MySpace Australia yesterday announced the expansion of its local MySpaceTV platform with the launch of MySpaceTV Live.

Indie-rock band Death Cab for Cutie took to the stage yesterday afternoon to a crowd of nearly 600 at the Oxford Art Factory in Sydney as part of MySpaceTV’s first live concert stream. The free concert, held in cooperation with the Nokia Online Music Store, was broadcast globally through MySpaceTV to a potential audience of 115 million viewers worldwide.

However, the event didn’t exactly go off without a hitch. The 600-strong audience attending the event were a mix of journalists and members of the public who had won free tickets as part of a MySpace Australia competition. While most of the competition winners got in, some were denied entry for the majority of the concert.

Some competition winners, such as MySpace user 'Alex-and-her', were infuriated when they discovered they weren’t allowed entry until 10 minutes before the concert's end. He claimed that some MySpace users had made multiple copies of their tickets. In a comment submitted to the MySpaceTV Live Web site, Alex-and-her blamed MySpace Australia for not preventing this.

The event also launched the MySpace Road Tour, a three-week reality show which will see radio personality Jabba tour Australia and meet the 10 “most extraordinary” MySpace users. The show will be produced in cooperation with Fremantle Media, which is also producing premium content for the MySpaceTV platform.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
