On this edition of TCTA, Shaun speaks about:

  • Breaking it off with your phone and your addictions you hypocritical fucks
  • Green thunderstorms_ there have been many theories behind the mysterious glow – ABC News (Australian Bullshit Corporation)
  • Israel is using an algorithm to spot the next ‘lone wolf terrorist’, and soon other countries will too – ABC News (Australian Bullshit Corporation)

  1. Hi Shaun and audience,

    If you want to use your iPhone without wireless use one of these or something similar – you’ll have to make sure it has the right connection for your phone. It allows you to plug in an Ethernet cable to a converter which then plugs into your phone.

    And this is a good way to get Ethernet all over your house without running Ethernet cables everywhere. It runs Ethernet over your home eletric cables (you plug them into your power sockets)



    • Also I forgot to mention you can buy a thing called a switch that you plug into the power line adapter which will give you more ports to plug Ethernet cables into.


      • Thanks for the info Sam. I really do appreciate it. I don’t understand the IPhone side of things because I don’t have one. I don’t even have a smart phone. I have one of those old school phones that is ‘almost’ just a phone. I did however take something from what you were saying about using the power cables instead of the Cat 5 or Cat 6 running all over my house. Again thanks for that mate. I will look into this ASAP. I was just talking with my Son and Daughter about this very subject and I would really like to even have their laptops wired so this info is going to come in handy.

        You have yourself a good festive season and I will discuss this more on this weeks show.



  2. Shaun,
    Powerline adapters use the existing electric wires that already run through the walls of your house.
    The setup is modem -> cat5/6 -> powerline adapter which is plugged into an electric outlet (the same one you plug any appliance or computer into). The powerline adapter has a cat5/6 port and also the usual 3 prongs that you plug into a wall socket.

    From there the signal is sent through all the electric wires in your house. (You don’t use extension leads) Then you use a second (or third or however many you need) powerline adapter and plug it into an electric outlet. Then you just plug a cat5 cable into the second powerline adapter and you’re good to go.

    The iPhone adapter is about using a cat5 cable to use the internet on your iPhone or smartphone. I realised I was using my iPhone like a computer but I didn’t want to be microwaved. I found this solution a couple years ago and now never use my iPhone wirelessly except when I need to look up a location when I’m out of my house(using 3G/4G)

    Basically a modern smartphone is just the same as a computer – I just browse the net on my couch and in the bedroom. I use the powerline adapters to do this to the couch area. I just run Cat5 leads close to where I normally use my phone, then plug it into the iPhone adapter.

    You have a good break too mate!
