  • Having been given provisional but not final approval for its Emirates partnership, Qantas has begun selling tickets on the joint Qantas-Emirates network for departures from March 31. One exception: tickets to New Zealand, which have been the focus of much of the regulatory concern over the arrangement.
  • We've only had R18+ as a rating for computer games since the beginning of the year, and we're seeing an increasing range of titles score the rating. Junglist at Kotaku notes that Army Of Two: The Devil's Cartel has become the third to score the rating, for "high impact violence".
  • Having been ditched by Optus last year, the Boost Mobile brand has reappeared at Telstra. As Luke points out at Gizmodo, the unlimited deal on offer is the same as with Optus, simply on a different network.
