NBN Co paid AU$330,000 to use project-management methodology in six sites, but only used it in one despite FttP rollout improvements.
It's hard to know which is more interesting: That the NBN Co 2014-17 Corporate Plan readily admits that we still know almost nothing concrete about this government's multi-technology mix rollout, or that a leaked final version of the never-released 2013-16 plan suggests the previous government was indeed getting its act together.
The Dutch telco has bought out its joint venture partner, becoming sole owner of the fibre broadband provider.
A number of recent acquisitions are showing the importance of fibre, and particularly dark fibre, in determining the future of the cloud.
This week, NBN Co commenced construction on its one millionth premises, the company said in a Senate Estimates hearing, where it also revealed that it has yet to gain access to any part of the hybrid fibre-coaxial networks that it expects will make up almost a third of its final footprint.

Introducing the iPhone 3G
I can't wait for the new iPhone to come out — mainly because I'm so dog-tired of listening to the never-ending screeds of rumour mongering nonsense speculating on what functionality the device will have that come out every single day. So I've decided to join in. I'm 100 per cent convinced the new iPhone will run Vista and have WiMax connectivity. In fact I'd bet my house on it.
The Nokia N78 is starting to become available and I had the chance to try the European 3G model. A North American version with support for U.S. 3G networks should be coming soon. The N78 includes WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, S60 Feature Pack 2, FM transmitter, and more in a slim form factor.

The N82 is available now in the U.S. from the Nokia site as an unlocked device for US$564.

In just over a month, you will not be able to use your cellphone in your automobile in Washington State without some kind of hands-free solution. Hands-free laws are in place now or coming soon to many other states and areas of the world so now is a good time to take a look at some of the solutions available to you besides the standard wired hands-free kit included with your cellphone purchase.I had the opportunity to personally evaluate the Etymotic hf2 wired iPhone stereo headphones, Etymotic EtyBlu Bluetooth headset, Aliph Jawbone 2 Bluetooth headset, Nokia BH-903 Bluetooth stereo headphones, and Spracht Bluetooth speakephone. They all have their strengths and weaknesses and it really comes down to your own personal preference when selecting a hands-free kit that fits your specific needs. However, I did find a new personal favorite in the bunch that I plan to use myself now that I can no longer just hold my phone to my head and drive.
It's going to be at least a few more weeks before we can buy a 3G iPhone, which reportedly will have some sort of black treatment to the rear panel. In the mean while I took it upon myself to create my own.
