Aussie firm scores windfall from Intel 64 Fund

Local software vendor Aurema has received funding from the Intel 64 Fund to develop resource management technology for Intel processors.

Aurema, which specialises in active resource management technologies, received an undisclosed amount of funding from the quarter of a billion dollar equity fund which invests in emerging tools and technologies for Internet, enterprise and workstation solutions.

The investment will support the company's development of an optimised version of its ARMTech resource management technology for Intel's IA-64 products, starting with the Intel Itanium processor.

Karl Rodrigues, business development manager for Intel Capital, said: "There is technology in Australia at the high end of the computing space. This is a great general credit to information technology in Australia."

Aurema's president and CEO, Richard Osborne, said the investment will raise the profile of Australia.

"We have IT investment opportunities throughout Australia. We have world class intellectual property. What we are short on, as a nation, is strong management technology leadership. More and better technology leaders would raise our calibre as a nation."

Intel coordinates the Intel 64 Fund, with Compaq, Dell, HP, Intel, NEC, and SGI as co-investors while a swag of major US companies, such as Boeing, the Bank of America, SmithKline Beecham and Ford Motor Company, swells the list of investors.

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.
