  1. Helpful British Hacker Proposes New Firewall to Block Everything on the Internet But Porn

    If you're among the legions of people who uses the Internet solely for viewing filth, this could actually be a time saver.

    As far as ways to fence off porn and non-porn content on the Internet, here's one that's at least novel. UK-based dork sicksad has heard his government's calls for a default porn filter, and he helpfully built one for them, creating a DIY-firewall that blocks any and all non-pornographic content on the Internet. That was the plan, right guys?

  2. British Prime Minister Announces UK Will Block Internet Porn by Default

    Don't worry, British perverts -- you'll be able to opt-in to have pictures of naked people transmitted directly to your computer. Whew!

    British Prime Minister David Cameron really, really does not like pornography. In fact, the PM is so against the idea of naked pictures being available to anyone with Internet access, he's willing to work to change the entire way the Internet works in Britain to make it harder to find X-rated material. In a press conference today, Cameron announced that his administration had reached agreements with the UK's four major ISPs to place pornography filters -- which will default to 'on' -- on all new subscriber accounts.

  3. Running the United Kingdom? There’s an App for That

    Being the head of any government isn't exactly an easy job. When it comes down to it, leaders have to make decisions based on the best information they have available to them at the time. If that data proves to be faulty or somehow outdated, they can get reamed for making the wrong call. Thank goodness there's apparently an app for that. David Cameron, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, has been using an app on his iPad to keep track of real-time data on stuff like housing and jobs.

  4. U.K. Government Considering Requiring License to View Porn Online

    U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron is considering enacting a policy that requires adults to opt-in to viewing porn online in the U.K., effectively creating a "porn license," if you will. Enacting the opt-in will, as you might've guessed, require ISPs to block porn by default.

  5. “Government Dashboard” iPad App Being Developed For British Prime Minister

    There seems to be no end of possibilities for Apple's iPad tablet: You can explore stonehenge, Orangutans can play with it, cats can slice fruit with it, and you can fake a grievous bodily injury with it. Now, you'll apparently be able to help run a government with one, too. At least, that's the plan for British Prime Minister David Cameron, who is having a specially made "government dashboard" app developed especially for him.

  8. UK Internet Providers Will Soon Require Users to Actively Choose Pornography Access

    Four major UK Internet Service Providers are to start blocking pornography as a part of David Cameron's attempts to crack down on pervasive and easily accessible adult content. When the plans take effect, new users of BT, Sky, TalkTalk, and Virgin will be presented with the option of parental controls which they will have to actively accept or decline. Prior to all this, the UK government approached Reg Baily, chief executive of the Christian charity group the Mothers' Union, about conducting a review concerning the "commercialisation and sexualisation of children," along side the Department of Education. The ISP pornography blocking iniative is thought to be only one of many upcoming policies that aim to make sexualized content increasingly difficult for children to be exposed to.

  9. British Government Ultimately Decides Not to Restrict Social Media

    Earlier this month, when the London riots were in full force, the Prime Minister David Cameron entertained the idea of restricting social media interactions because the networks were being used to organize attacks and perpetrate other illegal activities. Now, a few weeks later, the decision has been made to abandon those plans and leave social media networks untouched. After talks with representatives from Facebook, Twitter and RIM, it was announced that the government would "not seek any additional powers to close down social media networks."

  10. In Wake of Riots, UK Prime Minister Proposes Social Media Restrictions

    The recent riots around London shocked the world, and the media was quick to pick up reports that rioters were using social media platforms such as Twitter to stay one step ahead of police. According to the Guardian, UK Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that in response his government will seek a means to ban individuals using such services for nefarious means. Speaking to the House of Commons, Thinq_ quotes Cameron as saying:
    Everyone watching these horrific actions will be struck by how they were, organised via social media. [...] Free flow of information can be used for good. But it can also be used for ill. So we are working with the police, the intelligence services and industry to look at whether it would be right to stop people communicating via these websites and services when we know they are plotting violence, disorder and criminality.
    Cameron added that the Home Secretary Theresa May will be meetings with RIM, Facebook, and Twitter representatives to discuss the matter. Though this is the first announcement by Cameron, it comes after several arrests were already made for inciting violence via social media. The Guardian says that three people have been arrested in connection with their use of the BlackBerry Messenger service, and other arrests have stemmed from inciting violence through Facebook.
