Can renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon crack the code of Battlefront 2’s monetisation strategy before time runs out?

Amazon Australia opens tomorrow 

Uber pays off hackers to conceal data breach of 57 million users

Apple’s HomePod smart speaker delayed until 2018

EA removes all in-game purchases from Star Wars Battlefront II on the eve of its launch

It appears Amazon Australia’s first retail operations centre will be located in the outer south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, with warehouse job vacancies currently being advertised for Dandenong South.

There are currently eight other Amazon Australia positions advertised for Dandenong South, including loss prevention manager (security), studio manager (product photography), public relations manager and area managers (front-line supervisors).

Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie!!!

So long Gerry.

I don’t think I’ve worked out where my ‘creepy threshold’ sits for passive listening devices yet.
