First like to say luv the magazine, I'm a long time reader back to the days of boot. I had been enjoying the maximumpda channel on AvantGo, was nice to be able to sync my pda and have someing interesting to read when ever I was having to wait on someone or something. But for the last couple months all that is posted is a message stating "workign on new templetes and should be back up in a few weeks". Now I could be wrong, if MaximumPDA is not associated with MaximumPC and someone was using the name likeness to fool people in to reading there articles I aplogize for wasting your time.

If you have a RSS reader on your PDA, you can pull the stories from our RSS feed at http://www.maximumpc.com/index.xml

As for copyright infringement for using the word Maximum in the title, while I think we probably could file some sort of suit for infringing our trademark under the goofy US intellectual property laws, I wouldn't encourage it on general principle.

Maximum was a word long before Maximum PC was around, and it will continue to be long after Maximum PC is gone.

That would be www.mobilemagazine.com :-)

Of course, they need to kick the web server right now.

An attitude I, for one, find very refreshing. I have never felt that "Just because I can" was sufficient reason to file a law suit.

MaximumPC will never be gone!

(Maybe another name change but that would be silly. I am already laughing)
