The IoT (Internet of Things) is coming and your car will be just one of them (maybe many because there are lots of onboard computers). Where will that data go? Who will own it? Will the policy be able to give you a speeding ticket without actually seeing you do it?

Old news but new research - consider not using artificial sweeteners as they may lead to a glucose intolerance.

This is cool - showing the utility of self-driving vehicles in restricted environments.

I wonder how much we (can't) trust the Australian government.

The violence in the middle east is abhorrent and ISIS are clearly a malevolent force. But just wandering in blindly now (well after there should have been a considered international response) - and considering our (global) failure to bring peace to the region (and even the creation of various groups by fiddling there in the first place) we should be very careful.

Personally, I'd like to see less money pumped into the next "Facebook" or whatever - and more on scientific research.

Human-induced climate change is real, people. Time we did some serious work on fixing the problem - us.

Interesting concept - more power and better fuel efficiency with less moving parts.

It's a pity the other parties are just as bad.

Two of them harm innocent people - the other, not so much. Unless you're the Australian movie studios in which case if you pirate a movies you're just as bad as a pedophile or terrorist.

Not in the same league, methinks. Probably time to stop the hyperbole.

NOT! CNN need a better security analyst. Someone who knows something would be a start.

At least our government wants some sort of high speed broadband - even if it isn't progressive enough to go for the newest technology. So the Liberal government aren't quite luddites - at least their ahead of Iran.

So the mainstream media gets all upset when other (Labour) politicians screw the taxpayer for a few hundred dollars in taxi fares - why not the same squealing when it is the PM? To admit that you created a media event just so you could go to a private party the night before is not only dishonest but probably illegal. And that's not to mention the $400-odd dollars in travel expenses - what about the rest of his entourage?

If you haven't read this web comic - you should. Very funny and has been running daily for over 10 years now. Definitely my favourite to read online.

When you've got conservative commentators telling you (Tony Abbott) you're doing it wrong there is definitely something wrong with what you're doing.

This is just a comic but I don't understand how Snapchat is worth multiples of billions of dollars when it has no way of making money.

No, really? And the government is listening to them, not the science.

Scary to think that Obama campaigned on the back of cleaning up Bush's mess - but hasn't done a lot of the big things he promised. Yes, there has been some marginal improvement but a lot of the big, behind-the-scenes stuff that happened with Bush still happens now.

Pity.

Our treatment of legitimate asylum seekers is distressing and inhumane.
