Porn in the United Kingdom to become opt-in (Download Squad)

Dec 20th 2010 9:38AM Sebastien, you're getting your arms up over nothing. This has been widely mis-reported and a tech site should do it's research better:
http://www.metro.co.uk/news/850896-new-porn-controls-for-children-on-internet-planned-by-government

From the article: "He hopes to introduce a system that would enable parents to ask internet service providers (ISPs) to block adult sites at source, rather than relying on parental controls that they need to set themselves. Adults using the internet connection would then have to specifically 'opt in' if they want to view pornography."

Basically, by default, ISPs won't filter anything. Adults can CHOOSE to block porn websites directly at the ISP level (instead of say, installing filters at home which are easily overcome and too technical for most people). If an adult CHOOSES to block the websites, they then have to opt-in to view them.

El Shaddai preview: Confusing my religion (Joystiq)

Sep 19th 2010 10:37PM @JCDoe just because you know does not make it common knowledge. There isn't one common 'society' online (or for that matter, offline), and there are people from different cultures, societies and religions all living and interacting with one another. What one considers 'obvious' and 'common knowledge' may not be as obvious or common to others; for example, I doubt many people wrote a paper on the Book of Enoch in college so that they'd have an intimate knowledge of the matter.

For example, I know a lot about Klaus Fuchs. Not many people do.

Adobe plays the porn card against Apple and the iPad (Download Squad)

Jan 30th 2010 1:35PM octoberasian: you're surprised that performance goes down and your 6mbit connection stutters when you have multiple youtube *videos* open? Of course it will. Videos require decoding. And downloading.

Sebastien: Adobe re-wrote the ActionScript Virtual Machine in Flash Player 9 when ActionScript 3 came out.

While I agree that Flash Player is slow in OS X, and it needs to be more efficient, let's not kid ourselves by that that's the reason why Flash Player isn't supported in iPhone and iPad. Apple can easily have a toggle button in preferences that enables/disables Flash content, or disables Flash content by default unless you click on the blue lego to load it. No, Apple's not letting Flash into the iPhone OS because they want total control of what you can do on their hardware.
