The world?s largest online auction website Ebay tried to remove nearly all forms of alternate payment recently, and force Australian users to use Ebay?s own payment facility, Paypal, but the ACCC had other ideas.

Also, the Arrival of the iPhone is now less than a week away, and the dust looks like it?s settled. Optus, Vodafone and Telstra are all set to sell what will soon be the ubiquitous apple telephone, but poor old Hutchison, who runs the city centric 3 network seems to still be out in the cold.

According to the Rudd government, the needs of older Australians wishing to be trained in the use of the internet will be met by the creation of approximately 2,000 seniors internet kiosks, provided by community organisations that support seniors which will be funded by government.
