Telstra offers audio Facebook status updates with Blurtl

Blurtl Facebook service provides 30 second audio status updates

Telstra has launched a new Facebook service called Blurtl that lets you record 30 second audio clips to post as a status update, or as a message on a friend's wall.

You'll first need to give permission for Telstra's Blurtl app to access your Facebook page, and then you can call 0458 BLURTL (0458 258 785) from any Australian mobile phone to record your message. Once you have finished recording, the Blurtl audio message will appear as your Facebook status.

The Blurtl service itself is free to use on Facebook, though a phone call to 0458 BLURTL to record your message is charged at the standard call rate.

"Whether recording your baby's first words to share with all your Facebook friends, leaving a personalised, audio Happy Birthday wall post to your mate in London, or updating your status with a quirky voice message that you're engaged, Blurtl will add an extra dose of personality to Aussie Facebook pages," said Telstra Consumer Executive Director Rebekah O'Flaherty.

To use Blurtl, visit Telstra's Facebook page.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
