The court order that allowed Kim Dotcom’s property to be seized was declared null and void by a judge. It doesn’t necessarily mean that he’ll be getting his property back, but it does give his lawyers some ammunition to fight back with. I still wouldn’t expect MegaUpload back up anytime soon.
EA is closing down servers for several games including some that required an online-pass. They’re all older games that will live on until April 13. I’ve never really considered games to have a shelf-life. That’s a little weird.
I’ll Be Taking That Bite Back
Apple is going to be paying dividends to shareholders and buying back shares over the next 3 years. I wish I had $11 billion to throw around. I’d have tons of tiny $100 bills printed and fill an Olympic swimming pool with them and live my lifelong dream of pulling a Scrooge McDuck.

Everquest has gone free-to-play. I seriously didn’t realize it was still around let alone still charging people a monthly fee. You can still pay the monthly premium and get unlimited access, a $5 one-time fee for an upgraded version, or play for free with some hefty restrictions. Or you could completely bow out like me. Just saying.
Pinterest currently lets people start up an account with just about any name. There have been a couple of instances of someone raising enough stink for Pinterest to get involved, but there are several people that have accounts under a celebrity or company’s name. I’m sure they’re going to end up following suit with Twitter by having celebrities verify their accounts.
Ladies and gentlemen, there you have it. Monday’s edition of TL;DR. Be sure to find that @kelknaughty guy on Twitter. I hear he’s pretty awesome.
