  1.

  3. I read a review where Firefox's HW accel. is actually better (or faster) than IE9's.

    So, if thee previews will use the same HW accel., then yes Microsoft, I gues I'll stick to my "partial" HW accel...

    So, according to the digital resale article, if EULA's are so binding, if apple says you cant jailbreak you iDevice, and they discover you have, can they sue you? (or other situations like this, just thought of this because apple wants jailbreaking illegal, even though it was just ruled legal)

    Those IE9 platform preview pages looked pretty neat.

    Bringing the phone experience to a computer near you.

    So where are the touch input "pads" for computers? I don't want to put fingerprints on my monitor.

    IANAL, but Jailbreaking and reselling software or hardware with embedded software are two different situations covered by most software EULAs, with there own separate sections (though the later is usually much more plainly written). In most cases, all a company can really do (or rather, what they'll usually do at most) is void any and/or all applicable warranties when it comes to jailbreaking, especially with the Jailbreaking exception recently added to DCMA.

    Alright, I was just curious if the EULA coverage was different between thing like that

    If you're curious, you can look at the 2009 iphone EULA (not sure if its still current):

    Section 2 part C and Section 3 refer to "tampering/reverse engineering" and software/hardware resale respectively.
