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.

Ah, so you only say nonsense when trolling.

Grammatically correct down to punctuation, and what you say is sensible... but I didn't know that the UK levies those... or are you Australian... a kiwi? The US doesn't do this...

You _said_ English was your first language, so it must be one of those, unless you were LYING.
