A few minutes ago, a publicist for Adobe, Anne Yeh, e-mailed me to say that the company has revised the terms of service for Photoshop Express, the subject of this week's column. Instead of the open-ended claims on users' content that the old agreement made, the new legalese is much...

Checking Up on the DTV Conversion

Earlier this week, the Consumer Electronics Association held its annual Washington Forum, a multi-day gabfest on tech-policy issues.
