Aussie musician, comedian, actor and composer Tim Minchin is defying Covid by planning a tour of New Zealand - and even more bravely, the UK. His tour will include work from his first studio album “Apart Together”, which, while being perfectly named for 2020, was written before Covid really hit.  It's a return of 2019’s sell-out visit to our shores and it’s called “BACK”,  billed as “Old Songs, New Songs, F*** You Songs”.

Ransomware attacks draw headlines when they take down major operations: hospitals, cities and most recently, a US fuel pipeline. Not only do cybercriminals scam businesses demanding large sums of money or they'll wreak havoc on their computer systems, this week's gas shortages showed how it can also have broader impacts.
But ransomware against individuals — specifically, anyone who uses the internet — can also be very damagi...

When I was a kid, one of the greatest treats in my life was to be allowed to stay up and watch TV with my mum and dad. It didn’t happen all that often. It might surprise you, given I’ve spent half my life working in TV, to know that we weren’t really a big TV family.
My parents liked what they liked and disliked pretty much everything else. And instead of trying new stuff, they would get a VHS and record their favourite programmes, ...

Trump is forced to stay off Facebook & Instagram for now
