Tandy set to go online

Tandy Electronics plans to have its entire inventory available online before the end of this financial year.

The site, due to be launched in the second quarter of 2000, will be based on its Canadian affiliate Radioshack's site which was launched in July this year.

"Our aim is to establish a very strong Web presence similar to that of our Canadian counterpart," said Tandy Australia's marketing director, Robert Hayes.

"The Canadian site offers a range of products, information and services, and we intend to adopt a similar strategy," Hayes said.

Tandy Australia and Canada's Radioshack are both owned by Intertan -- an independent international arm of the US-based Tandy Group that operates the Radioshack franchise throughout the US.

Meanwhile, Tandy Australia is also in the process of finalising partnership agreements between itself, Sony, Panasonic and Kodak, which will see the company establish a 'store-in-a-store' concept similar to that announced between Microsoft and the Tandy Group in the US.

The US deal will see the 7000 Radioshack stores across the US establish the concept in an aim to promote Microsoft's range of Internet products for dial-up and broadband Internet access.

Hayes said Tandy, which has more than 300 stores in Australia, has a close marketing and merchandising affiliation with its US counterpart, and said the company was looking to establish similar arrangements with companies like Microsoft and Compaq in Australia.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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!

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.
