WIFI For Adelaide City
In theory i am looking forward to this but there are a lot of questions first.
- Too many on the network will decrease speed
- Will there be a time limit on it
- Will it be speed limited
Worse case it maybe like McDonalds Wifi - nice idea but pig slow

Businesses Having Their Customers Credit Details Stolen
The strong advice was making sure your security software was up to date , I would add in that they should have kept their operating systems up to date first.
There was some good advice from the Australian Federal Police
"Credit cards should be kept in a secure place, ATMS should be checked for any unusual attachments, personal details, including PIN numbers, should be protected, financial statements should be checked continuously, mail boxes should be secured and, if possible, chip and pin security implemented on credit cards.
"These arrests are also a timely reminder that all small businesses need to check they have the correct security measures in place, look to upgrade their systems and use strong passwords so they minimise the risk of data compromises."

How to avoid fake e-cards
- Spelling mistakes -- e.g. congratulation! Or your name is misspelled.
- Errors in the message -- e.g. it says you sent a card, not received one
- Beware of vague labels such as “co-worker,” “family member” - or no name at all - in ecard notification emails
- Legitimate ecard sites will always include the sender’s first and last name in this type of email.
- Even if a full name is provided, delete any ecard notification emails from senders you don’t recognize.
- Don’t be fooled by an authentic looking email from a reputable ecard company. Scammers have become quite skillful at replicating bona fide correspondence from established sites you know and trust. (But do pay attention to tell-tale typos and grammatical errors that may look fishy.)
- If you’re at all in doubt, do not click on the site link-back to retrieve the ecard in question. Instead, go to the real ecard site directly (not via the link), find the pick-up area on the site, and manually type your ecard retrieval information. (Do not copy/paste any information from the link, as this may take you to the rogue site you’re trying to avoid.) If no card awaits you, the email was a hoax.
