It's time to end government-funded iPhone apps (and curb Apple's control-freak tendencies)

| Now we've got Apple's Developer License 
| Agreement with terms so controlling that 
| developers must seek prior approval from 
| Apple before even commenting on the license 
| itself. We only know this because the 
| Electronic Frontier Foundation snared a 
| copy from NASA via a Freedom of Information 
| Act request (view PDF on the EFF site. 
| Apparently, federal law still trumps 
| Apple's corporate attempts at secrecy. At 
| least for now. 


Obamaâs $79 Billion Tech Plan May Favor Web Programs (Update1)

| Microsoft, Google and Amazon.com Inc. are 
| all offering more databases and programs 
| online, allowing customers to curb storage 
| costs. Sharing software and data that way 
| would shrink U.S. storage needs, helping to 
| cut expenses after previous governments 
| spent more than $500 billion on data 
| centers and other technology initiatives in 
| the past decade, Kundra said.

Obama Reiterates Support For Finishing ACTA

,----[ Quote ]
| President Obama Thursday reiterated his
| administration's commitment to enacting the
| Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, aimed

| the European Parliament this week calling
| for greater transparency in the deal's

Obama: We Must Move Forward On ACTA

,----[ Quote ]
| What was telling, however, was how he
| described ACTA -- which is that he used the
| bogus arguments for what people think ACTA
| is about, rather than what's actually in
| the agreement. It's a political trick:
|     "There's nothing wrong with other
|     people using our technologies, we
|     welcome it -- we just want to make sure
|     that it's licensed, and that American
|     businesses are getting paid
|     appropriately," Obama said. "That's why
|     [the Office of the U.S. Trade
|     Representative] is using the full
|     arsenal of tools available to crack
|     down on practices that blatantly harm
|     our businesses, and that includes
|     negotiating proper protections and
|     enforcing our existing agreements, and
|     moving forward on new agreements,
|     including the proposed Anti-
|     Counterfeiting Trade Agreement."
