Rumours of a Nine Entertainment float flow in while talk of a Southern Cross merger ebbs, and the big miners are talking trim figures.

Rio Tinto is talking tough about cost cuts and asset sales as the boss of rival BHP Billiton sells a similarly frugal message. Elsewhere, Telstra has picked up a big contract with the Department of Defence, while Geoff Dixon and Mark Carnegie have swapped agitating Qantas to buying up more pubs.
