So +Malcolm Turnbull reckons he's serious about cyber security , but he wants to continue using one of the most insecure operating systems available?

Microsoft Windows based operating systems are notoriously insecure and many Government computers even still run Windows XP!

If +Malcolm Turnbull was truly concerned about cyber security, he should start by replacing every Government computer with one running a Linux based operating system (such as Ubuntu)...

Otherwise, the Australian Government still has one awfully big chink in its armour, irrespective of how much it spends!

So rather than simply changing the law to outlaw discrimination against same-sex marriages... The Government wants to spend $525m to give people a choice on whether to discriminate or not?

Please tell me I'm not the only one that thinks this is completely retarded?

It makes me wonder how these guys even get a job in politics, especially when the Government is forever whinging it doesn't have any money...

A PLEBISCITE on marriage equality is not only a massive waste of taxpayer money but is helping perpetuate a wave of hate against gay, lesbian and transgender people.

This is the future of mobile devices...

I'm not convinced that "regular" computers will be going away anytime soon, but +Ubuntu's "one device, multiple forms/uses" concept is most certainly the future of mobile devices (i.e. smartphones, phablets and tablets).

Check it out, because this is pretty impressive, even more so when you stop to consider that this isn't even the finished product!

Australians travelling to New Zealand no longer have to worry about exorbitant roaming fees, or even paying a daily fee, with news that Vodafone is making its usual AU$5 Roaming charge free for trips to NZ.

Thinking about a holiday to New Zealand? Or maybe you're a regular visitor?

If you're with +Vodafone Australia, you won't need to worry about roaming fees anymore... It's free, and you can use your cell phone just like you would at home!

Vodafone today announced that it will no longer charge its Australian customers roaming fees when they travel to New Zealand. The offer effectively waives the AUD$5 per day Vodafone bills customers wh..

So whilst I was walking to work today, I took this photo of +McDonald's Australia Elizabeth...

At the top of the flag-pole is the Maccas flag, crumpled-up on the ground is the Australian flag and there was no McDonald's staff members anywhere in sight!

Disgraceful, especially with military bases in such close proximity...

Awesome, it looks like +Square Enix might finally be bringing some of their games to +Linux-based operating systems, such as +Steam OS and +Ubuntu...

Starting with the 2013 version of +Tomb Raider!

Let's hope this is not the last game +Square Enix bring to +Linux-based operating systems... I'd love to be able to play Rise of the +Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy VII on a Steam Machine!

Looks like the 2013 game Tomb Raider is heading to SteamOS & Linux according to new information popping up on SteamDB.

Story
Tagline
All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.
Introduction
My name is Greg and I am a fun-loving, urban cowboy from the Gold Coast (Queensland, Australia), with a deep love of music and gaming. Further to this, I am unashamedly a big, BIG fan of pretty much everything Disney (including the films!), with a passion for anything related to computers, telecommunications and technology in general.

I am also a passionate advocate of Open Source projects - such as Linux-based operating systems (like Ubuntu and SteamOS). Where possible, I try to contribute to Open Source projects (such as MusicBrainz and OpenStreetMaps) as much as I can.

Twitter is my primary social network these days, but every so often I pop-in to Google+ for something different... If you want to follow me on Twitter though, head over here.
Bragging rights
I grew up in a circus; walked from the Gold Coast to Sydney (and skateboarded back!); sung at the (Sydney) Opera House and in the professional production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat".
