    Can anybody tell me, if an Australian retailer imports a product from China that is essentially a copy of another product designed in Australia, can the original designers sue the retailer or would they have to sue the Chinese company that copied the product in the first place? Keeping in mind that the retailer never supplied the original to be copied and it was available for purchase from China already with all relevant Australian certifications etc.

      From what I've seen and heard the Chinese Gov is fairly lax on this sort of thing. Probably a bit of an uphill battle getting anything done about it. :)

    Hey Luke, has there been anymore announcements coming from apple with regards to ios6 turn by turn?

    Most places reported "coming in October" and were fast running out of days.

    Thanks!

      No announcement on maps.

      That was disappointing.

    HAPPY INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY

      CAPS LOCK: CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL, YO.

        HEY LUKE, HOW COME YOU REPLIED TO 'Esophagus' QUESTION BUT IGNORED 'Blake'..?

          Because I'm THE WORST GUY EVER. IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR?!

          ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!?!

            Yes Luke, you are simply awful..! Your entertainment value however, is limited and now I'm bored. :)

    Mentioned this in the relevant article, but it would be great if you guys could do a comparison of currently available phone mounts and give a recommendation given the new mobile phone laws in NSW. I'm sure it would be useful for QLD and VIC people as well!

      So i'm guessing that there are only three states in Australia.

        they are the states that i know have the law for it. it'd be less useful for everyone else i guess, but not irrelevant.

          What grinds my gears is how awful even the expensive kits are. Straight out of the 90's where just bolting something to your dash with exposed cords was the norm.

    Whats the go with the seemingly random moderation of comments? sometimes my comments appear immediately and other times i get the 'your message is awaiting moderation' message.
    Just curious is all.

      I found that specific words and things like exclamation marks will do this, I also found at one stage that every time I said Apple it would happen, must have been some anti fruit thing. But you are correct, sometimes there seems to be no logic to it at all.

      My guess, and it IS just a guess, is that you probably get those waiting for moderation notices when there is actually someone moderating.
      I can't imagine Giz would have someone checking every single comment.
      but, like I said. Just a guess as it had me thinking too.

      I suppose its for quality assurance to make sure everyone is being civil, i suppose that most comments are selected randomly to be moderated.

        My previous comment is awaiting moderation. Let's see if this does.

          Nope, that one's fine. Because I didn't use the word Gizmodo - This one will probably be delayed too lol

    Just came across this article from a couple of years back.
    Thought it might be interesting to some of the, shall we say, little bit greyer Gizmodians out there. ;)
    Keep in mind that this is dated 2010 too.

    Ok, so now that I'm seeing nokia adds all over my screen, can anyone tell me when windows phone 8 is being released??

    I'm going to grab a HP Envy 6-1113TX Sleekbook from Domayne today. It comes with a free Nokia Lumia 610 - I want the 920 but this will do for now, because I'm sick of not having a phone... Plus I can start developing for windows phone straight away.

      Domayne Warrawong gave me a lumia 800 instead. Freaking wonderful! I haven't even unboxed the laptop yet.
