No Photo Ban in Subways, Yet an Arrest

,----[ Quote ]
| Finished with his camera, Mr. Taylor, 30, was about to board the train when a 
| police officer called to him. He stepped back from the train. 
| “The cop wanted my ID, and I showed it to him,” Mr. Taylor said. “He told me 
| I couldn’t take the pictures. I told him that’s not true, that the rules  
| permitted it. He said I was wrong. I said, ‘I’m willing to bet your 
| paycheck.’ ”  
| Mr. Taylor was right. The officer was enforcing a nonexistent rule. And if 
| recent experience is any guide, one paycheck won’t come close to covering 
| what a wrongful arrest in this kind of case could cost the taxpayers.

| suggested that most were legal.

Myka sneaks BitTorrent into the living room

,----[ Quote ]
| OK, perhaps not so sneaky, there's a nice big BitTorrent logo right up front,
| but Myka seems to be quite the end-to-end solution for getting those torrents
| up on the big screen. The box hooks up to the internet via LAN or WiFi,
| includes a 80GB, 160GB or a 500GB drive for storage and runs a torrent client
| on Linux.
