A Peek at AT&T's New Browser, Pogo 239

An anonymous reader writes "Ars Technica takes a look at Pogo, a browser from AT&T with new features like a 3-D history and bookmark view. The browser's currently in a private beta and Ars' comments aren't all necessarily glowing — particularly in the areas where performance is concerned. 'It requires Windows XP SP2 or later or Windows Vista, and its minimum hardware are surprisingly steep: a 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, and a video card with at least 256MB of VRAM. Seem like a bit much for a web browser? It is, and as we found out, these requirements posed some major challenges for us during our testing.'"

Submission + - Media giants threatened with lawsuit by DRM vendor

mdahl writes: "Media Rights Technologies threatens to sue media giants. Media Rights Technologies claims to have invented such a good DRM device, that the giants are forced to use it, or become viable for sue under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. According to ComputerActive.co.uk:

"MRT has sent out cease-and-desist letters demanding that the companies stop production of the infringing devices or face a lawsuit claiming anywhere from $200 to $2,500 for each unit sold."

Media Rights Technologies said that Apple's iPod and iTunes, Microsoft's Windows Vista, Adobe's Flash Player, and Real Networks' Real Player are all knowingly enabling the theft of copyrighted material.

How this will do in court is yet unknown, but MRT is playing with the big boys. Will this be the end-all DMCA case?"
