Just three months after hacks by China’s People’s Liberation Army came to an abrupt halt, the country is once again attacking US targets, according to the New York Times.

With the news of Blacktown’s addition to the NBN this morning, one can’t help but wonder when their suburb will find itself plugged into the high-speed fibre network (if it continues as planned).

However, it seems the Australian public actually prefer Ruddy, if Kogan’s politician-themed TVs are anything to go by. Prepare yourself for the battle of the prime ministerial boob tubes!
