@kcarruthers Actually, I think Taiga should do a book on road safety, or a healthy diet book.

@NewtonMark @j_hutch Heh. True, but last time I contradicted a presenter on-air that harshly they went into a huge sulk. Not worth it.

@NewtonMark @j_hutch I’ve had to correct at least one interviewer about the copper and the duct lease thing before a radio spot.

@NewtonMark As I said to @j_hutch, that belief is strong Out There. Dunno where it came from, but the punters believe. Even some media.

@j_hutch The NBN-is-buying-copper meme is strong amongst the punters. I hear it on talkback and in pub conversations. Dunno its origins.

Sorry, that’s most unfair. Everyone knows it’s Tony who ‘shrooms up on those long, lonely bike rides in the pine forests.

@PocketwareApps I feel that I may bore readers with another article about privacy this week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PocketwareApps

@PocketwareApps I do not mean to single out this one app. It is very common for apps to ask for vastly more permissions than they need.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PocketwareApps

Hang on, I’ve been doing some other things. What am I meant to be angry about now?

via Janetter for Mac

@PocketwareApps Nor would I install an app whose privacy policy is in a language I can’t read. A flashlight’s job is light, full stop.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PocketwareApps

@PocketwareApps A flashlight doesn’t need network access, the ability to take photos, or to test access to protected storage. It’s a switch.

@wgwau I agree all that’s tough, but it’s also just what’s happening everywhere. Geelong’s special treatment is galling.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to wgwau

@wgwau … and I think it reflects at least some views outside the subsidised magic land of the auto industry. Their jobs went, like others.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to wgwau

@wgwau Because there’s almost nothing in what you said that indicates people talking responsibility for their own future…
