growse writes "The Associated Press has obtained excerpts from Walter Isaacson's authorised biography of Steve Jobs in which Jobs threatened to "destroy Android, because it's a stolen product.". Jobs went on to say "I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong.". Do Apple hope to destroy Android by persuing Samsung (and others) in court?"

+ - Vista Deactivated by Installing / Running Programs

growse writes "It seems that even the most every day tasks can cause Vista to deactivate itself and require reactivation. Ed Bott has written about his experiences with such issues and includes a screenshot gallery of what the user experiences when Vista decides to deactivate itself. Microsoft has a support document about the issues here.

Is this an indication of more anti-piracy screwups to come? It seems that we're past the point of anti-piracy measures being only inconvenient for pirates, so now that legitimate users are being affected will they start to look for other OS options?"
