Didn't get paid and not bothered.
I wouldn't be either if I had 21 macca's stores, Would already be rolling in money from last century when it was popular.

Looks like the penthouse sweet might not be the best purchase, If you buy the bottom floor you get a nuclear bunker when it sinks enough!
Pencil are you crazy?
You could make up just about anything to say it's addictive, Isn't life itself addictive?
Don't know about you lot, But I certainly look forward to waking up each morning!
You are thinking exactly like they are!
You are only thinking short term, In 10+ years possibly even less looking at how affordable they are already, People will have UHD tv's and probably in more than one room.
As people ditch cable tv and watch online content that they want to watch when they want to watch it, The access to more bandwidth will become even more relevant.
Home health services / 24/7 health monitoring for older citizens, Online education, The list is endless.
Copper doesn't cut it, It already struggles. There is no way it will handle a larger population who is consuming more data be it for entertainment/work/education/health it doesn't matter.
It's no different than when roadworks makes a new freeway, Only to see they have just made 2 lanes each way when it should have been 3+ for growing suburbs that are right next to it. They always do the cheapest option but it ends up costing more later on to add another lane, Instead of just doing it when the freeway was built.
Ripping up copper and replacing it with "new" copper is ridiculous, The trench is there future proof it by adding fibre optic cable from the start!
Until I can open folder in a new tab group(which every other browser does including IE), Then Edge isn't even worth using for me.
A simple yet very useful function that many people use and are still requesting on win 10 forums/suggestions, But it's not there in Edge.
Also I want to open a new tab to my own choosing such as Google search, Not some top sites and suggested content, Top Sites or blank page crap.
So how about they fix Edge before even bothering to offer money to use it!
Makes no sense, If they have an internet connection then they will have an email and phone of some sort.
Haven't checked as I don't use Facebook site but for most services such as Facebook, You probably need an email address to sign up in the first place!
Only reason for me having a Facebook account is so I can sign in to forum posts on other sites instead of creating accounts on every damn one of them with more passwords to try remember.
Glad I am not the only one,
Had the same thing happen to me a few years back, Was thinking to myself why the F do I need a car loan for, I had saved up cash for several years in bank and they gave me a bank cheque to give to car dealer, So they know I do not need a loan.
Maybe they were hoping I would give in to temptation, Then go and buy two models up from my car and be in debt for years, Silly buggers!
Looks like it's official then, We have a bunch of corporate idiots running the show that don't have a clue about tech.
If they build FTTP we don't need to upgrade the network which will save money and wasting time re doing it, By the time NBN is done it will already be time to dig it up and re do the copper because it can't handle future bandwidth needs.
Secondly why are they praising gigabit speeds on old HFC, Why don't they also tell the truth and say that those gigabit speeds are SHARED by all in the street, So you will be lucky to get any where near gigabit speeds especially during peak hour you may not even get 100mbit. They will be making you pay for the "gigabit speed" though regardless.
lol @ quad core for serious work.
If you bought a mac you have well and truly paid over the odds!
Who funded the study?
He is right sort of!
But it's not just your ISP and speed,Especially if he is talking about youtube, It is because they changed the way a video buffers with DASH(Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) and it sucks compared to the old way that would let you buffer the whole video and skip through it whenever you like. Even with a 100mbit connection youtube now sucks and stutters so much I find that I have to drop the quality settings down to 720p to have decent playback.
There is extensions such as youtube centre that disables DASH, But it doesn't seem to work for me, Others have had success.
Link us all the article, Because every one I have read has said the opposite!
They are all ripping up FTTN and replacing with FTTP because FTTN wasn't giving enough bandwidth.
Next iphone should have been number 1 on the list. As a joke, because it's Apple!
Driverless cars at number 2
Netflix(Australian catalogue) 3 It's not a joke unfortunately
Smart TV's recording you and sending ads at 4
Encryption(lack of and government backdoors) at 5 The real number 1
Hey look everyone, It's the boy who cried wolf....... again!
Even if it's true, No one cares Nork.
You offer nothing on the world stage other than threats and parades of synchronised dancers, Go back and play in the corner of the room, NOW!
Both parties need to stop being a parent!
First they uses tax payers money to hand out to single parents and bludgers, Then it gives baby bonuses to new families like a grandparent would do to help out, Next is first home buyers grants like a mum/dad would chip in for their kids.
Now it is acting on behalf of a parent in censoring things from minors, My advice to all you in government positions is GTFO!
What next RFID chips implanted in newborns, So they can be tracked at all times?
We can all laugh now but just you wait what the future holds, When they are just left alone to pass any law they like, All in the name of "protect the children", "terrorism" or "national security".
Forget Nth Korea,Pretty soon it will be Malcolm Jong-un leading the democratic people's republic of Australia!
Are you that very same person who defended leaded petrol or DDT all those years ago? lol
Sometimes laws need to be broken and questions need to be asked, And somebody needs to keep a watch on the watchers so they don't abuse their powers!
Who else is going to do it? A government official hired by the government to monitor the government?
I am sure that will go down well. ;)
"Those who think this is just child's play are clueless and most chose to stay that way. When their bank account gets cleaned out or their personal identity is stolen and their world is turned upside down, then they'll start to get in touch with reality and the digital world that we now live in"
Funny you dare say that considering governments around the globe are calling for even less encryption after Paris attacks.
All so they can "monitor terrorists" or "protect the children" and other buzzwords they like to throw around, If they get their way your bank account details and personal identity will be less secure than they are now!
I dread the day where future houses will have to be built entirely out of glass, Just so everyone else can see they are behaving themselves! We can laugh and joke about it now but who knows, Would not surprise me one little bit if RFID tags one day become compulsory, When a child is born one is placed under the skin. A case of let's "protect the children" after all right?
So I take it everyone on the planet can also take their car dealers to court for every speeding fine they receive, Car dealer must be responsible right?
They make it so easy for everyone to put their foot down and go over the limit, They also make nearly every new car able to go over 200km/h, Which is double the allowance in my country on freeways.
I don't see how any ISP or service is responsible for what people are doing with it.
Are gun dealers responsible for any shooting that kills someone, Are drug companies responsible for all the deaths caused by people overdosing or mixing with other medication,
Are bottle shops responsible for all the drunken behaviour and violence that kill others?
The list is endless!
Society may as well collapse if they think this way, Because everything can be blamed on someone else.
If I decided to start a business, selling donuts for example and some dude walks in and decides to eat until he bursts how is that my fault?
I am just offering donuts it's not up to me to tell the guy what to do with them!
Maybe Facebook and Sony should be taken to court for allowing terrorists the ability to communicate and plan attacks?
Where does it all stop?
Glad you pointed the last part out, It is the only reason I don't use Edge.
I need to be able to open all my bookmarks in tabs with one click, So I have gone back to IE for now.
More competition is good!
Only use two local suppliers, It's either Scorptec or PC Case Gear when I buy parts, Another option same price or cheaper would be nice, Also might help on availability when some parts are in short supply
I am on Telstra cable 100mbit which is already 3 times faster than the NBN obsolete crap government wants to roll out over here.
I can confirm ever since Netflix arrived here, The cable speeds have become a joke especially around peak time as everyone wants to use the net or stream.
It must be the reason why Telstra gave us cable users DOUBLE the monthly gb allowance from 500gb to 1tb, That was as soon as Netflix came here to try and make up for the crap speeds we now get.
So thank you Netflix for the extra 500gb from competition but also damn you for halving my speeds. lol
Don't under estimate Telstra, They were smart.
They knew their old copper network is already well and truly f@%#ed beyond repair and managed to sell it to NBN company for $30 million I think it was or something like that. lol
The ONLY way to do it properly is to run FTTP!
Seems expensive up front but it turns out cheaper in the long run, Idiots in government don't care for "long term" as they only want results now to boost their party.
The cost of the fibre cable has dropped substantially already when NBN was only on the drawing board.
The cost to maintain FTTN and then have to go back and replace it anyway will exceed FTTP's initial cost in the long run. All while Australia falls behind in global broadband speeds and with it potential new start up business's that could have boosted economy and created jobs.
"no sea level rise danger", Says some scientist writing from the safety of Washington, Probably in a high rise building.
Try telling that to some pacific islanders who are already feeling the effects of sea level rise, Of course there is a danger depending on an individuals current situation. What can be debated is what is causing it but that is not the headline!
I think they forgot one of the zero's on the price!
I know the Aussie dollar is crap at the moment but the iPhone 6s 128gb launched at $1529! o.O
Could get an entire pc for that money.
And I thought $800 was steep for my imported Note II a few years back. lol
Can't see myself ever paying over a grand just for a phone but I am sure many out there do and good luck to them!
Disabled people perhaps, Being able to use speech instead of hands may be the best thing ever for them.
Maybe for porn addicts as well, Where the other hand is too busy to type. lol
Those are only minor things to most of the normal users out there, I am more annoyed by the need to use a Microsoft account to actually use most of the new features in Win 10 like cortana.
Still many of us out there who prefer a local account only for their main pc.
Also the new Edge browser has 3 flaws which will piss off a lot of people out there, Can't open multiple tabs in any of your bookmark folders in one click or any clicks that I can see, Can't open a new tab to a page of your choice such as google search home page, It's either top sites(full of crap like facebook,twitter,amazon etc etc), top sites with news or a blank page. No custom option to open a new tab to a site of your choice.
And the last one is a simple one, Be able to sort your bookmarks by name, Have to currently drag each one to where you want it, A nightmare if you have 100+ bookmarks.
One other thing missing in edge which they will be adding later is extensions, So you can use your ad blocker and themes etc Should have been there from the start in my opinion!
Gone back to using IE/Firefox and Chrome until they can sort the mess out in edge browser.
It is fast though, I'll give it that.
Other than that Win 10 is pretty good, Basically what Windows 8 should have been, It is quite snappy and managed to set up EVERY driver for every piece of hardware I have, Which was a first for me ever. Usually always something windows manages to miss as I have enthusiast parts.
I think if you use the MS account you are going to get screwed, Marketing and spying on you galore.
I would rather just give up the new features like Cortana personal assistant and just use a local account.
All I care about is NOT seeing, "internet explorer has stopped working".
Give me a stable browser that can have at least 10 tabs open without one of them crashing, And then causing the page or tab to not be able to close, Usually requiring a complete browser shutdown and restart. Damn that was annoying in IE.
I like IE's easy layout, Firefox's functions and Chromes speed, Now merge them all into one browser. ;)
Ohh don't worry about the DNA sample, I am sure they are already in the process of getting a contract for someone to make all the RFID chips to place under each citizens skin!
DNA only tells who you are, They(Governments around the globe) want far more information about you than that. They will be wanting to know where you are at all times soon.
I already have HUD on my car and I can tell you it is a hell of a lot safer than looking down taking your eyes OFF the road to look at any dials!
The problem with dials is you take longer to read what speed you are doing where as a number is instant.
Yeah, But can it run Crys..... ahhh forget it I'll get my coat.
If the NBN is worst in history then WTF have they been doing all this time in parliament, NBN can benefit everyone where as baby bonuses or first home buyer grants only benefit some! Take your heads out of your arses politicians, Investing money in countries infrastructure is far more important than anything else, Roads/rail/public transport,hospitals,schools and now in 21st century TELECOMMUNICATIONS more than ever.
If they bothered to do any research at all they would have seen some other countries that did FTTN are already saying it was a waste of time and money and are now upgrading to FTTP!
The parts that say, Retire later and longer hours don't mix especially for REAL jobs.
By real I mean any blue collar job, Would love to see these office workers on a construction site or in a factory at age 70 doing manual labour. All good and well sitting on your ass punching codes into a computer or talking on the phone to some client anybody can do that. Now try standing for 8+ hours or lifting/carrying/assembling heavy stuff around all day, Or stuck on some assembly line where time is critical. Now picture those scenarios with a 70 year old trying to keep up. Yeah you see the problem!
If anything working day should be cut down to 7 hours so no one is so stressed and tired and it should be a 3 day weekend to fully recover, I bet if that was implemented worldwide just how much better/happier we would all be instead of this constant rush with everything along with stress and the hate/rage/violence that it can lead to.
But then again by the time a lot of these readers reach 70 they will be most likely replaced by robots/programs, That goes for office positions as well! ;)
Geez let me see, Family night out at movies $50+(That's just the tickets), Putting up with annoyingly loud food wrappers from other people, Others using phones or talking through movie, Coming back to your car that's been keyed from some jealous asshat.
Compared to staying at home with family and friends, Reclining on couch with feet up like gold class, pizza or anything else which you cant take inside cinema, No finding parking space, No annoying people to ruin movie, Large screen TV with Dolby surround, $5 movie rental for HD version on my cable tv box and even 3d version for those that bother.
I think you get the picture, I know which one I'll take every time!
You can have a tv or projector that can cover your whole wall these days for an affordable price, The times have changed. They need to come up with a completely new experience if they want to take peoples money which is getting harder to come by for many.
So this will be the ultimate porn(uhh I mean research) tool then?
Who is that hot chick or movie star, Send uploaded image to this program and bingo out pops a few names you can then google even more porn(uhh I mean info). /facepalm
Mind you I bet most of us would end up using it at some point, Would be quite useful.
This is getting out of hand in all major western countries now, These dickheads seem to forget what our ancestors were fighting for. Freedoms which governments are now eroding away bit by bit. The terrorists have already won with out lifting a fkn finger, They have put fear into minds of governments causing them to act against its own people in the name of "safety".
Next they will be wanting us all to live in glass houses that way everyone can see what everyone else is doing!
Spend money on old school spies and overseas intelligence, Putting more restrictions or taking away privacy just shows that the fight is already lost in my opinion. You can not stop any attack just as you can't stop some completely normal citizen one day losing it for any number of reasons and going on a rampage hurting/killing other people, All the data in the world won't help.
Think she needs to see an optometrist, I am not seeing anything here.
If anything this is doing her a favour keeping her in the spotlight!
Because before this her name had no significance in GTA V for me, But now it does because of the lawsuit. lol
Good point but it can go all out in the other direction as well depending on your love for someone or something.
I would kill everyone on the planet to save my pet dog if it was the only choice as I love her more than anything else, Doesn't make it right though. lol
It's very close. lol
15 light years on current human technology = how many thousands of years to get there again?
May as well be a hundred light years away, To me very close means the moon,That close that we can actually get to it.... apparently. (Just kidding Buzz.) ;)
Hold's nose shut and speaks out aloud, DO.. YOU.. WANT.. TO.. PLAY.. A..... GAME?
The last one is wrong, Sorry to say.
Everyone needs a friend every now and then, All good and well married with partner being your best friend but even so, Both need a break from each other every once in a while. Keeps relationship happy!
And for those alone then it applies even more so to keep you sane.
You got it wrong,
Second line should be "Farts a lot"
Fourth line should be "Pervs on my other friends"
There fixed it for ya. ;)
Now if a woman said that on stage I would applaud her and get the joke!
You forgot the 5th one which applies in most countries.
5. Waste tax payers money giving them luxuries they don't deserve!
As inhumane as some former communist countries were and maybe some still are, Sometimes a bullet to the back of the head is the best option for certain crimes! cheap and painless and puts an end to it all so everyone can move on.
Just give me more storage and an extra days battery use, Couldn't give two shits wether it's iphone or android anymore or 2k,4k,8k resolution or whatever they are trying to push these days, Have had both and they are just as good as each other. 128gb on device(before sd card) would be nice for a lazy bastard like myself who doesn't like deleting their podcasts and other media just to make room!
Ohhh and most importantly seeing as it is a phone after all how about adding a decent antenna instead of the shit from both lately, signal quality seems to be getting worse each new generation, Not sure if it's because of all the BS and bloatware installed or what but it can't be my phone company, The towers don't move!
YES, Yes you would be addicted to it. It isn't like 3d glasses, This puts you IN THE GAME!
It is a whole new gaming experience, It is so realistic that quite a few people get motion sickness from it and they are still trying to figure out a way to get around that.
If the price is right it will be the next biggest thing in gaming without a doubt. Then of course there are many other uses for it, medical, engineering, military training and yes probably porn.
Only let down is the low resolution but I hear the final consumer version will have a HD version when it's released.
Many out there are willing to fork out $500+ on latest graphics card so they wont have any problem doing the same on something that will totally change their gaming experience.
Bring it on!
FTTN will be a fkn disaster and will end up costing far more to repair/replace than just doing FTTP first time around.
Need we say more!
Seems decent, I have been on old ipad 2 and just got a hand me down off old man who just got ipad air, Now I have his old ipad 4. Having said that though my next tablet I will buy is probably a Galaxy note 10.1 2014 edition, Just seems like it has most of the stuff I want on it. Better screen,higher pixel density,micro sd card slot, S pen, no issues with flash web sites etc etc.
Ipad air has it right on size/weight department though, It feels a lot easier handling it without much effort!
Sorry but I don't know anyone that prefers cloud over having it stored locally on disc,card,drive or whatever, Cloud is rubbish if you are struggling to get a connection, Why should I need an internet connection just to play a song or video I own. What if the server is down for maintenance, Also don't want my personal files stored on some computer on the other side of the globe where their laws/jurisdiction is completely different to where I am, who knows they could be looking at the data and selling the info to a 3rd party.
Give me a memory slot any day of the week I don't care if it's on an Apple device or Samsung!
Maybe a bit of their own medicine,
Comes to mind!
Wonder if it was written by the same marketing that said Windows 8 sales are through the roof.
Come on we all know it's the US playing around with HAARP!
I'll get my coat.
