Weasel your way into an amazingly addictive mobile game

AotW-Weasel-Woodpecker-hero

App of the Week: Weasel Woodpecker

Flying weasels riding woodpeckers! Do I have your attention yet? If I do, then I think I can safely say I’ve found your new favourite time-waster!

Weasel Woodpecker is a deceptively simple side-scrolling mobile game inspired by the now-famous photo of a weasel, unbelievably, riding a woodpecker.

And that’s exactly how you begin the game – as the weasel trying to jump onto the woodpecker’s back. That’s also where the challenge begins – managing to do that in the game is about as easy as you’d expect it to be in real life, and it took more tries than I’d like to admit to get it right.

Become a Step Master with the Fitbit App

AotW-fitbit-hero

Last year I travelled over 2,000km’s and took 2.5 million steps. How do I know? The Fitbit app of course!

If you haven’t got yourself a fitness wearable such as the Fitbit yet, do yourself a favour and get one. Not going to get one? No matter, the Fitbit app can track the basics using a compatible smartphone.

7 amazing wearables unveiled at Mobile World Congress

WW-040315-hero

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

By now you would’ve heard a little bit about the innovative devices coming out of Mobile World Congress. These are exciting devices, with particularly great announcements from HTC and Samsung (edge, anyone?).

But what I am most excited about is the range of wearables we’re seeing come out of MWC. This should come to no surprise, given that wearables are at the start of a ten-year boom.

Here are just a few of my favourites.

In the winning LANE

network-speed-hero

Mobile World Congress is not just about future innovation but recognising the best in the business, and we’re thrilled to announce that Telstra has been recognised by its worldwide industry peers by winning the Broadband for all: Outstanding LTE Contribution award for our LTE Advanced Network (LANES) service.

LANES is a ground breaking new technology developed by Telstra to provide Emergency Services groups with reliable wireless broadband communications in emergency situations.  LANES enables dedicated mobile network capacity and priority access to the public mobile network to ensure that, during a large scale incident, critical information can be shared in real time with and between emergency service operatives who need to make quick and accurate decisions in the field.

The award win follows the successful use of LANES technology to support police operations during the G20 Summit in Brisbane late last year. This is an amazing achievement considering it was only at last year’s event that LANES was being showcased as a concept.
