Europe says no to data retention, so why is it an option in Australia?
There has been plenty of technology-related legal activity in the European Union this month. Last week the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) ruled that data retention regulations, as they currently stand, are not in accordance with EU law and the European Parliament voted in favour of introducing net neutrality into EU telecoms regulation the week before.

As Australia is currently in the midst of a data retention inquiry – the second in three years – what effects will this ruling have on the debate?

Smell your updates with Scentee
Strawberry-scented emails, coffee-flavoured Facebook likes and a rosemary alarm: the Scentee is a curious new means of communication. Controlled by a free app, the small device plugs into your phone or tablet’s headphone jack and shoots out an aromatic vapour whenever you receive a notification. The device can also be used as a scented alarm clock.

Cradle Your Device - Tom Brosseau
Tom Brosseau possesses one of the most arresting voices in folk music today. Many people who hear him sing, without knowing his name or face, assume the voice belongs to a woman, as he hovers somewhere around the countertenor range, with an unusually pure tone.

Pulitzer Awarded to The Guardian and Washington Post for Coverage on Snowden's NSA Leaks
The Guardian and the Washington Post have been awarded the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for their reporting on the NSA surveillance that the leaked documents from Edward Snowden brought to light.
[...]
"Each one of these awards just provides further vindication that what [Snowden] did in coming forward was absolutely the right thing to do and merits gratitude, and not indictments and decades in prison," Greenwald said in regard tot he Polk Award, according to a report from Democracy Now!

"None of us would be here … without the fact that someone decided to sacrifice their life to make this information available," Poitras added. "And so this award is really for Edward Snowden."

Thanks for your feedback +Zenobius Jiricek  However, this is just the supplementary Vine video to the post: http://www.vintuitive.com/send-to-trash/  The posts give a real life scenario, and always have several approaches, each closing with it's own philosophical message from the Tao Te Ching.

Turkey moves to block YouTube access after 'audio leak'
Turkey has moved to block access to YouTube, a day after a court ordered the suspension of a ban on Twitter, which PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan backed.

The telecoms authority (TIB) said it had taken an "administrative measure" against the site but another report suggests that talks are under way.

Some users found access blocked while others could still use the site.

Earlier, what appeared to be a leaked audio recording of Turkish officials discussing Syria appeared on YouTube.
