Big Pond casts net dreams

Telstra signed a deal with OziSoft, the exclusive Sega Dreamcast distributor in Australia, to secure the rights. Gamers will get access through Dreamkey, the Sega Dreamcast internet access kit. It is connected to a TV and an ordinary telephone socket.

Telstra's online services managing director, John Rolland, said the breakthrough had taken online access out of the office and put it into the lounge room, through a games console, for the first time.

He said game players would be attracted to the Sega Dreamcast console as it was the first 128-bit video game console released in Australia, and because it provided "amazingly good 3D graphics and gives people access to the next generation of video games".

"Users of the Sega Dreamcast console will have access to a wide variety of online information and services. They will be able to send and receive emails, chat and surf the web."

The Dreamkey software and special internet access voucher is available to all Dreamcast owners who return the free reply-paid card supplied with the Dreamcast. The Dreamcast voucher allows new andexisting Telstra Big Pond Home customers to receive bonus hours of internet access. The Dreamkey is included with all Australian Dreamcast console purchases.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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.
