Adam curry threatend by Dutch music lobby
From Adam has been contacted by several Dutch representatives of international music services tell him "hey, this file's on your server, it's licensed music, get it off there." Adam has removed episodes with such songs on there. Adam has even "cleaned" his computers at home of every possible mp3, and now has only podsafe tunes on there. Adam will not play any non-podsafe song on the DSC. No more Mashups. If it's not on PMN, it doesn't get played. This seriously pisses me off. You ......

A case for the MDA Pro
Now I have my cool phone, I will need a cool case. since I got a Piel Frama case for my previous phone, and was so impressed by the quality, I will remain brand-loyal and order with them again. These really are great cow-leather cases. I used my XDA one for 3 years and there was hardly any wear at all. The belt-clip they use is also very sturdy and will last long, though I will likely order a few spare. ......

So in my case.. it would not accept my goold ole .. one ......

Phone stolen
My long time mobile buddy, my first gen XDA, was stolen last night during a trip to cinema and restaurant. I doubt it will be of any use to whoever has it, its three years old and uses an extremenly propriatary connector, so likely it will run out of power in two days. They also cant get in cause of password, but they will likely try to reset it. I am actually more miffed about loosing my 512mb sd card that was in it. Now I cant listen to my podcasts either! Grrr… Its funny.. I was is some ......
