Yep, Ubuntu One quite happily absorbs your dropbox as well,

Jurisdiction?

Lets see, The accused are not US citizens, The company is not a US company, yet the FBI (FEDERAL Bureau of Investigation) have attacked and ruined the people and their business...

Perhaps they want to be INTERNATIONAL Bureau of Investigation.

Oh right, they already consider themselves that..

I'm appalled that my Gov't is spending my tax dollars ($1,000,000 so far) http://www.3news.co.nz/Dotcom-case-costs-1m-so-far/tabid/412/articleID/250062/Default.aspx on placating a bunch of thugs from the USA.

cruel?

Dragging the kids around a department store is sooooo cruel - perhaps she should have left them out on the street to fend for themselves..

Nice to see the authorities using the kids as leverage..

Screen Real Estate

Aint no way I'm gonna substitute 2x 24"LCD's for an anything-pad with a 10" screen.. Granted some home (L)users will buy a something-pad to replace their electronic desktop game of patience, but if you actually need to work on puters all day, the fondleslab is not a replacement.

Beer cause its summer, hot, and I'm stuck inside looking at big LCD's..

WTF?

Tablets shmablets

After toying with an Android one for a week I've yet to discover a compelling use for a tablet.

Too big to be a phone, too crippled to be a laptop.

What does one do with a tablet?

disposing of her..

by locking her in that room leaves me somewhat, unfulfilled...

In the old days the bofh would have had fun first. Perhaps by searching her email for references to 'dating, home video, personal photos' etc and sending the contents to various key people, from her account of course.

People like her need to be tortured before being disposed of..
