Not much to report here

The CeBit organisers have received complaints that the techie babes were too scantily clad this year. Sorry. Couldn’t resist the pun. http://www.itnews.com.au/News/175938,cebit-to-address-shortage-of-booth-babe-attire.aspx

Google Australia has iced its plans for a high-definition update to Street View

Google has stalled updates to its Street View mapping service until it has completed a review of its processes, in the wake of what Communications Minister Stephen Conroy labelled the “single greatest breach in the history of privacy”. http://www.itnews.com.au/News/175802,google-audits-systems-in-wake-of-wardriving-scandal.aspx

Shopping Trolley Education

In response to last week post on Kate Troup’s reaction to shopping trolley junk food, here is what Stepahine Messenger has to say: “I was amused about what Kate thinks to do when she sees shopping trollies loaded with rubbish. I actually used them as an educational tool when I shopped with my children. Showing my kids the rubbish and telling them right there and then what it will do to the human body. We also had a rule when shopping, if they wanted something - a product - they had to read the ingredients label - if there was anything they couldn’t pronounce, it went back on the shelf. This eliminated nearly everything except the basic, minimumally processed foods. Easy!”
