A few people sent word of another data leak, this time 5 million Google accounts and two Russian mail services. Both companies said that an overwhelming majority of the accounts listed were either obsolete, suspended for suspicious behavior or non-existent. They insisted that their own databases were not compromised and suggested that the leaked data was accumulated over years through phishing and other forms of hacking attacks on users.

Apple released the iPhone 6, 6 Plus and a Watch last night, with details on Tech Report, TechRadar and MacRumours. Today's major media event saw the unveiling of two new iPhones, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. Along with larger screens and a completely new iPad-style design with an ultra thin body and rounded corners, the two new phones offer faster processors, better cameras, and NFC integration with Apple's new ApplePay payment system. Discussion here, and of course there's always this kind of comparison from Android fans. :)

The Intel Developer Forum is also underway, with info on upcoming "Skylake" and 14-nm Broadwell chips - coverage on Techreport, HotHardware (and benchmarks here) and LegitReviews. At its developer forum today in San Francisco, Intel confirmed that its 14-nm Broadwell chips will be shipping not just as Core M, but also as Core i3, i5, and i7 processors early next year. Interestingly, the firm then revealed that its next-generation CPU architecture, code-named Skylake, will be going into production in the second half of the same calendar year.

Community television will be off the air in a year or so. Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull today announced that community stations would only be licensed until the end of 2015. After that, they would not be granted access to broadcast spectrum and Mr Turnbull suggested they use the internet instead.
