Submission + - Google Phone on Verizon Wireless Network 1

bowl_of_petunias writes: Google and Verizon had a joint press conference today. http://money.cnn.com/2009/10/06/technology/verizon_google/index.htm
From the CNN Money article: "The companies said they plan to develop "several" Android-based devices that will be pre-loaded with "innovative applications" designed by Google, Verizon and third parties." and "The companies said Verizon (VZ, Fortune 500) will introduce Android-based handsets within the next few weeks." Not a huge surprise after all of the rumors, but still nice to hear confirmation. Will this give ATT haters the phone of their dreams?

Submission + - Details on Worldwide Surveillance and Filtering (net-security.org)

An anonymous reader writes: Help Net Security is running an interview with Rafal Rohozinski, a founder and principal investigator of the OpenNet Initiative which investigates, exposes and analyzes Internet filtering and surveillance practices all over the world. Rafal provides insight on the process of assessing the state of surveillance and filtering in a particular country and discusses differences related to these issues in several regions, touching especially the United States and Europe. In the US, censorship is more difficult to implement if for no other reason than the court systems offer greater protections for freedom of speech. However, in both places surveillance is on the rise particularly as law-enforcement agencies become more adept to working in the cyber domain.
