Facebook Removes “Third Palestinian Intifada” Page

Facebook has shut down a fanpage titled “Third Palestinian Intifada,” which called for Palestinians to take up arms against Israel. Specifically, it attempted to inspire Palestinians to begin an uprising on May 15, and before its removal the page had over 350,000 fans. Facebook at first seemed hesitant to shut the page down, and cited their support of freedom of expression.

The page began as a call for peaceful protest, however after the page gained publicity the comments became increasingly violent. Facebook’s content regulations prohibits material that directs “hateful or violent content directed at an individual or group.” After it’s removal, several pages have been created, however none have obtained the momentum of the original.

Apple iPad2 Will Be Revealed On March 2

Apple is poised to announce the new iPad2 on March 2.

The current expectation is that the iPad 2 will be thinner than its predecessor and have enhanced display screens, as well as front-facing camera and Facetime video chat support. Some reports suggest it will be powered by one of Qualcomm’s multimode chips and will run on both GSM and CDMA-based networks around the world. The new iPad2 will be lighter and equipped with a number of features.

AT&T Foundry Centers To Help Mobile App Developers

To all of you mobile developers out there with a great idea and who need access to enterprise-level labs and test centers, AT&T has the space for you. Today the first of three AT&T Foundry Innovation Centers was unveiled in Plano, Texas at the facilities of its partner Alcatel-Lucent, the host-sponsor of the center. A Palo Alto, California center, will open in May, partnering with Ericsson, followed by the the third to open in Tel Aviv, Israel in September, host-sponsored by Amdocs.

AT&T is comparing their idea acceptance process to speed-dating, with developers or teams allowed 15 minutes to present their ideas to a panel of AT&T executives, somewhat similar to what you might see on ABC’s Shark Tank. Execs heard 170 pitches in 2010 and expect to hear 400 this year. Those accepted can either work autonomously via a web portal, use call-in telephone collaboration and support, or have full on-site access to the super high-speed LTE-based networks, labs, and test centers.
