Streaming on Foxtel Anytime in September

Super hero series Supergirl s.1 and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow s.1 take flight, plus Mr. Robot s.1-2 and Keeping up with the Kardashians s.12; and ultra-blockbuster films Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 2, and more

Foxtel today announced the September line up of complete seasons that will join the hit shows already streaming on Foxtel Anytime^. In the lead up to their second season premieres, Supergirl season 1 and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 1 will provide the perfect chance to catch up on the action.

In a modern twist on the classic story, Supergirl introduces us to Kara Danvers, aka Kara Zor-El, cousin of Superman (Melissa Benoist) who, at 12 years old, also escaped doom on planet Krypton to find protection on Earth. Raised by her adoptive family, the Danvers, Kara hides her powers until adulthood, when she comes into her own. As National City’s newest superhero, Kara finds herself juggling a complex personal life with new found responsibilities and very human relationships.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow follows a ragtag group of superheroes (and villains) who, after witnessing a catastrophic vision of Earth’s future, is brought together as an unlikely force destined to reroute the course of future history in order to save the planet.

Also joining Foxtel Anytime in September is season 2 of the Golden Globe Award-winning drama Mr. Robot. The series that became one of the most talked about shows on TV shadows Elliot (Rami Malek, The Pacific), a computer programmer working as a cyber-security engineer by day and a vigilante hacker by night, who finds himself at a crossroads when a mysterious leader (Christian Slater) of a hacker group recruits him to destroy the firm he’s paid to protect. Season 2 picks up one month after the events of season 1’s dramatic conclusion that left audiences stunned. New episodes of season 2 arrive in September alongside season 1 already streaming on Foxtel Anytime.

Reality drama is never in short supply with Keeping up with the Kardashians, the reality series that looks in on the personal and professional lives of the Kardashian-Jenner brood. New episodes from season 12 continue to arrive on Foxtel Anytime through September to bring us up to speed on the exploits of Kim, Kourtney and Khloé and their friends and family.

Foxtel Anytime’s key movies in September include the latest instalment of the most famous sci-fi saga ever, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, along with all films from the Star Wars franchise, rekindling the Jedi spirit. The final episode of the dystopian thriller The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 also joins the movie line up, along with the next chapter of the action-filled James Bond series, Spectre, plus Sylvester Stallone brings Rocky back to train the son of his former opponent and friend in Creed.

Crucial Launches Easy Fix For Slow Computers By using memory and SSD upgrades

Crucial Launches Easy Fix For Slow Computers
By using memory and SSD upgrades

SYDNEY, 23 August 2016 – According to Crucial when your computer begins to slow down, and unresponsiveness and long load times become the norm, there is now an undisputed and particularly easy way to solve the problem.

Graphics and images are attached to this e-mail and embedded in the attached Word document

Micron Consumer Products Group Marketing Manager APAC Mathew Luu explained, “The minutes you’re losing matter, and you don’t want to spend lots of time and money to solve the problem – you just want a computer that works as it should. Fixing a slow computer can seem like a daunting proposition, but it’s not; if the problem isn’t a virus or malware, just add more memory and an SSD. These adjustments, which don’t require advanced computer skills, can be done in minutes and instantly deliver lasting results.

Memory and your storage drive (either a hard drive or an SSD) are small components inside your system, but you use them to do almost everything. Every time you press the power button, double-click an icon, save a document, move your mouse cursor, or hit a key on the keyboard, you’re using memory or storage. When your memory or storage aren’t able to keep up, you end up waiting on each and every one of these actions, which adds up.

Crucial DRAM Sr. Product Marketing Manager Jeremy Mortenson said, “Anyone who owns a computer has at some point had to deal with it slowing down. It’s a familiar problem, but how do you solve it? In most situations, aside from a virus or malware infection, an SSD and memory upgrade is one of your best bets for instantly delivering tangible, reliable results.”

Memory is the pool of resources your system uses to get things done. The more memory you have, the more resources your system has at its disposal, meaning it can do things faster – and handle more things at once. Loading files and apps stored on an SSD is like flipping a light switch – it’s almost instant. When performing everyday storage tasks, SSDs are on average 6x faster than hard drives.*

Mortenson continued, “Dealing with a slow computer can be excruciating. But there is hope – a memory and SSD upgrade can be one of the best ways to solve this problem. Get a lot of the time back that you spend waiting, and alleviate the stress that comes with it.”

The new technology in SSDs is what creates the major difference in performance. Since SSDs access data on cutting-edge flash memory chips rather than on outdated spinning platters, they operate at faster speeds, consume less power, and are more durable than hard drives because they don’t rely on small moving parts that are prone to failure.

Mortenson added, “SSDs beat hard drives in all phases of the performance game. Comparing a hard drive to an SSD is like comparing a horse-drawn carriage to a car. The difference is that real, and it’s transforming everything in the computer industry.”

The time spent waiting on a slow computer is frustrating – and it adds up. You don’t have to make monumental changes to fix a slow computer, just a few small, sustainable changes that deliver immediate and lasting results. The time you’re losing matters and now you can get it back with a simple and straightforward memory and SSD upgrade.

Jeremy Mortenson concluded, “Working smarter, not harder, is the key when you want to fix a slow computer. Don’t overwork yourself by trying gimmicks or perpetually restarting your computer – go for a simple memory and storage upgrade. These are your best, and smartest, bets for truly solving the problem.”

* Performance times based on internal lab testing conducted in August 2015. Each task was executed and timed after the system had undergone a fresh boot so that other factors and applications didn’t affect the reported load and boot times. Actual performance may vary based on individual system configuration. Test setup: 1TB Crucial MX200 SSD and 1TB HGST Travelstar® Z5K1000 internal hard drive, both tested on an HP® Elitebook® 8760W laptop, Intel® Core™ i7-2620M 2.70GHz processor, 4GB Crucial DDR3 1333 MT/s memory, BIOS Rev. F50 (5 August 2014), and Microsoft® Windows® 8.1 Pro 64-bit operating system.

I OWN AUSTRALIA’S BEST HOME Brand new locally-produced 10-part series premieres on Wednesday, September 28 at 8:30pm on LifeStyle HOME.

MEDIA RELEASE: MONDAY, AUGUST 22, 2016

LifeStyle HOME’s spectacular new property show I Own Australia’s Best Home takes a sticky beak inside some of the country’s most stylish and breathtaking abodes to find the owner of Australia’s Best Home.

Three renowned Australian experts, interior designers Gillian Khaw and Tim Leveson, and architect Nick Tobias, will scour Australia to find some of our most stunning homes, meet the owners and live with them for 24 hours to experience the day-to-day wonder of living in style.

I Own Australia’s Best Home isn’t just about great design, exclusive houses or luxury living; it’s about ordinary and extraordinary people who have toiled over the build, design or décor of their houses, people who have left their own idiosyncratic stamp on a property and people who feel proud enough to stand up and announce to the nation ‘I Own Australia’s Best Home!’

In each episode, three spectacular Australian homes will be the stars of the show, with Gillian, Tim and Nick taking a magnifying glass to these dwellings.

Tasked to each find an exceptional property to explore, they will spend 24 hours in these homes, getting to grips with and extolling all the great features that make the houses so special. They will get to know the owners and their families, and really find out what has driven them to design and build their houses and, of course, what it feels like to live in some of Australia’s most beautiful homes.

The ultimate decision is up to the viewers who will then vote for which of the three spectacular residences go through to the Final.

Hannah Barnes, General Manager of Foxtel’s LifeStyle Channels says: “I Own Australia’s Best Home is the ultimate in property porn. Gillian, Nick and Tim are a knockout and great addition to the Lifestyle family. I Own Australia’s Best Home showcases some of the most incredible homes across the whole of Australia and proves that a home is much more than a house.”

Packed with great design ideas, amazing architecture and inspirational interiors, I Own Australia’s Best Home is compelling viewing for anyone interested in making their house a home.

I Own Australia’s Best Home is a FremantleMedia Australia production for Foxtel.
