Optus can go...
This should be enough reason to leave that over-priced Telstra-Clone of an ISP!

So the authorities would rather have you buy drug in an alley from some thug who knows you have cash in your pocket.
Also they hate competition... they would rather you buy product from their corrupt sources than safe anonymous sources.
Oh well it will be a few months till Silkroad3
So all you naysayers ... So people want convenience in their devices. Here is a progressive piece of wearable computing that by the sounds of it... all you cave men want s big button installed on it.
Being an eye piece, blinking is a logical step. Next will be Iris tracking.... welcome to the present!
Cost of uranium for fuel is about $2500 per kg. Then you need to factor in disposal costs. It's also rare when compared to other minerals.
Thorium is abundant and while we in the west sit with our fingers up our butts, China and India are going ahead with this tech. China aims to have an operational plant by 2020 and they are patenting the Hell out of it. So not only will they own the world manufacturing they will own the worlds energy market. Best you start learning Manderin .
I am pleased that someone if perusing this tech as it has the potential to save the planet and I welcome our new/old Chinese overlords.
Don't outsource this project to the likes of IBM. The government should employ local resources to complete this.... with the non-existent SAP employment market right now in Aus. I know plenty competent Functional and Technical consultants that can see this project through tot the end.
Religion should be kept out of the science class... Let people free follow their faith but it should not be involved in the science class.
The results of religion sticking its nose into science can clearly be seen in the islamic world. Around 900ad ~ 1300 ad the islamic world was the center of progress welcoming all scholars regardless of their faith to further their knowledge... while Europe was burning their daughters and wives as witches. However some douche Imam decided that Mathematics was the work of the devil and it all went down hill from there.....to which they have never recovered. The USA is headed in the same direction with the religious right trying to influence scientific studies with faith based logic. If you decide that something is the work of god you stop exploring possible solutions... and if you stop exploring you may as well be dead!
Yes I am aware of that and the X system definitely fits that purpose. However that is not what Ubuntu are trying to achieve so why should they not move onto something that is not chained to the past?
Ubuntu clearly has a vision, while it may or may not be agreeable with some but atleast they are doing something about it.
If it pans out, well we jsut have to wait and see... what is annoying is that every acts like ubuntu doing there own thing is killing the other projects. The other projects exist with or with out ubuntu and there are many other distros out there that one can use instead of Ubuntu.
Good on someone atleast trying to forge ahead. If you don't like it don't use it!
Everyone bangs on about how open and free Linux is to be able to do what you like. So as soon as someone excercises that right everyone start whyning like little children.
Suck it up princess... if you you so opposed to this maybe you should create your own distro!
So Google slurped data from people with open networks...so be it. Everyone is jumping up and down in fits and the .gov are on their high horse. Let’s not forget that the government wants to keep all your sms,email and browsing history for up to 2 years ( NOW THAT IS SCAREY ) Most of us have CCards and use some form of social networking .... news flash your data is already out their...the genie has left the bottle so to speak
Google is the least of your worries. I trust Google with my data instead of Julia Gillard.
Your data on its own is of no importance to Google it’s the aggregated data that is useable. However everyone has a delusion of grandeur and thinks their crappy unencrypted data snippet is the holy grail of information.
Samsung is not trying to prevent anyone from buying an iPhone.
Apple is trying to prevent everyone from buying anything else. If you Apple fanbois are so upset with Samsung ... don’t buy their products its that simple.
I think Apple are just upset that people look at them with their iDevice as Neanderthals .... The phone looks dated and feels dated. I always see people on the subway using that crappy keyboard to send text messages and click on an interface that looks like a Fischer-Price toy. Instead of dwelling on what Samsung is doing maybe you should be worried about what Apple is not doing.... like innvovating!
Everyone sits an b1tches about Google but at the end of the day they have given more tech to teh public then most other companies. Yes they do it in order to drum up their own business but they do not stop people from taking it an trying to make it better and using it themselves.
They not on the whole sue some one if they are successful...instead they endevour to be better at what they do. So they mine data.... big deal. They are atleast kinda open about it and unless you have been living in a cave its been happening for decades even before the internet.
I for one enjoy using the google apps and if it means they mine data about me to keep them free I am ok with that...I have no delusions of self grandeur .
So next time you b1tch about google think about how awesome the search engine, maps , earth and all their other tools are and quit whyning!
... but also with our heads in the sand.
I live in Australia and the constant nickle and diming everyone for every inch drives me nuts. Having moved back here from Europe I can not believe what a pathetic state internet access is here in Auz.
$42billion for a NBN when all we want is a bigger pipe overseas. Here is a news flash Aus... the internet exists elsewhere having a fibre NBN just means we will be going no where faster!
I am so sick and tired of this gov. telling me what I can do and what I can't. Goverment is not a replacment for parenting.
They rather bang on about computer games than fix the raging alcohol problem in Aus. In Aus drinking and punching each other is acceptable but palying a R18 game in your privacey of your home is unacceptable.
I thought WAVE was pretty good. My only issue with it was the fact that GMAIL was not integrated into it. I did not want to juggle 2 email systems.
Had GMAIL worked with in WAVE I think they would of had a much better response.... kind of silly they did not do it, maybe there was some technical reason for it I don't know?
