Time to move on(line)

OK. So maybe movinghome.com.au doesn't have a Beam Me Up, Scotty transporter in place yet. But it covers just about everything else you could possibly need to worry about in your trek to a new place.

The site aims to make the dreaded task of moving house a little less painful for the 1.5 million people that change habitats each year in Australia. Dr Steve Hodgkinson, movinghome.com.au's CEO, summed up the rationale behind the site. "Movinghome.com.au provides home movers with easy access to a comprehensive range of essential moving-related services and tools at the one address available any time of the day or night. It's the sort of service the Australian market has been desperately seeking for some time. It's moving made easy," he said.

At present, the site assists registered users in acquiring a number of services to help them with their move. Some of these include changing their address, arranging insurance, disconnecting and connecting utilities, hiring a removalist or truck, and arranging storage. Other services being planned for the near future include home services such as cleaners and gardeners, trailer and mini-skip hire, purchase of packing materials, furniture and appliance purchase and rentals, renovations, painting and landscaping, and even pet transport.

In the process of creating the site, movinghome.com.au has forged links with more than 30 suppliers, including AAPT, Associated Marine Insurers, Delta Rentals, f2 Interactive Network, Grace Removals, Kennards Self Storage and Mortgage Choice.

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.
