Interesting move by Google - if they can get enough access to WiFi APs, then coupled with the Android Wear 5.1 update that adds WiFi support, Android Wear watches could get notifications out and about without having to carry your phone - they just need to increase what you can do on-watch without having to switch back to the phone.

Yet another case of copyright harming creators.
If copyright length was a sane amount of 15 to 20 years then this wouldn't be a problem - http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2015/03/atari-to-indie-dev-stop-ripping-off-your-own-work-on-tempest-2000/
Developer Jeff Minter publicly chafes at Atari's attempts to limit TxK.

For far too long, Australia's political sector has gotten technology policy completely wrong. I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore. Let's take Delimiter into the Canberra Press Gallery and literally write the book on tech policy while we're there.

Perhaps I should go and try my hand at rabbit hunting...
Rabbits are taking over a park and beach area along Lake Burley Griffin, immune from Commonwealth and ACT agencies.

When the government forces us to downgrade our privacy protections to help stop the "baddies", it ends up threatening our personal security later.

"The weak 512-bit keys are a vestige of the 1990s, when the Clinton administration required weak keys to be used in any software or hardware that was exported out of the US."

Bug forces millions of sites to use easily breakable key once thought to be dead.

I think it's pretty stunning how little about copyright law that this filmmaker understands
""It is just as if I drew a pic of Power Rangers on a napkin and I gave it to my friend. Is it illegal to give pic I drew of a character on a napkin to someone for free? No.""
Well, yes, that is in fact illegal. Copyright law is stupid.

A fan-made film based on the successful Power Rangers films and television series has draw the ire of Saban Brands, the Hollywood company that owns the franchise.

Yet another reason to never buy Samsung - inserting ads into your own media playback, sending your conversations to unknown third parties... I haven't trusted them with software ever since I got burned with their faulty linux drivers for the SCX4200 printer that introduced a security vulnerability because incompetence.

This must be the owner of the white Telsa Model S I saw at the farmers market the other week - surely we don't have multiple white model S's already?

Unlike many Canberrans, Margaret and Michael Thompson never lie awake at night worrying about petrol prices.
