Sepia-toned interest rates

Summary:On this week's Technolatte podcast, the Australian team looks at the government scrapping the internet filter, NAB and Facebook commerce, and Verizon's plans for the Asia-Pacific region.

Why did the Australian government dump its plans to implement a mandatory internet filter? Why is NAB looking into Facebook commerce? And what went down at Verizon's media day in Singapore?

On this week's Technolatte podcast, we discuss:

  • The Federal Government's decision to not proceed with its mandatory internet filter plan, instead enforcing the Interpol filter on reluctant internet service providers

  • The National Australia Bank teaming up with a Melbourne start-up for Facebook commerce

  • The latest news from Verizon at its media day in Singapore.
