Feds subpoena Google search record in battle against porn "how often users of the major search engine are hunting for sex-theme material."
Google said in a statement sent to CNET News.com on Thursday that it will resist the request "vigorously."

Meanwhile Google video store giving refunds A lot of people paid and were told they'd get an email with instructions for downloading, but never got the email.
"Rest assured, the affected video files have been replaced and are now available on Google Video. In addition to the refund, the episode that you purchased are available for re-download at no charge."

I had a question about tier broadband that marc cuban blogged about. Dont companies already charge different rates for different bandwiths already? I recall that when I set up my parents cable modem connection in Cali with SBC yahoo, they had different price plans with different upload/download speeds depending on how much you pay. Isnt this the same thing as tier bandwiths? Can you clarify thanks.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
