The HTC One mini 2 comes to Telstra


Once upon a time smartphones came in one size. But with the rise in video content we’ve seen screens getting bigger and bigger, with 5 inch and now even 6 inch displays on offer.

But there’s a countervailing trend going on. It seems small is big again, thanks to the introduction of a raft of compact smartphones for those of us who like a traditional sized screen.

The HTC One Mini 2 is the latest compact smartphone and is due to hit our stores on 2 September. We have it exclusively in Gold (pictured after the jump) and it’s also available in Gun Metal.

I’m 29 and I have the hearing of an 80 year old. Here’s my story.


360 million people suffer from hearing loss across the world. This includes 3.5 million Australians – and I’m one of them.

As Hearing Awareness Week kicked off on Monday, I thought it would be a great time to share my story.

In my late teens, I was classified as being hearing impaired with profound hearing loss in both ears of high frequencies. To this day we still don’t know the cause. At the time, I didn’t think much of it as I had managed to get through high school with the occasional, “Sorry?” and “What?” I was a teen after all – I wasn’t supposed to be concentrating most of the time!

For many years I refused to believe it affected me. I refused to wear hearing aids as I didn’t like the look of them. Because I never committed to them, I didn’t realise how much they would help. I was in denial, a common occurrence in those with hearing loss.

It wasn’t until I met the girl of my dreams that I finally had the motivation to change. She encouraged me to look past my superficial worries, and accept that I needed hearing aids to get the most out of life.

App of the week: Swing Copters


When Flappy Bird disappeared from the App Store, we missed it.

We missed it so much that we tried to fill the gap. We played recreations of the game in various formats; were tempted by those auctioning off phones with the game installed; we even looked to similar games for our next quick-fix!

But the gap was there. The gap was true.

Many of us thought that Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen would never return to pocket games… until now.
