record. The most famous problem is probably the VCR.

3. FCC Delays Cutoff of Internet Phone Users
------------------------------------------------------------

A deadline has been extended that could have left tens of thousands of

Communications Commission said Friday it would delay today's deadline
for providers of Internet-based phone calls to obtain acknowledgments
that their customers understand the problems they may encounter when
dialing 911 in an emergency.

4. Study Touts Coffee's Benefits
------------------------------------------------------------

When the Ink Spots sang "I love the java jive and it loves me" in 1940,
they could not have known how right they were. Coffee not only helps
clear the mind and perk up the energy, it also provides more healthful
antioxidants than any other food or beverage in the American diet,
according to a study released yesterday.

NASA's earliest space suits. The family of pioneering astronaut Gus
Grissom has been trying to get NASA to give them his 1961 Mercury space
suit.

7. Legal Experts Weigh In on Domain Arbitration
------------------------------------------------------------

It has kept domain disputes involving huge companies and small
profiteers known as "cybersquatters," as well as other Internet address
disputes, out of court, but is the domain arbitration that is mandatory
for Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) domain
registrants fair?
