11/22/2005 Company To Offer Tracking By Phone untitled

It's 10 p.m. Do you know where your children are?

If you don't, your cell phone might be able to tell you. For a few years, wireless phone companies have had the technology to figure out the location of cell phone users.

In the U.S., though, wireless firms have yet to roll out location-based services that track the whereabouts of children. Privacy and potential liability issues have made wireless firms leery of such an offering -- until now.

11/14/2005 Cell Phones Adopt Ratings for Content

The cell phone industry is adopting a rating system for its multimedia services to designate which music, video and gaming products are intended for adults and provide tools for parents to block access to that content.

The ratings and parental tools would not, however, stop youths from using the wireless Internet connections on their mobile phones from accessing public Web sites that feature content and products involving sex, profanity and violence.

The two-tier rating system will categorize content offered directly by cell phone providers as either "Generally Accessible Carrier Content" or "Restricted Carrier Content."


11/14/2005 Industry Group Fights Cellular Pornography

Major U.S. mobile operators will identify and label adult content and equip their customers to block minors from accessing it, according to an industry pledge.

The Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association (CTIA), which includes all the major U.S. mobile operators, unveiled the voluntary pledge on Tuesday. In the first phase of the commitment, the companies will classify the content they deliver in at least two categories: Generally Accessible Carrier Content, to be available to all users, and Restricted Carrier Content, accessible only to users over 18 or with a parent or guardian's authorization. Only items provided by carriers would be covered; content provided by end users or accessed via the public Internet would not be classified under those rules, according to guidelines published by the CTIA.

11/10/2005 French youths turn to Web, cellphones to plan riots

France's government is policing cyberspace as well as rundown suburbs in the battle to end two weeks of rioting.

Young rioters are using blog messages to incite violence and cellphones to organize attacks in guerrilla-like tactics they have copied from anti-globalisation protesters, security experts say.

Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin has diverted resources to monitoring blogs -- short for Web logs -- in an effort to anticipate the movements of the protesters, who have set fire to thousands of cars since the unrest began on October 27.

11/03/2005 Sex, Drugs and SMS

China has declared war on scams using mobile phone short messages that promise everything from fake cash prizes to sexual services to contract killings.

Laws governing China's mobile phone market have fallen behind its explosive growth, which has generated huge profits for short message service providers.

The new campaign is an extension of a crackdown started last year on pornographic and subversive content and spam messages sent by mobile phones or through the Internet.

"Illegal short messages have become a major cause of damage to social order," Wu Heping, spokesman for the Ministry of Public Security, was quoted as saying by the Beijing News on Wednesday.

The system -- Digital Video Broadcast-Handheld -- is being tested in about 40 pilots worldwide and Nokia's Anssi Vanjoki said on Wednesday he expects networks to go live in the first half of 2006.

Motorola earlier this month sued Zafirovski, claiming his new job as CEO of Nortel Networks Corp. could risk disclosure of Motorola's trade secrets. The telecommunications-equipment maker, which is based in Brampton, Ontario, was not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.

11/01/2005 Candidates Reach Voters With Blogs, RSS, Text Messages

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's campaign is going mobile. The mayor's campaign Web site landed a spot on AOL's beta site AIM Today, where his smiling face appeared Monday morning next to the image of a cell phone and the words "Text Mike."

In addition to urging people to send messages to the mayor, the Web site offers campaign news alerts and RSS feed. Though the billionaire mayor paid for the advertisement, it warns users that they will have to pay their usual company fees for the "alerts."


11/01/2005 FCC okays telecom mergers with conditions

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Monday approved two giant telecommunications mergers with conditions that include holding some rates steady and offering "naked" DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) broadband service.

With the FCC approvals, Verizon Communications Inc.'s acquisition of rival MCI (Profile, Products, Articles) Inc. and SBC Communications Inc.'s purchase of AT&T Corp. are ready to go forward pending approval from a handful of states.
