Donna returned this week with Mark and Michael and fellow JOYster Jono. News was in the News with Google removing all links to Spanish newspapers from its News site to comply with a recent law that forces aggregators to pay if they display text from a newspaper.  New dating app Scissr expands the availability of options for Lesbians wishing to connect with other women.

The Sony Pictures hack continues to make news, with threats of violence against the screening of the movie The Interview behind the cancellation of its release. The US Government is officially pointing the finger at North Korea and news sources continue to report on details of leaked documents. Sands Casino in Las vegas was also attacked earlier this year by Iranian hacktivists following anti-Iran remarks by the the Casino’s CEO.

Microsoft is now accepting Bitcoin to top up your Microsoft Wallet and the NBN has reached new agreements with Telstra and Optus to take ownership of existing copper and cable infrastructure instead of scrapping it.  Telstra is also in the running to maintain these networks on an ongoing basis.

The Technogaze team wish everyone a Happy Holiday!
