Peter Sunde Wants To Create Alternative To ICANN
It'll fail like the buy sealand bit if they manage it the same way. Why duplicate efforts?
Try Out Chrome OS In a Virtual Machine
Torrent and Info:
Because making an account on some shady website that's exploiting the situation seems wrong.
Comcast's New Throttling Plan Uses Trigger Conditions, Not Silent Blocking
Burden of proof. These vast claims need hard data to back them up. You can't just assume they're a natural monopoly.
Apple Rejects Nine Inch Nails iPhone App
WTF is that shitty summary.
"If Nine Inch Nails is having problems with censorship and approval what kind of problems are you having with the iPhone app approval process?" That's the entrance fee to the walled garden of the App Store for iphone/ipod. You trying to subvert apple is just another punch in the face. So they care more about the bigger/popular apps and how they fit their rules. That's kind of their job.
It's not free stop expecting it to be.

Bug as feature.

China Wants UN To Help Trace Sources On Internet
1. As usual, some non-American is getting on a high horse despite my post clearly stating its my local view. The US is part of the whole world and in the absense of Happy Unity Total World Government, everyone can feel free to post their local interpretation. No, the UN is not a world government. And most member nations are NOT democracies. And as afraid to complain as the citizens of some countries are (see article for a place called 'China'), Americans are happy to complain loudly enough to make up the difference.
2. Each branch interprets its role according to the rules its own way. One branch complaining another branch is not following the rules needs the third to mediate, not automatic condemnation, regardless of what the news anchors and comedy show hosts may imply.
Score: -2 Stupid American.
