The Game Developers Conference has been on all week in San Francisco and the big news has been around virtual reality. Sony put a price tag on its PlayStation VR headset and both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive were at the show with new and exciting applications. But oddly, it's the Sulon Q and its quest for a true VR PC experience that has us intrigued.

Napster founder Sean Parker is back in action, with Screening Room -- a streaming box and service that wants to give you newly released blockbuster movies in the comfort of your own home. It's mostly just a concept at the moment, but could it shake up the movie industry?

Last November we heard that Optus had bought the broadcast rights to the English Premiere League, better known as "soccer" in this country. At the time, we wondered what the telco would do with its newly acquired money-spinner. The answer? Make it for Optus customers only, but add a really confusing SBS deal to the whole shebang.

Finally, next week will see an announcement from Apple about a new iPhone. That can only mean one thing: It's time to run down all of the rumours and speculation about what we're likely to see come out of Cupertino.
