  • ABC on Android | James Purser
    I m also an avid consumer of the ABC online services mostly streaming ABC News 24 in the kitchen and accessing the ABCs large library of video and audio podcasts However generally I don t use my android devices to do this why Because the ABC has concentrated all its mobile efforts into building iDevice compatible apps I ve added screen caps from both the Android and iDevice apps below The one on the left is the Android app which is essentially the ABC mobile site contained in a small wrapper and the one on the right is the iDevice app Notice the difference By far and away the iDevice app is more functional and useful than the Android app Where the Android app only offers the very limited mobile site the iDevice app links through to the ABC News 24 stream offers direct links to recent episodes weather live radio streaming and so on Now I understand that for a long time the iDevice has owned the mobile market but Android is growing and growing fast and even if the ABC can t commit to building a dedicated app for it it needs to seriously overhaul it s mobile

  • A Media Inquiry into Print and Online Publications | James Purser
    media to digital and online platforms b The impact of this technological change on the business model that has supported the investment by traditional media organisations in quality journalism and the production of news and how such activities can be supported and diversity enhanced in the changed media environment c Ways of substantially strengthening the independence and effectiveness of the Australian Press Council including in relation to on line publications and with particular reference to the handling of complaints d Any related issues pertaining to the ability of the media to operate according to regulations and codes of practice and in the public interest Now the interesting thing here isn t the focus on News Papers over broadcast media To be a completely cynical bastard the government isn t having the same problems with broadcast media that is with the print media No the surprise here is the inclusion of Online Publications without any sort of definition of what actually constitutes an Online Publication for the purposes of the inquiry It s this lack of definition that gives me the confusions I mean merely posting this post onto my blog could be considered publishing online Posting to twitter is could
