Quote from the article "In disposing of the case, Judge Huling ruled that the Court did not have jurisdiction over Take Two and Sony, since neither corporation has offices in New Mexico. Judge Huling also ruled that New Mexico laws did not support Thompson's wrongful death claim in the case."
Killjoy_NL writes "In a surprising post-election statement at the WEB 2.0 summit, Eric Schmidt criticized Bush' privacy policies. From the article: "The Google chief executive, Eric Schmidt, yesterday vowed to resist attempts by US president George W Bush's administration to obtain private information on internet users." Also from the article: "Earlier this year, Google succeeded in having a subpoena allowing access to huge banks of data on the habits of web users overturned by a federal judge."

They found that the radiosignal that was used to send the vote from the computer to the server could still be read from 10 meters. "This is too big a risk to the privacy of voting, that's why we revoked the licenses. They can go back to paper voting or get different voting computers."
