Apple Australia finally drops 4G Branding from The New iPad online

Apple Australia finally drops 4G Branding from The New iPad online

Call it a win for the consumers here, because Apple Australia has finally decided to drop the 4G Branding for The New iPad on it’s online store – something which we stated was misleading and deceptive conduct. If anything, we were 100% on the money because the ACCC decided to take Apple the court over these false claims (that The new iPad in Australia was a 4G model), and won. The end ... »

Nokia hires Former Miss World Priyanka Chopra for Lumia 800 ads in India

Nokia hires Former Miss World Priyanka Chopra for Lumia 800 ads in India

Personally, I think Priyanka Chopra is easily one of the most beautiful women in the world (she was after all Miss World 2000), and it seems that Nokia agree with me as well! They’ve actually recruited Ms. Chopra to star in some ‘Blown away by Lumia’ ads in India and while we obviously know they’ve been staged (come on, as if guys won’t be clamouring to ask her out... »

Upcoming Steve Jobs Film to star Ashton Kutcher?

Upcoming Steve Jobs Film to star Ashton Kutcher?

Steve Jobs was the King of the Tech world until his recent passing, and it was only a matter of time before a movie was made about his life. What we never dared to fathom however was who would be playing Steve Jobs – Ashton Kutcher. That’s right, the star of Two and a Half Men (who coincidentally plays an internet billionaire) is who Variety is saying has been chosen to play the co-fou... »

Recap of the Melbourne Nokia Lumia LIVE Event

Recap of the Melbourne Nokia Lumia LIVE Event

A gorgeous day in Melbourne set the tone for Nokia’s Lumia LIVE event here today, which was full of fun and entertainment throughout for everyone that came by the gigantic Nokia Lumia screen. Of course, what seemed like a boring screen at first was really a dance-athon waiting to happen with a single step of a tile. That’s right, Nokia had set up an Augmented Reality system with a Kine... »

We called it! ACCC to take Apple to court over Misleading ‘4G’ claims

We called it! ACCC to take Apple to court over Misleading ‘4G’ claims

Before we dive into the story, can we just say ‘We Called it’! That’s right, it was only a few days ago we discussed the possibility if Apple really was entering into Misleading and Deceptive conduct based on the ‘4G’ tag on The new iPad, and while the ACCC didn’t have an official position then – they most certainly do now. The ACCC have decided to take Ap... »

Is Apple calling The new iPad ‘4G’ in Australia Misleading and Deceptive Conduct?

Is Apple calling The new iPad ‘4G’ in Australia Misleading and Deceptive Conduct?

So recently, a few of us have been having a deep discussion on twitter (yes it does happen) about whether Apple selling (read: Advertising) The new iPad as a 4G iPad was misleading and deceptive (to understand more, see this link) conduct since clearly 4G doesn’t work anywhere in Australia. Apple claim that despite this fact, it will get you much faster speeds than normal 3G model iPads, but... »

Rave iBand is Asia’s first band to use only smartphones and tablets

Armed with nothing but smartphones and tablets (the band has told us we’re unable to actually name said ‘products’ so just use your imaginations), Asia’s first iBand have started to take the internet by storm. Rave iBand as they are so aptly called, have taken on one of India’s most popular Bollywood songs ‘Shelia Ki Jawani’ and put on a Jazz Blues spin on... »

The History of Social Networking from 1971 (Infographic)

The History of Social Networking from 1971 (Infographic)

We found this very interesting infographic about The History of Social Networking sites, right from 1971 up till present day (perhaps a little earlier in 2011). It details the start from email right up till Facebookination (Facebook domination) in present day, and it’s actually very interesting to see how things changed, and how popular Myspace and Friendster were in comparison to Facebook w... »
