• Is Network Co. the way to go?

    Probably the most interesting thing to come out of Malcolm Turnbull’s speech at the National Press Club yesterday was the idea that the coalition, given the opportunity, would separate Telstra and transfer the wholesale assets to a new “Network Co”.

  • Good summary of the MeeGo ecosystem

    Finnish blogger and mobile Linux developer Henri Bergius has written a nice summary of what MeeGo is and how it’s not just a Linux-based OS, but an entire ecosystem. It makes me wonder how long it will be before a large handset or tablet maker will start shipping it in big numbers.

    I received my first correspondence from Sony since the great compromise of last month in the form of a password reset notification e-mail. Should we follow our phishing instincts and click on the link or attempt to change the password on our own time?
