I especially like them because then it means I don't have to dog ear the page to mark my place. If there's something I want to remember, I can then dog ear the page, and still use the ribbon to keep track. Yeah, I could use a pen or a bookmark or whatever else to mark it, but I only had to bring along the book, nothing else.

I discovered the Everyman's Library series a while back and have come to love them, and have started a collection of them. The ribbon bookmark, nice binding, good "extra information", as well as the award winning Pevear/Volokhonsky translations for their Russian books.

My E71 can use Ovi Maps, but the only problem is that as of now you have to use a subscription, over the air system to get navigation (just like Google maps, sans subscription). What this new update does is allow offline navigation, but that new option hasn't been released (yet?) for the E71.

It's kinda clear, actually. Article I, Section 8, Clause 8. "To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries".
If Congress wants to regulate patents in a way that helps big business, then they can.
