I'd like to see the experiment where they're entangled, one is dropped through a black hole's event horizon, and you observe the result on the other. Time compression should have an interesting effect on the half-life of the retained entangled one until it crosses the EH.

Wow, I bet you could make an incredible bomb in a science fiction book like that.

NEW YORK (Reuters) — A U.S. federal jury found that Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT — news) infringed audio patents held by Alcatel-Lucent (ALU.PA) (NYSE:ALU — news) and should pay $1.52 billion in damages, Microsoft said on Thursday.

Microsoft said it plans to first ask the trial judge to knock down the ruling and will appeal if necessary. It said the verdict is unsupported by the law or the facts.

Alcatel-Lucent had accused the world's biggest software maker of infringing patents related to standards used for playing computer music, or MP3, files.
