Legal "It's possible to use Apple's iPods and iPhone with third-party software, and BluWiki's users wanted to make sure the world could find out how. Apple, however, was not fond of the situation and threatened BluWiki with legal action if the information was not removed. Now, BluWiki's operators are suing Apple in hopes of protecting the free speech of their users and getting a declaratory judgment that posting information does not violate the DMCA."

I guess lawyers are no different than coders then. I know if I have the choice between dull maintainace coding on some legacy codebase and working something new and exciting that I've always wanted to try I'll chose the latter.

The fact that the latter choice will take me several tries to get right, quite likely end in failure and technically isn't even that great an idea to begin with won't dissuade me in slightest.
