We want all Mac users to experience the latest features, the most advanced technologies, and the strongest security. And now they can. Because the newest version of OS X is free. It’s a simple download from the Mac App Store, so it couldn’t be easier to get. OS X Mavericks is another major leap forward for the Mac — and for everyone who uses it.
The High Court of Australia has today ruled in favour of IceTV in what has been an epic three year legal battle with the Nine Network.
Six months after the appeal was heard by the High Court and 3 years since the case originally began the High Court has today in Canberra, allowed IceTV’s appeal from the decision of the Full Court of the Federal Court. A comment as to the High Court findings will follow shortly.
In an official statement made immediately following today’s judgment, IceTV’s Chairmanand major investor, Mr. Colin O’Brien said the following;
“I would like to thank all our shareholders, our staff, our customers and our business partners. Without their support during the last three years IceTV would not have survived. IceTV now looks forward to a successful future bringing both Free-To-Air TV and content via various partners to viewers in a way that satisfies viewer demand, whilst embracing the future of digital Free-To-Air television in Australia.”
Since it’s incorporation in 2005 IceTV has had one aim: To give TV viewers the freedom to record and manage their TV shows as they choose. To record what they want, skip what they want and watch it at a time that suits them. No longer do viewers have to watch their chosen shows when the Networks tell them or to watch content they would rather skip through. IceTV gives them this choice.
This win today is also a win for our many subscribers who enjoy the benefits of simpler, smarter TV viewing.
IceTV’s General Manager, Mr. Matt Kossatz made the following comment after the High Court’s decision;
“Today’s decision is the news that we (IceTV), our staff and our loyal users have waited 3 long years and worked very hard for. With everything happening with digital television in Australia at the moment, the timing is ripe and almost worth the wait. We are seeing more and more content coming to both free-to-air TV and via the web and as an independent company (not a TV Network), we will always have the ability to put the interest’s of the consumer first in terms of features we offer”.
So little. And yet so much.
The new iPod shuffle is jaw-droppingly small. It’s half the size of the previous generation. Yet there’s room for so much more. With 4GB of storage, it now holds up to 1,000 songs,1 and lets you enjoy multiple playlists, too.
It speaks for itself.
Introducing VoiceOver,2 the feature that gives iPod shuffle a voice. With the press of a button, it tells you what song is playing and who’s performing it. It can even tell you the names of your playlists, giving you a new way to navigate your music.
These older models are very popular as they are bigger the the current 21″ and smaller than the 27″.

The faster graphics card is well received for those of us that use a Mac Mini as a Media Center can now use it as a gaming machine as well. More ram is also welcomed as 2Gb was limiting on the previous Mac Mini and so is the Firewire 800 port allowing access to 1-4.5TB larger external hard drives. What is disappointing is the slower 5400rpm rather than 72000rpm hard drive but we offer this as an update. What we are excited about is you may be able to run two screens but we will need to investigate this further as we await our dealer demo units.
Looks good and responds fast to surfer clicks. The shotcuts such as Apple-T are still there, so the surfer experience is familiar… with a few graphical differences such as the tabs are now in the header of the page – thereby saving a whole line of screen real-estate.
The Top Sites is a great first graphical list of the most popular sites in your history (no page-load) and the search feature is cool how it goes into “Cover Flow” mode.
Safari 4 beta doesn’t handle DHTML to well yet. WordPress 2.7.1 locked up the page when trying to add a url using DHTML…. so maybe it’s not time to upgrade yet.
