Editor's note
Welcome to the Wrapper for another week, this week UNSW announced that it had mastered the process of creating single-atom transistors, a poll came out that showed majority support for the NBN, and Atlassian decided that they could not stand Apple's OS X sandbox restrictions for its SourceTree product.
