Sydney, 30 August 2010: To meet Australia’s insatiable appetite for mobile internet and entertainment, Vodafone and 3 have once again increased the amount of data included in their contract caps.

Vodafone and 3 deliver great value offers on the iPhone 4 and Android-powered Sony Ericsson X10 which are now available for $0 upfront on a new 59 Promo Cap on a 24-month contract. The 59 Promo Cap includes $650 worth of call value, 2GB of data, and Unlimited standard SMS and MMS. The 59 Promo Cap is available to new and existing customers who connect or upgrade to a new 24-month contract between 25 August and 25 November 2010.

There’s also more data in all postpaid Caps from $19 to $99 per month for new and upgrading customers, with at least double and up to four times the amount of data included on all Caps except the $99 Unlimited Cap for the same price.

“Vodafone and 3 customers now get a whole lot more for their money,” said John Casey, Director of Marketing at Vodafone Hutchison Australia. “Our customers’ affinity with mobile internet and social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter is growing day by day, so we’re meeting that demand by increasing the data in our caps.”

“iPhone 4 is very hot right now, and Android is the next big thing in mobile phones and the Android based Sony Ericsson X10 is a great device, so making both available for $0 upfront is something we know our customers will love,” said John Casey.

  1. Introducing layout themes and styles in FileMaker Pro 13

    FileMaker Pro, help, inspector, macworld australiaIf you are reading this, you are most likely aware of the benefits offered by FileMaker Pro 13, from streamlining your business’ data to organising projects, but how do you make your FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go database solutions look the part?

    This is where layout themes and styles come in.

    Would you like the layout to show your business logo when your employees are entering data into the database? Would you like to create conformity across all pages, maybe with a colour theme that matches your business?

    In order to increase usability for your database, a well-designed layout will make the solution both appealing to look at, but also more efficient – as those entering or viewing data will be able to easily navigate the fields in front of them.

    What is a style?

    In FileMaker Pro, a style is the way a layout object, layout part and the database’s background appear. This encompasses the colour or transparency of objects and backgrounds, the style of line used within the layout, the borders of objects and parts, the shape of objects, the shadows outside or inside an object’s border, and the display state of an object.

    For example, when your draw a square on your layout, the initial appearance of the square will be determined by the theme currently being used by the layout. The colour of the square, the lines that define it and any shadow that appears are all differing styles that add up to make a theme.

    The initial theme is called the default and ensures that all objects added to the layout carry a similar look. So, if you add a second square to the layout, it will have the same colour and borders. Though this does not have to be the case if you would like to differentiate them.

    And a theme?

    A theme is the collection of a number of styles used in a layout. Themes are the full picture of how your layout or report appears, and encompass all of the individual styles applied to objects, parts and the background. The theme does not affect the way a layout functions, but when you apply a theme to a layout it will alter the way it looks and feels.

    Making alterations

    Adjusting a style in a theme is very simple. If you click on the object, layout part or background you would like to alter, open the Inspector and head to the Appearances tab, you will see the Style label field at the top. This indicates the current style.  If no changes have been made, it will likely read as ‘Default’.

    Alter the style of the object, layout part or background by editing the property settings on the Appearance tab of the Inspector. Once you have made your layout look the way you would like, select the red arrow that will have appeared as you were making your changes and click ‘Save As New Style’.

    Type in a new name for your style and press OK. Continue to create as many additional styles as you would like in your layout. If you would like to apply a style to multiple objects or modify a style slightly between two objects, your previous styles will be available in the Styles list on the Style tab of the Inspector.

    Once you have made all of the changes you would like, you have the option of creating a new theme or saving the changes to the current theme.
