Google, YouTube and Australian tech sites play pranks on unsuspecting users.
Technology news Web site ZDNet continued the trend, with news of a Packer-Murdoch consortium securing a contract to build the National Broadband Network.
Perennial favourites Google introduced a new concept to AFL lovers, with the GPS-enabled, PC-connected gBall revolutionising the game.
Technology forum Overclockers Australia went for the simple touch, displaying a 'prohibited content' message and confusing unwary viewers.
Broadband news and communication website Whirlpool broke the news of Senator Stephen Conroy’s dismissal from the role of Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy.
Australian video-gaming news website IGN got a scoop on the next GTA game — set in Australia. The 1970s-themed GTA: Harbour City is reportedly under development by Rockstar Bondi.
Australian car enthusiast site R31SkylineClub replaced its front page with an Australian Government takedown notice, citing 'promotion of illegal car usage'.
Another ZDNet blog proclaimed the death of the much-maligned filter blacklist, with a new filtering list being based on the public’s votes on national television (we'd prefer it, frankly).
Video-gaming website Kotaku took a dig at a topic close to its heart — video game censorship. Under the new rules, only games rated PG or under would be available to purchase on Australian shelves.
Video-sharing website YouTube tried out a new look, giving users a different perspective on their videos. We actually prefer this new look — it makes the comments easier to ignore.
