You cannot serve warrents to search property in other countries.

It doesn't matter where the property is located, the company is incorporated here and in doing so has submitted to the jurisdiction of the court. The court has personal jurisdiction over the company. If you don't like it then move the company out of the court's jurisdiction. This is law 101. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

+ - domain name suspended due to issue with domain registrar->

Submitted by rriegs
rriegs (1540879) writes "The popular DistroWatch Linux and BSD distribution tracking site has had its .com domain name suspended as a result of unspecified issues with its domain registrar, Doteasy. Founder Ladislav Bodnar reports:

As many of you noticed, the domain name was suspended by the domain's registrar, Doteasy, last Sunday. I don't want to go into details about what exactly happened as it's a long and boring story. Suffice to say that I feel grossly aggrieved by the series of greedy and even malicious actions taken by Doteasy and as soon as I get this sorted out, I will be looking into transferring the domain name to another registrar.

DistroWatch continues operations at its alternate domain name, Can anyone recommend a suitable, Linux- and BSD-friendly domain registrar to help get DistroWatch back online under its chosen URL?"

it's really astonishing, to see AMD still afloat.

No, I think Intel keeps them around to get around anti-trust regulators. AMD should get into more consumer markets. For instance, I use Macs, but I'd like to give AMD some of my money so they can keep the competition up with Intel, because ultimately this will mean better Intel chips for my Mac.

Why does everyone overlook the fact that the eye is a device that leverages quantum mechanics? The simple fact that we can observe the electromagnetic spectrum is proof of this. By extension, it would be reasonable to conclude that the brain also leverages quantum mechanics.

Apple couldn't care less about headphones, they want the digital streaming rights that Beats Music has so they can integrate a subscription service into iTunes. I wouldn't be surprised if apple spins off headphone business after it incorporates their marketing and sales staff into the apple fold. There is no way I see a beats logo showing up on apple hardware.

Like maybe record labels have been trying to bend Apple over a barrel when they ask for streaming rights, and in this deal, Apple acquires the streaming rights that Beats had, thereby side-stepping the deal.

Yes. You hit the nail on its head. Beats music is a direct derivative of MOG, and they had a 16 million track music catalog. Apple is already in the music on demand business and subscription music service is the next logical evolution. This subscription service will be wholly incorporated into iTunes, and $10/mo will get you access to 16 million iTunes tracks. You'll of course still have the option to buy the track, but who would what to do that? The record label's royalties are going to be significantly impacted. This was a smart move by Apple, they've just cornered the online music market for the next decade.
