Something up with Apple? | Nov 07, 2006 09:56
Russell Brown's Hard News

My guess is this means something: staff at Renaissance, the New Zealand agent for Apple Computer, have been asked to hand back their addresses. A quick whois reveals that the domain details were last modified on October 7 - and that the "date billed until" is November 7: today...,

Damian Christie - Cracker With Attitude

Disclaimer: The following post never claims to be "journalism". Keep your pants on. While I'm sure being a politician or a doctor or a spy or something probably involves traversing a few ethical dilemmas, other than a brief period working for the Uzbekistani Secret Police (hey it was Victoria University...,

Philip Temple: Hang On A Minute, Mate
Peter Dunne quietly omits some salient facts when arguing for retention of MMP’s coat-tailing provision that allows a party to add list seats if it wins one electorate and achieves more than 1% or so of the party vote... More>>

Cheap Grace And Climate Change: Australia And COP26

It was not for everybody, but the shock advertising tactics of the Australian comedian Dan Ilic made an appropriate point. Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison, a famed coal hugger, has vacillated about whether to even go to the climate conference in Glasgow. Having himself turned the country’s prime ministerial office into an extended advertising agency, Ilic was speaking his language... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Funeral Rites For COVID Zero

It began just after a news interview. Time: a quarter past nine. Morning of September 22, and yet to take a sip from the brewed Turkish coffee, its light thin surface foam inviting. The Australian city of Melbourne in its sixth lockdown, its residents fatigued and ravaged by regulations. Rising COVID-19 numbers, seemingly inexorable... More>>
