20/05/09 - EMOL (Chile)

SANTIAGO.– After Apple began selling the iPhone online at a discount in the United States, a national company has decided to follow the trend. This discount offer is a clear sign to the industry that Apple is probably getting rid of its stock before introducing the newest model. The local company is Claro, and they are inviting all owners of the iPhone 2G (which was never officially sold in Chile) to exchange it for a 3G for the price of $29,000 pesos for the 8GB model and $32,990 pesos for the 16GB model. The old cell phones are maintained with the prepaid system. According to the company, this initiative looks to expand the iPhone 3G platform even more. The arrival of a new model seems to be imminent. In fact, company executives have not even attempted to deny the idea that Apple renews the iPhone family every year, specifically in June, when Apple developers get together for their...

Others have already gotten in line at the Club Hípico horse track facility where Nick, Kevin and Joe Jones are to perform live in concert tonight.

LIMA.- Quito has come out strongly in support of Chile's cause in the midst of the international lawsuit in which Peru has laid claim to maritime territory. This news was met with a firm refutation from Lima, where Minister of Foreign Affairs José Antonio García Belaúnde reiterated that the lawsuit filed by Peru at The Hague does not involve Ecuador. "The litigation process at The Hague is only between Peru and Chile, and does not involve Ecuador or any other country", affirmed the official in response to comments made by his Ecuadorian counterpart, Fander Falconí.

In declarations made to Agencia Andina, García Belaúnde claimed that the statements made by his Ecuadorian counterpart "are nothing new", since on...

19/05/09 - EMOL (Chile)

SANTIAGO.- The Humanist Party has decided to abandon negotiations it had been pursuing with the political coalition "Juntos Podemos" and the Concertación to reach a pact regarding the parliamentary elections in December. The information was announced by the president of the party, Efrén Osorio, along with former presidential candidate Tomás Hirsch. The leaders explained that the decision was based on the fact that the party considered the Concertación's proposal to allow "Juntos Podemos" vacancies in seven districts to be an unsatisfactory agreement for all parties involved. It was for this reason the Humanist Party announced that it would develop its own list of parliamentary candidates and will only not present candidates in four or five districts within which the Communist Party, according to an agreement reached with the left, hopes to have a deputy elected. The reason,...
