Legal Well, the first of the big patent litigations is over. Since this one involves Apple, the big winner is obviously the highly innovative company from Cupertiono, right? The company from which all others copy, right? Well, no, not exactly. The big winner is Nokia.

You can't choose what power company you use.


Really? At least in Finland you can buy your electricity from any company you like. You only have to pay transfer fees to the company that owns your local branch of the grid.

Doesn't work that way in the United States. Pretty much there is one electrical utility company that serves most areas, and you have to buy it from them. It used to be the same way with phone companies, although phone company deregulation pretty much stopped that. It's now possible to use any phone company you want. But you can't do that with electric companies.
