What am I?


I’m the first Windows Phone capable of blistering 4GX speeds in 4GX areas on the Telstra Mobile Network.

I have a 5” HD display with enhanced outdoor readability. Flip me over and you’ll find a 10 mega pixel camera with optical image stabilisation and Dolby surround sound recording. I‘ve got a motion sensor built in which can track your fitness, and I even come with two back covers so you can switch colours from orange to black whenever you want!

The next step in our cloud partner journey


I’ve talked before about simplifying cloud adoption and giving our customers the choice and flexibility to ensure a simple and predictable migration to the cloud. This week, we took the next step on this journey announcing Telstra as the Australian host of vCloud Air – VMware’s new hybrid cloud service.

We’re seeing strong demand locally, with IDC citing a 47 per cent growth in the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) market value over the past year alone. Organisations want to migrate workloads quickly and seamlessly to meet business needs and a hybrid cloud strategy means significant cost savings, which we know to be a priority for all.

vCloud Air is a public cloud platform built on vSphere. It enables customers to extend existing virtual machines (VMs) to the public cloud using your favorite management tools or start up new application VMs directly in the cloud. As Australia continues to adopt virtualisation technologies, we believe our customers will be quick to adopt vCloud Air.

Runny nose? Itchy eyes? 4 apps every hay fever sufferer must get


The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming – it must be spring!

If you’re like me, however, and you suffer from hay fever, your best friend at the moment is the closest box of tissues, toilet paper, or a trusty shirt sleeve! Desperate, I know, but desperate times call for desperate measures!

For anyone that suffers from hay fever, it’s always a delicate balance between packing your pockets with tissues, or just hoping that allergy tablet kicks in so you don’t end up sniffling repeatedly in front of a group of people on that packed train or your colleagues in a meeting room.

Hay fever is serious business, affecting  1 in 5 people across Australia –almost 5 million people! And that’s nothing to sniff at!

So what can us hay fever sufferers do when we are at our worst in spring? Outside of blowing our nose to death, scratching our eyes and popping allergy tablets, of course. As with most things these days, we are no longer alone; there are now apps and websites that can help us predict the pollen levels where we live. This enables us to plan in advance for those high level pollen days when it’s not appropriate to have a tissue stuck up our nose, or we aren’t wearing our emergency snot sleeves.
