I bank with Suncorp and the only way you can move money out of your accounts is with an extra password that's provided by the bank or an RSA token.
I'm not saying that the password is secure, but that it's not the most important part of securing themselves against fraud.
They'd rather give the majority of users a better experience on their system and let the people who need to move money have a secondary requirement that prevents fraud.

Bob Slydell: Well, just a second there, professor. We, uh, we fixed the *glitch*. So he won't be receiving a paycheck anymore, so it'll just work itself out naturally.
Bob Porter: We always like to avoid confrontation, whenever possible. Problem is solved from your end.

Comment It's completely ridiculous! (Score 1) 796

It's not blasphemy if a guy goes and proves that there's a leaky pipe, what if a plumber had come onsite to fix it?
If he rocked up and said "Nah he's just a cunt" that'd probably be closer to the "hate speech" India's blasphemy laws refer to.
How can you expect your society to move forward if you allow people to be persecuted for not believing in God.

Plan: Register Atheism as a religious organisation, sue everyone who says God exists because we see it as "hate speech insults or attempts to insult the religion or the religious beliefs of any citizen with deliberate and malicious intention to outrage their religious feelings."

Let's have a look at 4G around around the world shall we?
Oh look! It would appear that THE MAJORITY OF THE WORLD uses the 900/1800 GSM band.

Apple intentionally mislead consumers, and they were warned prior to the iPads release by the ACCC that what they were doing was in breach of advertising laws.
I've spoken to many CEO's (I work helpdesk for a private hospitals) who wanted to order the iPad and when I told them it wasn't 4G compatible in Australia they were all shocked to hear it. I would assume this is the same with many other consumers as well.
