    And whats funny here is that if you take a minute to compare prices of the same car sold in the USA VS. Japan, japanese pay on average 25% more for the same car as Americans do. Random selection.i.e Toyota FJ Cruiser same make and model same stock features. USA PRICE$27'130 (MSRP)in Yen 261万JAPAN315万 [($32'498 US dollars) MSRP]It makes no sense!!! Compare any car sold in Japan even japanese brand and its gar more expensive in japan to have. So even with the price fixing its still cheaper but eill get xheaper still in the West and make wonder how japanese can be so oblivious to this problem.

    Just came from Compton and Inglewood. I can't imagine it's that bad. Kids take a bus to avoid one street block at night if there's too much heat on the streets so they don't become a story in the newspaper if they get that far.

    The only thing the US has said, is what side they're on and that if they break this injunction then if they are in the flag state of the USA they will be arrested. In international waters or 'high seas' they are in free waters. Only piracy is subject to special persecution.

    I think when people panic they miss a tremendous amount of information. It would be an easy situation to panic on board of a large ship.

    They have a chance to move on from the typology they discovered and create something truly inspirational right now. If they can survive, and discover something for people to find personal value in they will overcome what's currently holding them back.

    @Fadamor I think you are trying to tell everyone who reads this that your trying to be different and that mac is somehow the ultimate mainstream.

    Let's be honest here, Apple has a very small take in the computer market. Approximately 8 to 9 percent. The IPhone market is another story. Steve Jobs along with all those who worked for him before he died, worked to make and change technology and the way people interact with it in their daily lives. He brought a deep rich narrative and understanding by creating a tool that people can relate to and value.

    Keep telling yourself that your special...See how that works out. Cause no one cares if your trying to be this antimac person. That's not what this is about. It's about Apple's right to defend their creativity and originality. How would you feel if you created something completely original and someone else copied your idea and tried to sell it. Not to mention they helped you build yours and saw how good it was, and then said "Hey, let's make the same thing and take their business from them." That is infringment and unethical corporate practice.

    Grow UP!

    Expect to pay at Noma. The average cost is about $1000USD, and lasts about 5hrs. Obviously wine is included, and you certainly pay for that too in the cost of the dinner. However, the pairing of the dishes and wine is excellent, but some people argue that from season to season the menu doesn't always live up to final bill.

    @Cleatus & the-Harper:

    Your both still missing the point...It may be unethical for them to sell cigarettes, but its more in principle unethical for the state ( Government) to refuse their rights when without a bill in place that properly restricts them. Wake up, your missing the real big picture here.....

    If there is a bill in place for them, then there would be a bill in place for any other company that may do unethical practices...But you can't restrict only one...That's unrealistic.

    @the_harper

    I am sorry, but I don't think you seem to understand the real argument. the tobacco companies are fighting for their brand recognition. Imagine the government said any athletic logo like nike or adidas could not show their logo mark that they clearly have a right to show as a product like any other product in this world had to stop. This is about their how their users view their brand and how they are trying to stay consistent with their strategy to sell tobacco to those who want it. It's unfortunate that people are buying tobacco but the companies have that right to place their brand on their product. If the government wants to keep receiving money from tobacco they have to play by the rules they create and enforce.

    This is not about non-smokers, its about tobacco companies and their rights. I don't like smoke smell either. This is a smoking country, and its tobacco and beer are deeply embedded into the culture among many things.

    I believe that Microsoft's complaint is way to late to start making a complaint. It's been a couple years in knowing this and now they complain about identity bypass...What's up at Microsoft that is so pressing for them to suddenly make this complaint.

    I think Apple has a reasonable concern considering they have always positioned themselves along with taken all the steps to not enable bypassing identity protection. How much Google has to pay? I think before they start targeting Google they should start targeting those who have taken advantage of the bypass for capital gain i.e. Amazon and Facebook which have clearly done so...Charge the advertisers if that's possible too..

    I would like to offer a more clear definition of the word(s)

    terrorist/terrorism

    and some perspective.

    terrorism noun the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.

    ecoterrorism (also eco-terrorism) noun violence carried out to further environmentalist ends. • the action of causing deliberate environmental damage in order to further political ends.

    While government position in Canada, The USA, Belize, Norway, Togo, and The UK have revoked Sea Shepherd vessels registration to enter their ports due to the fact that they define their actions as "Single Issue Terrorism" there has been wide press and position from a variety of other political positions that support their agenda, i.e. The Dalai Lama and a variety the Australian Government and other governments who believe that the Japanese Government has overstepped International Waters Laws.

    Special interest terrorism, also called single-issue terrorism,[1] *is a category of terrorism. It differs from traditional right-wing terrorism and left-wing terrorism in that extremist special interest groups seek to resolve specific issues, rather than effect widespread political change.[2] * ** - Canadian Security Intelligence Service**

    I find it interesting that so many people are not in favor of Sea Shepherd's quest to protect our wildlife at the risk of their lives and for the freedom of species to have the chance to thrive in the future.

    I wonder what Michael Sandel from Harvard University might say on the matter?

    @ sf2k : I think that would be really good and dangerous. It could spark a firesale if they were all down possibly. That would cause a serious social problem on information demand. But I agree with you.
