The hardest question for me to answer in this world is always the "Tell us all about you" question. The best way for me to answer is that "I am composed of contradictions and subject to change without notice."

Unlocking a little freedom

We are once again free to take something that we legally purchased and choose the service provider. Strangely enough we have been able to do this for years with our land-line phones, but not so with our "never-leave-home-without-it" cellular phones. Some cellular phone companies lock the phones they sell and make it very difficult and potentially costly (in more ways than one) to have them unlocked. Not anymore - according to Gizmodo we now have the freedom to have our cell phones unlocked and change carriers as we see fit. To quote their site:
"Copyright laws were amended to allow customers to unlock the software on their cellphones so they can take their phones with them from wireless carrier to wireless carrier."

And high time, too. Unlocking a phone's SIM card is a fairly simple process, and the idea that copyright is somehow involved - else the DMCA would never have been invoked in this matter - is ludicrous in the extreme.
