PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Every now and then (or, actually, rather often) you come across a story which once again exemplifies why governments should keep their paws off anything remotely related to technology. It seems that not knowing anything about technology is one of the prime reasons why governments the world over fail so spectacularly when it comes to technology-related lawmaking. The latest in the series? France. My southern neighbours (I never acknowledged Belgian independence) are thinking about extending their piracy levy, normally found on CD-Rs and mp3-players and such, to cover tablet computers as well. However, tablet computers running Windows are exempt.

Is there a way to show you that I'm french also ? Show you my blue-white-red colored peter ? Seriously, you really believes that since you cannot master foreign languages, so do foreigners about your native tongue ? Grow up a little, I was told french are arrogant pricks, beside that's your kind of people that drew me into this false idea...
