On the show today, it looks like the flashback security scare has shattered the myth of the in penetrable Mac, as Adam Turner will tell us about shortly. Apple, up until now has lived a relatively virus free life, but as their gadgets are now more widely in use, how will the worlds most valued company look after their customer base with an ever increasing threat of computer nasties?
Also today, the iiNet and AFACT row has reached its penultimate conclusion with a ruling in the High Court of Australia last week. There are no further avenues of appeal, so what now for ISPs and Content owners?
As well, there's more news on the pending release of Microsoft's Windows 8, scheduled for later this year, and would you use a website that allowed you to spruik odd jobs around your house, and have volunteers come your door to complete them for a small fee? Well, such a site has now been launched in Melbourne and Sydney, and we'll hear more about that later in the show when Tim Fung, CEO and founder of airtasker.com joins the panel live in the studio. Airtasker is a community marketplace where people can outsource everyday tasks and errands to friendly and reliable people.
