    Can I make a grumpy old man suggestion please?

    Less gifs in stories please!

    Hey @Gizbodies (by that, I'm referring to YOU! Gizmodo viewer!), ever read posts by Tony Windsor?

    I do occasionally when friends share his FB stuff. I will say that he's better than Malcom Turnbull online - Not only have I heard Turnbull referred to as the only minister to understand the internet, but Turnbull is a f*cking pig who only uses twitter to attack, which allows messages far to short to actually show substance..

    Turnbull hate aside, I agree with this message: https://www.facebook.com/TonyWindsorMP/posts/566644026690282

      "Many of the NBN's benefits would be lost. Take Aged Care for example. If the package of technologies enabled by high-speed broadband can keep 5% of elderly people in their homes for just one extra year, Australia could save $60 billion over ten years on aged care facilities ($4 billion a year in bed operating costs and $20 billion in capital costs). These savings alone would more than pay for the NBN."

      Personally, this isn't a use-case that I had thought of, and is another example of why people who say 'but the internet doesn't do anything but torrent/games' need to shut their mouth and think of what COULD be done, once you can do 'anything' over the wire.

    Does anyone think NK needs to demonstrate nuclear capabilities, or do you think they just need to have the information from countries who have already demonstrated nuclear capabilities?
