Apple Censors Dalai Lama IPhone Apps in China

,----[ Quote ]
| Apple appears to have blocked iPhone
| applications related to the Dalai Lama in
| its China App Store, making it the latest
| U.S. technology company to censor its
| services in China.
| Those apps, which appear in most countries'
| versions of the App Store, do not currently
| appear in the Chinese version. Another app
| related to Rebiya Kadeer, who like the Dalai
| Lama is an exiled minority leader reviled by
| China's authorities, is unavailable in the
| China App Store as well. The apparent
| censorship comes after carrier China Unicom
| launched iPhone sales two months ago, making
| regulatory approval of the phone's contents
| in the country necessary for the first time.


No internet sex please, we're Indian. Web firms observe new law

,----[ Quote ]
| It may have given the world the Kama Sutra and
| the Bollywood wet sari scene, but it appears
| that India is not yet ready to be exposed to
| the delicate subject of sex on the internet.


Apple Aggressively Pursues 'Pod' Trademarks

,----[ Quote ]
| "Apple's got a good point about such flagrant use of the syllable 'pod,'"
| commented Max Beta. "Why, just last week I was tricked into going into the
| office of someone who claimed to be some kind of 'doctor.' The guy didnât
| know anything about music or iPodsÂ, and he had some kind of weird foot
| fetish. You shouldn't be able to call yourself a podiatrist unless you are
| associated with Apple in some way!"
| Apple must file a response to Sector Labs by April 1, and then Sector Labs
| will have the opportunity to respond as well.
