+ - Australia is one step closer to R18+ video games->

Submitted by Benaiah
Benaiah (851593) writes "Australia is one step closer to getting an R18+ rating for video games following the resignation of South Australian Attorney-General Michael Atkinson. He suffered a smashing 14.3% swing against him in the recent election and has decided to step down to allow "renewal" in the Government's leadership. He has repeatedly used his veto power to prevent Australia from having an R18+ rating on games and as such big title games such as Fallout 3, Aliens vs Predator and Left4Dead 2 have been banned or censored.

+ - Driver stuck on cruise control for 30 minutes->

Submitted by Benaiah
Benaiah (851593) writes "In something seemingly out of a Keanu Reeves movie, an Australian driver was unable to make his freeway exit when his car failed to slow down as he applied the brake. For those of you too lazy to RTFA he tried everything to stop the car including turning off the ignition but to no avail, the computer was in control. Police at one point escorted him down the wrong side of the road at 80km/h(50mp/h) until he eventually was able to stop it by bringing by repeatedly stepping on the brake pedal. Ford Australia spokeswoman Sinead McAlary said there has been a recall on that make of car but for a different reason."
