Also this week, we're starting to see traditional content providers starting to hurt as online content delivery starting to take hold. This is evident with the Foxtel admitting it is in a vicious circle of decline and its imminent merger with Austar.

KLIK is a camera app that uses face recognition to let you quickly tag your friends in real-time. * Note: KLIK requires a Facebook account, and iOS 4.3 or above.

Fire up KLIK and watch as your friends' names instantly appear next to their faces before or after you snap a photo. If KLIK doesn't recognize a face - snap a photo, tap "Tag Me" over unrecognized faces to pick a name, and then save the photo (no need to share). The more photos you save, the better KLIK gets. When you're not taking photos, check out the feeds for nearby, friend and your photos.
