Microsoft To Work With Windows Phone 7 Jailbreakers
Why would a switch in software like that that void the Warranty?
If you buy a PC, you can install any OS you like. The warranty that covers your PC is covering the hardware. If you buy a PC, have no clue what you are doing and end up trashing your windows installation, there is nothing your PC dealer's warranty will ever do for you. At least not for free. If the software is broken you reinstall it or get it serviced somewhere. If the hardware breaks down, you'll be heading up to your dealer for a warranty replacement.
Why would a phone be that much different? I even find it ashaming and harsh to realize that most people really buy that crap of "warranty is only void if you do not touch the software", like there was any warranty on the software part at all. Imagine a PC dealership trying to enforce such harsh software usability limitations like "never ever install any other software than the one you got it with, or forget the warranty". Would that actually be possible selling stuff like that? Not here in Europe at least. Imagine a car dealership that denies you your warranty on the engine after a few weeks just because you changed the seat covers. Its nothing different.
This entire "Other software voids your warranty" FUD is sparked by the providers and manufacturers that very much like to keep you trapped with them and their software, and sometimes even hold you, your device or your data hostage against yourself, pretty much neglecting the fact that you actually bought the device you are acting with, and still not wanting to give you any space to decide what you actually want to do with it. And the even worst part is, people accept it just like that.
Today's Smartphones are more like small PCs than like the old brick phones that couldnt do much. Most of these newer handsets are technically able to run many different operating systems. One can customize the systems as well, far beyond the possibilities the vendor envisioned. It sometimes feels like your PC Vendor tries telling you that you cant put any background image on your windows desktop which you did not buy from him. If you however use your own images, or god beware, remove the logo of said Vendor from the starting screen of the OS that that would be a change that possibly damaged your hardware which in turn would be void then..
Think about it.
Immigration Officer Puts Wife on No-Fly List
Nice try though, definately something that doesnt come to mind at first.
But didnt he get caught just because he applied for that promotion himself? He could have figured that there could be a background scan somewhere, and that it might raise an eyebrow or two not only that his wife is on the list, but that she had been put there by him..
Google Broke the Law, Say South Korean Police
"The country's Cyber Terror Response Center broke the encryption on hard drives"
Wait, what? Either they didnt put a too big effort into encrypting, or they got some means of unencrypting which isnt very well known..
Order of importance if disaster strikes?
Sad, but might fit for some people with a "home video collection"... just sayin'
Skype Officially Available For Android
I am still confused as of why that application wants access to all my accounts on the phone, and even wants to be able to use those other accounts as authentification method to some other unspecified purposes..

Pedestrian Follows Google Map, Gets Run Over, Sues
I wouldn't be surprised if she'll later also claim to have spilled burning hot coffee all over herself and drag Starbucks or McDonalds into it.
She didnt happen to be overrun by a Toyota by any chance, did she?

Why Don't MMOs Allow Easier Transportation?
Well, that Autopilot is just for the lazy.
It helps you to get somewhere without attending the game, but that 15km distance to the gate and the time you need to approach it make the autopilot less attractive, and even dangerous in insecure systems.
And if you really want instant transportation within EVE, go for a Jumpdrive. Its there.
Google Suggest Disabled In China Due To Porn
I guess this is the same "shipping with" deal that you have if you buy a computer in the US or in Europe nowadays.. You can be sure you have all the finest Crapware(tm) pre-installed.
And i am not only talking Microsoft here, there is nearly anything you can imagine, from Demo-Versions of crappy tools up to Trial-Versions of other Stuff that happily asks you to buy when you fire up that PC. In multiple cases there is not even a single CD shipping with these CDs, the "Crapware Welcome Assistant" helps you to create a "Recovery CD" on your own once you start it.
Statistical Suspicions In Iran's Election
So in some parts of the world it is just pure manipulation of an election, and in others where there is even proof of irregularities in the voting count and process, it isnt.
Guess Iran should have contracted that one to Diebold, nobody would speak up then. :)
A.P. To Distribute Nonprofits' Investigative Journalism
So they now offer their non-profit services created by other non-profit organisations to organisations who gain profit with that?
Remarkable value-creating chain.
