No, Optus: don't try US-style net neutrality arguments in Oz


Optus can go...

Fk themselves!!!!!

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

Bloke, 26, accused of running drug souk Silk Road 2.0 cuffed by Feds


Another own goal

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

Emma Watson urges UN to back feminism – trolls threaten to leak her 'nude selfies'



Feminism is just like chauvinism ..... why should we tolerate either?

Equality now there is something I can stand behind.

Google Glass pics will BAFFLE admirers: Nudge nudge, WINK WINK


Listen people the world is not flat!

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!

Fukushima fearmongers: It's your fault Japan dumped CO2 targets


Re: The Tooth Fairy and Molten Salt Thorium Reactors

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.

Turnbull touts construction resumption in YouTube vid


Just build the thing already!!!!

Less talking more doing! Aussie politicians all a bunch of useless windbags!

Construction industry outlook is bad news for Turnbull's alt.NBN plan


Typical Australia

No we are entering the land of perpetual papers, research and more think tanks. .... just build the f'ing thing already. We waste more time talking about doing stuff than actually doing them!

Australia ponders 160,000-seat ERP possibilities


I hope they have learnt their lesson.

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.

Only 1 in 5 Americans believe in pure evolution – and that's an upswing


Faith and Science should be seperated

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!

Ubuntu 13.10 to ship with Mir instead of X


Re: Linux Graphics... is rubbish

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.


Linux Graphics... is rubbish

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!

Oz regulator “welcomes” debate on limiting net neutrality


Typical Australia

Trying to fleece the public at every corner..... this is the Harvey Normal school of internet economics!

Humans becoming steadily STUPIDER, says brainiac boffin

Thumb Up

Re: electrolytes:

Thank you... that commetn made my day

Conroy says filter demise a win for community consultation

Thumb Down

ACL neither moral or the majority

If the ACL is so hell bent on keeping children safe in Asutralia.... maybe they should focus their efforts on peadophile priests.

Everyday you open the paper and there is another article about pedo priests. The ACL and Conroyt can botyh go ...... themselves.

Google finds MORE slurped Street View data down under

Big Brother

so what....

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.

iPhone queue ‘superficial and pretentious’ says queuing fangirl


iPhone owns Australia

Travelling on public transport one can clearly see that Apple owns Australia. Every douche and his dog owns an iPhone.

Having said that.... Aussie is always a few yearss behind the curve and I reckon this will change.

Will Samsung's patent court doc leak backfire spectacularly?


The fundamental difference between the 2 companies are....

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!

Google field tests (yet another) Facebook rival

Thumb Up

Google.... I wish there were more of the.

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!

Oracle tests find NFC lags in execution

Thumb Up


In Melbourne the new rail card system can take upto 5sec to scan.... when it works and has already costed us $1.5b

This system sounds awesome compared to the pile of sh1te we have

Australia, give up your fixed broadband!


Not only are we on the ar$e end of the planet.

... 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!

Oz governments find new use for censorship


F*** Aussie Polies

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.

Chrome 9 debuts with WebGL, app store, instant annoyance

Thumb Up

Chrome is awesome

I love Chrome and the new webapp store is wonderful.

I suggest giving it a try. As for people who moan about the functionailty etc... simple solution.

Don't use it stick with your IE and FF if that is what makes you happy.

Google shocks world with unthreaded Gmail


Gmail = Awesome!

When it comes to intelligence, I think Google gives most users too much credit. That is why FBook is so popular.... it appeals to the lowest common denominator...STUPIDITY!

Stallman storms in on Oz software patent conflab

Thumb Down

What's that skippy

Australia is conservative and moronic. The gov. never has the peoples best interest in mind, just look at the filter

We in Aus are used to being shafted by gov and business with ripoff pricing and retarded politicians.

Welcome to the Patents Australia!

Google boss turns Wave demise into success of sorts


@ grumpy

Why do you even bother commenting on this article?

You the type of person that when ask about his opinion on a hypothetical Mr X..

"Well I have never met Mr X or even know if he exists... but if you ask he is...blah blah blah!"

Apathy kills Google's new-age Wave



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?

Ubuntu 10.04 triumphs over GRUB bug


One rule for one...

The difference is that the Ubuntu crowd fix these issues instead of sitting on their A$$es.
