By on

This is The Briefing, a ten-minute-or-less podcast of tech news, for the week ending October 6, 2012. In this edition: Zynga in turmoil, iiNet reveals it was compromised, draconian anti-piracy laws in Japan and the Philippines want to criminalise anonymous criticism.

For those who missed out what The Briefing is, here’s a blog post explaining the show. Feel free to offer any suggestions, improvements and constructive criticism for our new show.
