Last night we partnered with the Starlight Children’s Foundation to support the Big Change for Little Champions Telethon, as part of the NRL Footy Show.

Once again we had an overwhelming response from Sydney staff, with 170 volunteers putting their hand up to man the telethon call centre at Liverpool St.

The Telstra call centre was a hub of activity during the Telethon, with six live crosses to the centre plus three pre-show, during The Block and Big Brother.

Today is a very special day.

Today is a special day because it’s Cheeseburger Day.

Apparently, the humble Cheeseburger humble beginnings began in the late 1920’s when a simple change (cheese) was made to the ever-popular Hamburger. Yep, they added cheese and revolutionised the burger – and I’m forever thankful for it!

Maybe you only eat Cheeseburgers on a Saturday or Sunday, but I personally only eat them on any days that end with Y.

And to eat burgers on days ending with Y, you need to be able to find them.

So to help you find the best burgers around Australia, here’s a handy list sites and blogs that regularly feature burgers.

Bookmark them on your phone and never miss out on a delicious slab of meat and bread again!

I recently won a Nokia Lumia 635 in a Telstra staff competition, so I thought I’d share with you what I thought about the phone.

I have been using the phone at work for the last two weeks and to sum it up: it has everything I want, without any over the top features I will never use.

The greats from the world of fashion and beauty have descended on Milan this month for spring/summer 2015 Fashion Week.

Trends hot off the New York and London catwalks have been flooding the internet, from Mui Mui’s cut cat prints and ladylike skirts, to the ever iconic tweed and pearl Chanel hallmarks. One major difference this year is that wearable technology is on the tip of our front row fashionista’s tongues.

Yes, it’s true: wearable technology has gone couture.

We know many of you are counting down to the launch of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on Friday. And, given the massive customer response we’ve encountered since both phones were unveiled we will be opening a number of stores early on Friday from 8am (local time).

These include capital city stores in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth where we’ll be serving up some refreshments for customers counting down at 8am.
