Have you noticed that with copyright, the people who complain loudest and longest about how unfair it all is often the least talented?
Have you noticed that there is a verb missing in this sentence? Is the word "ARE" copyrighted?

I have it up and running on the "home theatre" pc where I run only literally two programs foobar2000 and VLC player.
I installed successfully on the main pc but:
- could not send email from Outlook (according to the MSFT forums it can be resolved running the "sfc /scannow" command but I found out when I was already back on Windows 7)
- MS Money does not run. You can make it run editing the registry but it still doesn't import OFX files (it crashes when trying).
- My TV card had a wrong driver installed and it didn't work.
- I hate the confusion of the half-baked start menu.
- I don't want to use "search" via bing to find something on MY computer.
So back to Windows 7.
I am afraid all those commenters banging on the point that this is not news, carry on nothing to see, etc, fail to realise that Apple is a global company and in some countries in the world you go to jail or you get sentenced to death for being gay. Besides, teenagers coming out to their parents usually do not get that "so what" reaction even in our first world countries.
So as long as these things still happen in the world, a celebrity coming out as gay is still news unfortunately.
If you deal with an American company it doesn't matter where the data is, a US warrant will be enough. For the American government other countries' laws do not exist or are just meaningless.

If my pension can only be saved using these pathetic speculative tricks then here is an idea: tax those who get rich thanks to these speculative tricks and use the money to give us a decent state pension. If you have plenty of money and want to speculate to make even more, good for you but you take the risk, not me with my small pension pot.
The state will collect tax and use it to pay pensions to the normal people who can't afford to take risks.
PS: I am fed up with the "free market" religion.
You can use android-sync (www.android-sync.com) to create local contacts and calendars on your Android phone and sync your outlook data over USB. That's how I carry my work calendar and contacts on my Android phone. The local contacts and calender are not synchronised with the Google cloud so Google thinks I am Billy-no-mates and I spend my days in bed never meeting anyone.
