The Australian Minister Who Wants You Not To Download 'The LEGO Movie' Has Already Seen It In Australia
The LEGO Movie is awesome! Or at least, we think so. Everyone in the world will see it before one of the world’s most notorious pirate-happy nations (Australia, for those playing at home), which may very well lead to The LEGO Movie being the most downloaded film of the year. Attorney-General George Brandis wants you to stop downloading stuff, and plans to re-introduce three-strike laws to do it. Think he can empathise with you, the people, that Australia gets film and TV releases last? Don’t: turns out he’s already seen it.

Microsoft announced Windows Phone 8 today, complete with multi-core support, a new Start screen, native code sharing with its forthcoming Windows 8, a new Wallet feature for mobile payments, SD card support, more screen resolution support and IE 10.

Microsoft’s event today was long on promise and short on specs. RAM? We dunno. Processor speed? We dunno. Price? We dunno. Release date? We dunno. But even a very brief hands-on made something abundantly clear: it’s a super solid device and if Microsoft can deliver what it demoed, the iPad finally has a real competitor and Android has a big problem.
Dan Lyons, the guy who used to be Fake Steve Jobs, has a story today that asks, “Once upon a time we put a man on the moon. Now we pee our pants over retina displays. WTF happened to us?” The answer is really easy: We’re the same as we’ve always been. We love to watch things change.

Google Maps today announced it is rolling out offline maps for mobile and improving the 3D capabilities of its maps via aerial data. It’s a major overhaul, one that comes in the face of Google reportedly losing one of its biggest partners.
