Australian iPhone 4 users to get free cases

Optus is also providing free cases to iPhone 4 customers

Apple has confirmed Australian iPhone 4 buyers will receive a free case until 30 September.

Following widely reported reception problems in the US when the iPhone 4 is held in a certain way, Apple announced earlier this month that all iPhone 4 buyers will receive a free case from Apple, or a rebate on a previously purchased case.

Apple has confirmed the same will occur in Australia. iPhone 4 customers are required to download a free iPhone 4 case app from the App Store (iPhone 4 case program), sign in with their iTunes account and place an order for the case, which will then be delivered.

The free cases on offer in Australia are Apple's Bumper Case, and a number of third-party cases including the Incase Snap, Belkin Shield Micra, Griffin Motif, Reveal and Perforated Silicone, Speck Fitted and PixelSkin HD.

Optus confirmed it would offer a free Apple bumper case for all iPhone 4 customers. "To ensure Optus customers have the best possible experience with their new iPhone 4, Optus will be providing free bumpers to all customers from launch on July 30," said an Optus spokesperson. "This will be a free, optional extra for all Optus iPhone 4 customers." the offer also applies to Virgin Mobile, a subsidiary of Optus in Australia.

Neither Telstra nor VHA is following Optus' lead, instead relying on Apple to handle the free case process.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.
