Like countless other Australians, Haywards Bay resident Daniel Saffioti did not have access to the NBN. So he decided to do something about it.
His solution was to set up a wireless bridge and mini radio dish to beam the NBN directly into his own home - all for a few hundred dollars. Here's how he pulled it off (and overcame a big bump along the way.)
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
They say a picture paints a thousand words. Unfortunately, Channel 9's cricket commentators seem to have taken this as a personal challenge - there is no escape from their inane chatter, "hilarious" banter and shameless plugs.

The idea of a machine that talks to you intelligently might be a ways off still, but Instructables user MisterM wanted to make a radio that would announce general details throughout the day.

Online streaming of radio broadcasts may be a thing of the past after the Full Federal Court this week handed down a ruling that will result in radio stations paying higher royalties to the recording industry. What happens next?
Encrypted messages, fancy technology, spies use them all to communicate, but sometimes the best way to hide is in plain sight. Right now, broadcasting across the airwaves around the world, are automated, anonymous shortwave AM radio stations that most governments won't acknowledge even exist, much less explain. Best of all, you can hear recordings from them right now and if you have the right gear, tune in and listen yourself.
