Legal "Sony has won its request for a temporary restraining order in its PS3 jailbreak case against Geohot and fail0verflow, despite a jurisdictional technicality. At the same time, the judge at the US District Court for the Northern District of California has allowed Sony to keep the lawsuit in San Francisco. The restraining order forbids the jailbreak team from distributing or linking the jailbreak procedure, or encouraging others to jailbreak or hack their PS3 or PSN. They've also been ordered to turn over any computers or storage media used to create the jailbreak to Sony's lawyers." Land of the free fail.

RE[2]: Years ago I woke up ...

Really? So you use no goods or services the production or delivery of which use products from any of those companies? The simple fact that you've posted that reply here indicates the contrary - nothing's more certain than there being a product from at least one of those companies involved somewhere along the line in the delivery of your post.

As admirable as your intentions seem, the simple reality is it's total folly. It's like protesting about depleting the worlds fossil fuel reserves while having your kitchen cupboards full of plastic containers.

While you're right that it would be impossible to totally avoid any use of the big 3, you can certainly avoid any direct contribution.

If it wasn't for my laptop coming with Win7 pre-installed (which now runs ArchLinux), I wouldn't have a single Apple, MS nor Sony consumer product at home (and I'm pretty sure I haven't contributed much in the way of non-consumer products by them either - except perhaps with items that pay an IP license fee to Sony/MS/Apple)
