I think the suggestion by the EU, that you cannot label apps with in-app purchases as free, is really good!
That's why I live in Texas.
You have also executed 61 people since 2010 with lethal injections, perhaps loosing ones home isn't the worst that can happen.
A machine underneath the TV, where I can play the games I like (got 100+ steam games) on my TV, by hiding away a little box, is really appealing to me.
Currently I have a laptop for gaming that I hook up to the TV (unless I play directly on it but 17" is not enough), but still, playing with a wireless keyboard / mouse isn't the best. I like the steam controller idea. I like a machine meant to be used on the TV, I like the idea of playing the games I already have.
Usually these notices ask Google to get rid of links to pirate sites, but for some reason the cable network also wants Google to
The same DMCA notice also lists various other links that don’t appear to link to HBO content, including a lot of porn related material, Ben Harper’s album Give Till It’s Gone, Naruto, free Java applets and Prince of Persia 5."

A quote from the proposed bill Arizona House Bill 2467

Can you please give me access to all your email and phone conversations? If you are not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about.
The law says that its not illegal to produce a gun at home.
The law says the exact opposite, but I'm guessing location-wise we are also close to opposite.
That's what is inaccurate.
I agree that it is inaccurate to say that Apple Maps is poor, I'd say its a compile pile of sh*t!
Perhaps you can live with the fact that Apple thinks that the Washington monument has been moved, or that the Berlin wall has been resurrected in the middle of Montreal, but when they "forget" the second biggest city in Sweden entirely (Gothenburg), I ask you, is not "very poor" an understatement?

Total previous budget 3.5 million SEK, new budget for today 400 million SEK - no anomaly there...
3.5 million? really? this just shows that slashdot mods really dont care about facts and are happy to mod post with no reference with completely made up numbers.
Here are the actual numbers
Also how much aid was given to Cambodia before Svartholm was arrested?
The exact same amount (200 million SEK) was allocated, out of which 183 million was paid out.
Swedish embassy in Cambodia has the following information around sweden's payouts to Cambodia per year (last 3 years).
Approved 2009: SEK 190 Million
Actual Payout 2009: SEK 182 Million
Approved 2010: SEK 177,5 Million
Actual Payout 2010: SEK 173 Million
Approved 2011: SEK 200 Million
Actual Payout 2011: SEK 183,8 Million
So virtually the same amount was allocated again as the past three years, but this time it's because Sweden wants someone extradited.
Doubt any of the conspiracy nuts hanging around will change their opinion but shall we at least assume there is a possibility the money has nothing to do with TPB? Maybe, just maybe, there is the possibility that Assange is wanted in Sweden for questioning because, and I know this is a bit out there, the prosecutor really wants to question him? But hey, what do I know, these days apparently Equador is for freedom of speech.
Do you honestly think that is what this whole thing is really about?
Lets go through some of the arguments people are constantly bringing up.
Let's start with "going to the US" thing. Why is it more likely that he will be sent to the US instead of Britain, they both have extradition agreements with the US. One incident where Sweden sent two egyptians without a trial to the US keeps being brought up, perhaps it'd be good to remember that it was an incident because the courts were _not_ involved, here, they are. Oh, and Sweden cannot extradite him if death penalty is a potential punishment.
"It was a rape, its not a rape in country X, the case was dismissed, politically motivated blaha blaha"
Shall we let the courts decide, or was anyone there and can give a definate answer on what happened that night? On the one hand, people want justice, on the other, this should not apply to the women who might actually have been assulted.
"Ecuador is brave" -- yea right. At least the president is for free speech, as long as it agrees with him that is. Julian Assange calls him a brave man, what a load of crap. You simply cannot be for free speech and full disclosure, and the think the president of Ecuador is a great man.
"They offered video-links, interview in embassy etc etc etc"
If you commit a crime in Sweden, you are interrogated and tried in Sweden. This is the law, and Julian Assange should definitely not be given special treatment.
"They wont guarantee he isn't going to be sent to the US" -- No, because Sweden cannot guarantee that since they have an extradition agreement with the US, just like Britain cannot guarantee that either. He however seemed perfectly fine with being in Britain until now.
The worst thing that can happen to Mr Assange is that he is sent to Sweden, interrogated/tried and [sentenced or released], and the US keeps on not giving a shit.
