    A security flaw in a Microsoft product. I simply can't believe it.

    This will be the end of MS dominance... and rightly so.

    Honestly, Apple should really go after this... We all know that the online p*** business is huge ("Billions and Billions... ")-- What a way to exploit the problems with MS... Have ads that basically say, "Who knew that having online s** could STILL give you a virus" or "Apple OS X = Virus-free p*** viewing for the masses!" -- Get Ron Jeremy and Jenna Jamison to do ads... Go for it I say--

    The "Patriot Act" was not struck down (if there was ever a misleading article title, there ya go).

    Not even a *part* of the Patriot Act was struck down. The law struck down was part of a 1986 law called Electronic Communications Privacy Act.

    The Patriot Act modified portions of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, but the parts struck down were not them.

    Not that anyone cares to read the facts (from people who actually know about legal matters instead of reposting PRs) read this:
