State of Origin in 3D world first

Turns out you didn't have to be there after all. Australian channel Nine is set to make techno history by offering the world's first free-to-air 3D sports match with its screening of tonight's State of Origin game. The multidimensional match up follows Foxtel becoming the first Australian broadcaster to use the new 3D technology when it screened Monday's Socceroos v All Whites match on its dedicated 3D trial channel. While Fox commentators were effusive in praise of the new technology, one of the criticisms about Monday's game was that the cameras were positioned too low to the ground. Those lucky enough to be watching in full 3D glory will be hoping the glitches have been ironed out for tonight's match. Australian viewers will also be able to watch up to 15 World Cup matches in 3D on SBS.

How is this still a thing? Reader's Digest curates 'articles of lasting interest' for nearly a century

In the last 97 years, the world has suffered the Great Depression, countless wars, the rise of tyranny, innumerable natural and man-made disasters and political scandals. We’ve mourned the rise of terrorism and celebrated the invention of the internet. We’ve put humans on the moon and explored that last frontier, oppressive regimes have fallen and human rights milestones have made history. Throughout it all, one thing has remained a constant of bathroom magazine baskets and rest home libraries: Reader’s Digest. Caitlin Salter talks to Australiasian group editor Louise Waterson about how this general interest publication has stood the test of time, and what the future holds.
