Aussies Jump on Mobile Band Wagon

ABS Says Mobile Internet Booming in AustraliaNew figures from the ABS – Australian Bureau of Statistics – show that Aussies have significantly increased their mobile data downloads. The ABS stats show that around 6 million Australians are now using mobile wireless connections, an increase of almost 7 per cent in just six months.

In the three months between April and June, mobile users downloaded 6,610 terabytes of data,  a 32 per cent increase in mobile downloads compared to the three months to the end of last year. The ABS stats are based on figures from internet service providers, also show that the increase in desktop and laptop pc’s in the same period was up by 20 per cent.

Elise Davidson from the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network reckons the data isn’t surprising. However, she’s warned it is easy for mobile data spending to get out of control.

“Our advice is monitor what you’re using regularly, especially if you’re on a new plan or a new device,” Ms Davidson said. “It typically takes two or three months to figure out how much data you’re going to use. If you’re signing a new two-year contract, have a look at what you’ve used both in terms of calls texts and data in your previous contract and estimate really conservatively in the first instance.”

The ABS figures also show the number of internet subscribers in Australia rose by 10 per cent last financial year. There were 12 million subscribers, excluding mobile handset subscribers.


Will Apologetic Rant HALT The Kyle Sandilands Money Exodus

Will Apologetic Rant HALT The Kyle Sandilands Money ExodusIt seems the exodus of money has finally quietened Kyle Sandilands? The enormous mouth of the kiwi radio personality has churned out some rubbish in it’s time. Sandilands has been pulled from the air more than once in his radio career, after several absolutely shameful tongue lashings:  ”Magda Szubanski would lose more weight in a concentration camp” and then of course there was the moral high Sandilands reached when a 14 year old girl who he’d had hooked up to a lie detector revealed she was raped when she was 12. Sandilands latest on-air rant against journalist Alison Stephenson has perhaps woken the impresario? His rant in November triggered an online petition calling for major sponsors to withdraw their support for his radio show, owned and run by Southern Cross Austereo. Coles, Bunnings, Vodafone, McDonald’s, Ford and others were among the first to announce their decision to boycott the 2DayFM host. Sandilands said he regretted that his staff had to “bear the brunt” of his actions. READ MORE


The Sandilands Money Exodus Continues

Kyle SandilandsIt seems even without Sandilands around the exodus of money hasn’t slowed at radio network Austrereo? That beast that is Kyle Sandilands, may be on his summer break, but it hasn’t stopped advertisers from extending their boycott of his breakfast radio show. In a new blow to Southern Cross Austereo, at least 15 major brands have pledged to not advertise on any of Sandilands’s programs in 2012. Some of big brand names including Coles, Bunnings, Vodafone, McDonald’s, Ford and Blackmores said their boycott of the 2Day FM host would extend into next year. The Sandilands debacle started after a female journalist wrote a review of Seven’s Kyle and Jackie O television show which aired on November 21. The following morning Sandilands launched into an on-air attack of the News Ltd journalist. A statement released by Australian grocery behemoth Coles, on the Change.org website Tuesday said: “Our very clear position in relation to the offensive and inappropriate comments made by Kyle Sandilands remains that we are not and will not advertise on programs hosted by him.” The gorgeous Jackie O must be wondering who she’s going to be sat next to in the new year? READ MORE


The Sandilands Exodus Continues

It seems even an exodus of money won’t quiet Kyle Sandilands? The enormous mouth of the kiwi radio personality has churned out some rubbish in it’s time. Sandilands was pulled from the air more than once in 2009 after one bad taste stunt turned into several absolutely shameful acts:  “Magda Szubanski would lose more weight in a concentration camp” and then of course there was the moral high Sandilands reached when a 14 year old girl who he’d had hooked up to a lie detector revealed she was raped when she was 12. Sandilands’ latest on-air rant against journalist Alison Stephenson will not likely get him permanently removed from any form of lens or microphone? It will cost Austero a pretty penny though!

On-air, Sandilands branded Ms Stephenson “a fat bitter thing”, a “fat slag” and a “little troll” after she wrote an article critical of his Seven Network TV show A Night With The Stars. Sandilands threatened to “hunt down” the news.com.au journalist.

While it’s little surprise that more high-profile companies are pulling advertising dollars from the Austereo network’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, it will however be a major surprise if Austereo’s lackluster management does much more than it’s usual 2 week suspension of the tiresome Sandilands. Having someone with moral fortitude or talent  has never been a focus for Austereo, a shock jock without a thought, seems to be the future of inane radio.

Even as the dollars exodus continues, it’s unlikely we’ll ever be rid of the ranting Sandilands, the math is pretty simple, his shock sells! Read the full article »»»»
