Briefly: PS4 Review, Wikileaks Warns Of Piracy Crackdown, Get $25 Off Wine

Brief news items of note for Lifehacker readers including: Leaked free-trade agreement between Australia and US hits at a massive piracy crackdown, PlayStation 4 reviewed, the return of Calvin & Hobbes.

  • Wikileaks has obtained a Free Trade Agreement document that allegedly details huge, sweeping changes to intellectual property laws in Australia. The proposed changes include enforcing geoblocks, restricting the sale of devices that might be able to circumvent geoblocking and a massive crackdown on internet piracy which includes tougher penalties. ISPs would also be held accountable for pirated material. You can read more extracts from the leaked document over at Gizmodo.
  • Calvin & Hobbes is the best thing to happen to humanity since sliced bread. It’s now available in ebook form via Amazon’s Kindle store and Apple’s iBooks store. Hurrah!
  • Kotaku has handed in its verdict on the PlayStation 4 which it describes as a hell of a console. Click here for the full lowdown.
  • The Wine Market is currently offering $25 off any wine order with no minimum spend when customers use the promotional code ‘WMMTR2549’. The deal is supposed to exclude beers and ciders, but we’ve seen reports of it accepting any order — so try your luck! There’s a delivery fee of $8.00 per carton. [Via OzBargain]


  • Also briefly; am I the only one that kind of thinks the xbone and the ps4 look kind of terrible? Not in terms of gameplay or anything, just cosmetically.

    • Yeah, I’m not a big fan of the designs either — in fact, I think I mentioned it in one of my ‘first impressions’ articles.
