Bible.com Investor Sues Company For Lack Of Profit 181

Posted by samzenpus
from the isn't-it-ironic dept.
The board of Bible.com claims that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than to make money on the domain name, but an angry shareholder disagrees. From the article: "James Solakian filed the lawsuit in Delaware's Chancery Court against the board of Bible.com for breaching their duty by refusing to sell the site or run the company in a profitable way. The lawsuit cites a valuation done by a potential purchaser that estimated bible.com could be worth more than dictionary.com, which recently sold for more than $100 million."

+ - Nerd Baby Gifts?

Submitted by qrv9412
qrv9412 (1758922) writes "A good friend of mine had a little girl last night, and i am trying to figure out where i can find the right gift. I want something that is not the norm, and will be remembered. Are there good sites online to find something of that sort? He is a mac guy, engineer, and has a awesome wife that will understand something nerdy. I was thinking baby clothes, but i am sort of selfish and i want it to be a gift the little girl will think of that creepy friend of her dad's when she looks at it. A friend recommend a star named after her, but from looking online it is nothing official, so not really worth it."

I use yahoo to host my spam e-mail and my personal domain e-mail. This worries me, as i have many many customers on my address book but the last thing i need is joe bob from northern missouri knowing when im online. I was thinking of switching to gmail to use with my new evo i get tomorrow, but can they host my domain?

I work as in automotive sales, and i was telling my manager about this story. He replied, sounds like they need to put more hours in and come to work to work. He recomends they watch some joe verde and that might improve the workplace morale. Also they shouldn't be huddled up like that, as everyone knows nothing good happens in the huddle!

My little brother is down in thailand now, and i want to e-mail him on this but am afraid to raise any red flags down there. I wonder when our government is going to try this in a national emergency, i am not trying to be a tinfoil hat guy. It does seem like something once done, its gone forever the true freedom of the internet.

Thailand Cracks Down On Twitter, Facebook, Etc. 130

An anonymous reader writes "The ongoing poitical turmoil in Thailand has inspired the country's Ministry of Information, Computers, and Telecommunications to issue a stern warning that all users of the Internet in Thailand must 'use the internet in the right way or with appropriate purpose and avoid disseminating information that could create misunderstanding or instigate violent actions among the public', that 'all popular websites and social networks such as facebook, twitter, hi5 and my space [sic] will be under thorough watch,' and that 'Violators will be prosecuted by law with no compromise.' Thailand has draconian anti-lèse majesté laws which are routinely abused in order to settle political scores and silence dissent, and recently implemented a so-called 'Computer Crimes Act' which appears to be almost solely focused on thoughtcrimes and censorship, rather than dealing with, you know, actual crime. Several Web forums have recently been shut down, their operators charged because they failed to delete 'harmful posts' quickly enough to suit the Thai authorities."
