Apple offers a refund to its Australian iPad customers over the 4G confusion.

Apple Australia has offered to refund those customers who bought the iPad 3 under the impression that device’s 4G capabilities would work. The company made the announcement in response to The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s demand to stop calling the device 4G capable, since it does not work on Australia’s 4G network.

The ACCC also accused Apple of misleading its customers, an accusation that the company firmly denies, saying that Apple had never claimed that the device would work on Australia’s 4G network.

Apple succeeded again in obtaining another delay for the launch of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia.

Apple managed to get another Australian delay for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on Sunday. Samsung was scheduled to ship the Android tablet to the said country on September 12 after the first delay, but they agreed to move it back to September 30 — almost a month after the original release date.

The company dropped its objections after Federal Court Judge Annabelle Bennett said it would only make sense to wait until a hearing, due in the last week of September, that would determine whether a preliminary injunction would be upheld. The original agreement not to sell Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia was based on the US version of the said tablet, but with a view to the Australian version being different. However, it’s now likely that the Australian Galaxy 10.1 is shipping with the custom TouchWiz interface preloaded.

The Australian video game industry is going through a recession over the past years and it is evident on the declining workforce and closing of major game development studios since 2008.

And the light at the end of the tunnel appears. Australian state officials passed a bill that will give $1.9 billion tax break for game developers to be allotted on research and development.

It’s a great thing political leaders have the initiative to create solutions in order to save a dying industry. The bill might possibly take effect next week.
