Aussie Bites Pop!

Ahh, a book about being 10, hating your teacher and complaining about girl germs! This is a story about a young boy, Jack, who wishes to discover why a weasel would go "pop" in the children's rhyme "Pop goes the weasel". After deciding that it probably doesn't relate to flatulence, Jack decides to search for his answer on the Net.

With his curiosity in tow he accidentally conjures up a cyber weasel, named Pop, from the depths of cyberspace. This is where the fun starts. Pop plans to enjoy himself and has a hankering for movies, PlayStation games and popcorn. And the amount of mischief the little weasel brings is enough to keep Jack on his toes. The colourful antics of the weasel and the mishaps of the intensely curious Jack, set against a backdrop of frustrated teachers, firmly plant this Internet adventure in a world to which kids can relate.

While the build-up and search for an answer was good, the ending was a little disappointing. And, unfortunately, the illustrations seem underdeveloped, whereas they could have complemented the story well. Certainly a book for computer buffs in the upper primary grades.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

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

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.

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.
