Tech Industry gives budget a measured tick
Last night's budget announcements gave some promise to the Australian ICT sector but there were some mixed responses with concerns of the lack of a complete plan to develop the digital industry.

*************************
Australian Computer Society:
“More needs to be done, particularly in education, in order for Australia to remain competitive and prosperous in today’s fast-paced digital economy" 

*************************
Cloud service specialist Bulletproof:
“While there could arguably be some negativity around the cuts to the entrepreneurs infrastructure program, the effect of the other measures in stimulating private sector activity will significantly offset this reduction.” 

*************************
StartupAUS:
“Despite an encouraging move by the government to back small business, this year’s budget does not address the needs of a vital part of Australia’s economy: its tech start-up ecosystem,

StartupAUS is pleased to see moves by the Government to support crowdsourced equity funding and to fix the tax treatment of employee share schemes. We also applaud financial measures that make it easier for Australians to start new companies.

However, we believe an overall strategy is needed to accelerate the growth of Australia’s tech sector and to bring Australia in line with the rest of the world when it comes to supporting start-ups.”

Edward Snowden says Australia’s new data retention laws are 'dangerous'
Whistleblower says mass surveillance did not stop the Sydney siege, the Boston marathon bombings or the Charlie Hebdo magazine attack in Paris
[...]
“Australia’s role in mass surveillance around the world is similar to the UK and the Tempora program,” Snowden said via satellite from Moscow.

“They’ll collect everyone’s communications, it’s called pre-criminal investigation, which means they are watching everyone all the time. They can search through that information not just in Australia but also share with overseas governments such as the US and UK. And it happens without oversight.”

Facebook posts disappearing: Company says security bug to blame for missing content
Facebook says security issues are to blame for some users being prevented from updating their statuses and posting photos and videos over the last 24 hours.
[...]
Facebook says it is currently "trying to identify the bug" which it says is a problem from its end, not a user-network issue.

"There is a security bug with Facebook that is removing posts (seemingly from the last 24 hours and page posts today) as well as a second issue with links not working properly," it said in statement.

Australian government announces crackdown on tax avoidance by Apple, others
The so-called "crackdown" was announced by the government in a press conference held in Sydney on Monday, as reported by Reuters. Australia's treasurer, Joe Hockey, told the press that major companies are "diverting profits earned in Australia away" from the country to avoid paying local taxes.
[...]
One analysis issued last week said that if the E.U. were to impose the worst-possible scenario, it could reduce Apple's annual earnings by 10 percent.

Keyboard Kung Fu
It's time for some revision and testing! How are your keyboard skills?  
Are you a Grasshopper, Master, or Sage?
A man may know the world without leaving his own home.
Through his windows he can see the supreme Tao.
- Chapter 47, Tao Te Ching.

Keyboard Kung Fu: Finer Volume Control #kbkungfu   #mac   #tips  
Sometimes you need to get the volume just a bit lower than the first notch. Is that even possible? It certainly is! All you need is a little Keyboard Kung Fu know-how:

What is looked at but not seen, Is named the extremely dim.
What is listened to but not heard, Is named the extremely faint.

GooglePlus Starts Tweeting After Sitting Dormant for Four Years
Nearly every key Google product has its very own Twitter account. Google Drive, Android, the Nexus program, even Google Glass all have their own Twitter accounts to keep fans up to date on product news, tips and tricks, and occasional random foolishness. Even Google+ — the social network, community, and photo-sharing space that's never quite caught on in the way the company hoped for — has its own Twitter account. An account that has lay dormant for the nearly four years that have gone by since Google+ launched. Until today.

Suddenly, the Google+ Twitter account has come alive, asking the "Twitterverse" to give some love for its #firstTweet. There are also a bunch of individual replies to Twitter users, each containing a GIF. It's not a bad strategy — no one's going to get mad at a corporate Twitter account for throwing some GIFs your way.

Why start tweeting now?
