Submission + - iPhone SDK "Pwned" (wired.com) 3

I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes: "The iPhone SDK has reportedly been pwned by the team that brought you AnySim. The new 'Pwnage' utility uses flaws in low-level iPhone functions to run unsigned code. Once the phone has been pwned by the utility, though, you can simply install custom .ipsw files via iTunes. Downloads should be available soon."

State Lawmaker Wants To Ban Anonymous Posting Online 471

bfwebster writes "According to a local news article from last week, Kentucky state lawmaker Tim Couch wants to ban anonymous posting on the internet in order to 'cut down on online bullying', which he says has been 'a particular problem in eastern Kentucky.' His bill would require posters to register with their real names and e-mail addresses under threat of fines. Looks like another battle in the right for anonymous free speech."
