Tibetan Luozang multilingual digital electronic pocket gadget - a product review
5 October 2009
"The handheld device features an impressive array of edutainment functions: 34 dictionaries (Tibetan, Chinese, T-C, C-T, T-C-English); PDA (Palm Digital Assistant) application; database of language, cultural and historical entries in Tibetan and Chinese; trilingual WordPad; MP3 player, with USB interface with personal computer; and games."
"The appeal of this Tibetan handheld gadget is its Tibetan-ness. There is truly a Tibetan keyboard, perhaps for the first time, and the default displays are in Tibetan. ...
The feeling is that you are holding a Tibetan gadget, a Tibetan hardware, a product of indigenous innovation of strong yet very subtle native aspirations."

Just days before the deadline to comply with China's order, the letter from 22 chambers of commerce and trade groups representing the world's major technology suppliers adds to pressure on Beijing to halt the plan following an official protest by Washington.
The order requires manufacturers to pre-install or supply "Green Dam Youth Escort" software with PCs made for sale in China beginning Wednesday.

Beijing Adds Curbs on Access to Internet
25 June 2009
In the past month, central government officials have cited a need to control pornography in ordering that filtering software be preinstalled on all new computers sold in China starting July 1.
They have also forced Google to disable a function that lets the search engine suggest terms and on Wednesday night even briefly blocked access nationwide to Google’s main search engine and other services like Gmail. Some users were still having problems accessing Google sites on Thursday night.
In addition, Chinese bloggers say they have detected evidence of a concerted effort to stain Google’s image. They say that someone in Beijing manipulated Google’s software to make it more likely to suggest a pornographic search term during a state television broadcast.
At the same time, the government seems to have stepped up harassment of human rights advocates.

How much are we involved in combating the China propaganda?
27 May 2009,
by Tashi Samphel
I wonder how many of us ever use the internet as a platform to raise awareness about the Tibetan cause.
Even our Tibetan government is not handling those issues. Sometime I wonder, does our government in exile have a specific strategy to resolve these kinds of issues?
Finally, I suggest to our younger generation and educated ones, to create their own blogs and write more and more on the Tibet issue, to keep our struggle alive forever.
