I'll admit... it's entirely possible that I don't understand the meaning of that word.
The Dark Side of the Tech Patent Wars
This is what happens when businesses and government consider "intellectual property" to be a great base for an economy.
Why wouldn't they think that? Seems like there's a lot of people making a lot of money in litigation.
Wikipedia May Censor Images
The problem is that the moment such a filter is implemented, organizations that already use other methods to get rid of images they don't approve, will demand such filter to be enabled on their whim, without allowing people to opt out.
As long as the organization's you are referring to are not ISP's then I'm fine with this too. If you're on someone else's equipment (eg: work), you are subject to their rules.
Wikipedia May Censor Images
they are giving you the option to censor images. I think that's a fairly large distinction.
Why Netflix Had To Raise Its Prices
Not just ESPN... in fact, not espn at all. You're pretty much screwed on just about any live sporting event. I would've given up cable long ago if not for this fact.
EA Considers Service-Based Business Model For Sports Games
EA is better off putting out roster updates. They practically own a monopoly on sports games (particularly the Madden series), and whenever they put out a new "feature", it's usually more-or-less something that benefits them and hurts the consumer. I'm sick of buying half a game, and EA is one of the biggest offenders IMO.
DOJ: We Can Force You To Decrypt That Laptop
With a warrant, they should be able to decrypt your laptop... but I certaintly wouldn't help them do it. Isn't there something in the constitution about not having to implicate yourself?
Computer De-Evolution: Awesome Features We've Lost
But how will the government know what you're doing if your device is turned off?
China Alleged To Use Prisoners In Lucrative Internet Gaming
"There are presently 80,000 inmates in the US employed in commercial activity, some earning as little as 21 cents an hour."
Well, they do get free room and board.
PayPal Co-Founder Gives Out $100,000 To Not Go To College
100,000 dollars really isn't that much money.
Major Release of Miro Aims to Compete With iTunes
I think you're missing the point here. I don't think the point is really about DRM or openness. I think the major point is Android. I buy my music off of Amazon, but it would be nice to have a way of syncing my device the same way iPhone users do. I know there are a few applications out there to do it, but like you already pointed out, none of them are nearly as polished as iTunes. Anything close and I'll probably give their tool a shot.
Why Has Blu-ray Failed To Catch Hold?
Blu-ray is the only feature Sony hasn't taken out of my Playstation 3.

NASA Picks Up Rainstorms On Titan
So what you're really telling me is - they can tell me its raining on Titan, but I can't seem to get reliable weather forcasts here.
Online-Only Currency BitCoin Reaches Dollar Parity
Isn't the dollar already worthless?
Maybe... Maybe not. I can still go into any store in the US and buy something with good old-fashioned cash. If I went in their with my digital wallet of BitCoins, they'd probably laugh at me.
On a side note, if they were real geeks, they would've called them credits.
Fox News Brings Video Game Violence Debate To a New Low
You may be preaching to the choir, but it's all about the bottom line. Fox news isn't really news - it's entertainment. Fox will continue to sell what people are buying. People think that they are dumb and uninformed, I disagree - I think they are very smart and very informed... about money. All other news outlets are carbon copies of the same formula with a different spin.
US Has Secret Tools To Force Internet On Dictatorships
the response is broadcast in the form of printouts of the requested web page dumped out of a Hercules C130.
Why use a plane? Theres already an RFC for carrier pidgeons.
Hack Chrome, Win $20,000
I hacked it to make Bing come up with the same results as Google... Please send me a check or a money order.
Microsoft Vehemently Denies Google's "Bing Sting"
Its also quite arguably libelous claiming or inferring that a competitor is stealing your product. If they actually believe this to be true, why not launch an actual lawsuit. God knows companies love to use their lawyers. Otherwise, I'd just call it competition, and if MS happens to have a better product, Google should be nervous of them.
Russia Launches, Loses, Finds Military Satellite
So... did someone else launch a natural satellite?
Is that a serious question? The moon is a natural satellite.
