Want to watch the Melbourne Cup today, but don't have a TV in your office? If you're stuck in front of a desk while the race that stops a nation takes place, here's everything you need to know -- from where to watch it online without paying a cent like Twitter, to where it's showing on free-to-air digital TV and Foxtel.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

To that end, within a month Freeview will do its bit to speed that push away from the big screen and onto mobiles with a single unified app that streams all 15 major FTA channels to your phone.
