Aug 5th 2010 6:53AM As a person who has lived in Indonesia for a long time, I personally feel amused that this country just keeps on repeating this sort of groupie mindset whenever another country with predominantly moslem population puts a ban on something.
Let's just put it this way: I am pretty sure that almost all of the members of the House of Representative (an equivalent of Parliament in the UK or Congress in the US) are using BlackBerries. Even though BB's domination in the US is slowly waning, it is still very popular in Indonesia. Anybody who could afford it usually owns one or two. Otherwise there are always those knockoffs usually sold by a Taiwanese/Chinese brand.
Is it actually logical to ban BlackBerries in Indonesia; or is it just one of those sleighs of hand that is being forced upon a foreign company in order to build a localized RIM server, free of charge? Otherwise, you could always bribe someone in the upper echelon of power so that this issue would not be discussed again whenever the House assembles to discuss and pass regulations.

Uh, what a great idea. That person should have argued that the devil made him/her smoke while using the Mac.
Jan 17th 2009 12:27PM Looks more like that AI fighter jet from the movie, Stealth, rather than AvP.
Jan 9th 2009 12:49PM That keyboard gives me the feeling of deja vu from the old iBook keyboard mixed together with the thinness of MacBook Air and casing structure of the previous MacBook. I think I'll stick with the recently announced Sony Vaio P for my new gadget. I just can't see the aesthetic charm of Adamo.
Jan 9th 2009 12:30PM Huh, why would they use a UMPC processor (Z530) on a machine that is technically on the netbook class?
Jan 9th 2009 4:12AM Okay,
I'm ditching my plan to get a MacBook and I will get this one instead.
Jan 8th 2009 1:35PM How much cheaper can this handset be judging by the numbering scheme of Nokia?
Jan 8th 2009 1:57AM Uh, if somebody could read Japanese, how many different processor configurations could this thing actually be customized. I tried to use Google Translate and for some strange reason, it says that this P series will use the Z520/530/540 which are Atom for UMPC and also N270, probably depending on how you want to configure it. Is that correct?
Jan 7th 2009 9:31PM Oh, is Steve finally giving his Stevenotes? Ooops, this is the wrong conference. Let's hope this will be more interesting than the one that just blew yesterday. Maybe tech blog needs to start covering this Stevenotes instead of the other one.
