    We've talked about good 'ol (way over the hill) Rupert Murdoch. In a more general light, I'll commend Mr. Murdoch as he has built up a media giant. At the same time, it is an extremely backwards looking and technologically retarded giant. It's no secret to anyone in the tech world, this man hates the very mention of the word "free".
