This guy is trying to be the new Bill Gates. Well, at least half of him.

• It looks like TV shows are the hot item on Bittorrent these days. What, not porn?

• Google scored (at least in court). An appeals court finds that thumbnails of photos are considered fair use. Now you can look at those Perfect 10 models during a Goole search without fear.
