My Latest Twitter Updates

  • How do China's youth view the rest of the world? http://auspol.info/h5X5Sl – interesting perspective from Beijing students (PBS @NewsHour) #
  • "Macarber" search for bodies… where do they get these vocabulary-challenged reporters from? #
  • So The Age wants $18 every 4 weeks for a digital only subscription. For $20 they'll home deliver hard copy 4 days per week (Fri-Mon). #
  • For $32/month they'll home deliver 7 days/week + digital delivery. #
  • @Wyld No, PressDisplay.com still a better option for identical digital service. #
  • @GrogsGamut Finally got an email from them now that my 4-week trial is about to expire. #
  • .@GrogsGamut And they've finally posted package prices on the website: http://auspol.info/f9IgBe #
  • @GrogsGamut No, this is for iPad, laptop, desktop digital delivery. iPad app released just before Christmas. #
  • @GrogsGamut It's a complete replica of the print edition. Even without an iPad you can trial the desktop version through that link. #
  • @GrogsGamut I've been waiting on prices because PressDisplay.com have an unbeatable deal foran identical service, also with iPad app. #
  • @johnalchin It's merely a replica of the print edition. It's a good app with different means of viewing articles, email, etc. But no extras. #
  • @GrogsGamut Not much, just the ability to view the hard copy on screen. You do get all sections, unlike the website. #
  • @GrogsGamut But until they add iPad features – audio, video, updated content during the day, etc – it's all very disappointing. #
  • @GrogsGamut And as I keep telling anyone who wants to listen, PressDisplay.com provides a far superior service – can pick & choose papers. #
  • @GrogsGamut I find it easy to read & quite useful if you're on the road or lying in bed but they're just trying to transpose print to iPad. #
  • @anthonybaxter Hehe… no! #
  • @pwcc It is literally a replica of the entire print edition. (PDF style but you can't move the file elsewhere) #
  • @GrogsGamut You should still take out the trial and use it on your desktop. That's why I like PressDisplay – can read papers worldwide. #
  • @GrogsGamut NYT, WashPost and other papers have great apps. New Zealand Herald has a superb free app. Fairfax just don't understand. #
  • Of course, when you have a conversation like this, the shonks and spammers come out of the works… #
  • .@coldsnacks That's good. I have no objection to paying. I will happily pay the NY Times when they paywall this year. It's about value. #
  • @pwcc The apps allow you to call up an article in text format if you don't like the replica version. PressDisplay has an audio option too. #
  • @Colvinius No. You can email text to anyone. The email I got today says keyword searching and sharing via Facebook are coming soon. #
  • @Colvinius I'm sure you use the NYT app where you can email, tweet and Facebook – it's amazing Fairfax are so far behind. #
  • @djmattyg007 I tweeted them just before – $18 for 4 weeks digital only; $20/4wks with 4 day delivery; $32/4wks for 7-day delivery & digital. #
  • @djmattyg007 Ah, not that I've heard yet. It's going to be based on usage – site still freely open but after set number of articles you pay. #
  • @djmattyg007 It's a model I like too. Unlike The Times they won't lose all their readership in one hit. #
  • @BiteTheDust I'm not sure but I think each paper is around 20mb – it's still audio and video that chews up bandwidth. #
  • @BiteTheDust Are you using the PressReader application they provide? I prefer it to the web version. #
  • "Work overseas" – is that a euphemism? http://twitpic.com/3s8sfc #
  • The Loss of a Good Man: http://auspol.info/hJHTzU – Bob Herbert on Sargent Shriver, buried yesterday. #
  • I have arrived for the party but no-one is here yet. http://twitpic.com/3sawlt #
  • Don's party is certainly not as good as the last one. #
  • I have left Don's party – best to party on elsewhere. It wasn't great but still good fun. #
  • Curtain call http://twitpic.com/3sbrr3 #
  • @prestontowers Well, depends where you're coming from. It isn't very good really bit we still enjoyed it. #
  • So what's going on with this tennis marathon from @PremierMikeRann? #
  • Why didn't I think of that, says Kevin Rudd… RT @washingtonpost: Irish premier resigns as party leader, stays as PM http://wapo.st/fCaB1m #
  • And at the centre of the Irish government crisis are the Greens. Take note. #
  • @WolvesHQ I can cope with the odd cycling tweet from him but not the complete history of modern tennis. #
  • @GhostWhoVotes But how? #
  • It's 90 kilometres long and 40 kilometres wide and it's heading for Swan Hill. http://auspol.info/eYQXAi #
  • As the flood costs mount, the first test of strength between Baillieu & Ryan looms: http://auspol.info/eFp9FH #
  • A former editor of major newspapers laments the obsession with celebrity: http://auspol.info/gnsE2u #
