EU ban on Porn for equality is bullshit

The EU wants to block porn. Based on so-called "equality" initiatives.
Hangon a moment!
 
First of, porn is fiction. Just like Pinocchio is fiction. So that's out of the way.

Let's talk about equality a bit.
Let's look in real corporate business.
Women are paid much less than men in the same roles. Sometimes even 50% less. Some equality eh.
In porn, women are generally paid much more than men. Woops.. doesn't sound to bad for the women, right?

Maybe, just maybe we should focus on equality in the REAL world instead of make-believe stories.

Device size vs LTE

If I’m right, we will start seeing smaller LTE Android handset sets a year or so from now, and the tech press will collectively forget the “bigger is inherently better” mindset that pervades phone reviews today.

The first one with smaller sized and more efficient LTE will be an iPhone though.

Your old iTunes purchases (pre-no-DRM) won't be matched?

Songs purchased outside of the United States iTunes Store containing DRM (Digital Rights Management) will not be matched or uploaded to iCloud.

(emphasis mine)
Argh, looks like songs that you bought in a non US iTMS before iTunes went no-DRM will not be matched to the iTunes iCloud. I have quite a few of those (living in NL I use the Dutch iTMS mostly), I never bothered to convert them to iTunes Plus. To have them matched, I probably have to convert them to iTunes Plus first, which adds quite a few euros to the bill.

So, I guess I will just download those illegally and have them matched.. WTF are you doing Apple?

[edit]

I guess I was mistaken. I have 11752 items in my Music library. iTunes Match matched 11388 songs. Difference of 364 songs. I have about 2609 songs still marked as "Protected AAC" - the old DRM-ed files. Looks like those are matched anyway, and the 364 remaining are some obscure items that can't be matched (I don't have any illegal stuff in my iTunes library)
