Brigitte Bardot demands flying donkey action

Heart

Perhaps the donkey was loving it

How exactly would one tell the difference between a donkey braying in terror or joy? Maybe it was the donkey equivalent of "woooohoooo!"

Judge slaps ban on RealDVD software

DancingOmelette
WTF?

Hmm @ puns

This judge really has a thing for Vegas... and puns. She knows that movie was awful, right?

Do... do people actually break copyright by copying retail DVDs? Does that actually happen these days? I really can't imagine that direct copies of retail DVDs amounts to a significant portion of piracy these days. They'd be better off reserving their legal budgets for suing more nefarious bittorrent-wielding students.

iPhone beer maker sues Carling over virtual suds

Hi, I made a pointless iphone app, make me rich now plz

Here's hoping he loses... seriously, $3 for a beer animation? The guy's just plain greedy - as are most iphone app developers. And now he's proving it with a ridiculous lawsuit. How can he possibly claim to deserve $12.5m for such a pointless app? He probably refused Carling's licensing offer in the first place because they didn't offer him millions for it.

6m downloads of ipint != 6m lost sales of ibeer - just because people are willing to download it for free doesn't mean they'd be willing to pay $3 for it. It would provide at most a couple of minutes of entertainment.

I'd download it for free (and probably remove it again pretty soon after), but there's no way I'd spend money on it - I don't care if it is a small amount, pointless apps are not worth money.
