Banned in Beijing!

One of my friends from high school, Betty C Tang, is currently in Beijing. She mentioned that she can’t see my website and that it was possibly blocked in China. This, of course, has two very important consequences. One: any potential Mach Dice buyers in China won’t be able to get support for their product. Two: I can talk all I want about my friend Betty and she’ll have no idea because she can’t see this site!

Betty was the artistic one in high school. She drew a lot and she was really good. Soon after graduation, she landed a gig working as an animator on The Simpsons. We were all terribly impressed. Now she’s a supervising animator at a company in Beijing …

… where she can’t see my blog! What’s up with that? I mean, it’s not like I’m writing “Boobies, boobies, boobies!” everywhere or talking about Tianamen Square. I think they might just block all WordPress websites or something. Anyways, censorship is bad.

(Boobies, boobies, boobies!)

(Hmm … that could be an interesting iPhone app…)

    Someone beat you to it, Mach, my man. Someone from Japan, I think (shocking, I know). I read somewhere that Apple had banned an accelerometer-input breast-bouncing simulator called “iBoobs.”

    Ah, here you go:

    Heh… Somehow, I’m unsurprised neither by the fact that someone came up with the idea nor the fact that it was banned. It looks like it was developed by a company in the Netherlands, but I would also not be surprised by something like that coming out of Japan. Ah, my motherland…
