Comment: Same Thing Happened to Me... (Score 1) 798

by No Grand Plan (#42777981) Attached to: AT&T: Don't Want a Data Plan for That Smartphone? Too Bad.
I had a (Google-bought) Nexus One I was in the process of rooting it when it decided to call home; I hadn't set up the Wi-Fi yet, so it called over the network. A couple of weeks later I was notified that AT&T had switched me to a data plan ( I'd been using it exclusively on Wi-Fi until then). I was okay with paying the very small amount for the data I'd used, but I didn't have any intention of staying on a plan that included anything but voice. A quick call to at later, and they'd taken the data plan off and switched me back to my voice-only plan. Of course, that was a year ago...

The DNS Changer clean up saw some PCs prevented from accessing the web. Should such tactics be used more often to prevent malware from spreading — or is that taking security a step too far?"

Bruce Willis Considering Legal Action Against Apple Over iTunes Collection 570

First time accepted submitter oobayly writes "It appears that Bruce 'Die Hard' Willis isn't too impressed that he can't include his iTunes collection in his estate when he dies. According to the article: 'Bruce Willis, the Hollywood actor, is said to be considering legal action against Apple so he can leave his iTunes music collection to his three daughters.' Such a high profile individual complaining about the ability to own your digital music can only be a good thing, right?"
