Come on get appy and do your thing

DYT-hero

Small and medium business owners start their businesses for many different reasons – they want freedom and independence, they want to carry on a family tradition, they have a passion.

While technology is becoming increasingly important to SMEs, most business owners aren’t tech experts and their time is better spent focusing on the reason they’re in the business, rather than trying to work through technology issues or understand the latest technologies.

6 wearables for keeping fit and fashionable on a budget

WW-150415-budget-hero

Welcome to our Wearable Wednesdays series, a weekly look at the world of wearables.

Some of the best things in life are free, such as hug from a loved one, or meeting with a new friend. But when it comes to technology, that’s not always the case.

People talk a lot about having to fork out the big bucks to keep up with latest gadgets, but you can stay tech-trendy without having to spend a lot.

My favourite of those trends is, of course, wearables. Think wearable tech is too expensive for you to don? Think again! Because no matter what your budget, there’s a wearable out there to keep you fit and fashionable – without breaking the bank.

Here’s five we love.

Do you have #4GXAppeal?

S6_Header

Fashion moves fast. By the time you finish reading this, hemlines will have shortened and lengthened back three times, men will be questioning the checks and striped combo shirt they thought was cool, and the new black will most definitely not be black.

This Friday we’re celebrating style and all things trendy for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Both phones are stylish, smart and sophisticated, just like you. They’re also 4GX compatible, which means they’re capable of the fastest 4G speeds in Australia in 4GX areas so you’ll be able to shop, browse and share before the next new trend comes along.

And speaking of trends, we’ve combined two that will never get old for the launch of these very stylish looking smartphones: Street Style (unique, yet totally attainable, style) and the Hero Accessory (something extra that takes your look from zero to hero).

In Telstra stores across six Australian capital cities, we’ll be hosting Australia’s first ever nationwide street style photoshoot and it will all be captured on the latest hero accessory, a Samsung Galaxy S6. We’ll also have some fabulous fashion photographers, stylists and bloggers on hand to snap your style, give you a mini makeover and share their style tips with you!

Hello, this is Australia

Hello-this-is-Australia-hero

As a newcomer to Australia in the 1980’s, I was struck by two things: the strength of Australia’s telecommunications systems and the Australian sense of humour. A new documentary called ’Hello, This Is Australia‘, which airs on Channel 7 on Thursday 9 April at 8pm, has succeeded in capturing both aspects brilliantly.

This one hour TV special, produced by Telstra, tells the story of how telecommunications built a nation. It features luminaries such as Malcolm Turnball and Ita Buttrose and is narrated by comedian Dave Hughes in a funny and informative manner. I was also invited to offer some insights into what a brilliant connected future looks like for Australians.
