While the everyday customer likely won't face a felony charge for swiping a $1 soda from McDonald's, woe betide the alleged thief who already has a slew
of petty thefts racked up. A Florida man could see five years in jail and $5,000 fine for filling his courtesy cup with soda instead of water.

NaplesNews.com
says the man was given a courtesy cup and told it was for water only at McDonald's. According to cops, he filled it with soda at the fountain and went
outside to drink it.

When the manager confronted him over the soda, the man declined to pay the roughly $1 for it, refused to leave the premises and cursed at the manager, states
the arrest report.

And just his bad luck — the man already had previous petty theft convictions, upping his charge to a felony. He's also in trouble for additional misdemeanor
accounts of trespassing and disorderly intoxication. As opposed to orderly intoxication, wherein we're guessing you'd happily pay for a soda and smile
at everyone you meet.

Sometimes you want to send a file, URL, text snippet, or image from your Mac to your iPhone (or vice versa). I generally use email for this purpose, but
Mac OS X Hints reader

found another method (via
MacDrifter):
Use Messages.

If you have the
Messages beta
installed on your Mac, click on the Compose button at the upper left of the Messages window. At the To prompt, start typing your own name, then select
your iMessage address from the list of suggestions. Then drag (or copy and paste) your file, URL, or text snippet into the text-entry field at the bottom
of the window. Whatever you’re sending will appear on the “sent” side of the message pane; it will almost immediately appear in the “received” side, too.
More importantly, it will almost immediately pop up on your iOS device as well.

French election regulations ban anyone from leaking predictions before polls closed at 8 p.m., resulting in fines up to $100,000. In response, French Twitter
users posted predictions and voting tallies using nicknames for the candidates to evade the attention of election officials appointed to monitor social
networking sites for violations. They also paid homage to their past by using the hashtag 
#RadioLondres,
a reference to codes broadcast from London’s BBC to resistance fighters in Nazi-occupied France during World War II, 
the AFP reports.
 “Tune in to #RadioLondres so as not to know the figures we don’t want to know before 8:00 pm,” the AFP reports of one ironic tweet.

Apple is offering current MobileMe users still running older versions of OS X a free upgrade to Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) in order to encourage them to migrate to iCloud. According to an e-mail seen by Macgasm that was sent to MobileMe users who have not yet migrated, those users can request a free Snow Leopard DVD, which will be sent in the mail for free.

Why a free update to Snow Leopard, which was superseded by Lion (10.7) last October? After all, to use iCloud on a Mac, you need Lion. But in order to upgrade to Lion, you need the Mac App Store, and to run the Mac App Store, you need Snow Leopard.

You've heard of the "Apple tax," right? It's the notion that Mac users pay a hefty premium for their hardware.
But I also think there's a "Mac OS tax," meaning Mac software tends to cost more than equivalent Windows software. And deals tend to be fewer and farther between.

The Forest City center will have a projected power usage effectiveness (PuE) measurement of 1.06 to 1.08, Facebook said in a post on its Web site. Research from The Uptime Institute shows that the typical data center has an average PuE of 1.8, which means that for every 1.8 watts in at the utility meter, only one watt is delivered out. The company's first data center, in Prineville, Ore., also ranks high on power efficiency.
