Openoffice needed a home away from Oracle, and the Apache Software Foundation is big enough to host it. Being removed from Oracle, OpenOffice was able to become a combination of Sun StarOffice and IBM Lotus Symphony. At this point in time, LibreOffice and AOO have different licenses - LO is GPL, and AOO is AL.
"We don’t really know how this coin is created. You can’t have a functional money without a basic transparency."
I remember when journalists actually learned about what they wrote about.
The biggest problem I can see with bitcoin is its value is directly related to its popularity. Where dividend yielding stocks will give you a return in a currency the government will always use, bitcoin's value is always tied into what you can get cashing it out. If it wasn't for bitcoin's strengths (as difficult to exploit, steal, and sieze) and the resilience of the Internet, it wouldn't be as successful as government backed currency.
A mildly amusing conclusion I inferred about bitcoin's design: the same conditions required to break the network (having over 50% of the mining performance) are the same conditions required to devalue the currency (excessive mining and dumping).

mkpasswd -n 512 | cryptsetup create 0
1. writes a random, but repeating string to the drive really fast
2. verifies random string which tests disk readability & reliability, but encrypted so the random string doesn't repeat if the drive is read raw.
3. can be done from the livecd, but you have to install expect to get mkpasswd.
4. you can crank up the mkpasswd length, but cryptsetup included in the F18 beta is limited to 512 character passwords.
5. easy enough to remember (mkpasswd, cryptsetup, and badblocks) that you just need to open up another terminal to do the other drives in the system.
i normally start with hdparm's --security-erase-enhanced && --security-disable so I know that the drive started blank, is written to the maximum, and I won't get a disk I'll have to unlock on the next reboot.
Many commenters here oversimplify the problem. Do not forget that Google is in a monopolistic position. Deindexing newspaper web pages could be considered as Google using their monopoly as an advantage.
They would be deindexing at the request of the French legal system, not at the request of management.
The monopolistic position you're referring to is search, which is equivalent to Bing's search (which Bing has the data to show). Continuing with the Bing-Google equivalency hypothesis, adds will be removed from the French news page, creating no ad revenue.

Amanda Ladas, of Surrey, has filed the lawsuit under the Class Proceedings Act in Supreme Court of B.C. Ladas’s claim alleges that in addition to the violation of security and privacy, Apple has “engaged in deceptive acts or practices” that entitle her and anyone who joins the suit “to aggravated, punitive and/or exemplary damages.”
Ladas said in a release Tuesday that she is concerned that, without her permission, anyone with moderate computer knowledge can find out where she’s been.
According to a report by digital forensics technologist Francis Graf, whose report is filed with the lawsuit, Ladas’s iPhone 4 contains location data, going back approximately one year, which was easily accessible using free tools readily available on the internet."
