IFA kicks off amid rumours and excitement

IFA_hero

Europe’s largest consumer electronics show, IFA, begins in Germany today. For us Aussies it’s happening overnight, so we’ll likely awake to some exciting news about the latest and greatest gadgets.

But what, I hear you ask, exactly is IFA anyway?

Well, it’s one of the oldest industrial exhibitions in Germany. It’s special to tech enthusiasts because, unlike other tech trade shows, it allows access to the general public — with 200,000 people expected to visit!

Hints and rumours have gone into overdrive and people from all around the world have been tweeting their excitement:

‘Till death do we tweet: how to plan your social wedding

wedding_hero

I have eight weddings from now until April. Eight! One of those, however, is my own and a piece of sage advice I was given was to ensure I had a wedding social media policy.

It sounds a little controlling, but there is truth to thinking about how you want one of your biggest days shared with the world.

Let’s admit it; most of our friends are avid fans of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Live posting, hashtaging and tweeting a big event is fast becoming the norm. Yet, while you may assume social media is a welcomed wedding guest, it’s important to consider that the bride and groom might not always agree.

Hybrid cloud, simplified

Filed under: ,,

cloud-strategy_hero

The love affair between cloud and business is growing. We know this because a recent IDC Survey of Australian enterprises indicates plans to adopt a hybrid cloud are at around 80 per cent.

With this number so high, how do we best manage the move between traditional IT, public and private cloud environments?

We also know flexibility and choice is a priority for customers, which is why I’m pleased to confirm that Telstra is taking steps to enable this while making the process less complex. We plan to do this by expanding our cloud services portfolio and offering the best in market solutions with a single service management experience.

Our vision? To provide a range of next generation platforms that complements our strategic cloud partnerships. Today we’re announcing that we are partnering with VCE, a joint venture between EMC and Cisco with investment from VMware and Intel to offer private Cloud – Vblock™ Systems.

The HTC One mini 2 comes to Telstra

HTC-One-mini-2_hero

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.
