The Register:

networks who partner with Apple must install Apple gear at the data centre to support its services – specifically, the Push Notification service that wakes up the Jesus Phone. Forget the revenues from sales of extra server gear – the key point is that Apple now sits in the middle of the data stream, capturing the customer’s data. The analyst outfit describes the iPhone as a potential “poison” for the networks.

Mia invites in the devil

Financial Times:

Mia Farrow, the actress and activist, has asked Blackwater, the US private security company active in Iraq, for help in Darfur after becoming frustrated by the stalled deployment of a United Nations peacekeeping force.

Ms Farrow said she had approached Erik Prince, founder and owner of Blackwater, to discuss whether a military role was either feasible or desirable.

“The people in the camps would say ‘we don’t care whether it’s Blackwater, any-water, as long as they help us’,” she told the Financial Times.

No, no, no, no, no!
First off, asking mercenaries if a military role is ‘feasable or desirable’ is going to come up with one answer. Yes. Because they will find a reason.
And secondly, Blackwater? Has Mia seen Blackwaters CV? How many Dafurians(?) is Mia willing to sacrifice?

Britain became the world’s largest arms exporter last year, according to government figures released yesterday, overtaking the US which normally occupies the top slot.

The UK won £10bn of new defence orders in 2007 from overseas, giving it a 33 per cent share of the world export market…

At last, we’re in the top slot for something other than teenage pregnancies and heart attacks.

The Americans aren’t gonna like it, because doesn’t 33 per cent market share constitue a monopoly…?

Ooops, nearly forgot the hat-tip to Liberal Conspiracy

Bal Thackeray:

The threat of Islamic terror in India is rising. It is time to counter the same with Hindu terror. Hindu suicide squads should be readied to ensure existence of Hindu society and to protect the nation.

Bal Thackeray is an Indian politician, and the Indian congress has, rightly so, condemned his statement.

What the hell would a recruitment poster look like for a government run Suicide Squad?

What’s a ‘permanent base’?

June 18th, 2008 § 0 comments § permalink

NY Times Blog:

“The whole debate about permanent bases is meaningless,” said John Pike, the director of Global Security, a Web site that collects information on defense and intelligence issues. “There is no such thing as a permanent base.”
For example, Mr. Pike said, the United States military is currently vacating “temporary” facilities in the center of Seoul, South Korea, for more secure and modern barracks to the south of the city. Those temporary facilities, built after the Korean War, are more than 50 years old
