Facebook oh Facebook, why betray us like that?

Who´ve read my last post and who´s following the news, knows already about what Facebook is up to these days, and I must admit, that I´m a little disappointed but not nearly surprised. Big Brothers New Clothes As Froma Harrop so wonderfully wrote, big Brother had quite a fashion update: T-shirts, sweats, boyish grin, curly … Continue reading

With 2012 just started, do we have 1984 ahead of us?

These letters are indeed a marking system, explains Rebecca Marston Business reporter at the BBC. This rating system is supposed to inform … Continue reading

You better check your phone for bugs!

Last Wednesday I wrote about the news restriction in China. During my entire research I thought: “Thank god we don’t have to deal with that kind of stuff. News restriction is not possible in our western world.” But then I came across the “News of the World” scandal, that, how a BBC article from august … Continue reading

Internet Freedom in China? You´re kiddin´ right?

But when I started researching possible topics, I came across several, very interesting New York Times articles that all had one topic in common: “media and news restriction in China”. Reading those, I realized how happy we … Continue reading
