I just graduated from studying law (whew! Finally) and I'll say my eyes were opened with that I learned.

The main thing is they put the material up on their Site. Even if it was an error, they can't force anyone to stop reposting it under the guise of confidential information, but they can issue a 'takedown' notice to enforce their copyright, which it sounds like they did.

He could, if he wanted, write up the specs in his own words and cite the documents as sources... That then becomes protected speech,since it's a news/editorial work and they can't do a damn thing. But that's enough digression out me. Lol

Before I become licensed as appraiser I had to go through quite a few property law courses and it was mind numbing. I don't think I could follow the foot steps of a few of my classmates and study law. Props to you for sticking it out.

Further, you're correct in what you say about 'citing' what he saw. However, sometimes it's not worth the hassle or the headache which can come from defiance.

Was just reading an article about the FCC ruling that Verizon cannot block tethering on their phones.

I'm wonder if this ruling was holding up the release? (Can't release a blocked version)

I googled it Tom's Hardware US first one that came up. Does that mean that vzw can't charge you if they find out you're using an app to tether for free? Ie, if you pay for4gb of data, they can't tell you how your phone can use it? I'm not clear.

Not to add any more undue fuel to the fire, but it would seem Verizon Wireless' Spectrum Support page removed the links to the copy of the manual hosted on their site.

Perhaps in expectation of the new ICS manual?

my google search source says the spectrum will receive updates to ICS in Q3 now....doesnt have any specific date...im really really really really really hoping for it to be early september because it would be an awesome thing to play with before the college semester gets into full motion..

I too must agree. I think ICS and the subsequent updates would help people like us out a whole lot. I'm talking just general productivity. My school is bascically tethered to their website, and I find myself on that more often than I find myself in class. Much needed browsing improvements.

I agree. the browser on the spectrum is way too jumpy to do anything important with. I'm looking forward to using chrome.

and if the stock launcher we get is the same ics LG launcher I put on my friends epic4g touch... this update is gonna be amazing

Chrome isn't all that. It's great having bookmarks imported, but it's a bit sluggish and glitchy. I tend to use Dolphin on my tablet with 4.1 on it.... It works smoother and faster with ICS. Another issue I have with chrome is the lack of 'end' button to kill the app. If you use it a bit, it can eat up a grip of ram.

I tried the tablet beta... Dolphin HD aka dolphin now, is smoother, as counterintuitive as that sounds.

I've tried opera and opera mini... I didn't like the lag in loading some pages and the feel.

Boat mini, Maxthon and dolphin mini are my favs.

The only thing that bothers me about Dolphin is the cursor zoom "jump" I get on some forum post's and other random things, very annoying, so must keep others for those purposes.

The lack of a back button with dolphin made it hard to use on my old phone that had physical buttons at the bottom. What kind of a browser doesn't have a back button?

It actually does on dolphin mini. A button appears on the bottom of the screen Whenever you touch the screen. Hitting the menu button brings up a forward and back button, and you can use gestures to trace the command i believe. Lol dolphin mini has become my go to browser, for its speed, and the fact that it has a built in switch for user agent and screen brightness.

Yup, and it only takes 1 press to see it, rather than dolphin that takes 2. Sounds like a silly thing to care about, but the fewer work it takes, the better Imo.
