GUEST INTERVIEW: We live in a golden era of data, with abundant cloud storage in ever more sophisticated data centres, giving us greater insights than ever before, but how can businesses best manage unstructured data, decide what should and shouldn't be in the cloud, and minimise growing cloud costs? Aparavi's Gary Lyng joins us on iTWireTV to explain it all.
PROS is a SaaS platform to optimise shopping and selling experiences. It has today announced its newest, next-generation, incarnation for driving omnichannel sales for any business, accelerating time to value and optimising revenue profitability.
Ok, so the creative renaming of the ACCC is my idea, and not Adderton’s, but Peter has done the sums, and clearly, the communications competition conundrum isn’t adding up - why were there no consumer protections put in when the TPG and Vodafone merger was approved?
With Elon Musk able to influence the price of various cryptocurrencies up or down based on what he tweets, concern is growing, for with great power comes great responsibility, and no-one really knows how responsible Musk is, or isn’t.
Even with the NBN Co as a government entity in public hands (at least for now), the companies that retail the nbn service are faced with artificially limited capacity and pricing constraints while selling an unlimited product to consumers, leading to six month introductory deals that then raise the price afterwards - and it’s no surprise to see Internet providers and end-users still complaining about the NBN alike.
Australia’s consumer voice on communications issues, the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN), has cautioned that consumers may seek alternative home broadband solutions, like 5G, if NBN prices are not addressed.
Taking up the fight to Optus’ price match scheme, Telstra has started one of its own, so that “If you find a better price for an Australian retailer on a huge range of post-paid phones within 7 days of receipt of the phone, we’ll credit your bill”.
A new survey from phone and Internet comparison site WhistleOut shows "strong Australian interest in the new iPhone 12 range" and that "iPhone fans are willing to pay more for their handsets than other people" - but will they go on payment plans or buy outright?
Telstra has launched a range of new “radically simplified” post-paid mobile plans which it says will give consumer and small business customers data increase of up to 30GB, as part of a refresh of its T22 strategy which was introduced last year in a move aimed at simplifying the telco’s operations and product sets, improving customer experiences and reducing its cost base.
Global IT management software provider, SolarWinds, has announced the majority of its on-premises IT operations management products now have subscription-based pricing available.
University students are being offered special pricing from Apple on Macs and iPads, with the added bonus of Beats Studio3 Wireless headphones, a free year of Apple TV+, as well as special pricing on various apps and Apple Music.
Australia’s competition regulator the ACCC says it has given price certainty for legacy wholesale telecommunications services with its decision to maintain existing price and non-price terms until 30 June 2024 for seven declared, or regulated, fixed line services.
NBN Co, the operator of the National Broadband Network, says it welcomes any additional options the ACCC may identify through its Access Pricing Inquiry to promote competition and the interests of customers.
Is the answer to life, the universal and everything a circular equation? In the circle of life, the cycle of your phone bill has fluctuated over the past couple of decades, but in 2019, a new telco wants to square the circle of being "more likeable than hateable".
Clickbait-loving naybobs of negativity once bemoaned that most of Apple's sales were attributable to its iPhone, and that there are no cheap mid-range models, but now that Apple has grown, adding newer products and services, 'lower' but still in the tens of MILLIONS of iPhone sales are... bad?
Several of Samsung's heralded features have been seen in last year's Mate 20 Pro from Huawei, but it is important for Samsung to catch up – and Apple, too.
Stating it is "shaking up the Australian rideshare market", Didi says its new "standard pricing in Melbourne" reduces fares by 10%, while lowering its services fee so driver-partners "earn 95% of fares".
Apple's newest iPhones are its most impressive and powerful yet, starting at A$1229 for the 64GB iPhone XR, and going up to A$2369 for the 512GB iPhone XS Max.
Vodafone has made Optus' and Telstra's pre-paid plans look like overpriced 28-day expiry jokes with too little data and not enough international countries, but Amaysim still has the best 365-day "as you go" plan.
Taxify is "introducing upfront pricing in Australia with the new model to roll out in Sydney this week", with Melbourne coming in October.
