Some big high tech companies have apparently decided to throw their weight into being against some proposed laws that would force copy protection to be embedded into PCs and an array of consumer devices, as asked for by Disney and other big media owners. So, that is good news, and it essentially means that those laws will not go through. As Microsoft and Intel obviously have more votes than regular people. According to Mercury News:
The Business Software Alliance and Computer Systems Policy Project -- two prominent high-tech trade groups representing Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft and other Silicon Valley heavyweights -- are forming a new coalition and working to enlist support from consumer and business groups.

They hope to convince Congress that strict copy-protection legislation setting technological mandates would stifle innovation, harm consumers and threaten an already-suffering tech industry.

i still hold the pt tat it's an art like creation and art is aylaws luxurious and romantic:Pi just see it as an interesting stuff for ppl to reflect about things happening around us. 搭程巴士去半夜的海邊 is different from having your own private little place which you can travel with. No cost needed! (if u are the creator, haha)

The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn't disappoint me just as much as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my chioce to read, but I genuinely thought you would probably have something helpful to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something you could possibly fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.

That tragedy on Pakistan is constantly on the worsen simply because relief components and enable fall far except what important. More enable is seriously needed given that the potential for lots of fatalities starts off to loom.
