Well I'm not the intended recipient and I've read, copied and disclosed the contents of this email - come at me +UPS (maybe don't send info you want to keep secret to unverified email addresses in future - or at least remove the empty childish threats that makes you look stupid).

#NBNco  are starting their fixed wireless (LTE) 50Mbps/20Mbps service trials. I might have to trial that for a few months and see how it goes once +Internode start offering it.

The oldest occurrence of the word in adjectival form (which implies use of the verb) in English comes from the margins of a 1528 manuscript copy of Cicero's De Officiis. A monk had scrawled in the margin notes, "fuckin Abbot".

Having a look at the last 18 months of my electricity consumption and production data it seems clear I could disconnect from the grid if only I had a way of storing all the power I generate from my roof... Save us +Elon Musk, you're our only hope :)

+Dmitriy Bykov I know it will eventually but haven't worked it out. I really got the panels because it was the right thing to do. Sitting in an Australian summer with the sun beating down on your roof and the aircon on sucking power from the grid just seemed wrong.

Dear #RACV ,

I've tried to get you to stop sending me your ridiculous spam magazine multiple times and yet you keep sending it to me. It goes straight from my mailbox to the bin but I bet you include me in your "readership" statistics. Well now you can count me as one less customer.

Ugh, this is not good news at all. iiNet (and Internode) have been the only ISP in Australia standing up to the ridiculous MPAA (and their ilk) and have generally fought for their customers. TPG have always been conspicuously quiet on those issues and have been trying to build their own network to compete with the NBN (just plain dumb). If this sale goes through I'll be changing ISP.
Summary:TPG has announced that it plans to acquire Australia's third-largest internet service provider iiNet.

Ugh. Why is it when I say Ok Google, Play Music it starts randomly playing all my music? As a cloud service I dearly want it to continue the queue from where I left it regardless of device. Is there some setting for this I'm just unaware of?

+Philip Davis (Sorry to try to hijack the post +Scott Weston but) I love the sports in Google Now. One of (if not biggest) football codes in Australia is the AFL (Aussie Rules Footy). Why is it not available in Now? Is it Google need to implement it and haven't, or is it the Code stopping it? Would make so much sense!

Another good looking AndroidWear device.
It looks like Huawei is taking smartwatches very seriously. As spotted by Droid Life, two official promo videos for the "Huawei Watch" have accidentally been set live on YouTube ahead of the...
