Submission + - Official Google Voice Blocked From iPhone Store

LanMan04 writes: Apple has rejected the Google's Voice application for the iPhone saying that it duplicated features in the popular smart phone. In other words, Google Voice — one of the best things to happen to telephony services in a very long time — will have no presence at all on the App Store. The move has called into question the control that Apple exerts over approving applications and whether the rejection and others constitute anti-competitive behavior.

Submission + - Moblin 2.0 Released, Intel's Linux for Netbooks (

eldavojohn writes: Yesterday Moblin, the joint OS project between Novell and Intel, was released as V2.0 Beta for netbooks with the image available for download. We've talked about Moblin before but Computer World has an article speculating this is Intel's direct affront to Microsoft's Windows 7 by pointing out that Moblin is designed to optimally use Intel's Atom Processor and smaller screens so popular with Netbooks. Windows 7's netbook competition doesn't stop there as GoodOS's gOS3 Gadgets and Canonical's Ubuntu Netbook Remix are being designed to also take advantage of Intel's Atom, especially from a UI perspective. Back in April, Intel said it would support Windows 7 on the Atom later this year and Intel also says Windows 7 is a good choice for Intel's netbooks so it doesn't look like they're intentionally burning any bridges between them and Redmond.

It took more than a half dozen men to haul it out of the woods and load it onto a truck. This is why it's best to pick a smaller instrument if you're going to run a bard. Almost every bard plays a lute for a reason. Police said they've notified other police departments in the area to see if anyone has reported a missing piano.
