The FCC approved net neutrality rules that are a half step forward from current legislation. The new rules would limit wired Internet providers from committing “unreasonable discrimination” against any Web traffic. Not surprisingly, wireless companies are still free to determine how you use your bandwidth. In other news, Microsoft is set to announce a new version of Windows aimed at low-power devices at this year’s CES. The pressure on Microsoft to challenge Apple and Google’s OS dominance on portable devices is spurring them to move beyond the cell phone. Microsoft will need a solid operating system and support from chip manufacturers Intel and ARM Holdings to put up a fight in the portable market. And finally, Apple has removed the controversial WikiLeaks application from the Mac App Store, citing it “violated our developer guidelines.” Apple claims the app could cause harm to a group or individual which is a direct violation of their terms. Will Apple be the next victim of Anonymous DoS attacks?
