Australian Schools Go iPad-Crazy
Educational institutions don't pay anywhere near RRP for Apple products.
Android tablets are ALREADY here. Haven't heard of them? They suck. The ones that are coming, could be good, but they're not here now.
Like Google's Chrome, Mozilla To Silently Update Firefox 4
You obviously haven't actually used 7 (though your criticisms are somewhat more valid for Vista) if you think there's too many UAC prompts. :P
Why Computer Science Students Cheat

A shortened url? On /.?
GAO Reports Bailout and Tech Firms Love Tax Havens
Your post made sense until (and after) I got to the part where you mention offshoring and outsourcing. How is that (conceptually) white collar theft?
32bit Win7 Vs. Vista Vs. XP
The DRM that caused so many of the problems? Where's your source on this... as far as I know the DRM is *inactive* and is just there for *future purposes* (it's the ICT flag which while not confirmed, dates of 2010 and 2012 are the common ones floated for when it'll be activated).
