Down the street in the alley
Her name was sally
She never saw it

In new york miami beach
Heavy metal fell in cuba
Angola saudi arabia
On xmas eve said norad
A soviet sputnik hit africa
India venezuela (in texas
Its falling fast peru too
It keeps coming
And now Im mad about space junk
Im all burned out about space junk
Oooh walk & talk about space junk
It smashed my babys head
And now my sallys dead

But while the project homepage reads that shipping would start at the end of april, we didn't see anything move at all. If I hadn't seen one for real at FOSDEM, I would have put this in the hoax-category. What's going on at OpenMoko? I still want one!"

+ - France bans citizens from reporting violence

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes: InfoWorld has reported that the French Constitutional Council has approved a law that prohibits anyone other than "professional journalists" from photographing, filming and/or broadcasting acts of violence. Activists are concerned that bloggers and website operators could also be targeted for prosecution if they post violent content... The article describes how the timing is unfortunate since it comes exactly 16 years after the filming of the Rodney King beating by Los Angeles police. Will professional journalists in France be required to seek a license from the government? Just who is a "professional journalist"?

The decision doesn't have to be logical; it was unanimous.
