Melbourne IT to float

Domain name registry Melbourne IT will list on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) in an attempt to raise $110 million.

The company's core business, Internet Names Worldwide, registers Internet domain names for local and overseas businesses, although Melbourne IT also provides e-commerce solutions to IT companies.

The float will see the company's existing shareholder, Melbourne Enterprises International (a subsidiary of the University of Melbourne), reduce its stake in Melbourne IT to 15 per cent.

According to Melbourne IT's chairman, Rob Stewart, the company intends to "leverage its strength in the domain name registration market into related e-commerce areas".

Melbourne IT is currently the only issuer of .com.au names in Australia but also provides other generic domain names worldwide.

The company will offer 42.5 million shares at $2.20 a share.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
