Wired reports on Wireless, W3C in Amsterdam
13:11, 18 May 2000 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

Wired News reports from WWW9 in Amsterdam on conflicts and tension between the W3C and the WAP Forum.

Though the article spends lots of time wondering how these "highly technical academics ever birthed something so fun and easy to use", its core examines the impact of the WAP Forum on the W3C, without much concern for the carefully-worded joint statements and work done in common by the two organizations.

After comparing the WAP Forum's impatience to Microsoft and Netscape, the article quotes Murray Maloney as saying (on a WAP panel):

"Where is Netscape today?" boomed one indignant W3C member, Murray Maloney, at a WAP panel Wednesday morning. "Itís a part of AOL, and it doesnít have that kind of control anymore.... The people who are working on WAP need to get with the program."

Update: Dave Sims has another report on the panel at O'Reilly Network.

Phentermine (Jenny - 23:35, 18 Apr 2004)

Do you still say the same thing now?! Regards Jenny BTW, can anyone please / does anyone want to help me fight illegal online pharmacies? A short while ago, the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) ruled that online pharmacies that provide so called "online doctor consultations / prescriptions" were illegal. I did not know, and ordered some medications from I now know why they are illegal (the owner I believe is an Iraqi Bath Party fund raiser, and they took my money only to fail to ship my medications, they said the physician declined me, and then it took a whole week to get my money back, they say it takes my bank that long to show refunds - I do not believe them!). Anyway, they sell all manner of drugs which I believe they should not, for example (check this out) <a href="">Diet Pills</a> - I mean, what happens if a 12 year old girl with some desire to become a waif model and using her mom's credit card orders these pills? Because the doctor does not see the patient, I am sure it happens. What amazes me further that many of the slimming pills they sell are controlled drugs! For example, <a href="">Phentermine</a>; AKA <a href="">Adipex</a>; and <a href="">Ionamin</a>;. Also other classified appetite suppressants such as <a href="">Meridia</a>;, <a href="">Bontril</a>; and <a href="">Tenuate</a>;! But the worst of these obesity medications is <a href="">Didrex</a>;, which I understand is a class 4 drug!!!! OK, one of their weight loss pills <a href="">Xenical</a>; is a fat blocker, not an appetite suppressant. But just imagine it getting into the hands of someone with anorexic tendencies! But they do not just sell diet pills, oh no! They also sell things like <a href="">Viagra</a>; male impotence pills from Pfizer. I saw a report the other day linking Viagra to making men unable to have babies (or contribute to having babies). So I think a real doctor with the patient in front of them needs to prescribe such drugs, and only a real doctor! I mean, I heard that drugs like <a href="">Zyban</a>; smoking cessation tablets and <a href="">Propecia</a>; male pattern baldness pills have several nasty side effects. And <a href="">Ultram</a>; pain relief capsules can be very dangerous in the wrong hands. Also, what women in her right mind would want to order <a href="">Ortho Tri-Cyclen Birth Control Pills</a> from a medical web site?! Even the skin creams they sell maybe harmful. I mean, you know how much pressure on teenagers there are these days. How many of them would love to get their hands on some <a href="">Retin-A acne remover</a>, <a href="">Vaniqa facial hair remover</a> and / or <a href="">Renova skin wrinkle remover</a>? Do you see what I mean, it is wrong yes? Pease help me stop this illegal RX meds site and file a complaint against them with the DEA!
