Louis Vuitton sues eBay, for selling ‘luxury’ fakes. First question what took so long, and what makes them think they have any possibility of winning or even settling the lawsuit.
I think its laughable that companies still think they can get away with such stupid lawsuits, the bottom line is the profits can’t be all that good, on their end.
Staminee de Garre (Beer Bar), Brugge is categorically one of the best places in Europe.
13% House Beer – Its so strong you can only buy three glasses.
ICANN is full of good ideas, especially on how people use the internet.
The net’s regulator, Icann, voted unanimously to relax the strict rules on so-called “top-level” domain names, such as .com or .uk.
The decision means that companies could turn brands into web addresses, while individuals could use their names – BBC NEWS
Despite the fact it opens up a whole slew of stupid domains, it means you can no longer guess a domain name by picking the brand and adding .com or .co.uk it also means domain squatting is going to get more and more common, even if initially domains cost six figure sums.
ICANN – The idea is stupid, work out a better way, and try to find some way of regulating domain squatting not making up stupid ideas and justifying them by saying it will make the internet easier to use, because it will not!
This is a new one for the reviews section, Music!
When you think Mike Oldfield, you think Tubular Bells and The Exorcist. Music of the Spheres is completely different yet very much the same, based on the premise that everything in the universe has a unique sound or vibration. Oldfield has orchestrated a journey by music through the universe.
Its a very good album from big impact tracks, to very subtle and calming tracks. Its the sort of album you put on at the end of the day and just kick back and relax to. While it could be argued its just a re-hash of oldfield’s old catalogue circa Tubular Bells 1. I still enjoyed it.
Verdict – 4 Stars
