Google launches Commerce Search in Australia

Online shopping search on offer for buyers and sellers

Google today announced the launch of its retail-friendly Commerce Search in Australia. The company says it will help Australian shoppers find products and help online retailers push their wares.

Will Easton, head of retail, technology and consumer products at Google Australia, wrote in a blog entry that Commerce Search would simplify online shopping.

"Commerce Search can improve the performance of sites with e-commerce checkout options, and those that simply allow people to browse and compare, all in a very cost effective way," he said. "We hope that making our infrastructure, skills and experience available will help boost Australia's important retail sector, making it even easier for Aussies to find what they're looking for and shop online, and leaving retailers free to focus on what they do best — retailing."

The pricing model for Google Commerce Search for retailers is based on the number of products and the number of search queries entered on a particular site each year, and starts at $25,000 per year.

Australia is the third country to have a local version of Commerce Search, following its launch in the US and UK late last year.

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.

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.

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.
