This is also the subject of today's Ctrl+Alt+Del comic.
Aubron Wood has made a nice web page out of the comic, he was the first one to do so. But I like this one even better:
It also has all the "special" frames (when something changes, when there is dialog,...) listed at the bottom.
The Pirate Times introduces the 3 elected representatives: Iceland Report #4 : History Made by a Hair’s Breadth
Rick Falkvinge, founder of the original (Swedish) Pirate Party, comments: celandic Pirate Party WINS, Enters Parliament

Reminds me of DLC Quest, a game which parodies this. You have to pay (with in-game coins) to unlock "features" like moving to the left, sound or animations. I got it a few days ago in the latest Indie Royale Bundle, but that offer has expired now.
Why is it that a bug accepted in 2010, and which received a lot of comments from others with the same problem, is still not acted upon? Is it lack of resources?
Disclaimer: I filled this bug report.
Kriek has fruits in it
(Belle Vue is actually one of the worst brands of lambic beers, try Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen, Boon or Lindemans. And no, I don't suggest you drink it for breakfast
Peter Sunde himself has mixed feelings about TPB AFK. In the end, he's not very happy with it...
On the one hand, the movie is great in terms of photography, editing, sound. The experience the viewer gets of the movie is kind of like a thriller. But on the other hand, it’s not my view of the things that actually happened during this period.
The film maker, Simon, who I consider a good friend, and I have different views of what the movie should be. It’s his film though so he makes all the shots. There are lots of scenes in the movie that are well edited to be something different than they are. This is all part of making a movie, drama is needed. I’m not happy with all of them, and I don’t like the dark and gloomy view that Simon has of the past years. The editor (whom I’ve never met, so he has no real idea of who I am, just what has been filmed of me) has cut the movie in a way that is very different from what I’ve experienced.
Here is an article in Dutch which includes a rendering of the island.
The capacity would be 300 MW, equivalent to a standard gas power station. It could provide electricity for 3 hours a day. This would be sufficient to intercept peak usage during morning and evening hours (1.5 hours each).
One of the contractors would be the Belgian dredging company which also worked on the Palm Islands in the United Arab Emirates. Building of the island would take around 2 years. Price: around 800 million euros.
A number of Pirate Parties around the world are experimenting with tools like LiquidFeedback (Wikipedia link). First of all, they use it internally to shape their party program, policies,... But in countries with elected representatives like Germany, they are also looking into using these tools to let the people have a voice in the point of view their representatives defend. Some interesting articles on the subject: How the German Pirate Party's "Liquid Democracy" Works & How Germany’s Pirate Party is hacking politics.
LiquidFeedback is an implementation of the ideas of Liquid Democracy, providing tools for making proposals, suggesting amendments and voting. A mayor feature is the ability to delegate your vote if you don't have the knowledge or don't want to invest time for certain subjects. For different subjects, you can delegate to different persons, or chose to vote yourself. This gives you a mayor advantage over classic representative democracy, where you have to vote for one person or party which will represent you on a wide variety of subjects. Also, you have the option to change your delegates later on without having to wait for the next elections.

I found this article, linked at the bottom of TFA, much easier to understand: Leprechauns and Laser Beams.
No, that's not what they are talking about. This is about searching in the iTunes store: there is still no way to indicate you are searching for an app, a song or a TV series, and you get all of them in the search results. When in the iTunes store, the search field has no drop down.
And the drop down in the search field when browsing your library was already there in iTunes 10, with the All / Artist / Album / Composer / Song options. They just added the "Search Entire Library" option now.
On the bottom of the front page are 9 logos, Apple is not one of them. On the Stewards page are 10 organisations/companies, including Apple. But Apple is the only one without a link to a description/statement of the company. They seem to be the neglected stepchild here?
And Slasdot puts them first in the title, and categorizes the article in the Apple section
Google has a maps app ready, and it's already submitted to Apple. The only thing holding it back is Apple approving it. So that may be next week, in a year (like they did with Google Voice) or never (under the "duplicates a native service" rule).
