below), we have started now
the FREE and OPEN Publication of the PDF of the accepted papers on the
Free for all the Scientists to Publish & Free to Download everything!
So, our authors will be able to receive more citations.
This is necessary for the WSEAS impact, since now all the PDFs will be
open for all and we must
be competitive regarding the scientific quality.
The main criterion for publication is: Scientific Quality: Original
Work, Breakthrough Publications that
will bring CITATIONS to the Authors and to the WSEAS of course.
Example of OPEN PDFs
Simultaneously, the Journals will be published in HARD COPY. If
somebody needs the hard copy, he will pay
* Unfortunately for the old issues we cannot open their PDFs because
we have some constraints
from the subscribers.
On the other hand, WSEAS puts the bar for acceptance extremely high.
We have given instructions to the Reviewers.
Our Statistics for the WSEAS Journals say that for every 10 papers, 1
is accepted and 9 is rejected, approximately. We are waiting the
review of extended papers from July 2007 - December 2007 to announce
the official statistics per journal. Up to now, the rejection rate is
approximately: 10% accepted, 90% rejected

When iPod global marketing director Steve Joswiak was asked at
Macworld 2007 why Apple had chosen to restrict iPhone to AT&T in the
US, he replied that Apple could not have delivered functions such as
visual voicemail without AT&T. That was no doubt true when iPhone was
still under development but how can Apple afford to stick to exclusive
carrier deals as it takes iPhone global?
Some analysts and commentators have noted that Apple has created bad
blood between itself and a number of carriers who were passed over
when it brought iPhone to the market. One can understand Apple's
reasons for striking an exclusive deal with US heavyweight AT&T when
it was a nobody in the mobile phones business. However, when Apple
went into Europe with the iPhone five months later it was riding the
crest of a wave. Just about any wireless carrier would have been
willing to talk business with Apple concerning the iPhone.
However, instead of shopping the iPhone around to the multitude of
carriers in the highly competitive European wireless networks market,
Apple chose to go with the historical incumbent monopolists in the UK,
Germany and France. In the process, it passed over a number of
important carriers, not least Vodafone, the largest mobile network
operator in the world outside of China.
It is probably a debatable point as to whether Apple should have taken
the iPhone into Europe before a 3G model was available. Some say it
doesn't matter. However, two things are fairly clear: European sales
are not all they could be and there is a huge market for unlocked
The discrepancy between the number of iPhones assigned to carrier
contracts and the number of iPhones shipped is enormous. No doubt a
fair proportion of this is due to unsold inventory in retail stores.
However, a significant number of iPhones are being sold unattached to
carrier plans. iPhones are being sold unlocked in the markets of Asia
where you can't get them with a carrier plan, but they're also being
bought and unlocked in the US and Europe.
The message is that many and probably most iPhone buyers would like to
be given a choice of carrier when they buy their iPhone. Some would be
prepared to pay more as they do with other smartphones and buy their
iPhone unattached to any subsidised carrier contract. The point is
many consumers feel no loyalty to carriers and resent being forced to
