China Blocks 'Egypt' On Twitter-Like Site

trendzetter Bullshit (140 comments)

China is not censoring the events in Egypt. If this word is blocked on one site it is certainly not representative for the media at large. It's all over the news on all news outlets in China. And no, this will not give the Chinese people idea's. In general the Chinese population is supportive of there government.

Threat of Cyberwar Is Over-Hyped

trendzetter Re:Does targetted malware count? (123 comments)

It has never been proven that Iranian uranium-enrichment centrifuges where damaged by Stuxnet. The Iranians deny it. I wouldn't rely on the NYT for information about such topics. It might well be a propaganda spin.

trendzetter Re:Yeah..right (433 comments)

There is little effort needed to prove the Globovision boss is a conspirator. He actively participated in the 2004 coup and his own declarations suggest he would not hesitate to do it again.

If the GUI changes aren't controversial enough the fact that it is based on Mono will probably kill it.
