Internet Gold Video : Kangaroo street fight goes viral – and is it fake?

by Will Corry on October 8, 2014

Take two kangaroos having an all-out brawl in the middle of a residential New South Wales add one quick-thinking guy with a video camera, plus a balletic Tchaikovsky soundtrack, and the result is Internet gold.

In one of those “only in Australia” moments, Rodney Langham noticed two male 'roos duking it out just outside his home in New South Wales recently, so he grabbed his camera, stepped outside and pushed play.

Chat apps threaten to siphon ad dollars from social media giants / Chat apps “demand attention”

by Will Corry on September 29, 2014

With 21 million people following her on Facebook and 18 million on Twitter, pop singer Ariana Grande can’t personally chat with each of her loves, as she affectionately calls her fans.

So she and many other stars are spreading their messages through new-style social networks, via mobile apps that are more associated with private, intimate conversation, hoping that marketing in a cozier digital setting adds a breath of warmth and a dash of personality.

It’s the Internet’s equivalent of mailing postcards rather than plastering a billboard. [more…]

Now she's back promoting a line of lingerie, the new Intimate Britney Spears Anemone Collection. [more…]
