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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
