Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Lin Hai -- the Chinese businessman imprisoned by Chinese authorities last year for passing on 30,000 email addresses to dissidents and activists -- has been released from jail. According to a report by AFP today, Lin was released in September 1999 -- almost six months ago. It appears his release went unnoticed. When AFP caught up with him, Lin was not particularly keen to talk to them. There are suggestions that his early -- and noiseless -- release was the result of a deal between the businessman and Shanghai authorities. Elsewhere, China Daily reported that China Telecom -- the country's dominant telco -- is to spend up to $2.4 billion improving its network. The cash will be used to improve bandwidth and security enabling the development of ecommerce in China. ® Related Story China jails software developer for selling email addresses
