    So basically it’s the Victorian Desalination Plant of apps.

    Best $50m we ever spent. It’s worked a treat.

    Worst app eva! I haven’t scored one decent date off it yet and the sex I’ve been having certainly isn’t safe!

    Contact tracing, non-existent.

    I actually had someone tell me that “no cases” was proof the app worked and protected us from CV-19.

    So Minister Hunt, can I go to the footy now?

    What does it detect?

    Naïvety.

    They will have to discover that just downloading the app made people more careful about where and when they went places. They were more mindful, circumspect, and aware of risks.

    The fact no new contacts were discovered, therefore, proves it was effective.

  8. Some of us were wondering how many dick-heads there were in Australia.
    Now we know it’s at least 6 million.

    Gummint wasting Public Bandwidth with a useless App, Sir Humphrey?

    Numpties have already tried to justify lockdown in exactly that manner.
    Confirmation bias writ large.

  12. 2dogs

    I take it the BLM protesters weren’t using it?

  13. cuckoo

    All they have to do is produce modelling of how many people would have died without the App. Problem solved!

    Confirmation bias writ large.

    No sniffle justifies the smashing of your nation’s economy and the blatant lawless disregard for our constitution while enforcing the imprisonment of the people and the abolition of their liberties.

    It is not for these criminals to take away our freedoms unlawfully, and it is not their role to grant them either.
    They cannot decide to give back what they unlawfully stole by force of arms.
    They care about power, and they feel power in granting freedoms as much as removing them, when they have the right to do neither.
    They need fucking shooting.

    Quarantine
    a state, period, or place of isolation in which people or animals that have arrived from elsewhere or been exposed to infectious or contagious disease are placed.

    The federal, not state governments are charged with the responsibility of Quarantine.
    And quarntining has nothing to do with removing the freedoms of the healthy by force.

    This is a criminal act that has taken place, however most Australians let it happen, taken in gullibly by left wing TDS propaganda.

    Too stupid to survive.

    An app has replaced commonsense and basic hygiene practices. Where the hell is the world going?

  17. Robber Baron

    Never trust anything your government tells you. The app is working very well. It is collecting lots of data.

    I’m pleasantly surprised it’s as low as 6 million.

    Yet another IT disaster. It is everywhere. The people who approve and mandate the latest app/program are the ones who know the least about IT. Governments and Unis are full of it. 23 years ago a book came out called “Crash: learning from the world’s worst computer disasters” . Nothing has changed. There was no ‘learning’.

  21. RobK

    It seems all a bit moot if there is nothing to trace, at least for now.

  22. Phill

    I notice that the US version of the Apple IOS software now includes its own Covid tracking feature (ie, not an app, but built into the operating system. Its not there in the australian version.

  23. H B Bear

    Well this is embarrassing.

    Maybe because at Amazon it is listed with a publication date 1st April 2000?
