+ - SPAM: HD DVD Death Watch Ended - Toshiba Calls It Quits

Submitted by

MojoKid writes "It looks as though the inevitable will indeed finally come to pass, with news coming across the wire from Toshiba this morning that they're finally bowing out of the high-def format battle,ending further development of HD DVD products and that factories were being closed. NHK online reported "The Blu-ray format now makes up 90 percent of the Japanese high-definition DVD market after winning last year's price war for DVD recorders and players." Walmart better be ready with extra greeters on hand, as a few folks stream in with returns, now that the holiday HD DVD blowout buzz is over like a bad hang-over, realizing their players eventually will be nothing more than standard DVD spinners or up-scalers at best."

OmNara writes "Yahoo! news reports about a teenager who unlocked his iPhone and traded it for a new car and 3 iphones. In addition he is offered a consulting job.
The teenage hacker who managed to unlock the iPhone so that it can be used with cellular networks other than AT&T will be trading his reworked gadget for a new car. The job took 500 hours, or about 8 hours a day since the iPhone's June 29 launch.
Hotz made the deal with Terry Daidone, co-founder of CertiCell, who also promised the teen a paid consulting job.

+ - German politicians want to stop Nazis on Youtube-> 1

Submitted by tmk
tmk (712144) writes "German politicians want to stop YouTube from publishing Nazi videos. Dieter Wiefelspütz of the social Democativc Party has requested an investigation against the Internet platform YouTube for circulation of right-wing extremist videos. "The publication of these films fulfils the condition for aiding and abetting demagoguery". Neonazi films may not be given a forum on the Internet. "It must be stopped. It is scandalous that something like this is possible in Germany", said Wiefelspütz. Conservative politicians support him: "If YouTube does not comply, eventually we'll have to block YouTube in Germany.", says Günter Krings of the Christian Democratic Union.

Since 2002 providers in Nordrhine-Westfalia are forced by the District Authorities to block access to two Nazi sites, which are hosted in United states. According to the TV magazine Report Mainz Google has not responded to German inquiries to delete 100 Nazi videos."
