WikiLeaks founder Assange suspected of sex crimes

Interpol has issued an international warrant at the request of a Swedish court for the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in connection with alleged sex crimes.

The Stockholm Criminal Court last week issued an international arrest warrant for Assange on probable cause, saying he is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and illegal use of force. Sweden asked Interpol to post a "Red Notice" after a judge approved a motion to bring him into custody.

The arrest warrant stems from allegations made against Assange, who is Australian, in August. In a November, Assange's lawyer said the sex-crime charges stem from consensual sexual relationships his client had with two women.

    Julian Assange is just handing us the information that we already knew or suspected. No surprise.

    I am so okay with this, if it didn't seem mean and insidious. Why is this guy divulging such information? Is he doing such for the greater good? Or, is he just being a creep?

    I just got this and while the concept is fattasnic and I like the wireless automatic syncing to my mobile unit, the interface is pretty terrible. You pack songs onto your phone in playlists, so you can't browse artists or albums freely. Also, the playlists can only be sorted manually on your computer, if you don't they appear on the phone in the order they were added.
