+ - Google Privacy Plain and Simple - or Illusion?

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "In his blog post, Arik from SecuriTeam mentions his views on the recent Google blog posting on their privacy policy. "I strongly suggest you watch the clip and have your own opinion. Below is my own: What Maile neglects to mention is that Google keeps all the queries you submit together, correlated by your cookie, including the user you use to login to Google, the links you clicked on in search results, any site you visited with a Google ad, every address you mapped, every product you searched, every video you watched, etc. which makes up a nice profile of your behavior online." How much privacy do we have, really?"

+ - Court Concludes Novell Owns Unix

1 a bee (817783) writes "In a new twist involving SCO's ever worsening prospects in its legal adventures, MarketWatch reports that in a case involving Novell, " the court concludes that Novell is the owner of the Unix and UnixWare copyrights."

The presiding judge has also ruled that Novell may now direct SCO Group to "waive its claims against IBM." Novell has not indicated, according to the article, whether it will do so. This is an opportunity for Novell to show its better colors. Will Novell direct SCO to waive its claims against IBM and others? Or will it try to wield this new ruling as an ax against the rest of the Linux community?"

You know you've landed gear-up when it takes full power to taxi.
