Brief news items of note for Lifehacker readers, including Netflix’s change of heart on offering unmetered access and the benefits of cosplay.
- One of the more appealing aspects of Netflix’s Australian offering is that it doesn’t count against your download limit on iiNet or, from tomorrow, Optus. But don’t look for that kind of deal to pop up anywhere else: in its quarterly business update, Netflix says it regrets the move: ” We should have avoided that and will avoid it going forward.” Gizmodo has more.
- If posting updates to Facebook isn’t enough for you, there’s now a secondary update feature which lets you post brief comments that aren’t part of your main timeline. It’s an experimental feature that is being tested on the iOS and Android Facebook apps in Australia.
- Cosplay is good for you. Don’t take our word for it: a university student said so.
- James Packer is apparently Australia’s richest executive, based on share ownership. TPG head David Teoh is second.
