Etisalat unblocks community sites

UAE telecom operator Etisalat has reversed its position on the blocking of a number of popular websites in the UAE.

It has unblocked YouTube.com as well as online community myspace.com, social networking site hi5.com and photo sharing resource flickr.com, meaning users can now access these sites.

Commenting on its decision to block the YouTube site, Etisalat had previously told ITP that it was blocking the site on instructions from the authorities because of the presence of adult content.

“This content is clearly against the religious, cultural, political and moral values of the UAE,” Saoud Al Shamsi, acting assistant general manager of Etisalat’s internet arm eCompany, had saidHoneywell solution for Tasnee’s plant

Honeywell has announced a US$7million contract to supply process and safety controls for Tasnee Petrochemicals’ new ethylene plant in Saudi Arabia. The technology and manufacturing firm will provide its process automation solution, the Experion Process Knowledge System, as well as its Safety Manager platform.

The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2007, while production at the plant is expected to start from 2008.

“Next-generation facilities need next-generation technology, and Honeywell and Experion are two of the premier names in the chemical processing industry,” said Meghal Joshi, lead process control engineer for Tasnee.Symbol, Wincor to shop together
