Iran Suspends Google's Email Service

tehcmn Re:Web 2.0 (436 comments)

I like how the Iranian gov't is running a national e-mail service but can't stump up for an SSL certificate. mail.ir = localhost.localdomain, apparently.

How Japan's Biggest BBS Keeps Things Simple

tehcmn Re:Japan just likes it 1.0 (265 comments)

The normal 2channel isn't built for phones. But there is a version for keitai at http://c.2ch.net/. Having accessed c.2ch (and posted) from a FOMA handset, it's much less painless as it is posting on an English-language textboard (4ch) from a similarly-specced UK NEC handset. The input system takes a lot of getting used to, but is more consistent and much quicker to write with than the finger-killing hackjob that is T9. BTW, I'm somewhat surprised nobody has come out with "wwwwwww" and "orz" in these comments yet.
