Major update coming to Netflix Australia

New website "from the ground up"

Major upgrades are coming to Netflix’s Australian website that are designed to make the service quicker and easier to use on tablets and touch enabled computers.

The upcoming website has been “built from the ground up” and is the first major upgrade to be made in four years.

Animations will guide users between separate webpages for an experience reminiscent of the applications used on smartphones and tablets.

Clicking the thumbnail of Daredevil, for instance, uses an animation to seamlessly populate a description, an episode overview, reviews and more.

People using a touchscreen device to stream Netflix will find the website easier to use as it supports more gestures. Rows of titles can be browsed easily a swipe at a time.

The update will help Netflix compete with local streaming video on demand services, such as Presto and Stan.

A global rollout starts today and it could take as long as two weeks for the updated website to go live in different countries. A “small number” of people may need to upgrade their browser for the new Netflix site to work.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
