It's ironic that we now live in a world of mass social media, but often individually, we feel more isolated from each other than ever before... 😔

The Government's data retention scheme looks set to pass the Senate this week with Labor's support.

This scheme is rushed, costly, ineffective, and against the public interest. Also, absurdly, the flawed legislation leaves open numerous loopholes, which can be used to evade the scheme. This means the data retention dragnet will capture the data of innocent Australians and cost millions of dollars, while allowing those who don't want to be caught to remain hidden.

On Wednesday 25 March, Australians are planning an online protest against data retention to show just how ineffective the invasive scheme will be.

Add your name to the list of people pledging to go dark against data retention. 
On 25 March, I'm going dark against to stand against the Government's draconian data retention scheme will be. Will you join me?

Apple's obsession with thinness and lightness is getting out of hand! They've compromised too much to achieve this goal in the new MacBook. A one port computer is utterly ridiculous! They've ditched the brilliant MagSafe power connector and ditched the Lightning fast ThunderBolt connector for a 3rd rate compromise in much slower USB 3.1 speed? WTF! Apple better not do this to their MacBook Pro line!

Granted, I was impressed by the new keyboard and the potential of the new trackpad, and the feat of engineering in miniaturising the logic board and the innovation in battery technology... But all these things have simply been diminished by the sheer lack of understanding or care for how people will actually use these computers. We need to plug things in and we don't want to lug around half a dozen adapters to do so and we don't want to spend a fortune on those freek'n adapters either!

Until wireless power becomes a reality, and wireless data transfer truly rivals wired speeds we still need ports and lots of them!

The new MacBook is an EPIC FAIL in my book!

VPNs are great for security, but one of the big reasons many people use one is to mask or change their IP address. This lets you get around location-based restrictions on content, or check if your provider is throttling your connection. Unfortunately, a new security flaw can reveal your real IP address to prying eyes, even if you're using a VPN, and it's easy to exploit. Here's how it works, and what you can do about it.
