News from around the Netscape

Ebay is standing by their decision to change payment method to Paypal or COD only.
Despite a series of forums on the change involving big wigs from both ebay and Paypal's Australian arms, little has been done to allay the fears of users and sellers that its all a big revenue grab.
Big winner from this move is an Australian auction site called Oztion.
Let's hope everyone abandons Ebay for this home-grown version.

An announcement dumping the plan for Free City broadband was quietly slipped in last week in the same edition of the paper as the Sydney Harbour boat tragedy that claimed six lives.
The emailed press release was sent to technology writers but political reporters did not receive it. This came almost a year after Mr Roozendaal said the Government was in the "final approval stage" of selecting a supplier to build the network, which would provide free internet access to anyone within range.
A spokeswoman for Mr Roozendaal said the decision to scrap the network was announced on the day of the boat crash because that was when the decision was made and "because of the commercial nature of the decision" the announcement had to be made immediately.
Yeah right. Dodgy, dodgy practices.

3 kindred spirits ~ This bugs them too!:
