She. She was a she.

Oh, my! Hah ha ha, please forgive me! Ha ha ha ha That's a good one!
Since SCO consists almost entirely of lawyers at this point, its just a question of which lawyers get paid...theirs or yours. Go for the less-lawyers solution.
Seriously, is there no limit to this barratry-fest? Surely the judge must tire of it eventually.
You go first.
Wish I had mod points. +1 for sure.
I always thought something was fundamentally wrong with the universe.
Holy crap, score one for the good guys. I have no idea how much practical effect this will have on the 5 Eyes/NATO/EEC surveillance machine, but if nothing else it gives hope that basic concepts of liberty and privacy are not completely dead.
Could one of our EU folks enlighten an ignorant Yank on the force a national judge's ruling carries with regard to EU-wide law and regulations?
The death of expensive designer watches is nowhere near imminent. Apple will reach it's usual target market of shallow, social-climbing neo-yuppies, but the truly wealthy and stylish will always go for ostentation and style over flavor-of-the-month gadgetry. Two different market demos entirely.

Some people commit suicide because their life sucks so much they don't want to deal with it any more. People should be afforded the dignity to make their own choices without pseudo-altruistic nannying.

Oh, by the way, I have personally witnessed a suicide. A roommate blew his brains out in our living room because his "pain management" doctors couldn't manage his pain (neurological disease). I regretted his situation, but I respected his choice. I wished him godspeed as he gurgled his last auto-reflexive breaths.
The battery was not dead. It was just pining for the fjords.
And you think the TLA's haven't compromised that too?
