On the show today, Hackers are doing what they do best and Last week it was ASIO's turn, along with one of the world's biggest game developers, Blizzard.
Using data to send voice on a telephony service isn't new, and in the United States and Korea, we're starting to see voice over LTE usage rise, (that's the new 4G technology now being rolled out by local carriers) but according to local telco's, it's still a couple of years off here in Australia.
Also this week, Google cops a whopper of a fine for mixing cookies with Safari, and the ACCC cracks down on Wi-Fi ready TVS.
Also Apple tightens it's policies after the Mat Honan's hack last week, which is Adam's View from the couch this week. Should we all panic or is this just a storm in a tea cup.
Last week, a hacker got into Mat Honan's Apple account, remotely erased the data on his iPhone, iPad and MacBook, deleted his Google account, commandeered his Twitter account, and then posted a string of nasty stuff under Honan's name. You can read more about it and drawyour own conlusions.
