Web site promises "Razor Prices"

In an initiative born out of need - like most inventions are - a 19-year-old information technology student has developed a Web site which brings together the latest and best prices for computer components sold on the Net.

David Rugendyke, a second-year student at Southern Cross University, Lismore, saw the need for a comprehensive hardware search engine when he was looking to upgrade his own PC.

Nine months in the making and he has launched Razor Prices (http://www.razorprices.wcq.com.au) -- a search engine running on an Excel database and featuring the major PC components at the latest prices.

Currently 10 Australian online retailers are participating in Razor Prices, but Rugendyke says he has had an influx of inquiries since PC World's sister publication Australian Reseller News published a story about the site.

Rugendyke is now sorting through the inquiries, trying to achieve a balance between retailers in each state.

Retailer participation in Razor Prices is free of charge, says Rugendyke: "As long as they can get a price list to us whenever they update, they can participate."

"The site is a non-profit at the moment and I hope it can stay that way," he added.

Currently a one-man-show, Rugendyke is looking for sponsorship to cover costs, he says he may in the future need to hire staff if the site continues to grow.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
