Using Myki to pwn an iPhone

Yesterday’s big Myki news story in the mainstream media was the revelation that Myki ticket machines spit out EFT receipts containing excessive amounts of personal details, even if the user doesn’t ask for one, leaving people open to identity fraud if they don’t collect their receipt.

Who is buying advertisements on Metro Trains?

About a year ago Metro Trains Melbourne started to place advertisements inside their trains, when they signed a $10 million, six year contract with media operator S&J Media Group. Thinking back to my daily commute led me to believe private training colleges were spending up big, but that isn’t a scientific process. So which companies are actually buying the space?
