Legal So, there I am enjoying a nice Gilmore Girls episode after a long day's work, and Engadget's iPhone application brings the good news: the US Library of Congress has added a DMCA exemption for jailbreaking or rooting mobile phones! This is a major blow to Apple, who actively tried to keep jailbreaking a criminal offence, and a major win for everyone who believes that the phone you buy is actually yours, and not the manufacturer's.

Thank you Thom for getting out of your "OSNews hibernation".


Two more weeks, and my internship is over. After that, I'll at least have a couple of weeks where I can go back to the old days.

Until possibly the future arrives and my time at OSNews is really over. We'll see.

Well I for one have both enjoyed the slow pace here in your absence, and missed your unique perspective on all things tech. I hope you're able to stay with the site for a while yet, and still pursue your college life and career.

I'll miss your posts, Thom.

The site has been darn near dead the last few weeks.

So true... OSNews without Thom's articles kind of sucks, really. It went from a daily visit to "eh, I don't really care..." and a half a week passes before I bother coming back. And when I do, there's maybe two articles of interest... and even those are lacking.
