Legal "Motorola Mobility has been granted an injunction against the distribution of key Microsoft products in Germany. The sales ban covers the Xbox 360 games console, Windows 7 system software, Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player. It follows a ruling that Microsoft had infringed two patents necessary to offer H.264 video coding and playback." But... But... The MPEG-LA, Apple, and Microsoft have been lying to us all this time about the safety of using H264 over WebM, with their supporters blindly parroting the party line? This surprises me greatly and deeply, and I dare say I have not seen this coming at all. Not at all. No sir. Not at all.

Member since:

So I'm stuck buying retro stuff on-line.

The only problem with that is that such stuff breaks from old age (like my Atari Lynx 2, RIP 2004-6, sniff).

Today I received a calculator in the shape of a 3.5" floppy disk.

Heh. Was this it?

It even includes a warning not to use it as a real one although now I'm a bit tempted to find out what happens if I do.

Um, yeah, I wouldn't do that, it'll just break something. ;-)
