On this week's Byte:

  • News:
  • It's that time of year! What kind of gifts would you give? We gave some thought to our friends around the station:
    • For Anthony Carew, the Phonekerchief, which blocks incoming calls the old-fashioned way - with electromagnetic interference.
    • For John Bailey (a fitness freak - who knew?), the Nike+ Fuel Band, which monitors your activity as you exercise.
    • For The Architects, IRL Shooter - experience space in a real-life zombie apocalypse!
    • For Breakfaster Stew Farrell, the Nike Hyperdunk+ - shoes with a brain...
    • For Elizabeth McCarthy, a Mathematical Quilt - keep yourself warm and informed!
    • For Karen Leng, a 3D Printer - so she'll never be short of an interviewee!
    • For the Graveyarders, a Humble Bundle 8 to keep them company during the long night.
    • For everyone, the Kano build-it-yourself computer.
  • And then, of course, there are the gifts that WE want:
  • Light News:
    • China has landed on the MOOOON!!! (as if you don't say it like that, too).
    • Google have released their 2013 Zeitgeist (their fancy term for "what everyone searched for this year").
    • The Cicada 3301 puzzle has intrigued many throughout the year, and the next set is due to be released early in the new year.
  • Events and Opportunities:
    • Smart Utopia? public seminar and book launch disussing smart technologies, and how they are transforming all aspects of social life, December 19, 4pm-6pm, Storey Hall, RMIT University, Swanston St.
    • Magento Meetup #5, December 19, 7pm, Union Club Hotel, Gore St, Fitzroy.
    • PauseFest 2014 - exploring digital culture - February 13-16, 2014, Federation Square.
