Is it just me, or are Microsoft's servers melting under the demand for the Office 2016 for Mac preview?
Download Office for Mac Preview from here, and you will receive updates automatically until the official release in the second half of 2015.

Fraud on Apple Pay is identity-theft based, so banks and Apple Pay must work together.

Looks like VMware has some explaining to do:

The Software Freedom Conservancy provides a non-profit home and services to Free, Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) projects.

This is pretty eye-opening, and paints a bleak portrait of the USA government:

Thanks. And I agree with you--I don't know which is worse either. But I think you have to put the moron in when the tyrant get rolling... ;^)

I may have just found my replacement for the D-Link Boxee Box. Assuming this has Australian availability one day...
Gaming-focused set-top box coming in early May with support for 60 fps 4K video.

Huh. The Atom RPM (for RedHat / Fedora) is the the smallest version, with the OS X and Windows versions being the largest.

The TP-Link Archer C7 is fast, reliable, and at $100, it's also affordable.

Windows 10 has the best cmd.exe yet, but it's still such a huge context switch for my brain when I hop from Linux / OSX over to Windows.

It has been 0 days since an SSL vulnerability was discovered... :S
Bug forces millions of sites to use easily breakable key once thought to be dead.

In light of DirectX 12 and Vulkan (glNext), AMD's Mantle becomes a testing ground for future graphics APIs. Mantle's effect on the landscape has been successful, no need to wear out its welcome beyond that.

Introduction
I'm a technology enthusiast, and I believe fiercely in open source.
I describe myself on Twitter as a "JavaScript jockey, Google fan, Android apologist". I admire hardware designed by Apple and Sony, although Google and Microsoft tend to have much better online services.

I find software development very satisfying, with web technology being particularly fast-paced and exciting.

Decent service, but I would have felt like a valued customer if staff followed up. Why don't they want more of my money?

This might be the best Japanese cuisine in Gosford, and perhaps even the whole Central Coast.
