The 2017 Grammy Awards kick off at 12pm AEDST today, with highlights including tributes to both George Michael and Prince, who just had his entire back catalogue made available on Spotify and Apple Music.

In the past day, boxing fans on the internet went a little bit nuts. The long-awaited (like, decade-long) rematch between Anthony Mundine and Danny Green — a controversial 2006 fight itself — wasn't really the reason, though.

That match was enough to get a Holden mechanic from Brisbane to stream the fight to the world using Facebook Live video on his phone. Foxtel, though, wasn't exactly happy.
Virtual reality finally arrived. Self-driving cars started wandering streets and past red lights. SpaceX aborted a rocket launch four times within a week. Samsung started strong with the Galaxy S7 and finished with the Note7 nuking itself into orbit while you slept.
