Online Hotel Booking Services: Be Aware of Additional Fees <http://www.ibls.com/internet_law_news_portal_view.aspx?s=latestnews&id=2495>

Booking a hotel online is very easy, but be aware of additional charges that may not appear on the main webpage visited- and will certainly make you feel "uneasy???. A recent decision by a California court held that charges not directly posted in the main payment page may still be valid charges. On February 22, 2012, a California appeals court decided the well-known-case of Frainier v. Priceline.com and affirmed the district court's summary judgment in favor of Priceline.com.

Why Microsoft Is Wrong About Google <http://www.forbes.com/sites/quickerbettertech/2012/02/27/why-microsoft-is-wrong-about-google/>

My son turned sixteen a year ago and so we decided to buy a used Toyota Camry.  We knew it wasn???t just for him.  His younger sister would be driving in another year???s time.  But for a full year my son had a monopoly on that car.  He used it whenever he wanted.  He drove it to school every day and out on the weekends.  He littered the inside with Gatorade bottles and empty McDonald???s boxes.  We let him have his fun, just so long as he paid for the gas and repairs, didn???t get any tickets, and was back at home by the 11PM curfew.   Oh, and that he was at our disposal to run whatever errands we desired. [More] <http://www.forbes.com/sites/quickerbettertech/2012/02/27/why-microsoft-is-wrong-about-google/>

You know, I'm guessing, really guessing here, that the folks at the Federal Bureau of Investigation were well-intentioned when they decided to put together a public service announcement about insider trading.  Of course, the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. . . and more than a few awkward, painful PSAs.

Trading Away From His Brokerage Firm Gets Registered Person Fined and Suspended <http://www.forbes.com/sites/billsinger/2012/02/27/trading-away-from-his-brokerage-firm-gets-registered-person-fined-and-suspended/>

It ain't cheap to trade stocks at some of the household names of Wall Street.  Compare the costs of round-trip tickets at Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Charles Schwab, and E*Trade, and you'll see quite the range of charges.  And it's not a fact lost upon the hundreds of thousands of registered persons who work in the securities industry.  Some of those folks are active traders and a few dollars in additional ticket charges imposed by their employer versus what can be had at some discount firm add up -- in fact, could be the difference between a profit or a loss.  That's one reason why some registered folks want to trade outside or away from their employing firm -- save a few bucks.  Of course, there's another reason that also comes up: Trying to fly under the radar and not letting your employer know that you're trading securities that you're not supposed to.

The Oscar's Scientific and Technical Awards Deserve Their Own Show <http://www.forbes.com/sites/alexknapp/2012/02/27/the-oscars-scientific-and-technical-awards-deserve-their-own-show/>

In many ways, movies provide a perfect integration of art and science. But the glitz and glamour seems to go to the actors, and the prestige to directors. What about the people who make it all possible? The people who innovate in improvements to cameras, sound effects, makeup, and all of the hundreds of other technical details to go into making movies a truly immersive experience, one that's far different than theater? They get a token attractive actress to host an awards presentation that gets a couple of clips on YouTube and a few screenshots during the actual Academy Awards broadcast. To be sure, a few categories do get presented during the main broadcast - sound effects and mixing, visual effects, etc. But it's usually a cursory look.
