The Federal Court has ruled that the merger of Vodafone and TPG can go ahead, despite the ACCC's concerns. The ACCC believed TPG would restart a bid to launch itself as a fourth mobile network operator in its own right if the merger with Vodafone did not proceed. The commission maintained that having more - not fewer - mobile networks was better for competition, a view dismissed by the court and criticised by Vodafone. The question now is whether the ACCC decides to appeal the courtís ruling.

In an interesting parallel, the merger of T-Mobile and Sprint in the US might be going ahead as well. During a two-week trial in December, T-Mobile and Sprint argued the merger will better equip the new company to compete with top players Verizon Communications Inc and AT&T Inc as the third-largest U.S. wireless carrier, creating a more efficient company with low prices and faster internet speeds.

TechPowerUp have a Threadripper Overclocking article. In this article our resident AMD Ryzen memory and overclocking guru Yuri "1usmus" Bubliy will dive deep into the dozens of new settings introduced with third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors, so they become accessible both for platform beginners and enthusiast overclockers wanting to climb benchmark leaderboards. Special attention is given to memory settings, one of the most important dials to maximize overclocking performance on AMD's new third-generation Threadrippers.

TechSpot meanwhile compared Radeon RX 5600 XT vs. GeForce GTX 1060 6GB vs. GTX 1070 in 32 games. Today we're running the Radeon RX 5600 XT through more than 30 games and for comparison we have the older Pascal-based GTX 1070 and 1060 GPUs. We've also thrown in the RTX 2060 Super and RX 5700 XT for good measure, but the key takeaway for this article is to see what kind of upgrade the Radeon 5600 XT offers over the GTX 1060 when testing a huge range of games.

If you have kids under 5, you might be interested in new guidelines about online safety. A booklet for families offering practical advice and strategies for parents and carers, to tackle the key online safety issues for children from birth to 5 years old. This resource is available online, and additional free printed copies can be ordered by families and services. I wonder if they have a booklet covering what to do when your 13yo son has unilaterally moved the PS4 into his bedroom..
