OzEmail broadcasts Open Air event at Sydney's Bondi Beach

OzEmail Limited, Australia's biggest and hippest Internet service provider today announced the live Internet broadcast of Australia's "hugest" Open Air event at Sydney's Bondi Beach on Saturday 25th July, 1998.

Described as the quintessential youth festival of the 90s, the Volkswagen Open Air combines snowboarding, surfing, skating and a rock concert with some of Australia's leading bands including Regurgitator, The Avalanches and Pre-Shrunk.

In a whole day event, world class snowboarders, including winner of the 1998 US Extreme Games Andy Hetzel, as well as Kevin Jones and Mike Basich, will be among the competitors who take on the 70m high jump and 80 tonnes of man-made snow at Bondi Beach this weekend.

"With the Internet, it doesn't matter whether you live in Wagga Wagga or Helsinki, you can be brought directly to Bondi Beach with OzEmail's Open Air live netcast," said OzEmail President and Chief Operating Officer, David Spence.

OzEmail and its Web-based sports service, Total Sportswatch, have established a Web site dedicated to the Open Air event. Located at http://www.hugeair.sportswatch.com.au, the Open Air Website will commence its official netcast at 12pm AEST on Saturday 25 July.

In addition to the live Netcast and chat sessions, OzEmail's online music service, Chaos Music Market, is running an Open Air competition. The winner will score a MP Man signed by Regurgitator. The MP Man is a portable walkman for storing and listening to MPeg3 files and is valued at $499. To win, Internet users must visit the Open Air Web site and complete the competition form.

The OzEmail Open Air Netcast will be archived and available for viewing at:http://www.hugeair.sportswatch.com.au from early next week.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
