Submission + - The VZW Samsung Galaxy S4 Delayed Due to Imposed Branding

noc007 writes: Images of VZW's version of the SGS4 have leaked. According to the source, the reason for the lack of pre-order or release date is due to VZW requiring Samsung to make the home button larger to host a larger Verizon logo. In addition to having to fondle the logo each time you want to do something, their "4G LTE" logo will be tiled on the back of the phone so there's no mistake on which carrier is taking the owner's money.

Submission + - ICANN wont pull domain

noc007 writes: "The Register is reports the "Internet governance organisation ICANN has said it does not have the authority to suspend the website of The Spamhaus Project." "ICANN's stance of declining authority on the affair passes the onus onto Tucows, the registrar. Since Tucows is based in Canada, and not the US, it's in a much better position to decline to apply the court's request. So the threat of the loss of Spamhaus's domain appears to have receded, at least for now."

ICANN has posted an announcement with additional detain on the matter."
