The group has not published the details of their unlocking procedure because they plan to sell the service beginning next week.
The event comes almost two full months after the iPhone's widely-publicized release by Apple and AT&T. And, like most cell phones sold through carriers in the US, the iPhone comes from the store locked to AT&T. Given the fact that Apple has a five-year exclusive contract with AT&T in the US, such restrictions have led to much angst over the fairness of locking a phone to a carrier—especially since the iPhone's purchase price is not subsidized by AT&T.

Both a trial judge and the provincial Appeal Court agreed the law did indeed infringe individual liberties – but they said the infringement was justified in the interests of public safety.
The Liberals had opposed the law but have not suggested an amendment or repeal since it formed the government in 2003.
0% said jail time under 1 year
9% said jail time over 1 year
50% said a lifetime NFL ban
41% said house arrest with that mad dog Britney Spears
Interesting how jail time was not popular. The last selection is interesting. Was that considered worse than jail time and an lifetime ban from football?

The new born cub weighs just 100 grams (3.5 ounces) and measuring 10 cm (3.9 inches).
As if fixing parking tickets wasn't enough, a Toronto public housing official has been fired over allegations that staff accepted money from tenants for larger apartments. Tenants at 190 Woolner Ave., in the Jane St. and St. Clair Ave. W. area, say rumours about bribes and queue-jumping in their 17-storey building have been swirling for months, fuelled in part by the dismissal of a housing administrator earlier this summer.
The City of Toronto isn't the only employer with staff problems: another senior executive at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp has handed in their resignation letter.

More than 40,000 DVDs and DVD-copying equipment were seized Sunday when police conducted 22 search warrants at flea markets, homes and businesses. Many of those arrested were working booths at two flea markets, one on Mavis Rd. in Mississauga, and the other at Dundas St. W. and Hwy 427.
With these businesses now shut down, I recommend that their clients try to the Pacific Mall in Scarborough. Or maybe catch The Simpson's Movie in the theatre.

In the video below you can see how he has an exchange of words with another man who throws water at Rob who returns fire with a couple of punches to the head. Security quickly takes the guy away. Rob is no pushover.
Overall, the province's two major parties remains in a dead heat. Each has gained one per cent support since the last Ipsos Reid poll in June. Liberal support is at 40%, while the opposition Conservatives garner 37% support. New Democrat support is stagnant at 17%.
The current numbers put the Liberals in minority territory. However, the Liberal strength in the Greater Toronto Area may make the difference in the fall election. The GTA is home to 44 out of the 103 seats in the Legislature. Since June, support for the Liberals in the GTA moved up six points, to 44% from 38%.
An 84-year-old Shelton, N.Y., man said he is still driving the first car he ever owned - a 1929 Ford Model A with more than 200,000 miles on it.
Clarence Cleveland Curtiss said he was 15 in 1938 when he bought the car, which sold for $400 when new, from a Derby man for $10. It was during the Depression.
Curtiss said the only change he ever made to the car was installing a Hudson Terraplane engine in 1940. The engine raised his top speed from 55 mph to 80 mph.
The unusual name stands out especially in Chinese, which has no alphabet and instead uses tens of thousands of multi-stroke characters to represent words.
Earlier this year the government announced a ban on names using Arabic numerals, foreign languages and symbols that do not belong to Chinese minority languages.
They don’t seem to have thought this through. Apart from whatever other problems it could cause, how on earth is he ever going to get a personalized e-mail address, since @@.yahoo.com probably isn’t going to make it?

The woman had been given the camel as a 60th birthday present earlier this year because of her love of exotic pets. The camel was just 10 months old but already weighed 152kg (336lbs) and had come close to suffocating the family’s pet goat on a number of occasions.
On Saturday, the woman may have apparently became the object of the male camel’s desire. It knocked her to the ground, lay on top of her and displayed what the police delicately described as possible mating behaviour.
"After consulting with his family over the weekend, Michael Vick asked that I announce today that he has reached an agreement with federal prosecutors regarding the charges pending against him.
"Mr. Vick has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to those charges and to accept full responsibility for his actions and the mistakes he has made. Michael wishes to apologize again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter."
Actually he dropped it when the bank's dye pack exploded. Police found them outside the bank in a pile of dye-stained money.
He suggested Rosie O'Donnell would be welcome on the show. Her response was not in "this lifetime or beyond." The New York Post now reports that Trump has been talking with Britney Spears about appearing on Celebrity Apprentice, and that Paris Hilton has expressed an interest . He's also planning to call Lindsay Lohan this week to see if she'd be willing to try to salvage her plummeting career on the show. It's not beneath Trump to exploit others for rating numbers. The man is a whore.
So far he has lined up for his show: Jim Cramer, Carmen Electra, Joan Rivers, Naomi Judd, George Foreman, original "Apprentice" villain Amorosa, Kimora Lee Simmons, Pete Rose, Dana Patrick, Tony Hawk and Jeff Gordon. Not exactly "A" listers. Britney would certainly change that.
