Are Sky's Olympic restrictions justifiable or is it fighting against the future?

This week, Sky provoked ire in the nation’s news publishers by applying a range of conditions on those wanting to use highlights as part of their reportage. Sky is, of course, within its rights to limit the use of footage, which it paid handsomely for. But in an era of rampant live streaming and social media use, is this an example of sticking their finger in the dyke? And what can we learn from the NFL and the NBA?

RNZ scraps its online comment section

After 18 months of having its comment section switched on, RNZ has decided it will no longer allow comments on its website and it will phase out the capability on its site by the end of the week, instead encouraging comments on its social media channels. We chat to RNZ's Megan Whelan about why it made the decision and what it means for its audience.

Fairfax and Microsoft call on a doctor, a scientist, a DJ and other interesting Kiwis to push the Surface Pro 4

Microsoft is doing a pretty good job of reaching younger people through its marketing. It’s obviously noted that filming an ad of a laptop, slow panning over all of its sexy angles isn’t quite going to cut it anymore, at least not for all audiences. So recently, it teamed up with Fairfax for a content partnership called 'The Change Makers' to spruik its Surface Pro 4.
