It looks like online poker will be banned in Australia soon. "The original 2001 law was meant to stop online gambling of many kinds, but it didn't, there was a loophole. There is quite an active online poker community in Australia. I don't think it will succeed for those really determined.

Here's a strange one from aftahours, Google removing some tab closing functions from Chrome. Chrome engineers are planning to remove two options from Chrome that allow users to quickly close a large number of tabs with just a few clicks. The options, named "Close other tabs" and "Close tabs to the right" reside in the menu that appears when a user right-clicks on a Chrome tab. The menu options have existed in Chrome since its birth and were inspired by options introduced in the Firefox browser a few years back.

There's a World Science Festival underway in Brisbane at the moment, thanks aftahours. Lots of activities and giveaways, it seems.
