The fact that M$ is contributing half of the money for the project and considering the number of jobs building this road will create, I would think this is mostly a win for the taxpayers. Sure a big business is getting a road built, sure that big business happens to be next in line for the throne of satan but it is a public road and infrastructure is usually the job of government. Right?

Imagine how much XXX port package could charge for their collective content... Also imagine how much google could charge for their suite of offerings. Sure it violates the "do no evil" thingy, but that has never really applied to money.

Net neutrality champs or not, would any of us pay for an ISP without the 'five boner porn package' and the 'google suite'?

addario_br writes: After many, many hours of intense work from "Nightwatch", the first independent "Hello World"* application has been compiled and launched on the iPhone. This was made possible using the "ARM/Mach-O Toolchain", Nightwatch's "special project", that he has been working on so carefully over the past few weeks. Certain parts of the toolchain (such as the assembler) are being refined and tested and these will be released as soon as possible.

Submission + - Digital camera costs to go crazy in Europe

Brad Binglinton writes: In the unlikely event that you're planning to buy a digital camera in Europe, think again. According to CNET.co.uk, the European Comission is going to increase taxes on certain cameras with certain video recording capabilites. "At the moment, all digital cameras are manufactured outside Europe. They're all imported. All of them. Currently, there's a European Commission-imposed 4.9 per cent import tariff on camcorders, but not on cameras, whatever their video-recording abilities. "
