Friday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
The Chaser: Really? Yesterday Craig Reucassel from The Chaser crashed a memorial service for the victims of the Bali bombing yesterday. That’s crap. I think The Chaser is so funny, but they’ve totally misfired on this occasion, don’t you think? More here.
Smileys: Really? Apparently those of us who punctuate our text messages with smileys or other emoticons could be paying DOUBLE the usual rate due to a coding issue which splits smiley texts into TWO. Telstra has confirmed that this may be happening after Melbourne man Toby Passauer picked up on the pattern when he was billed. The issue is apparently with the bullet point used in some emoticons and affects users with iPhones or Samsung phones (which is a lot of us!) Goodness. Stop emoting peeps. Read on here.
Twitter: Jeepers. It’s not only Twitter trolls getting themselves in trouble. An X Factor contestant, Josh Brookes, has been removed from the show after hopefully requesting nude photos from fans who were part of a Twitchat on Tuesday night. He’d already apparently been voted off the show, but is now disqualifed altogether (meaning no press opportunities or second chances for him!) It’s reported that Channel Seven acted swift to remove Brookes, citing breach of their social media policy. You would think that this was a no-brainer, especially when a social media policy exists to lay out the guidelines. Apparently not. More here.
Robyn Lawley: Ralph Lauren has signed Robyn Lawley, hoping to encourage women who are size 12 and above to buy their pieces. I think this is a step in the right direction and am looking forward to much more body and beauty diversity on the catwalk from all labels. It would be great to celebrate women without boxing them up into one ‘type’. Mix it up, fashion peeps! Read on here.
