The Courts

+ - Tax Fugitive challenging authorities to show law

Submitted by the Gray Mouser
the Gray Mouser (1013773) writes "Fox News is reporting the story of a New Hamsphire man "holed up with armed supporters in his fortress-like house after being convicted of tax evasion."

"I want people to realize that there is no such thing as an obligation to pay income tax," said Edward Brown. "It has nothing to do with the Constitution.""

+ - Terrorists using Google Maps to plan attacks

Submitted by the Gray Mouser
the Gray Mouser (1013773) writes "Fox news is reporting that maps printed from the Google Maps website have been found during raids of terrorists' homes. The map had a British base at Basra palace marked with exact coordinates plotted out.

Interesting to note is that some soldiers stated they had considered suing Google if mortar shells had dropped on them."
Input Devices

+ - Voting Machines causing problems in many precints

Submitted by the Gray Mouser
the Gray Mouser (1013773) writes "The AP is reporting problems with election voting machines forcing poll workers to go with paper ballots.

And even where the machines were working correctly, the poll workers weren't: "In Indiana's Marion County, about 175 of 914 precincts turned to paper because poll workers didn't know how to run the machines, said Marion County Clerk Doris Ann Sadler. She said it could take most of the day to fix all of the machine-related issues.""
PlayStation (Games)

+ - Forget violence, Bully is Gay?

Submitted by the Gray Mouser
the Gray Mouser (1013773) writes "It is being reported that not only is Bully the violent video game everyone was expecting, but you get to make out with other boys as well.

"Bully" stars 15-year-old Jimmy Hopkins, who must navigate cliques, fights and young love at his new boarding school, along the way winning brawls, completing missions and plying girls with candy and flowers in exchange for kisses. But Jimmy can also use the same approach with boys.

This may cause far more controversy than anything brought up about the game so far, but not in a good way."
Technology (Apple)

+ - Apple DRM cracked

Submitted by the Gray Mouser
the Gray Mouser (1013773) writes "Fox News is reporting "A hacker known for cracking the copy-protection technology in DVDs claims to have unlocked the playback restrictions of Apple Computer Inc.'s (AAPL) iPod and iTunes music products and plans to license his code to others."

Maybe now we won't have to burn before we rip."
