People often make the mistake of confusing internet speed for bandwidth. It’s not their fault, though. Internet service providers claim that their connections are as fast as 35 Mbps, or that their speeds are 20% faster than their competitors. But the truth is that your 25 Mpbs connection has little to do with speed, and more to do with how much data you can receive every second.

True internet speeds comes down to a combination of bandwidth and latency. What is latency? The definition for latency is simple:

Latency = delay. It’s the amount of delay (or time) it takes to send information from one point to the next. Latency is usually measured in milliseconds or ms. It’s also referred to (during speed tests) as a ping rate.

How is Latency Different from Bandwidth?

Well, for one thing latency is a way to measure speed. Ironically, bandwidth isn’t, despite the fact that everyone refers to bandwidth as speed.

More seriously, though, the best way to explain the difference is like this (using a pipe as an example):

  • Bandwidth has to do with how wide or narrow a pipe is.
  • Latency has to do with the contents of the pipe; how fast it moves from one end to the next.

Latency and Bandwidth – Cause and Effect

There is a cause and effect when it comes to latency and bandwidth. In other words, one will affect how the other functions. And ultimately, the final outcome is the speed of your internet connection.

For example, if you have a real low latency, but you have a small bandwidth, it’ll take longer for information to travel from point A to point B compared to a connection that has a low latency and high bandwidth. To put this into perspective, 5 Nascar race cars will get from point A to point B faster if they’re on a 5 lane freeway (low latency, high bandwidth) compared to the same number of cars making the same trip down a 1 lane freeway (low latency, small bandwidth).

What is a Good Latency?

A good figure for latency, like bandwidth or anything internet related, is relative. What are you going to be using the internet for? That would make the question much easier to answer.

That said, anything under 100ms is reasonable. If you want to play games, especially first person shooters or driving games, then you should aim for a latency of less than 50ms and preferably less than 30ms.

What Affects Latency?

There are a number of things that affect latency:

Connection Type – The type of connection you use will affect your latency. A good example is satellite internet. Satellites are tens of thousands of miles away in space. When you make a request it goes to the satellite, to the main ISP hub and internet, and then back again. It has to make multiple trips to space and back for you to get the data you requested. This (obviously) takes a long time. As a result satellite connections have ping rates in the range of 500ms. This is very high, especially when you compare it to a solid cable connection (like mine) that has a ping rate of 12ms.

Distances – The further you are away from something (satellites, ISP hub, etc) the longer it’ll take for information to be sent from there to your computer.

Congestion – This goes hand in hand width bandwidth. The smaller your bandwidth connection (or if you share bandwidth), the more likely you’ll experience congestion (slower internet), especially with a low latency. All of this information is coming at you real quick but has to slow down because there the pipe (bandwidth) is only so big and can only fit so much in it at once. So your data has to wait it’s turn.

iPhone 11 Range Aussie Intel

posted 10 Sep 2019, 18:23 by Happi Mess   [ updated 11 Sep 2019, 19:28 ]



The wait is finally over. In the early hours of September 11, Apple unveiled its 2019 iPhone range to a throng of rapturous disciples. There are three new models to choose from including the long rumoured "Pro" version and Apple's first stab at an entry-level phone.

Here's everything Australian customers need to know, including the prices, specifications and release date.

New iPhone models

Apple will be releasing three new iPhone models, each in a range of capacities. There's the entry-level iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro which comes with a better camera, and the big boi option, AKA the iPhone 11 Pro Max .

The iPhone 11 will come in a choice of six colours: yellow, green, purple, black, white and red. The Pro and Pro Max will be available in the more traditional gold, space grey and silver as well as midnight green.




How much will the iPhone 11 range cost in Australia?


The iPhone 11's Australian pricing starts at $1199. That's a big leap from its starting price in America (US$699), but bear in mind that the Aussie exchange rate is kind of sucky right now. The US also adds an after sales tax, whereas GST is included in our RRP.

With all that said, $1199 is still a lot of money for a supposedly 'entry-level' iPhone. On the plus side, existing iPhone owners will be able to get it from Apple for $849 with a suitable trade-in.

The iPhone 11 Pro, meanwhile, starts at $1749. (Or $1249 via trade-in.) The iPhone 11 Pro Max will set you back an eye-watering $1899 and up. If you have a device that meets Apple's trade-in criteria, you can bump that down to a slightly more palatable $1399.

Incidentally, these are the first iPhones to nearly break the $2500 price ceiling, with the 512GB Max model coming in at a seriously hefty $2499. Yikes!



Here are the iPhone 11 prices for each available capacity.






Insurance is like a Parachute. 
The only opportunity to test it is when you have to use it.
At which time, one is more concerned with Quality 
rather than price!

iPhone 11 Australian specifications

The biggest upgrade compared to the iPhone XS is probably the new cameras - you now get a wide and ultra wide sensor in the entry level model and a triple-camera array on the Pro versions thanks to a third telephoto lens. The cameras are further bolstered by Apple's new night mode.

All three models can shoot in 4K at up to 60 fps and include photog-friendly features like slo-mo capture, time-lapse, cinematic video stabilisation and extended dynamic range. Despite the more powerful cameras, Apple is touting all-day battery life for its new iPhones.

Naturally, the phones are powered by a new CPU (the A13 Bionic chip) and come with the usual bells-and-whistles you'd expect from a new iPhone range. Here are the chief specs in a handy table.

iPhone 11 release date


Not long now! The iPhone 11 range will be available for pre-order on September 13 and will ship on September 20. You can find out more on Apple's website.
iPhone 11 mobile plans

Australia's major telcos will be selling the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max on a range of plans but pricing isn't available yet. We should have details by the end of the week.

For context, here's how much the 64GB iPhone XS currently costs on Vodafone. Expect to pay substantially more - especially if you want a higher-capacity model.



Pro Design and Display

iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have a textured matte glass back and polished stainless steel band, and come in four stunning finishes including a beautiful new midnight green. The most powerful devices are also designed to be durable — iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max feature the toughest glass ever in a smartphone and are rated IP68 for water resistance up to 4 meters for up to 30 minutes, and are protected against everyday spills including coffee and soda.

The new Super Retina XDR display, a custom-designed OLED, provides users an immersive HDR viewing experience for movies and other high-definition video with up to 1,200 nits brightness. Super Retina XDR features wide color support with system-wide color management and True Tone to offer a more natural viewing experience. With a 2 million-to-one contrast ratio with true blacks, pro users can enjoy a more vivid viewing experience for HDR videos and photos, and the Super Retina XDR display is even more power efficient. Customers can interact with their favorite apps in a quick, seamless way with Haptic Touch deeply integrated across iOS 13 to provide app shortcuts for everyday tasks right from the Home screen, including taking a selfie in Camera, checking an appointment in Calendar or previewing email within Mail with just a simple press.

Fastest Performance with the Best Battery Life

A13 Bionic, the fastest chip ever in a smartphone, provides unparalleled performance for every task iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max handle and features up to 20 percent faster CPU and GPU than A12. A13 Bionic is built for machine learning, with a faster Neural Engine for real-time photo and video analysis, and new Machine Learning Accelerators that allow the CPU to deliver more than 1 trillion operations per second. Together, A13 Bionic and iOS 13 make up the best machine learning platform in a smartphone.

All of this compute, graphics and ML performance is delivered while still enabling an unprecedented leap in battery life, with iPhone 11 Pro offering up to four more hours of battery life in a day than iPhone XS, and iPhone 11 Pro Max offering up to five hours more than iPhone XS Max.

Netflix has a 'Secret' App

posted 28 Aug 2019, 08:28 by Happi Mess




Image: Getty Images

Netflix is constantly trialling new features to enhance the user experience. What you might not realise is that the customers who participate in these trials are not randomly chosen by the company. Instead, there's an opt-in app for Netflix nerds that anyone can sign up to! Here's how to join the club.

What is it?

Netflix uses a beta testing app to roll out new features to a select group of Netflix users. Some of the trials eventually make it to the official app for everyone else to use - so if you don't mind being a guinea pig, you'll get to experience the new tools first.

To give you an example of the sorts of features the beta club gets, Netflix is currently testing a new human curation tool. As The Verge reports, this tool employs actual humans to promote the best content instead of relying on questionable algorithms. It also uses novel categories like 'Real & Riveting', 'Artful Adventures' and 'Watch, Gasp, Repeat'.

Image: Twitter/ItsJeffHiggins

This is just one of many examples - most of the Netflix tools we take for granted today, such as shuffle mode, HDR video and the rewind/fast-forward preview bar began life in the beta.

How to become a Netflix tester

It's actually incredibly easy to join the beta testing service. First, you'll need a Netflix account (in case that wasn't obvious). Head to your account home page and under Settings, there'll be a link titled 'Test Participation'. Click on it and choose whether you'd like to opt in.



If that doesn't satiate your exclusive club fix, you can also join the Android App Beta club. To do that, you'll obviously need an Android device, which needs "a Google Play certified, non-rooted Android phone or tablet running Android version 5.0 or newer."

Here's the explanatory spiel from Netflix:

If you are interested in testing updates to the Netflix mobile app for Android before we release them to all of our customers you can join the Netflix app beta on the Google Play Store. This helps us ensure the application is stable and working properly before a full release.

Once that's all sorted, head to the Netflix opt in link and if the beta channel isn't full, you'll be able to join. (To opt back out, simply visit the exit page and uninstall the beta version of the Netflix app from your device. You can then reinstall the public version from the Play Store.)

As a Netflix tester, you don't actually have to do anything apart from using the service like normal. The beta app will automatically log errors, crashes and other performance metrics in the background. (In other words, don't bother logging anything or sending feedback to Netflix.)

urgent warning over duty free receipt

posted 18 Jul 2019, 20:49 by Happi Mess   [ updated 24 Jul 2019, 19:31 ]



Tourist issues urgent warning to Australian travellers after finding a 'very concerning' detail on his duty-free alcohol receipt - and reveals why you should NEVER throw them away

Tourist issues warning to travellers in Asia buying items at duty-free

Perth man Colin Ahearn was travelling from Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur to Phuket in Thailand when he decided to buy some of his favourite duty-free alcohol at the international airport.

Mr Ahearn was about to throw the receipt for the two bottles - Wild Turkey American Honey Liqueur and Smirnoff Red Label Vodka for his wife - when he was stopped by his eagle-eyed partner. 

Tracey Ahearn noticed a peculiar addition to the bottom of the docket - her husband's name, date of birth and passport number.


Tourist issues warning after finding 'concerning' detail on receipt

Perth man Colin Ahearn (pictured with wife Tracey) was travelling from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Phuket, Thailand, when he decided to buy some of his favourite duty-free alcohol

'I was about to throw the duty free bag out along with the receipt, Trace looked at it and said "look what information is printed on it!"' Mr Ahearn wrote with a video he shared to Facebook.



'If you just throw this in the bin, it's got your passport number, your full name, your nationality, your date of birth, when your passport expires, where you're flying out of.'

'Essentially if someone goes through and finds that information, they've got your full passport details.

'Not a good thing to have your passport number just floating in the bin on a piece of paper.'

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia about the revelation, Mr Ahearn said he had never seen anything like it.

Mr Ahearn was about to throw the receipt in the bin in common practice when he was abruptly stopped by his eagle-eyed wife Tracey (pictured). She noticed a peculiar addition to the bottom of the docket - her husband's name, date of birth and passport number

'We travel every 10 weeks and have never once noticed that information,' he said.

IDENTITY THEFT

Identity theft is a type of fraud that involves using someone else's identity.

By stealing an identity, a person may access a your bank account and obtain credit cards or loans your person's name.

To avoid identity theft, you should check privacy and security settings on social media, use strong passwords and check your account statements.

Identity theft has become more prevalent in the digital age, with online banking and increased online footprints.

Mum used Barbie Doll to Claim welfare for 15 Years

posted 17 Jul 2019, 00:52 by Happi Mess   [ updated 17 Jul 2019, 03:02 ]

A woman who claimed Centrelink parenting payments for almost 15 years after her baby died would dress up a doll and pretend it was her daughter, a NSW judge has been told.

Alison Christie Mains, 41, is awaiting sentence in Sydney's Downing Centre District Court for three counts each of obtaining financial advantage by deception and defrauding the Commonwealth.


"The offending began as a result of Ms Mains' daughter dying in horrific, tragic circumstances, aged five months," her barrister Marty Bernhaut said on Wednesday.

He said the disabled baby girl died in mid-1998 and the debt came to the fore in 2013 -- a period of 14-and-a-half years.

Bernhaut conceded Mains claimed $209,114 in Centrelink payments she wasn't entitled to and made false oral representations over the years that her baby was still alive.

But he also submitted she is illiterate, has never worked, has a background of "significant deprivation" and would have been entitled to $69,696.20 in Newstart allowance during the offending period.



He said a Centrelink investigator also established she could have received $189,281.70 in Disability Support Pension entitlements.

"The DSP she may as well have been eligible for...was some $2500 more than the single parenting payment (of $186,875.24)," he said.

Bernhaut said his client has previously told medical practitioners the baby's death was "a particularly difficult, stressful event" and has since engaged in behaviour including dressing up a doll and pretending it was her daughter.

"She reports being emotionally distraught and in poor physical health at the time," the barrister said.

"It's patently apparent that she deteriorated significantly in the period following her child's death."

The court heard Mains has also spent periods of time in rehabilitation for alcohol dependence.

The sentence hearing before Judge Nicole Noman continues.

69 Profound Confucius Quotes on Life, Love, Laugh in HappiMess

posted 11 Jul 2019, 20:13 by Happi Mess   [ updated 17 Jul 2019, 00:52 ]



If you’ve ever studied Chinese history, you’ve undoubtedly heard of the great philosopher Confucius.

Not only have his words of wisdom had an enormous impact on Chinese society till this day, but he helped countless people live moral and meaningful lives.

He came up with the well-known principle “Do not do to others what you do not want to be done to yourself” and his teachings mainly focused on morality, family loyalty, kindness and how to live an impactful and meaningful life.

I’ve gone through hundreds of his quotes to select his most powerful words of wisdom. Enjoy!
The Top 73 Profound Confucius Quotes






1) “By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”

2) “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”

3) “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”

4) “He who knows all the answers has not been asked all the questions.”

5) “If you make a mistake and do not correct it, this is called a mistake.”






6) “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”

7) “The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”

8) “The funniest people are the saddest ones”

9) “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”

10) “Wherever you go, go with all your heart.”






11) “To be wronged is nothing, unless you continue to remember it.”

12) “Respect yourself and others will respect you.”

13) “When you see a good person, think of becoming like her/him. When you see someone not so good, reflect on your own weak points.”

14) “Attack the evil that is within yourself, rather than attacking the evil that is in others.”

15) “What the superior man seeks is in himself; what the small man seeks is in others.”






16) “The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.”

17) “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”

18) “It is not the failure of others to appreciate your abilities that should trouble you, but rather your failure to appreciate theirs.”

19) “The man of wisdom is never of two minds; the man of benevolence never worries; the man of courage is never afraid.”

20) “The way out is through the door. Why is it that no one will use this method?”






21) “The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.”

22) “The hardest thing of all is to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if there is no cat.”

23) “Give a bowl of rice to a man and you will feed him for a day. Teach him how to grow his own rice and you will save his life.”

For more inspiring content on mindfulness and self-improvement, like Hack Spirit on Facebook:

24) “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”






25) “Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.”

26) “People with virtue must speak out; People who speak are not all virtuous.”

27) “The superior man has a dignified ease without pride. The mean man has pride without a dignified ease.”

28) “Never tire to study. And to teach to others”

29) “He who flatters a man is his enemy. he who tells him of his faults is his maker.”

30) “The demands that good people make are upon themselves.”






31) “Those that bad people make are upon others.”

(If you’re looking for a structured, easy-to-follow framework to help you find your purpose in life and achieve your goals, check our eBook on how to be your own life coach here).

32) “The journey with a 1000 miles begins with one step.”

33) “I am not concerned that I am not known; I seek to be worthy to be known.”

34) “If there were an honorable way to get rich, I’d do it, even if it meant being a stooge standing around with a whip. But there isn’t an honorable way, so I just do what I like.”

35) “Looking at small advantages prevents great affairs from being accomplished.”

36) “To see and listen to the wicked is already the beginning of wickedness”

37) “Your life is what your thoughts make it.”

38) “Anyone can find the switch after the lights are on.”

39) “Humankind differs from the animals only by a little and most people throw that away.”

40) “Act with kindness but do not expect gratitude.”






41) “Not to discuss with a man worthy of conversation is to waste the man. To discuss with a man not worthy of conversation is to waste words. The wise waste neither men nor words.”

43) “All people are the same; only their habits differ.”

44) “If names be not correct, language is not in accordance with the truth of things.”

52) “If I understand Change, I shall make no great mistake in Life”

55) “Worry not that no one knows you; seek to be worth knowing.”






56) “The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home.”

57) “A common man marvels at uncommon things. A wise man marvels at the commonplace.”

63) “Settle one difficulty, and you keep a hundred away.”






64) “When the wind blows,the grass bends.”

65) “He Who Knows And Knows That He Knows Is A Wise Man – Follow Him;
He Who Knows Not And Knows Not That He Knows Not Is A Fool – Shun Him”

66) “If you look into your own heart, and you find nothing wrong there, what is there to worry about? What is there to fear?”

67) “Ignorance is the night of the mind, but a night without moon or star.”

68) “Fix your mind on truth, hold firm to virtue, rely on loving kindness, and find your recreation in the Arts.”

69) “The way of the superior person is threefold; virtuous, they are free from anxieties; wise they are free from perplexities; and bold they are free from fear.”

About Western Australia History & culture

posted 10 Jul 2019, 22:36 by Happi Mess   [ updated 16 Jul 2019, 19:59 ]






An ancient land and one of the oldest living cultures on Earth

Billions of years in the making, Western Australia is one of the most ancient lands on the planet.

That’s a lot of history to explore – from 3.5 billion-year-old living fossils, to more than 40,000 years of Aboriginal history and four centuries of European influence.


Natural history




Mother Nature went to work on Western Australia’s landscape billions of years ago, forming the reef and the rock formations that now offer some of nature’s most incredible adventure playgrounds, including World Heritage listed Bungle Bungle Ranges, Karijini National Park and the magnificent cave formations ofTunnel Creek and Margaret River.

Venture to Shark Bay and you can also gaze in awe at some of the earliest forms of life on Earth – the Hamelin Pool Stromatolites. Dating back more than 3.5 billion years, these are the oldest and largest living marine fossils on the planet.
Aboriginal history

Australian Aboriginal culture is widely regarded as one of the oldest known living cultures on Earth.

Over tens of thousands of years, Aboriginal people adapted, diversified and lived a nomadic lifestyle in perfect harmony with this ancient land, surviving harsh climatic and environmental conditions.

Forming more than 700 traditional societies with over 200 languages, Aboriginal Australians shared knowledge through stories and rock art.




Much of this ancient art remains today, including one of the richest prehistoric art galleries on Earth, the Burrup Peninsula, and the oldest known artwork, the world-famous Gyorn Gyorn (or Bradshaw) paintings in the Kimberley.









MARITIME HISTORY



While it’s widely believed that Portuguese sailors plied the waters of Western Australia as early as the 1500s, the first recorded European landing was made by a captain of the Dutch East India Company in 1616, at what is now known as Dirk Hartog Island.

Discover the legacy of those who followed in his tracks at Cape Vlamingh, the Abrolhos Islands, Rottnest Island, Cape Leeuwin, Point D'Entrecasteaux, the wreck of the Batavia, and more than 100 known shipwrecks off the coast.






PIONEERING AND COLONIAL HISTORY



As one of the few Australian states to be settled as a free colony, Western Australia’s colonial history and culture is unique.

European settlement officially began in the port of Albany when a military outpost was established in 1826. However this was soon moved to the fertile Swan River valley, which is now the site of Perth and Fremantle.

Take a walk through Fremantle today and you’ll see much of its original splendour in the best preserved 19th century port streetscapes in the world.

In the hills, valleys and vast plains beyond Perth, many agricultural towns were established throughout the 1800’s. Among the oldest and grandest are York and New Norcia – home to the State's only Benedictine Monastery.







CONVICT HISTORY



Although Western Australia was not settled as a penal colony, its convict era marks a significant chapter in its history.

With few hands to expand the first settlements, convict labour offered the ideal solution for the building of infrastructure, and one of their first tasks was to build the very prison in which they’d be held – Fremantle Prison.

In operation for a staggering 140 years, the prison is now World Heritage listed and one of Western Australia’s most visited attractions.

Other sites revealing gruesome chapters in the State’s convict era include Rottnest Island, Roebourne and the Boab Prison Tree near Derby.






GOLD RUSH HISTORY


In 1893, Irish prospector Paddy Hannan hit a significant alluvial gold deposit at the base of Mount Charlotte near Kalgoorlie. His discovery sparked Australia’s largest gold rush, luring people from all corners of the world to seek their fortune.

Learn of the hardships and highlights following the Golden Quest Discovery Trail through Coolgardie, Menzies, Kalgoorlie and many eerie gold rush ghost towns.

Or hit the Golden Pipeline Heritage Trail and marvel at Western Australia’s greatest engineering feat that brought fresh water to the parched goldfields.

Today, the gold rush legacy lives on at Kalgoorlie’s Super Pit – one of the world’s largest open-cut mines, producing 900,000oz of gold every year.





WORLD WAR HISTORY



Western Australia's strategic location made it hugely important during the two World Wars, which is why you’ll find many coastal locations, such as Rottnest Island, Fremantle, Albany, Geraldton and Broome, are steeped in wartime history.

King George Sound in Albany is where the first convoy of ANZACs departed for the battlegrounds of the First World War. Today, you can follow their extraordinary stories through the National Anzac Centre's state-of-the-art interactive displays.

Guided and self-guided history tours are a great way to discover Western Australia’s war heroes and long-abandoned bunkers, airstrips and barracks.

A French company claims to have invented a pill that can make your farts smell nice.

Yep, we all know someone who could use that, right? By the way, if you're sat there thinking "actually, I don't know anyone" - it's you, mate.

Anyway, the pills have been developed by an inventor called Christian Poincheval, who is based in the western French town of Gesvres and - he claims - that they can transform your smelly gas into the lovely fragrance of chocolate or roses.

Yes, this anal alchemist actually thinks he can make your shit smell like roses.

In fact, he's been at it since 2007, according to the official website of the company, called Lutin Malin (that's Cunning Imp, en Anglais).

They claim that the pill is entirely natural, there's nothing medicine or drug based therein. Just a "dietary supplement based on natural ingredients" that will make your guff smell good.

Huge, if true.

The website claims: "The Fart Pill is the result of lengthy research and trials and is on sale since 2007. Our fragrant variants also add a touch of humour for any occasion.

"Our numerous returning customers are no doubt the best proof."

If you fancy giving this pump purifying product a bit of a go, then head on over to the website - or Amazon, as it happens - and you can pick up a sachet of 60 pills for less than £20.

There are even some interesting variations, too.

Ever wanted your flatulence to smell of ginger? Yep, you can.

There are even some interesting seasonal choices, too.

Christmas chocolate or May Day lily, anyone?

It's not just for humans, either. The website also claims to have some powders that you can use on your dog.

Now that is a claim to make. Dog farts are the bane of every owner's existence.

However, according to Lutin Malin, you can just sprinkle this powder onto their food and their ordinarily rank output will be replaced by the delightful smell of spring flowers.

A few years back, Mr Poincheval told The Telegraph that his invention was borne out of necessity after a particularly smelly dinner party.

He explained: "Our farts were so smelly we were nearly suffocated. Something had to be done,"

Off he went. He experimented with ingredients and combinations an eventually settled on a recipe. Now, they've really taken off.

He continued: "I have all sorts of customers,

"Some buy them because they have problems with flatulence and some buy them as a joke to send to their friends. Christmas always see a surge in sales."

Why wait until then?
