"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall — think of it, always." Mohandas Gandhi

"Pogo" o browser 3D da AT&T powered by Mozilla

A AT&T resolveu através da Vizible, empresa onde detém interesses e que se dedica ao desenvolvimento de "rendering 3d", criar um novo browser baseado no Mozilla.

Por agora parece que será só para m$--window$.

Resta saber se não será um meio mais lindinho para a At&T espiar para os seus verdadeiros "bosses", os senhores da NSA, como tem vindo a ser largamente divulgado.

AT&T - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 2006, the Electronic Frontier Foundation lodged a class action lawsuit, Hepting v. AT&T, which alleged that AT&T had allowed agents of the National Security Agency (NSA) to monitor phone and Internet communications of AT&T customers without warrants. If true, this would violate the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 and the First and Fourth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution. AT&T has yet to confirm or deny that monitoring by the NSA is occurring. In April 2006, a retired former AT&T technician, Mark Klein, lodged an affidavit supporting this allegation.[17][18] The Department of Justice has stated they will intervene in this lawsuit by means of State Secrets Privilege.[19] In May 2006, USA Today reported that all international and domestic calling records had been handed over to the National Security Agency by AT&T, Verizon, SBC, and BellSouth for the purpose of creating a massive calling database.[20] The portions of the new AT&T that had been part of SBC Communications before November 18, 2005 were not mentioned.

AT&T Is Working on Its Own 3D Browser (Pogo). What Are They Thinking?
I was just shown a demo for Pogo, a 3D browser based on Mozilla that is in private beta (we should be getting invites in a couple weeks). It is a project that comes out AT&T’s business development group and Vizible, a Toronto-based company whose 3-D rendering engine gives Pogo a very different look than other browsers. (AT&T is an investor in Vizible). “The concept is not to rebuild the browser,” says Vizible founder and CTO Anthony Gallo, “it is to extend it.” For the foreseeable future, Pogo will only be available for Windows machines.
