Global Accessibility Day (GAAD) Today we celebrate the tenth Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), a day of recognition that shines a light on digital access and inclusion for the one billion people with disabilities and impairments around the globe.

Josh Frydenberg’s third Budget dropped this week with all the hype of a new record. In musical circles artists tend to branch out creatively on their third album, diverting from the mainstream and even their own genre to try new things.

Following the release of Apple’s iPhone iOS 14.5, and its new privacy feature, App Tracking Transparency, all developers must now ask permission before tracking users across apps and services.   Until now, Facebook and other apps have been able to mine data from iPhones if users had not changed their settings to prevent it, which very few people did.   This new feature requires users to give explicit permission to an app to share their location data and activities with advertisers. Without this permission, it will be harder for companies like Facebook and other app developers to track users’ activity, and that restriction in data will likely impact their advertising effectiveness. "We think that some number of
