Submission + - Apple Loses Court Battle In Europe (muktware.com) 1

sfcrazy writes: Justice will prevail. The European Courts have once again reinstated the faith in justice. Apple today lost its monopolistic battle against Samsung and Android. The Dutch court has rejected all of Apple's design and patent claims but one. The remaining patent can be easily circumvented as it is related to how photos are shows.

Submission + - Modern Human Slavery - Nerd Causes (state.gov)

Oxford_Comma_Lover writes: The 2011 Trafficking in Persons Report is out. We nerds remember freeing the slaves in the Copper Coronet, watching Sam Beckett fight slavery's vestiges in Quantum Leap, and Doctor Franklin's Underground Railroad, but sometimes do not know the twelve-year-olds at risk or actually enslaved in our own town. As well-educated, gifted, and capable people, should we learn and read about modern slavery and spend a little time fighting it, as fictional heroes did? Or was Sam only Don Quixote, tilting at windmills behind a somebody-else's-problem field?

Submission + - Wikileaks loses DNS

An anonymous reader writes: EveryDNS has terminated Wikileaks' DNS access, citing multiple massive DDOS attacks that interfere with their other customers. Wikileaks is still available via IP address for the moment, although that could get hairy if they lose another hosting provider. You will remember that Amazon terminated Wikileaks' account after pressure from Congress, denying "post hoc, ergo proctor hoc" by pointing to their terms of service.
