That was written prior to October 1998, when the Copyright Term Extension Act of 1998 was signed into law. Besides, that applies only to the underlying musical work (as embodied in sheet music and the like), not to any sound recordings thereof. Sound recordings fixed prior to 1972 are covered under state copyright until 2067.

I'm so glad the netbook concept is dead.

I disagree.

Who wants a cheap Windows laptop anyways?

I do. I carry a 10" laptop while I commute to and from work on the bus because it fits in a bag that doesn't scream "steal me" the way a full-size laptop bag does. It's a four-year-old Dell Inspiron mini 1012 with 1-core 2-thread Atom N450 CPU and 1 GB RAM that runs Xubuntu. But once its second battery pack loses its ability to hold a reasonable charge, I'm looking at replacing it with an ASUS Transformer Book (quad-core Atom, 2 GB RAM) running Windows 8.1 + Classic Shell.

Why would anyone on the backwater planet want to connect a pad to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse and try to use it like a desktop?

So that you can continue to work on the same project between the tablet-like environment and the desktop-like environment without having to bounce everything off Dropbox and eat into your monthly cap.

No musical recordings have entered the public domain due to expiration of copyright. Ever. When the U.S. Congress expanded copyright to sound recordings in 1972, it allowed existing sound recording copyright laws at the state level, some of which provide for a perpetual term, to continue for one full work-made-for-hire copyright term. This means all sound recordings produced before 1972 are under copyright in at least one U.S. state until 2067 (17 USC 301(c)). If the songs were first published on or after January 1, 1923, the songs are not in the public domain in the United States. If at least one songwriter was surviving on or after January 1, 1944, the songs are not in the public domain in the European Union.

Gingerbread is finally disappearing but it's taken a while.

I still haven't seen an iPod touch counterpart (that is, a 4"-class tablet without a cellular radio) that runs recent Android. Both the Archos 43 Internet Tablet and the Samsung Galaxy Player are stuck on 2.x without rooting and CMing the thing because they lack the RAM for 4.x.

aren't there privacy issues associated with SNI? [describes outline of attack]

Someone monitoring your DNS requests can see the same hostname that you're sending to the SNI server. Besides, pre-DNS, someone monitoring your TLS requests could see the IP address to which you connect and the certificate that the server returns.

I read Slashdot's non-mobile site without problems on my first-generation Nexus 7 tablet. Chrome and Firefox both do a good job of blowing up the text so that it's readable without having to scroll sideways. I have Slashdot set never to use the mobile site because the mobile site didn't support the Preview button when I checked.

If you're not careful, you're going to catch something.
