Sirius satellite radio squashes 6-year-old bug

Chris Boyle
Stop

"Piracy already costs satellite television providers hundreds of millions of dollars per year"

I don't see what attacking ships on the high seas has to do with all this, nor do I agree with the assumption that copyright infringers would otherwise purchase content legitimately, and that you can therefore call it a "cost". Please stop propagating these two most egregious examples of industry propaganda.

Google frees Android from code of secrecy

Re: Useful for some folks

Fine for me. PC sync: don't care, I have multiple PCs in multiple locations, so the "constantly sync to the cloud" model makes a lot more sense (also, people who provide PC sync tend to mean Outlook sync and I don't run Windows). Exchange support: my employer has Exchange, but I only use it for email and they have IMAP enabled. Headphone jack: this is a WTF, I agree, but not a deal breaker for me. I'll just buy a small, cheap adaptor. Stereo Bluetooth: they said at the NY launch, this will come to this device in an update.

Sony Ericsson eyes up Android

Chris Boyle
Go

LG and Samsung

...have previously said they're releasing Android phones in 2009. I wonder if their (and Sony's) hardware will be any better than HTC's? I think HTC had the better track-record of the three, up until the G1, but I don't like the look of that curvy slider. Looks fragile.
