Things I wish I knew about setting up my iPhone 6s

When it comes to technology, there are early adopters (ie those mad people who will stand in the rain outside a store for days to get their fix) and what I like to call normal people.

I am usually one of the last people in my peer group to get the latest It Phone. To illustrate, I was still using a Blackberry Bold long after the first iPhone was already growing barnacles.

Australia Passes Data Retention Laws

Australia’s Federal Parliament has passed it’s controversial data retention laws, with both major political parties voting in the legislation. The new laws will force telcos to keep records of phone and internet use for two years and allow security agencies access the records.

Telcos already retain the data, however at varying durations in an unregulated environment. Australia’s Attorney-General Senator George Brandis says the legislation – which passed through the senate with 43 votes to 16 – will strike the right balance.

The cost of retaining the information is set to be partly covered by the taxpayer in what the Government described as a “significant” contribution. There are concerns telecommunications companies will pass on the rest of the cost to consumers :: Read the full article »»»»

Outback Drone Pilot F#CKS With Wrong RooAussies are renowned for their fierce, often wild behavior, we’re splashed all over the international press for our drunken, violent behaviour with astounding regularity.

While the island nations human population might be banking on it macho reputation,  our faunal emblem it seems is no different, though possibly more justified in lashing-out.

Based on what we can glean from Australia’s other priceless cultural ambassador, Iggy Azalea, the roo was simply hooking into the traditional Aussie way of dealing with the paparazzi :: Read the full article »»»»

Posted: October 10th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Microsoft, Standout, Technoid Computer News, UPDATED! | Tags: , , , , | Comments Off on Microsoft’s NEW CEO Tells Women Not to Ask For a Pay Raise

Microsoft's NEW CEO Tells Women Not to Ask For a Pay RaiseThere’s a reason Microsoft left such a huge chasm between CEO’s – remember the hijinks of Steve B? and congratulations to new CEO Satya Nadella – it seems the folk that pick these people might need a little self reflection.

Having ranted all that, it seems the new CEO has done something we all thought unattainable, he’s made people give a f_ck about Microsoft for the first time in years.

Nadella achieved this emotional engagement by offering up the most misogynisticly deplorable advice to women in the workplace. Not since Australia’s Prime Minister advised women to dull-down their expectations has a man at the top uttered such fowl advice.

“I think it’d be folly to expect that women will ever dominate or even approach equal representation in large numbers, simply because their aptitudes, abilities and interests are different for physiological reasons” Tony Abbott

According to Nadella the female ‘confidence gap’ is a sham? Nadella made his pickled remarks on stage at an event to celebrate the marginalized accomplishments of women in the technology industry… Seriously?! :: Read the full article »»»»
