This week hundreds of Cubans filled the streets to get their first ever cell phone - something that had, until now been barred for anyone except authorized government officials and foreigners. The state-owned telephone offices started taking orders and delivering phones to residents after President Raul (brother of) Castro began easing restrictions on purchasing and using cellular phones. Owners of illegal cell phones, or those licensed in someone else's name could also register for actual service with no penalties.

I bet the Cubans get better wireless data rates than are available in Canada!

Apple can now negotiate a reasonable unlimited plan for Cuban iPhone customers so they can download Buena Vista Social Club from iTunes.

Now that's progress!:rolleyes: The vaunted (by nuts everywhere) "worker's paradise" of the Caribbean finally gets cell phones, anyone want to bet they'll be "tapped" by the government? It won't be like here where it takes a few key words to get the computer to monitor you, there it'll be all the time.
