  1. Recent article about a new way to hack digital assistants in phones or other smart devices. Create an audio or video file with sound that seems like noise to humans, but sounds like commands to the digital assistant device: http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2017/02/could-hidden-voice-commands-make-hacking-your-phone-easier/
  2. Interesting topic. I've noticed my perception of high frequencies seems more prominent after I've had my ears cleaned by flushing with water. However, I'm not sure this is an enduring experience. Personally I think my brain adjusts quite quickly and everything seems 'normal' again. It would be interesting to repeat the experiment a day or two later, to see if there's still a perceived improvement. Tricky part could be how good subject's 'audio memory' is. David.
  3. Hi. This suggestion won't fix the issue, but may help diagnose where the problem lies. Try forcing Firefox to use it's internal fonts, rather than web site fonts. Type about:config in the menu bar. Accept the warning. Look for browser.display.use_document_fonts in the list of config items. Double-click and change the value from 1 to 0. Try loading the Classifieds and see if it loads any better. If it does, there's something going on with fonts. You don't want yo keep the config above as it will mess with the appearance of most web sites.It's a simple matter of repeating the process above but changing the browser.display.use_document_fonts value back to 1. Another thing you can try is creating a new account on your iMac and log in. Try the site and see if the problem persists. Neither of these suggestions fix the issue, but do give some information on where to focus. Regards, David.
  4. This is not the case in the Senate. Quote from 'The Age': "Ater High Court-ordered upper house countbacks, Ms Nash is expected to be replaced by Liberal Hollie Hughes; Mr Roberts by Queensland publican Fraser Anning; Mr Ludlam by 22-year-old disability advocate Jordon Steele-John and Ms Waters by former Democrat Andrew Bartlett."
  5. No Labor or Liberal politicians got the boot. At least they seem to have taken this part of the constitution seriously and performed their checks before nomination. The Nationals have taken a beating and will lose senators to the Liberals. Completely unnecessary if they'd operated a professional party administration.
  6. Why not both? All the ads together when you enter the classifieds, with the option to select sub-categories if you wish?
  7. Love the dog photo bomb!
  8. Some great opportunities to save some serious money buying an amp second-hand, especially from this site. With solid state, my only caveat would be to exercise some caution with older, high powered class A amps that run at high temperature. Better off with a good quality class AB amp to start with.

    They look spectacular! Quite a journey so far. Can't wait to read you opinion on how they sound.
  11. One hi-end company who like to show what their stuff looks like under the hood is Accuphase. It certainly looks 'shiny' to me. Then again, they're distinguished by publishing guaranteed specifications alongside nudie photos, which to my mind adds to trust about the quality of their offerings. On the other hand, their pricing inside and outside Japan does suggest they could be cheaper in most markets.
