Actually, T-Mobile is testing this for those of us with Nokia phones that support IPv6, and they're using NAT64 to give access to IPv4 content.

See http://groups.google.com/group/tmoipv6beta

I'm currently using this on my Nokia N900, and it works for most things - the IPv6 support on the N900 is a bit of a hack, and some protocols embed IPv4 addresses (MSN IMs I think).

+ - What is the Who's Who of Security Certification?

Submitted by lunarpaladin
lunarpaladin (869647) writes "Okay, so I'm a junior admin (MCSA, Security+, CSA) that has finally come to find what he wants to specialize in. Security. I love reading about different security practices, methods, and technologies. My problem is that when it comes to actual certification, there is an overwhelming amount of certs, courses, books, and the like out there for this area of study. Where does one even begin? I'm totally lost. Is there a recommended or suggested certification/study path for one who wants to become a specialist in this area? What have you guys done to get to where you are now?"

Previously, Universal signed a two year and then a single year extension, but now has opted to decline a new two year deal opting to go month-to-month — potentially allowing Universal to sign new deals with other online vendors, or none at all. Universal is the largest music company and produces one out of every three albums sold in the US."

+ - UK charme offensive to extend copyright protection

Submitted by
benesch
benesch writes "An ageing UK star lineup tries to charm parliament into exending copyright protection of their songs: "Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Cliff Richard are among the artists who will see the current 50-year limit on their early sound recordings expire soon. The House of Commons culture committee said people had a "moral right" to keep control of their creations while alive. The copyright term for sound recordings should be extended to at least 70 years, the committee recommended. That would allow ageing performers to continue to benefit from their early recordings throughout their lifetimes.""
