Legal Large multinational software companies like Apple, Microsoft, and Google, rarely - if ever - initiate patent infringement lawsuits against other software companies, probably because they themselves infringe on lots of patents too. However, they do get sued themselves by smaller companies. Even though the Christian part of the world is all about forgiveness and love and pink ponies during the holidays (or, at least, they ought to be), Apple, Google, and Microsoft have been struck by a patent infringement lawsuit started by Cygnus Systems.

You mean like the Thumbs.db thing in Windows you can't turn off either?


What are you talking about? Yes you most certainly can turn it off, as was already pointed out. Go to Folder Options and select "Do Not Cache Thumbnails".
