Author: Gigi Silk. If we lived in a world without MMS who would I send all my cat/dog/rabbit/sloth/baby animal photos too? When my old dog (may she rest in peace) used to fall asleep on the couch I felt compelled to take a photo of her and send it to some poor family member whose inbox was probably just full of photos of my drooling dog. Seriously. Every. Single. Time.

Author: Gigi Silk. If you have a Samsung Galaxy SIII, Galaxy SIII 4G, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note II 4G you may have noticed that the five icons at the bottom of your screen on the dock are locked in place. The good news is that you’re not stuck with Phone, Contacts, Messaging, Internet and Apps; it is simply a matter of installing a new home screen overlay.
Hi everyone, my name is Gigi and I’m an Android convert.
As a bit of a fan of globetrotting, I have spent many hours researching, downloading and configuring the best apps for while you are away. With many lucky Aussies about to head off to Europe for the northern hemisphere summer, I thought now is no better time to share my favourites.
Gigi Silk - Snow-goers in Victoria and NSW might be disappointed by the first snow falls of the season but they won’t be disappointed by their mobile speeds on the slopes with Telstra switching on our super fast 4G network in Falls Creek, Mt Hotham, Perisher and Thredbo
This Friday marks the start of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) - and this year Telstra is proud to be one of the premier sponsors of this exciting event.
I’m not ashamed to say that begged our products team let me road test Sony’s latest gift to the smartphone community – the Sony Xperia Z. So if you were given a dust and water-resistant mobile to test what would be the first thing you would do? Naturally, I took a shower with it.
What a hectic start to the year it’s been. Can you believe it’s already nearly April?!
With 24/7 access to news and information-sharing there is no doubt we are living in a time that makes us the most informed society that has ever existed.
Do you suffer from nomophobia - the fear of being separated from your mobile phone?
If you could combine features of different mobile phones to create your ultimate "Frankenphone", what would it be? One Telstra staff member has her say, but we're keen to hear your ideas as well.
Summer is so close you can almost smell the sunscreen mixed with Aeroguard and a hint of Aloe Vera. The cicadas are warming up their vocals and the neighbours are trying to get their pool to turn from moss-green to pool-tile blue. And I’m excited for this. There are some great techy things out there to get you as excited for the impending days of sweat-inducing heat and blowflies ruining barbeques.
Picture this: you’re in a shop and like the song that they’re playing but have absolutely no idea what it is. You try frantically to listen out for one line of the lyrics so that you can pop it in to Google and hopefully find out the name of the song so that you can purchase it from iTunes (or find it on MOG!); fortunately, there’s an app for that!
This post on the true spirit of sportsmanship covers some of the highlights of the London Olympic Games, Australia's Olympic Heroes and the athletes and events that made us proud.
Gee whiz. We were just getting over our Tour de France jet lag and now Europe is doing it to us again. With London 2012, you can feel your sleeping pattern slowly slipping away as you become hooked on sports that you may have never cared about before, but suddenly seem like the most important thing in the world.
If there’s one thing I really like, it’s winning a running race. The only problem is that I never have anybody to race against.
If you are a rampant iPhone user (like me) and have worn out your poor home button then I have a solution for you!
This app is oh-so user-friendly, smooth and is simply begging to help me with my public transport needs.
