Spark Stems Off into Internet TV

With the release of it’s new Internet TV service, Spark is seeking out 70,000 lightboxers. These lightboxers or users will be among the first in New Zealand to trial Lightbox.

“It is unclear whether 70,000 lightboxers is a bit optimistic for Spark, a company which previously focused solely on telecommunications. When compared to one of Spark’s main competitors, large long-term competitor Sky, this is even more challenging. Sky is currently in over 865,000 homes around New Zealand. With a multitude of channels to choose from, many New Zealanders may need convincing that Internet TV truly is a better alternative.

However Lightbox still brims with potential. Instead of being stuck watching TV in a single location, lightboxers can watch shows from wherever they please using mobile devices. Furthermore there is no installation costs or extra requirements- just Internet access. Furthermore there are no ads so users pay only for what they want to see. Lightboxers can also watch “primetime TV” at whatever time they deem primetime- they are not restricted by program schedules.”

Fujitsu Heat Pumps Website Usability

Screen shot 2014-09-24 at 8.00.33 PM

The Fujitsu heat pumps website has proved difficult to navigate and read. The information is very compacted and is set out in three columns causing it to be an eyesore. The side links are formatted to appear like banner advertisements which cause them to be brushed over even though they are just internal links.

The site does have a good load time though. And all links appear to be working. These are the pages only redeeming points; apart from these it is an ineffective page.
