North Koreans Love Downloading Angry Birds, Porn

The downloads included Angry Birds, Tiny Troopers, British shows like Top Gear and downloads of “Japanese and American pornography.” One download was even for HBO doc Manhunt: The Search for Bin Laden. Since access to the Internet is as rare as achieving happiness in North Korea, who are these downloaders? Martyn Williams, the owner of the North Korea Tech Blog, told the Telegraph that he thinks it’s foreigners visiting the country’s capital since they are allowed to access the full Internet for a fee. He added that “the shows being torrented seem unlikely to be hits in North Korea and they are so varied they appear random.” But another blogger, Sebastian Anthony, said he think it’s “totally possible” that the downloads are coming from regular North Koreans. http://ift.tt/eA8V8J
