How about owning multiple computers, without attaching them all to the internet? If I download a MacOS update from my PC, burn a CD, walk it over to the Mac in the room, and install the update, I haven't violated any conceivable service terms. It's nothing short of hubris (on the part of both Microsoft and the ISPs) to assume that nobody ever uses a computer for more than web surfing. They then ride this ludicrous assumption into the insane conclusion that every computer in the world is either attached to the internet or is out of service. -- David
