There's an Overclocking Workshop coming up in Perth soon. We want to help the up and coming guys take the next step, show you how we overclock, give you our Liquid nitrogen contacts, show you some tips and fast track you to becoming the next big Australian overclocker. We are all extremely passionate about this sport and want to see it grow and give a helping hand to this community which has helped us all start from scratch.

Kodak may be bankrupt, but that doesn't seem to be stopping Apple from suing them. The case hinges around digital camera patents; Apple alleges that it developed a digital camera in the early 1990s that it shared with Kodak and that Kodak subsequently sought to patent the technology behind it. There's a site about Apple's patents and their use here.

It seems Australian companies are still not quite getting the hang of Twitter. Perhaps these people really do buy their own PR hype – perhaps they truly, honestly believe that Coca Cola indeed “is it”, that McDonald’s diners are actually “lovin' it”, that Qantas will always remain the “Spirit of Australia”, wherever it may be based. If so, the social media response may serve as a useful reality check: customers aren’t the sheep they may appear to be.

Google have a blog post about regulation and Australian content. Interestingly, Australia is running a trade surplus in online video. In 2011, overseas viewers watched more hours of Australian content on YouTube than Australians watched of overseas content. Unfortunately, there’s a real danger at the moment that unnecessary regulation — like that being sketched out in the Interim Report from the Convergence Review — could stop this thriving part of the digital economy in its tracks.

A Canadian man has excavated his basement with remote-control earthmovers - taking nine years. Okay, so at first glance, it doesn't seem like such a big job. If you know which end of a shovel goes into the ground, you could excavate a room-sized cavern under your house in a couple of weeks. But if you live in Saskatchewan, Canada, where in winter the mercury has been known to hover somewhere below -15C for several weeks on end, it's good to have a hobby.
