Swedish regulator forbids the string “bank” in .se domain names… regulatory overstep http://stupid.domain.name/node/812
why just “bank”, why not funds, or insurance-related strings? #PTS needs to explain itself!
if you have a store called RayBan Kings you can’t have “raybankings.se”. Lunacy, as @jimh says :) #PTS #fail
I wish identi.ca all luck, but it’s not enough to build a better mousetrap, you need the mice (=audience). Twitter appeal=everyone’s on it

no-one would have heard about the Aftonbladet piece if the Israeli gvnmt hadn’t flipped out #aftonbladet #israel

I would be very surprised – nay, flabbergasted – if Apple approves the #Spotify iPhone app
apple’s Swedish iPhone ads are grating, I guess they’re the same the world over. Who loves that twee and twinkly music?
