Worth reading: Murdoch says no content to Google, VoIP still not available on 3G iPhone
News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch tells Austria's Sky News that he plans to withhold content from Google searches.
He cited the Wall Street Journal as an example of a source where only the first paragraph comes up on search engines and is free. Anything after that is subscription-based. He is planning to make newspapers like The Times and Sunday Times chargeable online, he said in a video.
Check out this interview with Sky (which News Corp. owns, by the way):
Gigaom's Om Malik questions why Internet voice applications for the iPhone still aren't running on AT&T's 3G network. This is despite an announcement by AT&T on Oct. 6 that it would carry VoIP applications for the iPhone. Here's what I got when I tried to make a call this morning on my Skype iPhone application: "You need WiFi to call over Skype. Skype calls over 3G networks are currently not allowed due to contractual restrictions."
And more on Web video. My colleague Mike Musgrove writes about cutting the cable cord (which people aren't really doing).
