Pre-announce NubiNews.net

NubiNews.net is the next generation of NubiNews.

The ".net" here means we will support "Community Sources" -- anyone can publish "enhancement scripts" for displaying their favorite web sites in the streamlined NubiNews style. This is very similar to greasemonkey, which has a large number of scripts available from http://userscripts.org/. So hopefully instead of the 50 or so web sites that NubiNews 7.x used to support, we will soon see hundreds of web sites ....

Also, NubiNews.net will no longer bundle a large number of enhancement scripts. This will allow the NubiNews author concentrate on their favorite tasks, such as improving the offline reading capabilities.

People wake up

Here's a response to the "NubiNews falls victim to political pressure" comments in Android Market.

Not everything is about politics. We stopped distributing HK/Taiwan/US news because an HK publisher threatened to sue us. We have too little money and too little time to fight them in court.

Most non-mainland-China sites were already blocked by the Chinese firewall. There was no point for the Chinese government to take on NubiNews, as NubiNews does not have any firewall-breaking capability. Plus, NubiNews developers all live outside of China so we don't really care what the Chinese government thinks.

So here it goes. If you need to find someone to hate in this incident, pick the lawyers.

It's time to stop being too simple, sometimes naive.

P.S., we are working on a solution to separate (a) NubiNews the reader app, and (b) the contents. This will allow 3rd party developers to post their favorite sites onto NubiNews. Hopefully this will be done in a few weeks. In the mean time, please be patient and feel free to explore other wonderful readers out there :-)
