Legal "As was widely expected, the Federal Trade Commission announced this morning that it has reached a settlement agreement with Google, bringing the commission's antitrust investigations into the search giant to a close. Two different areas of Google's business were being explored: the way it prioritized search results, and the way that Google had sought injunctions against devices that were thought to have infringed upon standards-essential patents from Motorola." Would have loved to see the FRAND system crumble, though. Let the patent mess explode - to change the system, we need disruption, not appeasement.

Well, pretending you're in the know is enough these days to qualify.

This isn't one the mainstream professional blogs/news sites. I don't think they/we would really mind if your not in Shakespeare's league when it comes to writing. I never thought of you as a mediocre, let alone bad, writer.

Thom is the main man and we all suspect him to be a little biased, so to me it would seem like a good idea if the editorial team was composed of members that would bias in different directions.

When I was young there was a Commodore 64 oriented games magazine called Zzap!64. One person would do a full review and others would add their own very small opinion to it. Right now we have Thom that links stuff and adds his own bias, I mean, opinion to it. I think it would be cool if other opinions were added too. So how does a story look from the perspective from a Linux geek, Apple fanboy or a boring Windows user.

I don't think any other site does it like that.
