Story 2

Australia says it can hack enemies as it invests $230 million in cyber security

Mashable reports the Australian government is watching and has the means to launch a cyber attack. On Thursday, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull introduced a massive A$230 million cash injection to arm the country for cyber security issues and deal with online threats it is facing, including cyber war and internal whistleblowers. Within the new Internet strategy, pushed down to page 28, the government also makes clear it has the capabilities to launch a cyber attack if necessary. “Australia’s defensive and offensive cyber capabilities enable us to deter and respond to the threat of cyber attack,” the report reads. “Any measure used by Australia in deterring and responding to malicious cyber activities would be consistent with our support for the international rules based order and our obligations under international law.”

Hardware Updates

Apple Updates Its Thinnest MacBook

added Rose Gold

The MacBook is identical in design to the 2015 MacBook, but it includes a faster SSD, improved Skylake processor with better graphics, longer battery life, and a new Rose Gold color option. Many of the reviews focus on these improvements while also calling out missing features that many were hoping for, including an increased number of USB-C ports, Thunderbolt 3, and an improved FaceTime camera.

Engadget’s Dana Wollman says Apple’s claim of 25 percent better graphics performance and extra battery life “are indeed accurate.” With the SSD in the 1.2GHz 512GB machine, Wollman saw read/write speeds of 947MB/s and 845MB/s, respectively, significantly improved over the 738.2 and 451.7MB/s speeds of the year-ago model.

AND makes MacBook Airs 8Gb only

Story 5

Google annoys entire TV industry

Not content with grabbing ad dollars from TV networks across the world, Google went a step further by announcing that the adverts it serves on YouTube are better at convincing watchers to buy stuff.

In a report seen by the Guardian, Matt Brittin, Google’s head honcho in Europe says that 80 percent of the time, YouTube ads were more effective than TV ads.
