| At the recent Consumer Electronics Show 
| there was a flood of netbooks and Android 
| based devices about to be launched into the

| of portable connected devices, but the 
| software that appears on these devices 
| often doesn't look or feel like "Linux".

| iPad now has the horsepower and screen size 
| to support Second Life graphics.

| dense, legal experts warn, making them even more difficult to understand than 
| they already are.
