  • Samsung has revealed a new Galaxy smartphone that takes the 'phablet' concept to a whole new level: the aptly named Samsung Galaxy Mega measures a faintly ridiculous 6.3 inches and comes with a 720p display, LTE connectivity, up to 16GB of inbuilt storage, 1.5GB of RAM and a 1.7GHz dual-core processor. You can get the rest of the details over at Gizmodo.

  • KFC Australia has been caught out censoring LGBTQI interest material on its in-store Wi-Fi network, Gizmodo reports. The issue was apparently caused by a glitch in the ConnectSafe system that Norton provides KFC.

The 'Aryayek Time Traveling Machine' purports to use "complex algorithms" to predict up to eight years of an individual's future life. The inventor claims the machine, which is small enough to fit inside a laptop bag, is 98 percent accurate. Hmmm. [Via The Telegraph]

    "◾KFC Australia has been caught out censoring LGBTQI interest material on its in-store Wi-Fi network"
    I think you'll find it censors anything of a sexual nature. Then again I wouldn't expect rationale when slinging the 'homophobic' banner around.

      ...and even moreso arrogant when followed by:
      "The issue was apparently caused by a glitch in the ConnectSafe system that Norton provides KFC"

      So it's not even KFC's responsibility, but they're *cough* "homophobic".

      Nice one...

    So really the headline should be, "Glitch homophobic," lol.
