According to this Greenpeace( =upiUPI-20070405-122532-1884R&show_article=1) report, Apple is one of the least "green friendly" electronic companies, ranking near the bottom in nearly every category.

Submission + - Christian porn addicts seek help at XXX Church?

policy | whitehouser writes: "With the fate of .xxx domains looming and no clear direction given by Congress, the adult industry appears safe for now. Religious advocates believe an online red light district will serve to advertise and not regulate pornography online, which has become a hot topic within Christian communities. Notwithstanding the adult industry's dominion over Internet content, Christian ministers seek to derail porn among Christians and others seeking counsel.

The objective of his online venture is to help break people break their internet porn habits. While the domain name seems to contradict its purpose, it is achieving the objective: to help porn addicts with their problem.

Submission + - Sci-Fi Writer John Ringo vs. Vista, Word, & DR

Ruach writes: Sci-Fi writer John Ringo writes a detailed description (almost a short story) of the PAIN of having to upgrade to Vista when his XP laptop died — hint he made a mistake "a BUNCH of my songs are from MSN Music, which has been closed down." It is so long his web master put it into a PDF.
If this is the future of DRM computing — Linux will take over the desktop. A quote from near the end of the article, "If anyone can set me up on Linux, I might as well switch over. But I'm going to need major hand-holding. I've been an MS slave for a long time. But Vista has broken me." — John Ringo
