Mac OS X It seems like flee-in-Apple's-fur, cracker 'Maxxuss', has succeeded in cracking Mac OS 10.4.4 for Intel. "We were just about to hunker down and wait through the cold winter and a wet spring until we saw some results on the OS X 10.4.4 for Intel hacking efforts, but it looks like we're getting a little Valentines present from 'Maxxuss' who has already broken through Apple's heightened security that is present in their shipping version of the OS. It's just a preliminary release, not all hardware is supported and it requires a bit of futzing around to get it to work, but seeing as we weren't expecting this kind of breakthrough this early, we really can't complain."

godammit, i keep modding people up by accident.

Again you're still equating legality to ethics. Many unethical practices has happened within the confines of the law.

If you don't like the way he sells the strawberries, then don't buy. But to agree to that rule, and then break that agreement when in fact you don't, therby wasting everybody's time and the grocer's money, then that very unethical. You're free to walk, but you're not free to lie.

It is ethical to force people to buy sweet cream from you if they buy strawberries from you?

If you don't like the way he sells the strawberries, then don't buy.

That is not a valid legal excuse, nor will it ever be.

If they are selling the strawberries for a fraction of the actual cost, and as a top up to the main course which is the sweet cream pie, then its their ethical right to do that. But if you promise to buy the cream, but you lied and just ran away with berries, then its cheating the poor fellow who's just trying to make a liiving.
