About the advertising in AllofMP3. There was none when I tried it. At
this time the player is just clean and clear. The only thing that comes
up, is album art. It just plays music.

Andrew from Ottawa
On the Canadian MP booted for blogging. He wasn't just critical but also
revealed what was being discussed in the caucus. That's supposed to be
secret. Just wanted to set the record straight on that.

Matt from Indianapolis
Matt the software developer. I was wondering if Matt the patent lawyer
would want to get together. We could take over the Indy tech world.

Greg K.
I thought I'd respond to Greg's call. A company did that for their home
entertainment system. They licensed it and then got sued.


Los Angeles Area Boy Scouts collaborate with MPAA to teach young people
to respect copyrights

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) today announced a new
education program in conjunction with the Los Angeles Area Boy Scouts of
America, to help raise awareness about the value of copyrights among the
more than 52,000 young people involved in Boy Scout programs in the
greater Los Angeles area. The curriculum is part of an ongoing effort to
educate kids about copyright protection and change attitudes toward
intellectual property theft.


Ludlum, Brown, who can tell the difference

Just wanted Molly to know the although Dan Brown may have written a
novel about a DNA-based supercomputer, your first statement about the
Robert Ludlum novel was correct! <i>The Paris Option: A Covert One
Novel</i> deals with this very thing.

Apple and Windows

Hey, guys. I know I'm 1 of 1,000 e-mails you're going to get about this,
but I just want to make sure the point is made. Apple did call out
Windows, and people are right that it was immature. However, if they, or
more importantly, you folks, had gone on to read Apple's message, you
would have seen them say, "We're madder at ourselves" in the very next
breath. No one seems to have mentioned that, and as an Apple fan boy, I
guess it's up to me to defend them.

Eric the cell phone guy
