I've been wearing a $38 Chinese knock-off for a few months, certainly from before the Apple version become available. It's gold looking but has a cheap band - I have been asked about it 3 times by shop employees.
Now I wonder if it's making me a target for a mugging.
(BTW It's andorid only and fairly functional )
Not so strange that the revenge was happening in an identical manner
I've seen lots of staff in companies do stupid things "because that was the way they did it "last year

I had a copyright claim on a clip of my band doing a cover of a song we hadn't written. Almost immediately a copyright notice come up. That was not a surprise but but the claim was not for the original of the song. It was a totally different song that happened to start with the same opening chord - E major.
There is a option to acknowledge the claim, or to assert copyright yourself but no way of saying the claimant is wrong. I tried to follow this up but the response was that if I am not the song owner, it's not my concern.

You can't get a copy of the report without an order, signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public enquiry, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters
It's not the first time that Govt ministers have jumped on semantics. The extension of patent duration delays the time before drugs go down in price. It does not make them go up.
We can be confident that we won't be reading of stuff ups like this in the future - once the laws making reporting such things illegal get through.
"I'm not sure how much use a moth will be in airlifting the victims out of the disaster zone."
Frank Zappa has already demonstrated this principal in his tale of Billy The Mountain" in which the protagonist goes into a telephone booth, covers his body with maple syrup and used the resulting swarm of flies to raise said booth into the sky.
"now 19,093,090,914km from Earth at the time of writing and moving further away at a rate of about 15km a second"
If that is true I am impressed with writers ability to time his typing the the nearest .07 of a second being the time that the craft takes to travel a km.

Does Paypal have government approval to ask such questions?

Someone else for the movie industry to sue - if a German domain registrar can be held responsible for the content of websites, then it's just a few steps away
The first rule of Govt reviews- don't have one without knowing what they'll recommend
It's extra special if you can combine fast checkout with those near-field card readers. Without them you put the card in the slot . With them you wave or tap the card, wait and then repeat several times before putting you card in the slot.

American right wing groups have a long history of rejecting science or experts in any field and being damn proud of it.
I expected he'd get a free 30 day trial
"In the same way they fine small ISPs but not the owners of the cable or satelite."
I'd like to see them confiscate a satellite or cable while they investigate.

New Zealand is known as the shaky isles for a reason.
Meanwhile, what about all the poor sods still without access to their data?
