for general use and roll-out years ago. That Windows Update is breaking things is a case of your IT staff being incompetent, not IPv6 being a "draft standard" or "not ready for use".
Empirical Study Shows DRM Encourages Infringement
That's because there aren't> any user-enabling features of DRM! The only DRM in Steam, which you uphold as such a "wonderful" DRM scheme, restricts the user!
BTW, a mere login page so you can download something you already bought isn't DRM. Don't make things up, please.
Microsoft Patents the Crippling of Operating Systems
Which is, of course, bullshit. "Congress shall have the power to promote the Progress of Science and the Useful Arts" is the quote, by the way.
Judge Opens Hearing On RealDVD Legal Battle
Except that twos complement is meaningless with unsigned integers, and big endian and little endian are exactly the same. ;)
Obama Anti-Trust Chief on Google the Monopoly Threat
Christine seems to think that Google is a monopoly in the world of online advertising -- that much, I find no fault with. However, thinking that they need antitrust actions seems just foolish to me. Sure, they may be a monopoly, but they have yet to actually abuse this monopoly. Since the purpose of antitrust laws is to avert the abuse of monopolies, surely it would be a far better use of the court's time to go after those who continue to abuse their monopolies, such as Microsoft and cable and phone companies?
A Software License That's Libre But Not Gratis?
Given that libre is only used in the English language to refer to what the FSF calls "free software", I'd say that using libre as you are is, at best, an outright lie.
Wiretapping Program Ruled Legal
Actually, it's more than that; it states what the government can do. If it's not explicitly enumerated in the Constitution, then the government can't do that. Of course, our Constitution has been trashed ever since the idea of "inter-state commerce" got broadened into something rather asinine...
Obama Wants Broadband, Computers Part of Stimulus
You do realise that that all happened on Bush's watch, right?
