Submission + - Google Reveals What Governments Asked It To Remove (sfgate.com)

Lord_of_the_nerf writes: Google has released all government content removal and user info requests in its transparency report (released on Sunday). It's interesting to note that the largest number of info requests have come from the US. Also interesting is what wasn't taken down, despite these requests. On a lighter note, some of the more amusing ones include a request from the Passport Canada office a 'YouTube video of a Canadian citizen urinating on his passport and flushing it down the toilet'.

Submission + - Foxconn workers forced to sign 'no suicide' pledge (dailymail.co.uk)

Lord_of_the_nerf writes: The Centre for Research on Multinational Companies and Students & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehaviour (Sacom) found that workers in Foxconn factories (producing iPads and iPhones) were forced to sign pledges that they would not commit suicide and also limit the amount their families could claim. Apparently suicide is so common that netting has been placed around the buildings around the worker housing.
