Foxtel's slashing the price on its NBN/TV bundles

Image Description

The annual EOFY sales aren't just about buying a new laptop or phone for cheap, you can also find a great bargain for your broadband and TV needs. And it's made even better when they're both bundled into the same package.

Foxtel is now doing just that with its NBN and TV bundle which, just for EOFY, now gets you three months of free unlimited broadband when you sign up for a 12-month plan. But that's not all – we did say it was a bundle!

You'll also bag yourself some of the best entertainment streaming services at a lower price for the first three months (on those same 12-month plans) with Foxtel's 50+ channels to cover you from TV shows to movies, even sports.

And then there's the bonus Google Nest Hub Gen 2 smart display – valued at AU$149 – thrown into the mix for free as well.

Not only does that take care of your broadband needs, with speeds of up to 50Mbps, but your binge-watching needs are also satisfied in that one package.

Foxtel NBN + TV bundle | three months free NBN + streaming discounts and bonus Google Nest Hub 2 

Foxtel has a fantastic EOFY deal on right now that offers three months of free internet, plus discounted streaming for the first three months on a 12-month plan. You'll also get a bonus Google smart display thrown in at no extra cost. That means you can stream unlimited content from Foxtel 50+ channels for movies, TV shows, sports and kids programs.

But hurry as this offer ends June 30!

Here's what you get

The nitty-gritty details are as follows:

The offer is only available on the annual plans. There are two 12-month plans to choose from – Premium and Platinum. For the first three months, your NBN cost is AU$0/month, after which it becomes the usual AU$65/month.

The Premium TV package is discounted to just AU$75/month for the first three months, after which it reverts to AU$144/month. The Platinum option includes a Netflix subscription and will cost you AU$99/month for the first three months – from month four, it will set you back AU$164/month.

If you sign up now for the Premium bundle, all you'll need to pay right now will be AU$79/month for three months for streaming. There are no set-top box fees, setup fees or connection fees. You won't even need to pay for a Wi-Fi modem.

Similarly, the Platinum bundle will only cost you AU$99/month for the first three months if you sign up now, including all your expenses from broadband to setup fees.

From months 4-12, though, you will be paying AU$144/month and AU$164/month respectively. After your 12-month plan ends, the full price for both bundles increases to AU$189/month and AU$214/month respectively.

  • Microsoft Teams will now show people your LinkedIn profile

    Microsoft is looking to bring two of its most successful software offerings in recent months closer together with another significant update to its video conferencing platform.

    The company has announced it is working on a new feature that will allow LinkedIn profiles to be displayed in Microsoft Teams.

    The information will be displayed in personal chats, meaning colleagues can find out more about their co-workers, say when planning for a project or looking to help with onboarding.

    Microsoft Teams LinkedIn

    The official entry in the Microsoft 365 roadmap notes that the change will allow users to see LinkedIn profiles of their colleagues in 1:1 chats only to begin with. Users will be able to view information on a person's profile via the LinkedIn tab in the 1:1 chat panel.

    The update is still currently in development, with Microsoft projecting a March 2022 release date at the moment. The tool is also noted as being generally available to all global users across Microsoft Teams web and desktop versions.

    Microsoft bought LinkedIn back in 2016 for around $26.2 billion as it looked to get a foothold in the social media space. The move has so far proved successful, with Microsoft's most recent financial results showing that Productivity and Businesses Processes, which includes Microsoft 365 and LinkedIn, was up 19% YoY to $15.9 billion.

    However, the site has struggled to break into the potentially-lucrative Chinese market, with Microsoft forced to launch InCareer, a completely new app solely for Chinese users after being forced to withdraw its standard offering.

    Elsewhere, however, LinkedIn appears to be enjoying strong growth in other markets, with Microsoft recently announcing the launch of its worldwide Services Marketplace for freelancers and adding a Hindi option, opening the service up to over 600 million speakers globally.  

    Microsoft Teams continues to go from strength to strength, with the latest figures from the company showing that the service now boasts over 270 million monthly active users (MAUs). 

    Recent data collected by software firm StarLeaf found almost all (97%) businesses say that tools such as Zoom, Webex and Teams are now essential to their operations.

    More than half (57%) of the 2,000 UK-based respondents claim their company would not be able to operate for more than an hour without access to their communications tools, while 27% admitted they would struggle to function for even 30 minutes.

  • Meta Builder Bot concept happily builds virtual worlds based on voice description

    The Metaverse, that immersive virtual world where Meta (née Facebook) imagines we'll work, play, and interact with friends and family is also where we may someday build entire worlds with nothing but our voice.

    During an online AI development update delivered, in part, by Meta/Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday (February 23), the company offered a glimpse of Builder Bot, an AI concept that allows the user to build entire virtual experiences using their voice.

    Standing in what looked like a stripped-down version of Facebook's Horizon Worlds' Metaverse, Zuckerberg's and a co-worker's avatars asked a virtual bot to add an island, some furniture, clouds, a catamaran, and even a boombox that could pay real music to the environment. In the demonstration, the command phrasing was natural and the 3D virtual imagery appeared instantly, though it did look a bit like the graphics you'd find in Nintendo's Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

    The development of Builder Bot is part of a larger AI initiative called Project CAIRaeoke, which is an end-to-end neural model for building on-device assistance.

    Zuckerberg explained that current technology is not yet equipped to help us explore an immersive version of the internet that will ultimately live in the Metaverse. While that will require updates across a whole range of hardware and software, Meta believes AI is the key to unlocking advancement that will lead to, as Zukerberg put it, "a new generation of assistants that will help us explore new worlds".

    “When we’re wearing [smart] Glasses, it will be the first time an AI system will be able to see the world from our perspective,” he added. A key goal here is for the AI they're developing to see as we do and, more importantly, learn about the world as we do, as well.

    It's unclear if Builder Bot will ever become a true part of the burgeoning Metaverse, but its skill with real-time language processing and understanding how parts of the environment should go together is clearly informed by the work Meta is doing.

    Zuckerberg outlined a handful of other related AI projects, all of which will eventually feed into a Metaverse that can be accessed and used by anyone in the world.

    These include "No Language Left Behind," which, unlike traditional translation that often uses English as a mid-translation point, can translate languages directly from the source to the translation language. There's also the very Star Trek-like "Universal Speech Translator", which would provide instantaneous speech-to-speech translation across all languages, including spoken languages.

    “AI is going to deliver that in our lifetimes,” said Zuckerberg.

    Meta is also investing heavily in self-supervised learning (SSL) to build human-like cognition into AI systems. Instead of training with tons of images to help the AI identify patterns, the system is fed raw data and then asked to predict the missing parts. Eventually, the AI learns how to build abstract representations.

    An AI that can understand abstraction could complete an image just from a few pieces of visual information, or generate the next frame of a video it's never seen. It could also build a visually pleasing virtual world with only your words to guide it.

    For those full-on freaked out by Meta's Metaverse ambitions, Zuckerberg said that the company is building the Metaverse for everyone and they are "committed to build openly and responsibly" while protecting privacy and preventing harm.

    It's unlikely anyone will take his word for it, but we look forward to watching the Metaverse's development.
