    Hello everyone,

    I need to write a research paper and choose an important issue (preferably related to the world of technology and computers) with controversy surrounding it. I would have to be able to find a variety of credible sources (explaining the issue, range of opinions, etc.) to support my paper.

    I would really like to write about the topic that is not all about personal preferences (like Yahoo vs Gmal) but allows structured and unprejudiced arguments backed up with convinsing evidence (sources).

    Any ideas anyone?

    Well I suppose the controversy would be whether their domination over the user and their monopoly vs. other OS-s is positive or negative?

    You could do your report on microsofts domination of the market and the controversy of them "stealing" their programs and other things on their opperating systems. Sources would probably be related to the past trials and any current trials.

    Well you can talk about Big Companies trying to Monopolise the Computer and Software industry.

    also you could talk about if the internet should be a different Country...

    I got no links for this but I will give you a brief introduction of it

    Well as you know the internet if a global computer database. This database has to follow the RULE OF ONE COUNTRY and that country is the United States. If they feel threaten by your actions in the internet they can take you down and your site so fast you wouldn't even have the chance of Microwaving your evidence. People have made millions over online casinos that were hosted in Iran or middle east countries but when those person did there 1040 they were acuse of not placeing the millions they made in another country. The thing is that if you were in that country and made the money there you could easily bring the money with out paying taxes. I could continue but this is your research paper.

    You could also consider writing about peer to peer downloading, and it's effect on the entertainment industry.
