Telstra's launched what it's calling a 'dedicated' customer service presence on Facebook, as well as a trial version of My Telstra on Facebook, allowing customers to securely access their customer accounts via the popular social media portal. I've got to say that the concept of putting things like my banking details on Facebook — a site which changes its privacy rules on seemingly a daily basis — gives me pause for thought. That being said, Facebook is incredibly popular, so I can see what Telstra's getting at with the push, which starts today with a dedicated Facebook-based support team operating at all hours; by June the full release of the whole Telstra package, including the ability to check your Telstra accounts in the same way you can from Telstra's own web site will go live. If you do want to be an early adopter, you'll need to be quick, as the release notes that it'll only be open to the first 1,000 customers to link their Telstra accounts via Facebook.

Video. On 25 June 1998, Microsoft released Windows 98. It didn’t come out with quite as much fanfare as Windows 95 did, so to commemorate the OS’ 20th anniversary, YouTuber Shelby Jueden built a gaming PC using brand new, in the box, 20-year-old components, as well as an unused copy of Windows 98.
A couple of weeks back I was tooling around the Blue Mountains in a Tesla Model S in order to test out the latest features of Autopilot. As a first-time Tesla driver, I had never been privy to the accompanying app, or the treasure box that glinted at me from the top-right. In fact, I didn't even notice it first. I was firmly distracted by the ability to honk the horn from inside my living room. But it the beckoning glint did eventually catch my eye. Curious, I tapped... excited to see what awaited me. And that's when I discovered that Tesla has loot boxes.
