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 have a Norwegian friend. Her parents are Chinese. She also speaks flawless American-accented English. When she says she is from Norway people think she's lying - until she begins speaking in Norwegian.

Well, Norwegian's who speak proper English and have made no effort to hide their accent sound... Minnesotan.

Seriously, if I go 'up north' there's little difference in accent, though most Norwegians have better diction...
