Murdoch Block! Get Rid of News Corp From Your Browsing Life

Murdoch Block

Are you sick of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp and the incredibly biased reporting it lets loose upon the gullible folks of the world? Not sure where to start? Perhaps this Chrome Extension is for you. Murdoch Block, currently rated 4.73 stars out of five on the Chrome Web Store, provides a humorous “blocking” when your browser navigates to a website owned, operated, or controlled by the evil empire of sensationalisation and bias, News Corp. Perhaps this paragraph, is, ironically also biased – against News Corp – but forgive me for being a little annoyed at Murdoch’s heavy-handed puppeteering of the…

Man Publishes Emails After ‘Betrayal’ Over Backing the Crowdfunded Console OUYA

image.png

The guys behind the OUYA, a gaming console that was funded entirely thanks to a crowdfund project on website KickStarter have given the launch of the Android-powered console quite a few ups and downs, with an Australian man claiming he’s been the victim of terrible support after failing to receive the early console and that his investment in the funding project has been pushed aside. As an early and loyal company backer, the string of emails evidencing that show incompetence – he has now published online. He was guaranteed to have the unit within 55 days. It has now been…

Rupert Murdoch Against Labor Party and Faster Internet Connections for Commercial Interests Says PM Kevin Rudd

BQ-v9iXCIAAvUgv.jpg-large.jpg

Just a day after the 2013 election was called, Murdoch’s News Corp Australia Daily Telegraph began its election coverage with a picture of Rudd and the banner headline: “Now you finally have a chance to kick this mob out.” Despite fresh scandals over the behaviour of his UK news organisations, media mogul Rupert Murdoch exercises significant supremacy through his empire in Australia with PM Kevin Rudd accusing Murdoch of using his monopoly as a biased force against the Labor party. Kevin Rudd has claimed that Murdoch’s primary reasons for backing Abbot in the upcoming election are more to do with…

Australia’s Expensive Businesses That Expect You to Support Them Over the Cheaper, Foreign-Owned Alternatives.

clip_image002.png

What’s important to you when it comes to shopping? Is it that you get a good bang for your buck or is it that you are supporting your economy and local farmers? I, personally, living in Australia see multitudes of people complain about products that aren’t made or owned by Australian companies. For example: I was at a fruit store the other week and an elderly lady was outspokenly committed to warn people away from the Californian oranges as they were imported. Out loud; she said “you are un-Australian if you do not buy Australian groceries” Naturally, my internal response…

Customers Lash Out as Adobe Announces New Cloud Subscription-Only Future

gay.png

Are Adobe committing suicide with their new ‘mandatory subscription only’ model for the tools of choice (Photoshop, Dreamweaver etc.) for so many industries? With a Facebook page full of disappointment from loyal users and multiple petitions demanding Adobe to re-think their plans – Adobe has annoyed many freelancers and designers (such as yours truly) with accusations of greed and capitalising on people already struggling during this economy. Adobe is expecting users to enter a forced 12 month commitment, but the user owns nothing. You’re not buying the Adobe suite of applications; you’re renting them. Your applications WILL be installed on…

BT, Sky, Virgin, O2 Amongst ISP’s Blocking Torrent Sites

H33T.png

So far a High Court verdict has enforced mandatory censorship for major internet service providers BT, Sky, Virgin Media, O2, EE and TalkTalk. The sites in question that have been blocked are The Pirate Bay, KickAss Torrents (KAT), Fenopy and H33T.   Earlier this month, Torrentfreak reported that the fantasy action series “Game of Thrones” was the most pirated television program. This triggered a rather welcoming response from HBO’s programming president Michael Lombardo who considered the statistics as a compliment, especially as Game of Thrones was the network’s best-selling DVD season release of 2012.   “The demand is there. And…

The Catholic Church: Hypocrisy, Corruption, Money and Power.

Pope-Gold-Pearls.jpg

As we sift through the daily papers and figure that all the world’s mainstream media are suddenly either Catholic or fascinated about reporting the Vatican’s new series “Pope X-Factor” (no, not really, but it’s a good idea) – one thing stands out the most. Black smoke = no pope. Whilst the entire population of Pope Loyalists focus on these ‘important’ times, I’ve been focusing on the irritating truth that the Catholic Church has always possessed gold, riches and the supposed authority to act on behalf of some form of higher being. I do not care for the Catholic Church, or…

SimCity Game’s Anti-Piracy Measures Cause Upset Forcing Amazon to Take Action.

simcity_down_660.jpg

The highly anticipated release of PC game SimCity has been met with unanimous condemnation over its anti-piracy measures. The game requires players to be connected to the internet to play the game and if that’s not enough of a deterrent, if the servers are full or undergoing maintenance then you’re shit out of luck. SimCity, the first release of the archetypal city-building simulator in 10 years, has now been made ‘unavailable’ through online retailing giant Amazon.com Players are finding that the servers are being overloaded and therefore aren’t saving their game progress. Anyone who genuinely purchased the game is confronted…

Nearly $2 Trillion on Arms in One Year, Nearly $195 Billion on Space Exploration in 40

images.jpg

You can blame the rising debts of governments all around the world on multiple factors, but one thing will always stand out: the money spent on wars, arms and obtaining natural resources such as oil could have been put to better use. Whilst many will strike back at these particulars, there is no denying that “defending the world from terrorists” has cost more than just lives and money. Brazilian professor Thomas Lewinsohn has renewed the theory that we know less about Earth than we assume, with his estimate that an enormous amount of the Earth’s projected 13 million species are…

UK Passes Same-Sex Marriage Bill

gay-marriage-729-620x349.jpg

The UK has officially joined the handful of countries enabling Gay Marriage to be officially recognised after much debate between religious and conservative groups. The Marriage Bill – often referred to as the Same Sex Couples Bill – will enable same-sex couples to marry in both civil and religious ceremonies. Couples who have previously entered into civil partnerships can now translate their relationship into a government-recognised marriage. There have been multiple comments throughout the debate with Roger Gale even calling the bill ‘Orwellian’ but Prime Minister David Cameron stands strong behind the bill claiming it will make the UK stronger….
