    So Google jumps in with Mozilla and Opera and moan about MS to the EU about browser domination and now that the EU are looking into their search practices, they spit their dummy out.

    What comes around goes around.

    Fair do's to the EU. Don't pick on one of them, pick on all of them. Frankly I'd love to see Apple get a beat down in the courts.

    Interesting article here:

    I think EPIC2014 is slowly coming true:

    Although one thing in their favour is the removal of DRM on music, it means tracks bought on iTunes can now be used on other devices. This may have kept the EU at bay for a while.
