Blackberry ban will happen (from the TV newscast) starting in October 2010.



DUBAI, United Arab Emirates—Governments in the Middle East may be considering banning the immensely popular BlackBerry smartphone, on the grounds that the device undermines national security.

A statement voicing concerns about the device was issued by the United Arab Emirates telecoms regulator on Sunday, prompting fears from the country’s half million BlackBerry users over an eventual ban.

The UAE follows Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and India in voicing protest over the device manufacturer, Research in Motion (RIM), and its refusal to disclose e-mail data of its customers.

Wow ... what do you think of this? And how will it impact the rest of the world, considering everyone's fear of terrorism, and the concern of Big Brother, and lack of privacy ...

Huge issue ....

Allah forbid someone working as slave labor in Dubai somehow gets ahold of one of those and tells the world about his plight before the government can censor him!

"Listen, do you hear them drawing near,
In their search for the sinners?
Feeding on the power of our fear,
And the evil within us.
Incarnation of Satan's creation of all that we dread,
When the demons arrive,
Those alive would be better off dead!"
