FindLaw: Prop 8 Arguments at 9th Circuit to Be Televised

Prop 8 Arguments at 9th Circuit to Be Televised – Civil Rights Law – Decided

By Tanya Roth on November 24, 2010 11:51 AM

Will the revolution be televised? If you consider the arguments regarding California’s ban on same sex marriage, Proposition 8, to be in any way revolutionary, then the answer is yes.

A federal court of appeals has ruled that both C-Span and local news station KGO-TV may televise the arguments before the court. Oral arguments are scheduled to be heard December 6.

Makeuseof.com:The First Unofficial Guide to Dropbox [Save PDF or Read Online]

The First Unofficial Guide to Dropbox [Save PDF or Read Online]

You’re at the coffee shop. You need to access a file that has information about your work, but as you attempt to find the file you realize that you’ve made a mistake. You saved the work on your desktop computer, but you only have your laptop with you. You have no way to access the file.
Enter Dropbox. This program acts as a “magic pocket” which is always with you and contains whatever you place in it. Put a file into your Dropbox and it’s on all of your computers and mobile devices, really handy if you own multiple devices. But there’s more to Dropbox: you can use it for file sharing, backing up your data and even remotely control your computer.

If you’re not using Dropbox yet, you should be. Lucky for you our new MakeUseOf manual “Using The Magic Pocket: A Dropbox Manual” is now available for download.

It’s informative, easy to read and, like all of our manuals, completely free.
