On the show today, rumors are plentiful this week with a reported in the Australian Newspaper that the debt laden Nine Entertainment has emerged as a wildcard potential acquisition target for Telstra, reviving memories of the telco's failed bid for Kerry Packer's Publishing & Broadcasting group 12 years ago.
As well this week, Microsoft allowed us all to download a prerelease version of its new flagship operating system, Windows 8 ahead of schedule. According to the AFACT, Australians will continue to illegally download copyrighted material despite the availability of local, legal access to that material while Adam speaks to a company that has bettered its product due to people using it illegally. And have you ever wondered what sort of bandwidth the internet consume by 2016? That's only 4 years away.

This week's app of the week:
Android: DroidVPN - NOTE: This app only works on rooted devices.
Unblock regional internet restrictions and browse the web anonymously. DroidVPN is an easy to use VPN software for android devices. DroidVPN helps users to unblock regional internet restrictions, web filtering, bypass firewalls, and browse the web anonymously by tunneling all your internet traffic from your android device to our servers.
What separates DroidVPN from other VPN Applications is it can tunnel your traffic through ICMP(IP over ICMP). This means you can browse the internet even if you are only allowed to send ping requests and internet browsing is blocked on your firewall.
