What Did I Talk About On Radio – W/C 5th May – Updated

Internet Explorer Vulnerability

Microsoft have patched the vulnerability however:

  • Were you able to install it?
  • Did Windows update work to patch it ?

If not you are in trouble.
They even patched it for Windows XP, which is wrong as you should not be using IE on Windows XP , you should be using Google Chrome.
It is quiet safe to download Google Chrome through Internet Explorer 


There appears to be a crackdown on piracy coming with the Federal Government looking to implement measures as early as this week
There are 2 options they are looking at :
•    A 3 strike for copyright infringers then litigation, charges and removal from the isp
•    Blocking pirate sites 
Google have come out and said that the answer to all this is a pricing and availability. 
It is a new business model that needs to be implemented as the music industry has adopted.
In Australia we don’t have the options such as Netflix etc where we can see the shows the same or the next day as they do in other countries.

Google : Australian Piracy Is An Availability And Pricing Problem

if you have an issue in your Facebook news feed with items that you find offensive or tasteless you can report these photos and videos to Facebook 
Click on the top right hand side where the downward arrow is and you will see “ I don’t want to see this “

Click on that and “resolve a problem” will appear 

If you then click ” I think it shouldn’t be on Facebook “it will take you to a list of reasons and then you can explain to Facebook why and report it – the more who do this the better it gets
