He could have strengthened his legal case if he’d teamed up with other manufacturers. Currently, he is operating in a vacuum.

Re: Sounds like...
a 'party line' was used as a plot device in the Doris Day romcom Pillow Talk to connect two strangers who antagonise each other at first but ultimately fall in love. Perhaps a 'party IP' remake is due. Better hurry up though, it will be an anachronistic joke soon (at least outside of the UK).
obviously there is nothing stopping them copying the files - but clearly a man of great principle, our hero Bruce wants his wishes to be legally sound when declaring them on his last will and testament. Assuming he wins and is allowed to bequeath his digital music to his beloved daughters, they will then have to argue over who gets what. "Daddy would want me to have Angel by Robbie Williams" etc.
Tonnes of lottery funding for what are clearly well run programmes produces great athletes: perhaps not surprising. I would say this is despite the mixed quality of school sports infrastructure/teaching/support. My experience of secondary school sports was that of PE teachers who were bullies, a slavish adherence to the national curriculum which meant lessons often consisted of a couple of weeks learning about a random sport (e.g. volleyball) before moving onto something else without mastering even the basics and sports teams that were run voluntarily (albeit with more enthusiasm and less bullying!) by Geography, English and History teachers.
I've heard there is a lot of buzz around these guys' research..
.. I'll get my coat
after n posts..
For any story about Microsoft, what is the average number of posts before the discussion 'degenerates' into: why I love/hate the ribbon?
Nicholas Cage remake of The Wicker Man
or 63 in dog years! Well done Rover.
you can allow free roaming cows as long as you make them wear nappies
I suppose baked chips are healthier than deep fried.
in Germany, a cable channel employee once interrupted a porn film with footage of a sporting event.
stop giving these loons the publicity they so desperately seek.
The public sector: putting the IT back into shit since time immemorial.
If it's portability you need just buy a desktop of equivalent spec instead and with the money saved you can hire a sedan chair + crew to transport you and your machine wherever you need to be.
I have no need for a 3D tellie because the only programme I watch is Star Trek: The Next Generation on DVD (indeed, even bog-standard widescreen is unnecessary too). Some may consider it ironic that I shun new technology because of my obsession with the past's vision of the future.
Not to be confused with Glen Beck.
This guy puts current and past tech in custom made boxes.. e.g. xbox 360 gubbins in a replica Atari case.
He releases a new episode of his show every fortnight and the results of his projects are impressive. What's taking C64 USA so long?
Have you tried turning it off and on again?
In theory, companies learn by their mistakes and improve their products and services as a result. But in the brave new world of the cloud, many more users of paid for (and free) web services will find themselves the victims of human error and weaknesses in system design. Still, in the case of flickr, with millions of unique users, you have to be pretty unlucky for something like this to happen to you (which is clearly no comfort if it does happen!).
"There's nothing that the iPod does that I say, 'Oh, wow, I don't think we can do that.'"
This is a particularly meaningless statement. Essentially Apple did the hard work in terms of functionality, usability, style etc. and then Bill Gates said "yeah, we could copy that". Well done Microsoft, except that your attempt was poor.
Sharia Law.. it's too good for em'
I like how the Mail is simultaneously pro harsh punishments for criminals (death penalty, long custodial sentences, life-means-life etc) while being anti Sharia law. If the Mail was consistent, it would launch a campaign to have Sharia law introduced in Britain, instead of writing scare-mongering articles about it. But then if the Mail was consistent, rational or logical about anything it would have fewer readers than the Independent.
