It is not so long ago that I realised the Australia stockmarket is controlled by a private company, ASX. The stock market does not have a long history of operating in an honourable manner, so I would have thought it was much better for it to be owned and controlled by the Federal
Government. But now, it is going to be controlled from Singapore, with the Singaporean government having a decent chunk of interest in the company. What a laugh, a foreign government part owning our sharemarket. I'm not really laughing.
On a lighter note, Sony is shipping out its last Walkmans, that is audio cassette/radio players. What shall I do when mine breaks down? Truly, it is a long time since I have listened to a cassette, but I use the radio all the time. Guess I will have to get a portable digital radio.
Caught up in the tram overhead wire is what used to frequently be seen on weekend and Monday mornings, that is cassette tape discarded into the street when the tape had become hopelessly tangled within the workings of usually car cassette players. While I have a very even temper, I can recall ripping tape out of a machine in frustration and anger. Actually, in this photo it is not audio cassette tape, but some other wider kind. Very hard to see, I know.
