I hope Verizon wins this and unbundles the expensive sports channels.
Disney (ESPN) especially is the biggest problem of all.
Verizon's attempt to take sports channels out of its basic cable package is setting up an epic standoff with some of the biggest media companies in the country. Latest to weigh in: Fox and NBC sports channels.

Great article! Shows why the EU is completely misguided by accusing Google in this case and if EU persists, it will be consumers who will get hit the most. And even without EU, Google is in danger of losing in many markets anyway due to the shifts in technology...
As the antitrust case against Microsoft showed, the giants that look most unbeatable can falter in ways that have nothing to do with the actions of government regulators.

The cruel and unjust policies of the Saudi Arabian citizens. This country should not be one supported by the US government. Execute immigrants when defending against horrible crimes committed by native Saudis. 
Indonesia's government summons Saudi Arabia's ambassador in Jakarta to protest against the execution of an Indonesian domestic worker.

Updated the "import prices into older Quicken versions" script to version 0.6.
It started failing a couple of weeks ago, likely due to a change in the Yahoo feed. Script is now fixed and working again.
Uses Yahoo finance API to look up the prices of stocks and funds and converts it to a format that Quicken can understand, so don't need to continually shell out money to update Quicken.
For Microsoft Windows only.
Quicken is a package that works pretty well, but the manufacturer has a tendency to periodically block functionality. For example, right now Quicken 2006 will be unable to download updated prices starting in April 2009. There is certainly no technical decision behind this - it is just a ...

From Newton's Theory of Everything to M-theory, very nicely outlined.
Physicists want to find a single theory that describes the entire universe, but to do so they must solve some of the hardest problems in science

If there was no video, there would have been no justice. Police Unions would have made sure of that.
The North Charleston officer, who is white, had said Mr. Scott, an apparently unarmed black man, took his stun gun. But a video shows the officer firing at him eight times.

Inter-city buses come on top again! Woo-Hoo.
Still, having done Boston to Montreal and New York a bunch of times, there is lot of scope of improvement in customer service and bus quality. Much better now than a few years ago, hope it continues to improve.
City-to-city buses get over 200 miles per gallon per passenger, making them the most fuel efficient travel choice.

"Mr. Graham, 78, a two-term governor of Florida and three-term senator who left Capitol Hill in 2005, says he will not relent in his efforts to force the government to make public a secret section of a congressional review he helped write — one that, by many accounts, implicates Saudi citizens in helping the hijackers."

I support this effort! Go Florida Democrats!
Bob Graham, the Democratic former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, has recently submitted affidavits in two court cases seeking to link Saudi Arabia to the attacks.

TurboTax manipulates politicians to prevent the IRS from doing what is done in many other countries (and even partly in some US states).

The maker of the TurboTax tax preparation program opposes return-free filing, a system that might eliminate the use of its software.
