Changes to the Privacy Act in Australia are rolling out at the beginning of March 2014. The new Repayment History Information (RHI) that will be available to credit providers will make it essentially harder for the less fortunate in our society to attain credit and loan facilities as credit providers will have access to information about repayment histories about individuals. So even if you pay all your bills, but just slightly late, this can have a negative impact on your credit worthiness. Likely to lead to disadvantages and discrimination in fees and percentages rates for people living at the limits of their means – the laws have passed without much disturbance or public awareness. With unemployment ever so high and recent company shut downs this will have a real impact on people taking the risks of switching jobs or starting their own business and short term liquidity issues and will have a real impact now. So if you usually pay bills late or wait for the reminder notice it is worth your while reading up about how to avoid your credit rating from being slaughtered by these new laws.

The system is simple. You buy around 100 bids for around $100. With these 100 purchased bids you can place bids and with such extend the auction period by 10 seconds. With each bid the price increases by 1 cent. If the period runs out without additional bids you win and you must pay the price of the item.
So a common price for the iPad is around $45. At $1 per bid that is a collective spend of around $4500 for QuiBids for an item worth around $700. Not a bad business but aweful for customers.
With rumours of dummy bids, buttons freezing and various other suspicious activity you are best of staying away from these sites and replicas alike.
Fair Trading Assistant Commissioner Philip Flogel says the offers are in fact non-refundable payments, which are collected even if the customer does not win the auction.
Assistant Commissioner Flogel says most auctions are operated from overseas, which means Australian consumer protections do not apply.
“Once you’re online you’re not protected by Australian consumer law,” he said.
“So if you look to buy a product and it doesn’t work and all the rest of it, none of the protections which we have in Australia – which are very good – are available to you.
“It’s really outside of our jurisdiction, once the trader’s overseas.
So if it sounds too good to be true than it probably is.
Associated Press September 18, 2013
Brazil plans to divorce itself from the US-centric Internet over Washington’s widespread online spying, a move that many experts fear will be a potentially dangerous first step toward fracturing a global network built with minimal interference by governments.
President Dilma Rousseff ordered a series of measures aimed at greater Brazilian online independence and security following revelations that the U.S. National Security Agency intercepted her communications, hacked into the state-owned Petrobras oil company’s network and spied on Brazilians who entrusted their personal data to U.S. tech companies such as Facebook and Google.
The leader is so angered by the espionage she postponed next month’s scheduled trip to Washington, where she was to be honored with a state dinner.
Internet security and policy experts say the Brazilian government’s reaction to information leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden is understandable, but warn it could set the Internet on a course of Balkanization.
“The global backlash is only beginning and will get far more severe in coming months,” said Sascha Meinrath, director of the Open Technology Institute at the Washington-based New America Foundation think tank. “This notion of national privacy sovereignty is going to be an increasingly salient issue around the globe.”
While Brazil isn’t proposing to bar its citizens from US-based Web services, it wants their data to be stored locally as the nation assumes greater control over Brazilians’ Internet use to protect them from NSA snooping.
The danger of mandating that kind of geographic isolation, Meinrath said, is that it could render inoperable popular software applications and services and endanger the Internet’s open, interconnected structure.
The effort by Latin America’s biggest economy to digitally isolate itself from U.S. spying not only could be costly and difficult, it could encourage repressive governments to seek greater technical control over the Internet to crush free expression at home, experts say.
In December, countries advocating greater “cyber-sovereignty” pushed for such control at an International Telecommunications Union meeting in Dubai, with Western democracies led by the United States and the European Union in opposition.
U.S. digital security expert Bruce Schneier says that while Brazil’s response is a rational reaction to NSA spying, it is likely to embolden “some of the worst countries out there to seek more control over their citizens’ Internet. That’s Russia, China, Iran and Syria.”
Rousseff says she intends to push for international rules on privacy and security in hardware and software during the U.N. General Assembly meeting later this month. Among Snowden revelations: the NSA has created backdoors in software and Web-based services.
Brazil is now pushing more aggressively than any other nation to end U.S. commercial hegemony on the Internet. More than 80 percent of online search, for example, is controlled by U.S.-based companies.
Most of Brazil’s global Internet traffic passes through the United States, so Rousseff’s government plans to lay underwater fiber optic cable directly to Europe and also link to all South American nations to create what it hopes will be a network free of U.S. eavesdropping.
More communications integrity protection is expected when Telebras, the state-run telecom company, works with partners to oversee the launch in 2016 of Brazil’s first communications satellite, for military and public Internet traffic. Brazil’s military currently relies on a satellite run by Embratel, which Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim controls.
Rousseff is urging Brazil’s Congress to compel Facebook, Google and all companies to store data generated by Brazilians on servers physically located inside Brazil in order to shield it from the NSA.
If that happens, and other nations follow suit, Silicon Valley’s bottom line could be hit by lost business and higher operating costs: Brazilians rank No. 3 on Facebook and No. 2 on Twitter and YouTube. An August study by a respected U.S. technology policy nonprofit estimated the fallout from the NSA spying scandal could cost the U.S. cloud computing industry, which stores data remotely to give users easy access from any device, as much as $35 billion by 2016 in lost business.
Brazil also plans to build more Internet exchange points, places where vast amounts of data are relayed, in order to route Brazilians’ traffic away from potential interception.
And its postal service plans by next year to create an encrypted email service that could serve as an alternative to Gmail and Yahoo!, which according to Snowden-leaked documents are among U.S. tech giants that have collaborated closely with the NSA.
“Brazil intends to increase its independent Internet connections with other countries,” Rousseff’s office said in an emailed response to questions from The Associated Press on its plans.
It cited a “common understanding” between Brazil and the European Union on data privacy, and said “negotiations are underway in South America for the deployment of land connections between all nations.” It said Brazil plans to boost investment in home-grown technology and buy only software and hardware that meet government data privacy specifications.
While the plans’ technical details are pending, experts say they will be costly for Brazil and ultimately can be circumvented. Just as people in China and Iran defeat government censors with tools such as “proxy servers,” so could Brazilians bypass their government’s controls.
International spies, not just from the United States, also will adjust, experts said. Laying cable to Europe won’t make Brazil safer, they say. The NSA has reportedly tapped into undersea telecoms cables for decades.
Meinrath and others argue that what’s needed instead are strong international laws that hold nations accountable for guaranteeing online privacy.
“There’s nothing viable that Brazil can really do to protect its citizenry without changing what the U.S. is doing,” he said.
Matthew Green, a Johns Hopkins computer security expert, said Brazil won’t protect itself from intrusion by isolating itself digitally. It will also be discouraging technological innovation, he said, by encouraging the entire nation to use a state-sponsored encrypted email service.
“It’s sort of like a Soviet socialism of computing,” he said, adding that the U.S. “free-for-all model works better.”
Myer’s full year net profit has fallen 8.7 per cent to $127.2 million and CEO Bernie Brookes remains at the helm of this sinking ship.
Myer chief executive Bernie Brookes said net profit had been impacted by cost pressures associated with labour and occupancy (utilities, rates and taxes) but still thinks it is reasonable to spend dollars on significant refurbishments on three of its top 20 stores.
“As we move into fiscal year 2015 we expect to benefit from improved operating leverage and stronger fundamentals as a result of the completion of major refurbishments, the online business becoming profitable, and the ongoing optimisation of our store network,” the company said.
Can somebody please explain how completion of major refurbishments leads to stronger fundamentals? And please do not forget that Mr Bernie Brookes is the same gentleman who previously, based on Telstra funded report which used a grossly small sample size, said that online retail had its time in the sun and that bricks and mortar business are set to take the reigns.
Myer is an icon and giant in Australia and a race car of retail industry. It seems however that Bernie Brookes and his leadership team are failing to engage past the first gear. There are hundreds of small retailers doing really exciting stuff on the internet with little to no money and gaining amazing growth rapidly.
What is your excuse Bernie Brookes? Please reach out us if you like to some ideas on how to fire start your business online.
Groupon has hit a new low in so many ways. When Groupon employee Andy Johnston tried to negotiate a deal with the owner at Sauce in San Francisco the owner decided to hang up the phone as many of us do when we receive marketing and sales calls. After being hung up on – Andy decided on Gorilla tactics to get his deal. He threatened to get his friends to write negative reviews about the business on Yelp.
Whether it is his skill set that lacks or better judgement or whether Groupon has set greater expectations on their sales staff without training and education on etiquette – it just does not look enough Groupon.
Andy ended getting fired over his methods which reflects the cut throat image of the culture at Groupon.
Can you really continue to trust Groupon as a business owner and appreciate their ethics as a consumer or their personal accountability as a fellow human?
Kogan has announced that their network will discontinue its services within 30 days. Kogan has made extensive pleas to Telstra for a direct agreement but was unsuccessful at negotiating such. The closure of the Kogan Network comes on the back of the collapse of ispONE whose wholesale licenses from the Telstra network were extended to Kogan and Aldi. Unlike Kogan it appears that Aldi was able to negotiate a direct contract with Telstra. Kogan burst onto the scene on the back of its mobile phone sales and incredible value taking on 100,000 clients in a short time leaving many networks furious and fighting to win back clients according to Kogan. The Kogan network has been plagued since early days with their unlimited plans being based on fair play rules which effectively meant limits, leaving many clients scratching their heads and Kogan in continues talks with ispONE and Telstra. Telstra seems determined to keep Kogan out of its network.
Clients have 180 days to transfer their numbers and will be paid out any outstanding pro-rata amounts by Kogan. Providers like Optus are already pouncing on the newly freed clients.

The great debate remains not only as the headline of every farmers market but also for the rival retailers and big ticket item sellers like Kogan.com and Harvey Norman. So should you buy Australian and local or should you do what common economic sense would recommend?
Well it is clear who is winning this battle currently with Kogan.com swinging from strength to strength leaving bricks and mortar retailers like Harvey Norman scrambling to remodel their business. To add to the failures of ancient business models foreign retailers are dwarfing local wholesalers on price. American health and supplement retailer Vitacost.com for instance sells all products at below local wholesale prices and thereby squeezing out importers and local jobs one could argue. So why is this happening? The argument could be diluted with discussions about critical mass, economies of scale and logistic costs associated with Australia.
Basic economic education states that in an open economy and with Free Trade each country should maximise and solely produce what they are best at and trade such for the best economic outcome. Although this theory is rather idealistic there are truths within. Most countries embrace this basic theory and invest in becoming market leaders in more than just industry via entrepreneurship and innovation.
However, in a two stream economy like Australia which keeps pitching the resources sector and housing as the past, present and future makes it easy to justifies why we are losing 44 small businesses daily. So the obvious enemy is a short-sighted fiscal and trade policy. Australia is disabled to regain a competitive edge or foothold in a global economy that is planning for the future unless our leaders decide to get their heads out the comfort zone and drive entrepreneurship, innovation and rethink their roles in Australia’s future. Otherwise Australia is doomed like Borders Bookstores which effectively failed due to taxation on imported books. Putting up higher walls via taxes and closing our border from open trade got us here so that clearly is not the answer.
With unemployment hitting a 4 year high can we really continue to buy into the propaganda that buying local will change anything?
If you ever wonder why we keep hearing “Buy Local and Australian” from our politicians? It is purely an acknowledgement that somebody messed it up and the we as consumers are expected to pick up the tab for the policy failures by our elected leaders and artificially correct their mistakes.
So when somebody asks you to buy Australian next time – don’t be stupid. Would you pay for the tow truck if I drove your car into the river?
