My roommate and I are watching X-Men: First Class last night. As usual, I start nitpicking it apart.

"You know, this whole Alex Summers thing isn't even right - he's the younger brother of Scott Summers, who is a student of Professor Xavier, not a contemporary."

"No, that's Havok. Havok was Scott's dad."

"No, you're thinking of Christopher, who was also called Corsair."

"Oh yeah...WAIT A MINUTE, HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS?!"

:lol:

I had read it a couple days ago, I thought it was a fake, instead it got actually confirmed.

As a current LoL player I look forward to see what he will bring to the game!

In court filings, Apple has made much of the $1,100 hourly fee charged by Mr. Bromwich, who runs his own consulting firm and is also a litigation partner with Goodwin Procter.

The company points to the $138,432 legal bill Mr. Bromwich submitted for his first two weeks of work as evidence he is using his appointment to run an unwieldy and unfair investigation. The company notes that because Mr. Bromwich’s consulting firm is separate from Goodwin Procter, he has to hire lawyers from other firms to work with him and also charge a 15 percent administrative fee for his services.

But Judge Cote observed on Monday that “lawyers get paid a lot of money.”

She also pointed to a recent article in The National Law Journal that said it was not uncommon for top lawyers at a large law firm to bill clients at a rate of $1,000 an hour. Judge Cote noted that one lawyer at Gibson Dunn, one of the firms representing Apple, billed at a rate of $1,800 an hour.

...

Judge Cote reminded Apple and its lawyers that it did not have much bargaining room when it came to the role of the monitor.

“Apple is no position to define the scope of the monitor’s duties,” said Judge Cote, who said she would soon issue a written decision that would amplify on her ruling at the hearing. “I want the monitorship to be a success for Apple.”

I don't get it, was Apple complaining about the cost of their lawyer?

No, apple complaining about the cost of the court appointed monitor costs too much. Judge reminds them their lawyer costs them even more.

The monitor is a personal friend of the judge, so I'm sure that hasn't played a roll in it in anyway. Apple also has had issues with the monitor wanting to talk to every member of the board of directors which includes CEOs of other multi-billion dollar companies and Al Gore and wanting to monitor the Music, Movie and App stores even though they are out of the scope of the trial.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.
