Why We Won't Release an iPhone/iPad App =[
When we released the Android app we certainly wanted the Apple iOS application to be next but there are many reasons we will not be offering the application - and none of these have anything to do with any legal issues or moral issues against Apple. 1 - The iOS Developer Program annual fee is $99 and for a free app that we wont profit from, then this is out of the question and unfair for...

ChillingEffects.org are currently drafting an explanation, they have the complete reports and warrants...

We are currently attempting to appeal this decision, but we don’t know how...

We covered the story regarding a man in Castle Hill, Sydney (where our office HQ is) who was shot by police whilst travelling to report a colleague at the police station. 60 days later, it would seem that a media blackout occurred and that WordswithMeaning! were the last to cover the story, which we claimed was an unjustified shooting. If the Elkass family read this, or you know the family,...
