Submission + - French deputies moving against Photoshoped ads (

This indication is to be mandatory on all ads, packaging images, political posters and even art photos, and is considered a matter of public health, aimed at fighting anorexia.

Submission + - Opera Mini 5 beats most other mobile browsers in s (

andylim writes: Today Opera launched Opera Mini 5 beta, the latest version of its very popular mobile browser. Unlike most mobile browsers, Opera Mini compresses pages on a server first, making loading times faster. To see exactly how fast Opera Mini 5 is though, timed it against the iPhone browser, a BlackBerry browser, a Nokia browser and an Android browser. The results are surprising, as Opera Mini beats most of the competition by a significant lead. It's only the iPhone's browser that seems to be able to match its speed.
