I'm too busy working in my shed to spend time watching the TV...
Much prefer my AM radio blasting away
@Duncan Macdonald: The DVD is just the car radio deck with a composite output feeding the TV, so I doubt that there is even a HDMI input on the sub-$200 display supplied.
.... And I've seen one of these in the Big Green* hardware stores discounted to $2500, there was another model from the same manufacturer with just a cd/tape deck and speakers being flogged for $800
*The big green hardware stores will be very familiar to Aussies who live anywhere close to a metropolitan area, I just don't want them to get free publicity on ElReg.
makes me wonder whether they have fully thought the idea out, have you tried to scan a QR code on an angled or curved surface, not an easy feat if you ask me.
So not surprised, the VTD is just another idiotic Victorian government department.
They can't get anything right ever so this is just standard operating procedure.
lather, rinse, repeat
lemme guess the website name before it disappears after a few short weeks of action;
an all too familiar story with this government and their ideas..
Damn whinging poms
Not too surprised at your reaction to the weather... 32 degrees is cold for Darwin, just wait for the real heat traveling down the Sturt Highway!
Don't forget that the finish line is in the driest state of the driest continent.
Awesome news. As an aussie war crypto enthuasuist I love hearing such good news about Bletchley Park.
So much is said about ensuring that history is preserved that the funds are directed to making sure that physical things like ordnance and equipment is kept for historical needs that the other factors that made the wars successful such as intellengence gathering are left out.
Thank you for committing to preserve a great history.
RTFA - Samgung has capitulated by REMOVING features to get that contentious patent tally down, as a result buyers are receiving a crippled product.
I'm going to buy one anyway because the crippled version is very likely to work properly once the homebrewers get their hands on a complete version.
Don't forget the new number for Police, Fire or Ambulance...
It's easy to remember too!!!
Time will tell...
If this actually gets followed through fully. I am happy that at least my preferred browser maker has made a statement of intent to follow up, but we might see one or two days before the deadline a reversal from Mozilla.
I sincerely hope that doesn't happen though and we see a few more point upgrades to blacklist non-conforming CA's.
It's the Canon crap
After over 10 years of having HP hardware to work with I left that job went to another outfit who decided to buy Canon printers, well.... it only took me 30 minutes on each and every desktop to install a convoluted proprietary printer network driver... and that was before trying to get online scanning from the MFP's. Scanning simply won't work unless the computer AND printer are on the same physical network switch.
back to the future!!!
Does ANYONE remember the crapware that Real Networks foisted upon users who wanted to use their player software? Seems too much like a repeat of this, and if Skype was willing to let this one through then there's not telling what they might have in store for their users.
already been done
Google has been there, done that!
Has to be a better option as it reduces the need for installers for the final mile connection.. users get to do the dirty work themselves!
Seems the author has never tried wireless broadband, especially between 4pm to 9pm weekdays....
Yet again, Australia lags behind on infrastructure to actually backup these grand plans and sky-high aims.
No thanks, I'll stick to the copper....
pass me the popcorn....
...this is going to be good to watch.
It has all the good things that make up a great train wreck....
1. serial pest who can't get enough of his head on tv
2. Id10t lawyer who can't read a case number properly
3. CNN who keeps putting him on TV as a cyber security specalist
4. And an imploding business... see http://ligattleaks.org
His actual twitter feed is a joy to behold @gregorydevans
But I'm undecided as to which is more fun to read, the real one or the parody @gregory_d_evans (until it gets changed as someone has filed a complaint to twitter!!)
PS, can ElReg please add a GregEvans icon... surely there is a CC licensed version out in the ether!!
silence is deafening
Not too much info to be found on the ACTUAL site... pity.
The only thing I have found is the orphaned webpage referred to in the twitter post.
On the other hand, I still am amazed at how many people still use the same password on sites as their email accounts and then wonder why they are compromised. I just use an email alias that forwards to an unpublished account. This almost ensures that if these breaches happen, I will never have an active email account compromised.
Not as bad as The Hoff
Thats a better analogy than David Hasselhoff who after facing a few balls from Shane Warne in the nets spoke about Warne's pitching.
Then again, it's from people who beleive that the champion baseball team in their country are winners of the world series!!
