Nimantha,

Frankly speaking I have no clue why Youtube was banned in Pakistan;so I would refrain from making any comments either for or against it;atleast untill I get to the bottom of why exactly the Government banned it there.

Its a well-known fact that various Governments use Tools of Social Media to foment unrest among populations Globally.

All it takes is for someone to pass around fake Doctored pictures or Videos of Someone insulting someone else and you have  a riot on your hands.

This is the primary reason why someone level of Censorship is desirable in today's extremely volatile world(especially when you have to deal with many Young & Unemployed people).

Instead of the Government doing it-Lets say a Parent decided to Censor some websites/Social Media tools which they felt were'nt appropriate for their Children;Would you be okay with that?

Same Philosophy applies here.

Waqas,

Too Bad!!!

Why did Pakistan Ban Youtube entirely? Does'nt it make more sense to ban offending videos as and when they arise??

Can't you use TOR or something to view the Video??

Believe me it will be worth it.

If you want(you will have to send me your Email for that);I can email you the Video.

Tech4people, yes Apple fans are very difficult to convince. The debate is usually lost by them on logical grounds.

Youtube banned in Pakistan for the past 2 years :(

Waqas,

Fair enough statement to make.

Fans live and Die by the Apple Brand today.

I doubt there is much that sceptics like you and me say that can convince them to change their behavior today.

Like this great and truly awesome Video from the Comedian Jimmy Kimmel-www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=rdIWKytq_q4

Tech4people, no matter how many flaws critics point out, fans have their mind made up before the product arrives that they will buy it. Let's see if Apple is unable to protect such a flaw in the product that really hurts the sale. Till now it has been just criticism but no reduction in sales.

Waqas,

The More Important Question to ask is how much of this criticism/mocking is justified?

If there is anything I have personally learnt about Apple's Mis-steps over the Last few Years or so(Especially since Jobs passed away) is that Apple Deserves the Criticism.

The Latest news on iOS8 is that it has messed up Bluetooth Connectivity for all pre-existing Users(who had no choice but to upgrade their OS thanks to Apple).

Do Apple deserve a Break over these mis-steps?

I don't think so.

Hmm. Though Apple has given the opportunity to get itself criticized but don't you think competitors contribute to the defamatory game too ?

Waqas,

Its way worse than that.

Everyone(and I really mean Everyone) is making fun of Apple Online please see[www.informationweek.com/it-life/apple-iphone-6-bendgate-top-10-tweets/d/d-id/1316101]

This is a terrible-terrible faux paus for Apple even worse than the NSA Scandal which clearly proved that every single Iphone ships data home to the NSA.

Tech4people, truly these are bad times for Apple. One thing we never expected is the quality of Apple's products in question. It can deal with the situation of ios but iPhone 6 is now out in the market and there is no going back from the products already on shelf.
