The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business.

Delft University scientists 'teleport' information over three metres

DutchNews.nl, Friday 30 May 2014

(NOS/ANP)
Scientists at Delft University are claiming to have managed to ‘teleport’ information over a space of three metres, according to a report in scientific journal Science.

The researchers say computers were able to exchange information despite not being connected to each other in any way. In addition, information did not travel across the three metre space between them, broadcaster Nos reports on Friday.

In order to transport the information, the researchers used a phenomenon known as ‘entanglement’, which researcher Ronald Hanson describe as ‘possibly the weirdest and most intriguing consequence of the laws of quantum mechanics.’

The information which was transferred was stored on diamond quantum bits, which could eventually be used for developing quantum computers and quantum internet. The advantage of such a network is that information can be sent in total security and there is no way of eavesdropping.

The researchers plan to try to repeat the experiment this summer using a distance of 1,300 metres. However, Nos points out, the teleportation of objects such as people, remains impossible according to the laws of science.

"The Quantum Factor" – Apr 10, 2011 (Kryon channeled by Lee Carroll) (Subjects: Galaxies, Universe, Intelligent design, Benevolent design, Aliens, Nikola Tesla (Quantum energy), Inter-Planetary Travel, DNA, Genes, Stem Cells, Cells, Rejuvenation, Shift of Human, Consciousness, Spontaneous Remission, Religion, Dictators, Africa, China, Nuclear Power, Sustainable Development, Animals, Global Unity.. etc.) - (Text Version)

"..... The Only Sustainable Quantum Energy on the Planet

Let me take you to an experiment over a decade ago. Two men in Scotland were involved - a physicist and a medical doctor. The medical doctor is Dr. Todd Ovokaitys, my partner's colleague. What a coincidence these two men of science met in this lifetime [Kryon smile]. The physicist and the medical doctor were the first to co-develop a sustainable, coherent, controllable, repeatable, quantum event. That is to say, they have an invention that creates quantum energy that can be sustained, repeated, and used. They've done it by opposing laser energies out of phase through what we would call a quantum holographic lens arrangement. An actual shift of time occurs and that coherent quantum soup, although very small, is controllable and can be repeated, manipulated, and delivered where they want it to go.

Now, they're not the first Humans on the planet to create quantum energy. But they're the first ones to create one that is designed and repeatable. The first Human to create quantum energy was Nikola Tesla. He couldn't control it, but he knew it was there and had seen it over and over within his magnetic experiments.

What the physicist and the doctor did over the next decade showed the quantum factor, for they then applied this designed quantum soup that they had invented to biology. Every time they imbued this energy into a biological test or experiment, they got healing! Think of it. What are the odds that you would develop some kind of an energy on the planet and wherever you pointed it, it healed? What are the odds of that? It's like rolling six and then six and then six. Are you starting to see a pattern?

When this quantum energy is able to be reproduced in other laboratories, there will be those (and there always are) who will try to weaponize it. Here is something you should know: It will be the first energy every discovered that won't allow this. It can't be weaponized because it is benevolent. Imagine, a quantum energy that's just simply physics, but which has an attitude! What does that tell you? It should show you that there's something going on within high physics that is more than math and attributes of matter.

In time, the quantum factor will be discovered on this planet. When it is, it will be highly controversial, and it's going to fly in the face of logic and 3D and the way things work via the scientific method. The ramp-up to all this is difficult. The old souls in front of me have signed on to work this new energy and they've waded through lifetimes, just waiting for this. What would you do as a scientist if the experiments before you had "a mind of their own"? What would you think if magnetics, gravity and light could only be assembled in a certain way that created healing and never a destructive alignment? All this is going to redefine some of the basic forces in the Universe. Intelligent design is only the first, and even today many astronomers and physicists still think it's an anomaly. 

That will be the next largest discovery on the planet. It's been held back from you because it takes a higher vibrating consciousness to create and understand it. When any planet discovers a quantum energy and is able to use it, you could go to that planet and know that you will meet high-consciousness entities. This has never been given to you before that, for within the quantum factor contains the secret of interplanetary travel using large, entangled states. There are ways of doing things you never thought could happen. You can throw away your rocket ships. You're on the edge of that.. ..."

Apple Agrees to Buy Beats for $3 Billion in Biggest-Ever Deal

Jakarta Globe – Bloomberg, May 29, 2014

San Francisco. Apple agreed to buy Beats Electronics for $3 billion, its biggest-ever acquisition, nabbing a popular line of headphones and a nascent subscription music-streaming service as the iPhone maker seeks to rev up growth.

Beats founders Dr. Dre and music-industry executive Jimmy Iovine will join Apple, the companies said in a statement yesterday.

The purchase price is $2.6 billion, with $400 million more that will vest over time.

The acquisition is projected to close in the quarter that ends in September. The deal signifies that Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook is willing to use the company’s $150.6 billion in cash more aggressively, a departure from predecessor Steve Jobs’s playbook of acquiring smaller companies to bring in technology and talent.

As sales of digital music downloads fall, buying Beats gives Apple a foothold in Internet-based streaming, where Google YouTube, Spotify and Pandora Media dominate.

“Music is such an important part of all of our lives and holds a special place within our hearts at Apple,” Cook said in the statement. “That’s why we have kept investing in music and are bringing together these extraordinary teams so we can continue to create the most innovative music products and services in the world.”

Sales cooling

The deal indicates how the CEO, who is facing pressure to jump-start Apple’s revenue amid cooling iPhone and iPad sales, is shifting tack to acquire growth.

Even as Google and Facebook have spent billions on acquisitions, Apple previously avoided tie-ups of this size.

Its biggest past purchase was the $400 million deal for NeXT in 1997, which brought Jobs back to Apple.

Maynard Um, an analyst at Wells Fargo Securities LLC, wrote in a note yesterday that Apple should focus its deals on more growth-oriented businesses.

“While we believe Apple should get some benefit of the doubt because of its historical success, a music-related acquisition still seems, to us, more defensive,” wrote Um. “Given the changing landscape and our view that Apple will have to eventually evolve its business model, we believe Apple should be acquiring more offensive assets to better position itself.”

The deal had been anticipated, after news of Apple’s talks with Beats emerged earlier this month.

Apple made the official announcement yesterday a few hours before its head of iTunes, Eddy Cue, and Iovine were scheduled to speak at a technology conference.

Cue will oversee the Beats Music team for Apple, while marketing chief Phil Schiller will run the Beats headphones group.

Apple also will hold its annual developer conference next week in San Francisco, where it will unveil software updates. Beats Music A central part of the deal’s allure is the Beats Music service.

While the purchase uses just a fraction of the cash and investments on Apple’s balance sheet, it shows that the Cupertino, California-based company is serious about introducing its own music-subscription service.

Jobs had long resisted such a move, insisting that people don’t want to rent their music.

Apple took a step in that direction last year, introducing iTunes Radio, an advertising-supported music-streaming service that competes with Pandora.

While Apple’s iTunes remains the world’s largest seller of music, it only offers downloads of single tracks and albums. Music-streaming services, where a customer pays for access to the songs instead of owning them in a digital library, have gained in popularity, especially among younger listeners, said Mike McGuire, an analyst at Gartner.

Yet the services aren’t lucrative and present business challenges, even for Apple, he said.

“They haven’t moved to a subscription model, and there are a lot of good reasons they didn’t,” McGuire said. “The big one is there isn’t a lot of money to be made.”

Subscription service

Apple plans to keep Beats as a stand-alone music application that will run on devices based on Google’s Android software and Microsoft Windows operating system, as well as those made by Apple.

Not everyone is a fan of music-streaming services.

Musical acts including Radiohead have criticized subscription services because they don’t compensate artists as well as the pay-per- track model. For instance, the latest album from the band The Black Keys is available on iTunes, though not Spotify.

Satisfying service

Beats introduced its music-subscription service earlier this year.

Like Spotify and other rivals, the company offers unlimited access to millions of songs in exchange for a monthly fee. Beats hired music critics, radio DJs and record-label veterans to create playlists and other curation tools to help customers navigate the overwhelming amount of music available — a component Iovine said was missing from the experience.

“It needs feel. It needs culture,” Iovine said in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek in 2012. “What Apple has in the downloading world is very, very good. But subscription has an enormous hole in it, and it’s not satisfying right now.”

In buying Santa Monica, California-based Beats, Apple also would get the company’s colorful, high-end headphones.

Iovine and Dr. Dre, whose given name is Andre Young, started Beats in 2006 amid rising use of iPods and smartphones to listen to music on the go.

The pair quickly proved their marketing acumen. The headphones, priced at about $170 to $450, gained popularity as stylish accessories for the general public and not just audiophiles, fueled by partnerships with musicians, fashion designers and athletes like San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and NBA All-Star Lebron James, who helped pitch the products to a younger audience.

“They have done a hell of a job in branding,” McGuire said. Fashion Finds With Iovine and Dr. Dre, Cook continues to bring in people with fashion experience.

Former Burberry Group CEO Angela Ahrendts now runs the company’s retail operation, and former Yves Saint Laurent CEO Paul Deneve is working on “special projects” for Cook.

Apple and Beats have deep ties. Iovine, who is stepping down as an executive at Universal Music Group as part of the deal, was a friend of Jobs and an early music-industry advocate for Apple’s efforts with the iPod and iTunes.

“I’ve always known in my heart that Beats belonged with Apple,” Iovine said in the statement.

The acquisition is a boon for Iovine, who has worked on projects as varied as Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run” and the movie “8 Mile,” and Dr. Dre, whose seminal rap album “The Chronic” helped make rap music popular with suburban teenagers in the 1990s.

Universal Music was an investor in Beats, along with private equity firm Carlyle Group.

Google reveals driverless car prototype

First of 100 test vehicles is unveiled with no steering wheel or pedals, two seats and a top speed of 25mph

Google has demonstrated its own driverless car, a design that does away with all conventional controls including the steering wheel, and says it will build 100 of the vehicles for testing with the eventual aim of "bringing this technology to the world safely".

The company had for several years been testing everyday cars equipped with sensors, navigation equipment and computers to drive themselves but in the meantime it has secretly developed a prototype from scratch that will have no facility for a human to take control, other than an emergency stop button.

An initial 100 testbed versions would retain manual controls, Google said as it unveiled the car on Tuesday. The controls are needed to comply with the law in California which along with Nevada and Florida allows autonomous vehicles but only if a driver can take charge.


Chris Urmson, director of Google's self-driving car project, said the aim was to run extended tests in California where Google is based. Urmson argued driverless cars would improve road safety, calling the development "an important step toward improving road safety and transforming mobility for millions of people".

Google said its testing had suggested it was safer to remove conventional controls altogether because the results of a human having to take over safely and suddenly were unpredictable and potentially dangerous. “We saw stuff that made us a little nervous,” Urmson told the New York Times.

The toy-like concept vehicle has two seats, a screen displaying the route and a top speed of 25mph (40km/h). An array of sensors allows the vehicle's computer to determine its location and surroundings and it can "see" several hundred metres, according to Google.

China Said to Push Banks to Remove IBM Servers for Security

The Chinese government is pushing domestic banks to remove high-end servers made by International Business Machines and replace them with a local brand, according to people familiar with the matter, in an escalation of the dispute with the US over spying claims.

Government agencies, including the People’s Bank of China and the Ministry of Finance, are reviewing whether Chinese commercial banks’ reliance on IBM servers compromises the country’s financial security, said the four people, who asked not to be identified because the review hasn’t been made public.

The review fits a broader pattern of retaliation after American prosecutors indicted five Chinese military officers for allegedly hacking into the computers of US companies and stealing secrets. Last week, China’s government said it will vet technology companies operating in the country, while the Financial Times reported May 25 that China ordered state-owned companies to cut ties with US consulting firms.

Harriet Ip, a Singapore-based spokeswoman for IBM, referred questions to IBM in the US Jeffrey Cross, a Somers, New York-based spokesman, didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment outside US business hours.

“Security trumps everything,” said Duncan Clark, chairman of BDA China Ltd., a Beijing-based consultant to technology companies. “China doesn’t need the US companies in the way it did for the last few decades.”

The results of the government review will be submitted to a working group on Internet security led by President Xi Jinping, two of the people said.

Spokesmen for Bank of China, China Construction Bank and Industrial & Commercial Bank of China declined to comment. Three phone calls to Agricultural Bank of China’s Beijing press office weren’t returned.

US technology sales in China have come under increasing threat following Edward Snowden’s revelations last June of a National Security Agency spying program. Forrester Research Inc. estimates purchases of information-technology products in China will rise 11 percent this year to $125 billion, meaning other US technology companies including Microsoft face threats to their business.

Microsoft said this month it was “surprised” to learn that China Central Government Procurement Center has excluded its Windows 8 operating system from a government purchase of energy-efficient computers. The nation’s official Xinhua News Agency called it “a move to ensure computer security.” China is the world’s largest market for personal computers.

“China’s government is in a strong position given Snowden’s disclosures,” Clark said. “If you give them an excuse, they will aggressively promote domestic brands.”

The directive would be a further blow to IBM’s business in China, where sales fell 20 percent in the first quarter. In an April conference call, Chief Financial Officer Martin Schroeter said the challenges were cyclical, “and we still see good opportunity over the long term” in China.

IBM announced in January it would sell its low-end server computer business to Beijing-based Lenovo for $2.3 billion. That transaction faces regulatory scrutiny including a US national security review. Angela Lee, a Hong Kong-based spokeswoman for Lenovo, said she couldn’t immediately comment about the report.

In addition to concern about Armonk, New York-based IBM’s equipment as a security threat, China’s government also believes IBM servers are more expensive in China than in other regions, the people said.

China Postal Savings Bank is using servers made by Jinan-based Inspur as part of a trial program that began in March 2013, the people said. The government plans to expand that trial to other banks, they said.

The group’s Inspur International unit gained 10 percent to HK$1.53 at 2:57 p.m. in Hong Kong trading today. In Shenzhen, Inspur Electronic Information Industry Co. rose 4.7 percent.

Other agencies involved in the review include the National Development and Reform Commission, the China Banking Regulatory Commission, and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the people said. The NDRC, the Finance Ministry, the central bank and the CBRC didn’t immediately respond to faxed requests for comment.

The US indictment, announced May 19, led China to suspend its involvement in a cybersecurity working group and drew formal protests from the ministries of defense and foreign affairs. The State Internet Information Office likened the US actions to “a thief yelling ‘Catch the thief.’”

Internet expands freedom of speech in China: Xinhua

A government report on China's human rights said Monday that internet has "dramatically" expanded the space of freedom of speech.

Chinese netizens post and forward 250 million microblog messages and over 20 billion WeChat and other instant messages every day, said the report on China's human rights in 2013, issued by the State Council Information Office.

Internet has become one of the most important channels for the public to express its opinion, the report said.

"Chinese people enjoy extensive freedom of speech," the report said. "Within the range allowed by the Constitution and other laws, the public can discuss political issues freely."

The public can express opinions through internet forums, blogs, personal webpages, social networks, online literature, online videos and other Internet platforms, according to the report.

The report quoted the statistics from seven websites including Sina and Tencent as saying that, among the 20 topics that received the most attention online in 2013, the top 12 received over 2 million posts each, and the top one over 45 million posts.

Chinese netizens discussed a wide range of topics, including lawsuits, people's livelihood, individual rights and interests protection, doctor-patient disputes, and corruption, the report said.

By the end of 2013, the number of netizens in China reached 618 million and Internet coverage rate 45.8 percent, according to the report.

The country now has about 120 million Internet forum or bulletin board system (BBS) users, 437 million blog and personal webpage users and 278 million social network users.

Effective realization of freedom of speech ensures that the public oversee the government, the report said.

Many local government websites in China have mailboxes to receive letters from the public, while the central discipline inspection agency, Supreme People's Court and Supreme People's Procuratorate have opened tip-off websites.

When Propaganda Fails, Humanity Awakens…The Fall of Mainstream Media

The Dollar Vigilante, Jeff Berwick, May 18, 2014


It doesn't happen often, but The New York Times (NYT) has truthfully reported on something recently.

On what did it report? Well, on itself, and how alarmed it is due to its own increasing irrelevance in the face of new sources of information.

NYT is well-aware of the "New Media," as a 96-page internal report, sent to top executives last month, makes clear. Obtained by Buzzfeed, the report "paints a dark picture of a newsroom struggling more dramatically than is immediately visible to adjust to the digital world, a newsroom that is hampered primarily by its own storied culture."

The report ignores its traditional mainstream (MSM) competitors and takes a closer look at new digital companies like First Look Media, Vox, Huffington Post, Business Insider and Buzzfeed.

“They are ahead of us in building impressive support systems for digital journalists, and that gap will grow unless we quickly improve our capabilities,” the report states. “Meanwhile, our journalism advantage is shrinking as more of these upstarts expand their newsrooms.”

“We are not moving with enough urgency,” it says.

A central issue for NYT is “a cadre of editors who remain unfamiliar with the web.”

“Many desks lack editors who even know how to evaluate digital work,” the report continues.

A few suggestions NYT is looking into is a TED talks-style event series and an expanded op-ed platform, including location-based local news and information.

But it is too late...

STATING THE OBVIOUS

At the very least, thank you, NYT, for stating the truth even though it was an internal document not meant for the public.. And, even if it was already painfully obvious. Still it took bravery for such a dinosaur to admit its own obsolescence. 

The paper's model is obsolete, but even worse than the model has been the paper's lack of interest in the truth. As the US empire has grown more out of control, more dangerous, and more insane, the NYT has functioned as a fourth branch of government, a gatekeeper for a totalitarian world a la 1984 or Brave New World. But the gig is up. The world knows NYT's complicity in erecting a sick and deranged world, and unless the paper breaks major news stories and outs itself as an undeniable friend of freedom, it will continue to lose revenue. No more can NYT expect to serve the elite and its bottom line at the same time.  In the age of the internet, what David Rockefeller was once grateful for is no longer possible:

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years...It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries."

Mainstream media is definitely dying, and this is a VERY good thing. The root of the word government combine as "to control minds."  The root of the word "govern" is control and the root of "ment" is mind.  Without control over minds via the media, the government will lose all control. More young people now get their news from the internet than television. In mere years most everybody will get their news from the internet because nobody will trust the mainstream:

 

This data shows that it is really only those over 65 years old who are still completely brainwashed.  Not all, of course.  But many or most.  The good news is they will be dying soon along with their interest in voting.

Newsweek (which I call Newspeak) has released its last print issue. You'll remember one of Newsweek's last attempts to be relevant again was uncovering the wrong Satoshi Nakamoto as the creator of bitcoin. They found some guy with the right name in the phone book...You know, "quality journalism"...

Clearly the only valuable part of MSM media sites is in the comments section which debunks 90% of the articles published. Popular Science was so overwhelmed by people bringing facts into many of their articles that the site shut off its comments section.

CNN's viewership is at a record-low (the network recently laid off 40 journalists), while CNBC has suffered a viewership collapse as well... and this with the Dow at all time inflated highs.  Imagine if the stock market were going down how low these numbers would be. 


But once Larry King said that CNN would be better off showing re-runs of Spongebob Squarepants 24 hours a day, you knew it was over...


Larry King left CNN because he knew it would collapse. He left CNN for the Russian government propaganda channel, RT, because it is more respected and features more truth about the West. Twenty years ago, this would be have been unheard of for Larry King! A career-ender! Not today...Nope. Today it is a respect-earner. Oh, how things have changed...

THE NEW MEDIA TAKEOVER

The New Media has taken over. Alex Jones is almost a household name and groups like Luke Rudkowski's We Are Change have revolutionized how people get information. (Editor's Note: We Are Change offers "Change Media University" to learn how to become a real investigative journalist that we highly recommend.  Forget traditional school).For years now the most popular MSM personalities, like Glenn Beck, have followed the playbook of new media personalities in a bid to remain relevant. Now, in order to remain relevant people like Glenn Beck need to quote or interview people in the "alternative media".



It was not all that long ago that John Kerry and Zbigniew Brzezinski said that the internet, simply put, is making it hard for them to govern. Secretary of Statism, John Kerry, before a group of State Department workers told the audience that the world has been "complicated" by "... this little thing called the internet and the ability of people everywhere to communicate instantaneously and to have more information coming at them in one day than most people can process in months or a year."

According to Kerry, the internet "makes it much harder to govern, makes it much harder to organize people, much harder to find the common interest."

Z-Big echoed his sentiment, saying that public access to information stopped war with Syria.

Bill Clinton, laughingly even suggested the need for a "Ministry of Truth" over the internet, run by the US federal government, that would censor anything it did not deem to be "truth".

In 5-10 years people will look at you funny if you tell them you watch mainstream media. Why? Because there is no real information nor substance on mainstream media.

“…  Government

Let us speak of government. We're not speaking of your government, but of any government - the way it works, how it survives, how it has survived, the way it campaigns, and how it elects leaders. It's going to change.

Years ago, I told you, "When everybody can talk to everybody, there can be no secrets." Up to this point on this planet, government has counted on one thing - that the people can't easily talk to each other on a global scale. They have to get their information through government or official channels. Even mass media isn't always free enough, for it reports that which the government reports. Even a free society tends to bias itself according to the bias of the times. However, when you can have Human Beings talking to each other all at once, all over the planet without government control, it all changes, for there is open revelation of truth.

Democracy itself will change and you're going to see it soon. The hold-outs, the few countries I have mentioned in the past, are doomed unless they recalibrate. They're doomed to be the same as they have been and won't be able to exist as they are now with everyone changing around them.

I mentioned North Korea in the past. Give it time. Right now, the young man is under the control of his father's advisors. But when they're gone, you will see something different, should he survive. Don't judge him yet, for he is being controlled.

In government, if you're entire voting base has the ability to talk to itself without restriction and comes up with opinions by itself without restriction, it behooves a politician to be aware and listen to them. This will change what politicians will do. It will change the way things work in government. Don't be surprised when some day a whole nation can vote all at once in a very unusual way. Gone will be the old systems where you used to count on horseback riders to report in from faraway places. Some of you know what I am talking about. Government will change. The systems around you, both dark and light, will change. You're going to start seeing something else, too, so let's change the subject and turn the page. ”

Chinese blogger ‘fired’ after John Kerry meeting

A Chinese blogger who called on US Secretary of State John Kerry to push for Internet freedom in China has been fired by his employer, he told AFP on Sunday.

Journalist Zhang Jialong was one of four bloggers who met with Kerry in February, where he urged the United States to help “tear down the great Internet firewall”.

Beijing tightly censors the Internet, banning websites including Facebook and Twitter with a system labelled the “Great Firewall of China”, and ordering domestic Internet firms to delete content that government officials deem “sensitive”.

Zhang’s employer Tencent dismissed him on Friday for “leaking business secrets and other confidential and sensitive information”, he said, calling it a reprisal for his meeting with Kerry.

Zhang said that authorities at Tencent, one of China’s best known Internet firms, told him his dismissal was prompted by the meeting, and his posting online of censorship orders issued by China’s government.

Directives published by Zhang included an instruction for websites to delete a video by a Taiwanese singer because it briefly showed “a man on an ambulance wearing a Free Tibet scarf”.

“Tencent told me they reached the decision after consulting with the government, so it’s a political decision,” Zhang said, adding that “the situation for online freedom in China is getting worse”.

Tencent’s Beijing office could not immediately be reached for comment on Sunday.

China has more than 600 million Internet users, the largest online population in the world.

Its ruling party has long been engaged in a “cat and mouse” game with Internet users, tightening restrictions in periodic crackdowns before new forums emerge to challenge restraints.

The rising popularity of microblogs in recent years has triggered a government-backed campaign to assert greater control over social media.

China’s Supreme Court last year said Internet users could face three years in jail if “slanderous” information spread online was viewed more than 5,000 times or forwarded more than 500 times.

Hundreds have been detained under the regulation, according to rights groups.

Microsoft's golden era in China coming to an end

Want China Times, Staff Reporter 2014-05-24

Chinese authorities announced on May 16 that Windows 8 will be banned from government computers.

Microsoft will not only lose government purchase orders, but will also lose the central enterprise purchases and OEM market–the three major revenue sources for Microsoft in China, according to Guangzhou-based 21st Century Business Herald.

This means that Microsoft's golden era in the Chinese market is coming to an end, the paper said.

In the context of China's accession to the World Trade Organization in 2001, Microsoft began changing its strategy in China, making conciliatory moves where it had previously been confrontational. Such a strategy eventually won the support of the government, collaborative partners, as well as customers.

Microsoft took over government procurement, the central enterprises and the OEM market in China one by one.

China has become Microsoft's most important regional market in the world, but now, it has to say goodbye to all of it.

Independent IT analyst Sun Yongjie stated that the Central Government Procurement Center refused to purchase Windows 8 for three reasons.

Firstly, the user experience for Windows 8 was not good.

Secondly, due to trade friction between China and the United States, in which government procurement has been a major bargaining chip for China.

The third reason is that the Central Government Procurement Center hopes Microsoft will lower the price of Windows 8, as complaints about the high price have not only come from average customers, but also from OEM manufacturers, as well as government and trade buyers.

Product experience has always been a problem with Windows 8. Microsoft announced on April 8 that it would stop technical support for Windows XP despite the fact that it still accounts for 25.4% of the world PC market, and more than half of the Chinese market.

Innovation is lacking in Windows 8 and Windows 7, and users are not keen on upgrading their operating system, according to the paper.

Sun also said that the government has other choices if it does not want to buy Windows 8, such as using Windows7 or XP, especially because the latter is considered one of the Microsoft's best operating systems.

The newspaper stated that Microsoft's dilemma has to do with its inability to adapt to user habits.

In the past, the PC was an office product, but nowadays given the additional applications of the internet, such as videos and games, tablet and smartphones are more suitable to customers' needs. The tablet and smartphone market are dominated by Android and iOS, however, and Microsoft has tried to combine the experience of a traditional PC and tablet in its Windows 8, but this has not gone down well with customers, the paper said.

Vimeo Refuses to Self-Censor After Indonesia Ban

Jakarta. Vimeo will not change its policies or censor any content in response to Indonesia’s decision to ban the popular video sharing site.

“We cannot — and do not believe that it is possible to — guarantee that any particular type of content will never be published on Vimeo, whether on a worldwide or country-specific basis,” Vimeo general counsel Michael Cheah wrote in a letter, sent on Wednesday and obtained by the Jakarta Globe on Thursday, to Indonesian director general of informatics applications Heru Tjahjono.

The site has been blocked in the world’s fourth largest country since Communications Minister Tifatul Sembiring on May 12 tweeted from his personal account that the site had violated anti-pornography regulations. But Internet service providers have rolled out the ban haphazardly: Some put it in place while others did not.

Tifatul said the site was banned for hosting pornographic content.

“Vimeo does allow videos that depict nudity and human sexuality in certain [non-pornographic] contexts, such as where depictions might serve an artistic or narrative goal,” Cheah wrote. “Vimeo is not, however, a porn site. We have never permitted pornography.”

The high-definition pioneer has long been a favorite among independent artists, filmmakers and musicians. Some 26 million users have registered with the site, which receives 170 million views per month.

Critics have called the ban a grave threat to free expression, especially at a time of burgeoning success for independent films made in Indonesia.

“There is no place in a democracy for banning the tools that we use for the free exchange of ideas and information, whether Vimeo or other social media,” Joshua Oppenheimer, director of acclaimed documentary “The Act of Killing,” told the Jakarta Globe.

The Ministry of Communications and Information said last Friday that it was open to revoking the ban if the website were able to address the government’s concerns.

“It’s not permanent,” acting ministry spokesman Ismail Cawidu told the state-run Antara News Agency. “We’re only waiting to see a minimum effort to remove the pornographic content.”

The ministry blocked YouTube briefly in 2008, until the site agreed to censor certain videos. But Vimeo, according to the letter, was unwilling to come to a similar accommodation, leaving its future in Indonesia uncertain.

“Vimeo allows people from around the world to share their creative videos,” Cheah wrote. “The ban harms Indonesian creators and users by depriving them of a venue to share and view creative works. We urge the ministry to reconsider its ban of Vimeo.”

Young Iranians arrested for 'vulgar' Pharrell Williams' Happy dance

Six Iranians, some of whom were filmed without veils, forced to apologise to state for 'vulgar clip which hurt public chastity' 

The Telegraph, Josie Ensor, and Ahmad Vahdat, 21 May 2014


Six young Iranians have been arrested and forced to apologise after posting a home-made version of US singer Pharrell Williams’s hit song Happy on the internet.

The clip shows three men and three unveiled women singing and dancing to the tune in the streets and on rooftops in Tehran, the capital.

The Islamic Republic took exception to the video, which was posted on Youtube and received nearly a quarter of a million views, accusing the group of producing a “vulgar clip which hurt public chastity”.

Hossein Sajedinia, Tehran's police chief, said: “Following a series of intelligence and police operations and after coordinating with the judiciary, all the suspects were identified and arrested.

“After a vulgar clip which hurt public chastity was released in cyberspace, police decided to identify those involved in making that clip.”

One of the women who took part in the video, entitled Happy: We are From Tehran, said the girls had covered their hair with wigs in an attempt to conform to the codes.

Under Islamic law, in force in Iran since the 1979 revolution, women must cover themselves from head to toe.

More than a decade ago a “morality police” unit was formed to verify that women scrupulously respect the dress code in public.

She said the purpose of the video, which was posted online in April, was to “tell the world” that young people are “joyful and want to make the situation better. They know how to have fun, like the rest of the world.”

However, the group were each made to “confess to their criminal acts” on state television.

The brother of one of the women criticised the decision to arrest his sister Reyahane.

Siavash Taravati, who lives in the US, told the Telegraph. “The IRIB’s (Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting) action in showing the “confession” of my sister and her friends (...) is just outrageous.

“Apparently they first arrest people without any charge or civil right to defend themselves, then interrogate them and then make them confess and finally broadcast their show.”

Mr Taravati critised the tactics used by the police squad that arrested his sister. "We understand the security forces arrest Reyhane when she was at home and alone," he said. "The arrested people are being held at Vozara detention centre but as to which force is holding and interrogating them no one has any clue."

More than a decade ago a “morality police” unit was formed to verify that women scrupulously respect the dress code in public.

The internet is also heavily filtered in Iran, with the authorities blocking access to popular social networking sites.

Civil liberties and women’s rights have returned to the forefront since President Hassan Rohani’s election last June.

A moderate, he had campaigned for greater cultural and social freedoms in the Islamic republic, specifically urging police tolerance over the veil.

In a speech over the weekend, Mr Rouhani argued that Iran should embrace the Internet rather than view it as a threat.

But Conservatives regularly denounce what they see as laxity on the part of the authorities on women covering up or on behaviour deemed offensive to Islam.

Pharrell Williams responded to Iran’s decision on his Twitter account, saying: “It’s beyond sad these kids were arrested for trying to spread happiness.”


One of the dancers updated her Instagram profile to say she had been released
