Virgin Mobile is giving a bonus 1GB of data to new and existing Australian customers as part of a mobile Internet promotion.

Running until 30 June, the 1GB offer is available for all post-paid and prepaid Virgin Mobile customers on mobile phone and mobile broadband plans. The 1GB of bonus data is valid for a period of three months.

Virgin Mobile's marketing director, Anthony Hearne, said the initiative allows Virgin Mobile members to fully experience mobile Internet.

"With the rise of smartphones, a lot of people can now access the Internet from their handset. But because we all use the Internet differently, we want to give our members the freedom to go where they want, rather than restricting them to one or two sites," he said.

As part of the initiative Virgin Mobile has also announced the "Surprise Gig Tour," a series of free music gigs around Australia announced at the last minute. The first surprise gig kicked off on Saturday night at Melbourne's Ding Dong lounge. The gig was hosted by Sir Richard Branson and featured a live performance by Australian band Wolfmother.

The remainder of the surprise gigs will be announced on Virgin Mobile's Facebook page, with the next scheduled event in Sydney set to feature a performance by American band MGMT.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
