marcellizot writes "What would you say if told you that there are people out there that want to make sharing your media between devices over a home network illegal? According to Jim Burger, a Washington, D.C attorney who deals with piracy in the broadcasting industry, certain broadcasters want to do just that. Speaking in a recent podcast, Burger remarked about how the broadcasting industry is keen to put controls on sharing media between devices even if those devices are on a home network and even if the sharing is strictly for personal use. When pressed as to why broadcasters would want to do this, Burger replied simply 'because they want you to pay for that right'. WebTVWire has a full report."

pete.com writes "The latest ChangeWave consumer cell phone survey — completed July 20, 2007 — shows a virtual upheaval occurring among cell phone manufacturers and service providers as a result of Apple's (AAPL) entry into the space. Although iPhone sales are still in their nascent stages, the effects on cell phone manufacturers are already beginning to take shape — and no company is bearing the brunt of this more than Motorola (MOT). While it still leads all other manufacturers in terms of current market share (31%), Motorola has dropped 2-percentage points since a previous ChangeWave survey in April to its lowest level in more than a year. http://www.emediawire.com/releases/2007/8/emw54418 5.htm"
