A Happy MacAddict!!

Hello readers, if you can't see it, I'm smiling from ear to ear. Why do you ask?? {Fire Marshal Bill Voice} WELL LET ME SHOW YA SOMETHING!!

Seeing that makes my heart go pitter-patter.... the Joy (one single tear slowly comes over my cheak). It seems Apple has served DMCA notice to OSx86 project. Oh Happy joy. According to Mac News network(MacNN):
"Apple is moving to prevent further discussion of running its Mac OS X operating system on generic Intel-based machines. Apple's legal team has notified OSx86 Project--a site dedicated to getting Mac OS X running on machines not non-Apple-branded machines--that it is in violation of the US DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act), forcing the site to close down its user forms and post notice[...]Apple has gone through extensive efforts to develop and install technology to prevent users from running Mac OS X on computers other than Macs; however, hackers have been able to successfully work around many of the security mechanisms in the operating system and recently posted instructions and discussion of how to alter Mac OS X 10.4.4 to run on generic Intel's"
Sadly, although the site remains online, its forums have been taken offline. If you don't know the DMCA is a United States copyright law that criminalizes the release of technology developed to circumvent copyright protection.

The OSx86 Project’s coordinators have claimed their site “is fully compliant with the DMCA,” and “intends only to provide a forum for those interested in running OS X on Intel hardware.”

Ya right, try to sound innocent now. What happened to the praise of hacker God Maxxuss?
What, no poems today???

All in all they are not the ony dumb asses out there, The iPod Observer has posted that the "RIAA is once again trying to assert that ripping a CD and space-shifting it to your iPod is not a noninfringing use (fair use) of the music you have bought."
Bottom line of what they are saying is putting music from a CD you paid for to your computer is fine, but putting that music on a iPod after putting it on your computer is illegal.

So you wanna play a disk on you home system and also your iPod? They want you to buy 2 CD's. This helps stop the illegal downloads how?? This makes people want to download music because nobody is gonna buy 2 copy's of the same CD.

Damn, more people that get paid for dumb ass idea's.

Well it's Frag Friday!!
