+ - Steve Jobs vowed to 'destroy' Android->

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?"

You're at Witt's End.
