A global licensing deal for an SA-developed water filtration breakthrough is just the first step by SA commercialisation company ITEK to put the innovative technology on the world stage.

As 4700 Victorians households this month receive NBN Co notices about disconnecting their copper telephone lines, iiNet is advising consumers not to panic about migrating to the National Broadband Network.
Since May, NBN Co has progressively announced areas in Australia that have reached the deadline for ageing copper telephone networks to be disconnected permanently as part of moving to the NBN.
From Sunday, October 5, 2600 South Morang households and businesses will join that urgent migration list. About 2100 premises at Bacchus Marsh hit the deadline on the same day.
However iiNet NBN Product Manager Rachael McIntyre advises consumers that there is no need to panic about this impending deadline. “While phone and Internet services won’t stop working on that date, they will shortly, so it really is time for people to upgrade to the NBN,” she said.

An out-of-this-world Internode radio ad campaign has won an international advertising accolade, announced last week in New York City.
The Klingon radio ad campaign, which Internode launched in the middle of last year, secured a bronze CLIO award in the audio category for Australian advertising agency Marketforce.
The ads - which were spoken completely in Klingon, the language of the knobbly-headed aliens from Star Trek - was also a sales success for Internode due to their quirkiness and memorability. Individual ad spots in Klingon and Elvish (from Lord of the Rings) were also shortlisted in the CLIOs.
