Radio station I listen to seemed to be seriously reporting that Bathurst fans would be able to speed up their favourite drivers by affecting their engine through a smartphone app in a drive to increase social interaction.

Strangely enough, I seem to recall this is actually available in Formula E. (So, like all good AFs, there is a grain of truth buried somewhere)

Apparently The Edge radio station ran all their programming 10 minutes early - so the 8am news came on at 7:50 - to freak out people listening on the car radios on the way to work.

Email to all staff saying that on average we spend too long travelling between our offices and that they're launching a shuttle service with a spare helicopter.

Master filters are actually GCSB listening devices.





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
