Legal "Earlier this month Judge William Alsup ordered Oracle and Google to disclose any journalists or bloggers either has paid that could have commented on the Oracle v. Google case. Both parties responded last week - but Judge Alsup didn't think Google was completely forthright, and has asked the company to try again by the end of the week." Good to know Alsup is on top of this. Google claimed it hadn't paid any shills, but as large and powerful as the company is, I find that very hard to believe.

Must be a slow week

There's been no news at all for the last few days, and now, this. Must be a slow, boring week for news.

Slashdot has been relatively boring, too--but there's been more activity and a semi-interesting story or two at least.

OsNews can do like Slashdot, but then OsNews couldn't be taken seriously.

I look at Slashdot as more of an entertainment news site. Whether you want to fully trust the summaries or not, that's up to you. Obviously, if you really want to know about something you would RTFA linked to in the summary and not take Slashdot's often poor summaries as 100% accurate. You can slam Slashdot all you want, but that's not going to stop anyone from going to it.
