On the show today, it looks like Optus, the AFL and NRL have had their final day in court - or have they?
Talk about putting Australian copyright laws into absolute chaos!

Senator Stephen Conroy signs off on inquiry into why Aussies pay more for apps, music and movies than other countries. It's TPGs turn to eye the wrath of the regulator in relation to advertising ‘500 free VoIP minutes' as part of a broadband bundle plan. As well, the cloud storage wars ignite with Google unveiling its drop box and Microsoft upping it's free quota, and maybe next time you fly with Qantas, you may pick up a iPad at the same time you pick up your headphones, as the company has flagged tablet devices like the iPad as an alternative to costly in-flight entertainment systems.

There's gaming news with Leena Van Deventer as well as the usual odd spot, gadget, app and website of the week as well.

iPhone: Top Secret Audio Recorder

Record conversations, meetings, lectures, and more even when you’re not in the room! Schedule recordings with the advanced sound detection feature to avoid recording long periods of silence. Secure your top secret recordings with a passcode!

You can also record after putting your phone into sleep mode. Even if someone touches your iPhone while it’s recording to “awaken” the screen, they’ll immediately be prompted to input your security code. When you want an audio recorder that would make James Bond envious, look no further than Top Secret Audio.
