Legal "Sony has won its request for a temporary restraining order in its PS3 jailbreak case against Geohot and fail0verflow, despite a jurisdictional technicality. At the same time, the judge at the US District Court for the Northern District of California has allowed Sony to keep the lawsuit in San Francisco. The restraining order forbids the jailbreak team from distributing or linking the jailbreak procedure, or encouraging others to jailbreak or hack their PS3 or PSN. They've also been ordered to turn over any computers or storage media used to create the jailbreak to Sony's lawyers." Land of the free fail.

Yes, really.

Neither me nor any of the members of my family own a single product from any of those three corporations.

Our computers are either Dell or those I put toghether. All of them run Linux except from mine ... thats running FreeBSD. All of us use Windows at our jobs and that´s about it.

We never bought, and will never buy no matter what, Ipods, Iphones, Ipads, Iunameit, Apple computers or any other Apple appliance for that matter. There´s a huge number of mp3, mp4, mpX players from a huge number of different vendors to chose from and the same thing applies to cell phones (samsung, motorola, nokia, etc) and smart phones (should we need want one, and we don´t).

As for the rest of our stuff, my TVs are LG, Samsung or Philips and my DVD players are from Matsushita, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, etc ...

Only one of my nephews owns a video game console and it happens to be a Wii ... the rest of the gaming goes on on our PCs.

As for your assumption:

"The simple fact that you've posted that reply here indicates the contrary - nothing's more certain than there being a product from at least one of those companies involved somewhere along the line in the delivery of your post."

aside from your logic beign flawed, the reason why I read the article and decide to post it´s because I´m a lawyer, I practice Consumer´s Right Law (amongst other branches of the Law) and I´m a concsious customer.
