Syrian internet access mostly restored, for now

Syrian internet access mostly restored, for now

History has a means of duplicating itself, and the chaos in Syria is showing no exception– though potentially for the better. Following a communications blackout that started Thursday, reports have appeared from Renesys, the AP, the BBC and the Syrian Observatory for Person Rights that net and phone gain access to has actually returned to throughout major swaths of the country as of Sunday. President al-Assad’s workplace and rebels implicate each other of severing the links, although the US State Division doesn’t see there being much debate: it believes the near-simultaneous cut was an effort by Assad to disrupt opposition that has been using the internet as one of its correlating devices. It’s tough to know if links will continue to be intact when fights inside the country are as fierce as ever. While there’s some convenience to be had in understanding that modern technologies like satellite web gain access to are available if the lines go dark once again, we simply wish that peace concerns the nation rather.

Restored Polaroid SX70s, With Designer Accents – For A Price


An original Polaroid SX70 camera would be a dream for many an analog photography lover. But not only are they difficult to find in good condidion, they’re also maddeningly expensive when they show up. Today is no exception, but they’re rare enough that to find 50 restored cameras ready for sale is an event worth shouting from the rooftops.

These SX70s have been restored by The Impossible Project, which if you have been following along for the last few years, has taken it upon themselves to manufacture Polaroid film cartridges and fix up some of the old cameras. They show up in small batches on Impossible’s site and others, but quickly sell out. And starting on December 5th there will be 50 available for purchase at boutique design site colette (caution: autoplaying music).

They have a funky skin on them, which isn’t bad but at the same time isn’t as cool as the original, and they come with a dotty matching cartridge of PX680 Color First Flush film. The price? A mere €540 including VAT.

Okay, so that’s basically extortion. But eventually all collector’s items become subject to that kind of questionable pricing. If you’re not in a hurry you can wait until the next batch appears and try to get it for a couple bills less (Photojojo had some for $ 350 a while back and they turn up now and then).

Don’t forget that you’re also buying into a camera system where you’ll be paying $ 20-30 for 8 exposures. As much as I’d like to get back into Polaroid, it’s just too rich for my blood right now (and the Lomo instant cameras are fun too).

He reiterated, however, that his company is “working tirelessly” to restore services and, perhaps more important, consumer trust. Skip past the break to see the full video for yourself.

Update: RIM is holding a conference call now and Mike just said “we have restored full services.” So, go ahead, spend a few minutes and get that BBM backlog out of your system. You deserve it.

Skype well on the road to recovery, group video calls restored

We almost got to see what Christmas was like before Skype, and it wasn’t pleasant. Of course, VOIP and videoconferencing will never replace Grandma Pat’s pizzelles, but the technology sure does make pre-holiday planning a lot easier. For its part, Skype hasn’t gone into too much detail regarding the nature of its most recent outage (something about “mega-supernodes”), although as of this writing group video calling appears to be back and CEO Tony Bates has announced that customers will be compensated for the interruption of service with free and pay-as-you-go customers receiving credit for a free 30-minute SkypeOut call to landlines, while paid subscribers will get a free week of service. Keep an eye out on the Skype Blog for further updates, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed that this year we won’t have to learn what New Year’s Eve is like without Chatroulette. As for Skype itself, with the way they’ve been courting enterprise customers they’ll just be happy if this doesn’t do too much damage to their impending IPO.
