So a guy puts together a 15 minute film on the Qur'an, keeps the content under wraps, buys hosting space and then is told by the hosting company that it will not host his site due to its "objectionable material". Precisely how is the hosting company to know what objectionable content is in the film? It hasn't been released yet! Craven dhimmitude.
In contrast the film's producer, Dutch MP Geert Wilders, has indicated he would take to The Dam and hand out DVDs himself. Despite the many death threats against him.
Wilders: P2P/BitTorrent dude. Then let's see them take it down.
Update:Dutch Protestant Churches join the ranks of craven dhimmitude. Rather than defend the freedoms which the church espoused and on which it grew strong, it rails against them like a child spoilt by a doting mother.
The iPhone is scheduled for release in Austraila sometime this year.
That is a loose reporting from News.com.au. There is nothing "scheduled" about the iPhone's Australian release. As I have noted in a previous post, it would be reasonable to assume a late 2008 release date for the iPhone given that a 3G version of the gadget is likely to be produced sometime mid year.
According to this report, the iPhone's bundling to one carrier may breach Australia's competition laws:
If Apple...lock the iPhone to a single network in Australia it could fall foul of the Trade Practices Act provision dealing with third-line forcing.
This could cause delays in the iPhone's Australian release. Similar legal issues were encountered by Apple in Europe where the iPhone is now available on any network in France after initially being tied to one provider. I've seen so many of these gadgets (imported from the U.S.) walking about in Australia that its painful.
