Google "Sometimes the sheer wrongness of what is posted on the web leaves us speechless. Especially when it's picked up and repeated as gospel by otherwise reputable sites like Engadget. 'Google copied Oracle's Java code, pasted in a new license, and shipped it', they reported this morning. Sorry, but that just isn't true."

It's high time people realize which sites are actually knowledgeable and how to take EACH information from any site with a grain of salt (aka, think on their own.. oh ok, I'm told I'm just dreaming out loud)
