Telstra has annouced it is spending $250 million to fix its mobile and fixed broadband network. Over the next 12 months, $100 million will go upgrading its “core network”, $100 million to increase its ADSL capacity, and the $50 million upgrade to its mobile network.

Scientists have invented a battery that operates on the same principals as an hourglass. It’s just a proof-of-concept design at the moment, but Chang et al. are confident they can build a viable prototype.

And you won't just be playing two separate copies of the same game, which would get annoying. Any progress you make in a game will be saved and shared to both your PC and your Xbox One, in addition to your achievements and any downloadable content you've purchased on either platform for a particular game.
