Got to order my Raspberry Pi today. I can't wait to get back to the US and play with it.

I thought juries where supposed to be composed of your peers. Doesn't this mean the jurors should at least know how to program and how to write an API?

Bad decision people. Hopefully, the judge is smart enough to realize it and either grant Google the mistrial or says flat out API's cannot be copyrighted. I would prefer the latter so we don't have to do this again in the future.

Very good argument as to why API's cannot be copyrightable. I have always said and felt this but never had such a good argument to back it up.

I sure wish America would do the same thing. I think this would also solve Google's problem with Orical and insure API's where not copyrightable. If the jury does side with Orical, we all are in for a world of hurt.

Though I do not torrent any more (and never did from a public listing site like BitTorrent) I think this is great news. I think warrants based solely off of IP address are crazy and a violation of privacy. Good job Judge Brown!

Google was kind enough to let me know that someone signed on to my account in India. It, obviously, was not me. I've changed pw's but if you got an email from me that seems strange, it was not me. I have never asked for money or personal information in an email before (or what ever else someone might do if they hijack your account.) Please let me know if you did get something odd from me. I have no saved address book so mass emailing will probably be very difficult for said person/bot.

If you haven't done so, go google "zerg rush" It's pretty cool! (Thanks +Tyler Nezat for showing me this.
