+ - Oracle Billionaire Buys Hawaii->

Submitted by sleiper
sleiper (1772326) writes "The sixth largest Hawaiian Island of Lanai is to be bought by Oracle Corp. CEO Larry Ellison.
Larry already owned a large portion of the island which he will increase to 98% of the 141^2 miles of island and gain 3200 subjects.

The island of Lanai hosts 2 holiday resorts, 50 miles of coastline and a rugged interior.

No definite figure on the cost, but one of neighboring island Maui's newspapers had previously valued the sale at between $500 million and $600 million.

+ - British Ban Spikes Pirate Bay Traffic->

Submitted by sleiper
sleiper (1772326) writes "Today sees UK ISPs begin to block access for their subscribers to the Pirate Bay URL. Sky, Talk Talk, Virgin Media and O2 have already blocked access and the UK's biggest provider, BT, are currently reviewing their legal position.

This access ban however has seen The Pirate Bay's traffic spike to 12million more page views than their previous daily record.

It seems obvious that a message is being sent, that this type of censorship is not the way forward. The Pirate Bay keeps on sailing""
