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.

I second how good your English is. It's good to see some people hang onto a language once-learned.

You're welcome.
Also good to see someone polite on the Internet.

Too bad someone else seems to dislike politeness...

If I may: your english is so "native" that you make the same mistakes as native speakers: "iOS shares it's core Mac OS X with" etc...

Yours,
A fellow frenchman :-P

[I am not a grammar nazi (Godwin p!... No, wait), but for a non-native speaker, who learned the langage before speaking it (and not the other way around), the common mistake between "its/it's", "your/you're", etc. is really disturbing, because we pay more attention to the meaning (possessive pronoun/conjugated verb) than the phonetics. So Jaxx is really a native english speaker ;) ]
