"We urgently need truth in political advertising laws"

I agree....but come on it's not just liberals, its labor too and pretty much every other party.

Algorithms?

I’ve been receiving ad after ad about car batteries on my iPad after TALKING about it whilst using my ipad recently. No google searches , nothing at all related searched for .

Is this a thing I’m not aware of ?

Far more than coincidence.

I have heard things like this plenty of times recently blowin. Maybe Siri is much more of an assistant than we're sold. Wouldn't surprise me at all.

Watching Pine Gap on Netflix. So far so good. Interesting to see the US, OZ, JINA relationship explored from an 'Intelligence' perspective, with an aussie flavour.

It looks like its going to happen, Elon Musk is going to buy Twitter.

I don't use the platform but a huge win for free speech, the man is an absolute legend, putting his money where his mouth is.

"Elon Musk has clinched a deal to buy Twitter for $US44 billion ($61.4 billion), in a transaction that will shift control of the social media platform populated by millions of users and global leaders to the world's richest person.

Key points:
The sale was unanimously approved by Twitter's 11 directors
Twitter shares rose about 6 per cent following the announcement
Donald Trump reportedly says he will not return to Twitter

Discussions over the deal — which last week appeared uncertain — accelerated over the weekend after Mr Musk wooed Twitter shareholders with financial details of his offer."
