    WIKIPEDIA STILL WORKS! If you need the info just run a normal search on google just make sure that once you click on the wiki link you have to press the stop button in the adress bar within 2 seconds.

    I wish Microsoft would wave its power around once in a blue fucking moon.

    If they had a press conference and stated "Microsoft will leave the united states, and no longer supply/warrenty/or offer aid to any computers in the united states, if SOPA passes"

    The gov't cant acquire that many mac's from Apple fast enough to sustain itself. Essentially, the military, and most Dept's of the government would tell congress to either burn the bill, or burn alive, their choice.

    I'd imagine Google could get the job done, or at least fire up enough people to get the bill killed (at least I hope so!)

    I think google didn't shut down because of their ongoing anti-trust lawsuit. Blacking out wouldn't help them. Also it might have caused a new bill to be started about websites that are "To big to fail" giving the government control as to when and if they can ever shutdown.
