Raj Deut and Anthony Agius discuss how Dick Smith are selling customer info, the NBN’s ability to reduce fibre costs by 50% but not tell anyone, a flaw in 65% of Android phones that leave them vulnerable to clickjacking malware, Twitter Moments, Apple’s Twitter support and rumours of new Apple gear on March 22nd.
Join Lauren Watson, Raj Deut, and Anthony Agius as we discuss how badly the NBN is failing to reach its own lowball targets, how Apple continues to stick it to the FBI, how corrupt the Victorian Department of Education was in awarding the Ultranet contract, Xiaomi’s new flagship Mi 5 and finally pick at the rotting carcass that is Dick Smith Electronics.
Renai LeMay at Delimiter:
Today I write to let the Delimiter community know two things: Firstly, Delimiter will cease publishing new articles on Friday 5th July. And secondly, I have a new job.
Aw man. This is a huge loss for the Australian technology journalism scene.
I’m certainly a fan of Delimiter. Renai’s dedication to documenting the Australian technology landscape, the eloquence of his writing, and his willingness to call it as he saw it. We didn’t always see eye-to-eye, but he’s definitely been an inspiration to me.
I know he’ll do well in his new role as Parliamentary Business and Communications Advisor to Senator Scott Ludlam.
To put it lightly, it’s been a rough year for Australians who want to see improvements to the state of our national broadband, the tech startup scene, and the entire Australian digital industries sector. I think it’ll be great to have a strong voice like Renai’s in the political arena advocating for positive change.
Good luck Renai, and thanks for all your excellent work over the last 10 years.
