How could have I failed to realize that iPods and iPhones and iPads, which make the vast majority of Apple's income, and are consumer devices, are actually not fit to be your work platform? Surely Apple will go bankrupt any time now.
I hope Nokia manages soon to create a Windows 8 workstation and avoid that fate.
Anyway, all websites collecting your private information, such as Google, Facebook and the like have in their T&Cs that they can do whatever they want with the information, that your are granting them the right to do whatever they want with the pictures you upload, etc.
By using them, you are foregoing your privacy AND the copyright to all your data... So insisting that private information is protected by copyright serves no purpose.
Or did he just keep it to get a payment out of Google? I believe this is a key point of such rulings.
Of course, the domain must have been near unusable: "address at gmail dot D E... No, not googlemail, gmail... And that's D E, not com! Yes, it's my address... No, it's not google..."
I would say this is normal behavior. On the contrary, I find weird people who wait for weeks until an app becomes cheaper, all that to save less money than what they would spend on a beer. Or people who adamantly refuse to pay $2 for an app that would be useful to them.
When you think logically about it, most paying apps cost almost nothing.
